Peter Phillips tipped as Queen’s ‘special’ grandson
Insiders have claimed that Peter Phillips is considered to be the Queen’s “special” grandson, though Prince Harry says he shares a “really special” bond with his grandmother.
Prince Harry spoke of the Queen’s “sense of humor” in an interview with NBC earlier this week and about his 96-year-old grandmother he said: “Her sense of humor and her ability to see the humor in so many different things.
“We have a really special relationship.
“We talk about things that she can’t talk about with anybody else.”
However, royal expert Richard Kay has reported that insiders told him that if there was a “special one” among his grandsons, it would be Princess Anne’s son, Peter Phillips – and not Harry.
Kay said the monarch has “always been scrupulous to avoid any accusations of favouritism when it comes to her grandchildren”.
Writing in the Daily Mail, Mr Kay also added: “She has always been close to Peter and admires the way he and his sister Zara handled themselves as grandchildren of the monarch but without royal titles.
“She thinks Peter especially inherited the resilience that is so characteristic of Anne.
“She sees him as dependable.”
