THE Queen tried to get Prince Harry and his father to talk in their final months after Prince Charles stopped taking his calls begging for cash, sources tell The Sun.
Harry, 37, is said to have “been bombarding” his grandmother with calls when she was tasked with light duties because of her declining mobility.
Her Majesty – who retired from important duties and left Charles in charge of most matters after the death of her husband Prince Philip – was unable and unwilling to deal with Harry’s inquiries, it is claimed.
And when she asked her son and heir to the throne why he took emails and not phone calls from Harry, Charles reportedly replied, “Because I’m not a bank.”
A source revealed: “The late Queen was always fond of talking to Harry, but when he asked for money she said, ‘Why don’t you talk to your father?’
“Harry told her that Charles didn’t take his calls anymore.
“Charles insisted his son needs to email him instead. Members of the family, including William, had stopped speaking to Harry when they found out about his book deal, fearing what they said might end up in print.
“Harry isn’t doing as well as people would like you to believe. He wanted money.
“When the Queen asked Charles what he was doing about her taking so many calls, he said to her, ‘I’m not a bank.’
The Sun understands that Charles, then Prince of Wales, asked his son to email inquiries through his personal assistant.
The news comes after claims of tense phone calls between the father and son during the Megxit talks.
Sources close to Charles insist that “he loves his two sons very much”.
Harry and Meghan claim to be financially independent after giving up royal duty to live in America, where they have signed multimillion-pound deals with Netflix and Spotify.
Harry received a £17.5million advance for the memoir Spare, which is due out on January 10 – as part of a £35million four-book deal.
He also reportedly has a job as chief impact officer for Silicon Valley firm Better Up.
But he slammed his father in a March 2020 interview with Oprah Winfrey, claiming he was “literally cut off financially.”
This is despite Palace financial records showing his father gave him £2million in financial year 2020/21.
But the latest papers show Charles has not paid any money from the Duchy of Cornwall’s funds over the past year.
Now King, he has access to vast sums of money through the private estate of the Duchy of Lancaster, while William holds the purse strings of the Duchy of Cornwall.
But Harry and Meghan have mounting expenses, including paying security guards, paying their $9.5 million mortgage in Montecito and a penchant for private jets.
In March, Harry claimed on US breakfast television that he regularly talks to his grandmother.
He said: “We have a very special relationship. We talk about things she can’t talk to anyone else about.”
A spokesman for Charles this summer said Harry and Meghan are “financially independent” and said: “Great credit to them.”
The royal family was rocked this week when Netflix released a 60-second trailer for the couple’s six-part docuseries, titled Harry & Meghan.
Insiders believe the trailer was aired on purpose to sabotage or hijack the Prince and Princess of Wales’ three-day trip to Boston this week.
William and Kate are there for his £50m Earthshot Prize funding programs from around the world to help save the planet.
A Tory MP has branded the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “pathetic” after their Netflix attack on the royals.
Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely even threatened to use backbench legislation to strip Harry’s title so he could read “Mr. Windsor” would be.
He told TalkTV: “I don’t know what went wrong in their lives, I just think they’re this pathetic, narcissistic, smug couple, they’re awful.
“Why on earth are we allowing him to keep his titles if he hates this country and hates the monarchy?”
“If I had time I’d bring a private Bill to say if you’re going to hate the monarchy you’re Mr Windsor – jog grow up.”
