PRINCE Harry went into “panic mode” when the Queen was taken into hospital for an overnight stay, it is claimed.
The Duke of Sussex reportedly felt “helpless” after learning the news in his LA home thousands of miles away.
And it’s understood he’s been “checking in non-stop” to ensure his grandmother is feeling better, an unsubstantiated source told US Weekly.
“He felt helpless being 5,000 miles away in Montecito, and has been checking in non-stop with her,” they said.

Remaining a secret – for now?
A JUDGE agreed to keep a legal agreement between Prince Andrew’s sex assault accuser and Jeffrey Epstein a secret yesterday – but admitted it might eventually be made public.
Lawyers for Virginia Roberts Giuffre had handed over a copy of a “release” signed in 2009 – following her legal settlement with sex trafficker Epstein.
Attorneys for Andrew, 61, have reviewed the document and look set to argue that it makes him exempt from any culpability in her bombshell sex assault claims against him.
Andrew Brettler, one of Andrew’s lawyers, made a request to file the release in secret – which was granted yesterday by US District Judge Lewis Kaplan.
He said the agreement “releases Prince Andrew and others from any purported liability arising from the claims Ms Giuffre asserted against Prince Andrew here”.
But the judge hinted that the document may be made public in future.

Mansion next to Prince Harry & Meghan Markle sells for whopping £14M
The plush pad next door to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's mansion appears to have sold for a whopping £14million.
The staggering sum has bought the mystery buyer a mansion in an exclusive celeb enclave, next door to the royal couple.
The seven-bed, 13-bathroom estate was originally on sale for a cool $22.5million (about £16.3million) in March this year (2021).
But it has since sold for the reduced price of $19,100,000 (about £14million), according to Realtor.com.
Harry and Meghan’s Chateau of Riven Rock pad is visible behind trees on the estate in aerial photos shared online by the US real estate agent.

The Crown to include 'keystone moment' of Diana's Bashir interview
The fifth series of Netflix drama The Crown will dramatise the headline-making 1995 Panorama interview with Diana, Princess of Wales, according to reports.
That interview, conducted by then-BBC journalist Martin Bashir, made global headlines as the princess spoke openly about her marriage to the Prince of Wales, famously telling Bashir “there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded”.
An insider said: “The Crown's creators see the interview as the keystone moment in series five.
“To the writers, the stormy marriage between Charles and Di led up to her outpouring on Panorama, and the aftermath of that decision defined her final months.
“They are making a huge investment in that. The Crown has a track record of delving into areas of the Royal Family's history they'd rather be left alone.”

No paths crossed
Kate Middleton & William are unlikely to meet Harry & Meghan at the Earthshot Prize in the US as they could ‘steal their thunder’.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the king and queen of green as they awarded the winners of a £50million planet saving prize earlier this month.
Speaking at a reception afterwards, William said: “We raised the bar — now over to the US.”
Royal author Phil Dampier told Fabulous that it would be a “logical step” for William and Kate to attend the ceremony across the pond in 2022 – where Meghan and Harry have set up their new life.
However, Phil added that any chance of a reconciliation between the two couples is unlikely.
He explained: “I don’t think William and Kate would want to meet up with Harry and Meghan, who could try and steal their thunder on the earth shot project.
“They are very much rivals now, not brothers in arms, and I’m afraid I can’t see a reconciliation soon.”
