Queen Elizabeth news: Hard-working Maj kept busy with meeting new PM Liz Truss as Prince Harry & Meghan jet into UK | The Sun

THE Queen continues to fulfill her duties as she prepares to meet new PM Liz Truss this week – as Harry & Meghan start their UK tour.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have officially touched down in the UK and will visit Manchester today – but aren't expected to meet with any of the Royal family, it has been reported.

On September 6, Boris Johnson will leave Downing Street for the last time and fly to Balmoral – where he will meet the new PM and the Queen.

Liz Truss will then meet the Queen before officially becoming Britain's third female Prime Minister and the 15th to serve under Queen Elizabeth II.

On top of this, the Duke and Duchess have come to the UK amid a storm of allegations, after Meghan released her podcast, and dropped bombshell claims to New York magazine The Cut.

But as the Duke and Duchess' visit sparks a frenzy among royal fans, a long-awaited reunion with Prince William and Kate Middleton does not seem likely.

    Former royal butler describes Prince Charles as an 'absolute gentleman'

    Former royal butler Grant Harrold has been full of praise for the Prince of Wales.

    Recalling the future monarch's impeccable manners, Harrold told Slingo: “Working with him was great, he was an absolute gentleman, great fun, very funny and always polite.

    "I remember once – I’ve never told this before, so here’s a first. I was at a dinner and one of the guests didn’t say please or thank you. Not once. Prince Charles always said please and thank you, always. His manners are impeccable.

    "He noticed this because he was sitting next to this person and I noticed that anytime I would bring him something, he would always say thank you, but he really emphasised it, ‘Thank you so much Grant, we’re really lucky to have you as part of the team, thank you,’ and it would get to the main course and he’d say it again."

    He said: “In many ways, stripping them with the title isn’t blindly going to make any difference.

    “In Meghan’s magazine interview, there was a point in where she was referred to a ‘Princess’ and that was not even corrected.

    “The Queen is a head of an organisation. She is the boss.”
