Prince Harry  felt  "helpless," after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth was admitted  to a hospital in London, reported UK's Daily Express citing sources close to the monarch's grandson. Another report said the  Duke was "in panic mode" after learning that the Queen had been hospitalized. 

 The Duke of Sussex  is settled in the US along with his wife Meghan Markle and two children after stepping down from his royal duties .

Social media users  are wondering whether  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would visit his "ailing" grandmother .

Queen Elizabeth II will take medical advice and rest for "at least" another two weeks, Buckingham Palace said Friday, having recently spent a night in hospital to undergo "preliminary examinations".

Doctors have advised that the 95-year-old, who is due to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee marking 70 years on the throne next year, can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties, said the statement.

She will conduct some virtual audiences, but will not undertake any official visits.

"It remains the Queen´s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on 14th November," added the statement.

After seven decades of relentless service, a night in hospital forced the queen to take medical advice to slow down.

She cancelled her appearance at the UN climate conference, which starts on Sunday in Scotland, a rare move for the workaholic monarch and all the more telling given her personal commitment to environmental issues.

Buckingham Palace said she was "disappointed" to pull out, but that the decision was taken following medical advice "to rest".

The Queen took a step back from work on October 20, the day after a reception at Windsor Castle where she chatted with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and US billionaire Bill Gates.

She spent the following night in hospital, her first since 2013, where Buckingham Palace said she underwent "preliminary examinations".

The monarch had appeared in strong form in public until recently, despite the loss of her 99-year-old husband Prince Philip in April.

She had been attending official engagements almost daily, similar to her pre-pandemic workload, since returning from her traditional summer holiday in Balmoral, Scotland.
