PRINCE Harry has been slammed as “arrogant” by royal experts after claiming that he is “protecting” the Queen after their secret meeting last week.
The Duke of Sussex said he wanted the “right people” around his grandmother in the trailer clip for an explosive chat to be aired on the Today Show later today.
Harry, 37, said Her Majesty, 95, has a “great sense of humour” and that he and wife Meghan, 40, had tea while in Windsor.
The Sun exclusively revealed Harry returned to the UK and met with the Queen last week with his wife Meghan Markle.
Speaking to US journalist Hoda Kotb, Harry said: "Being with her, it was great. It was just so nice to see her.
"You know she's on great form. She's always got a great sense of humor with me.

But royal experts have slammed the royal as being “arrogant” and that his comments were “insulting” to the rest of the family.
Royal Author Angela Levin, who wrote Harry’s biography, has been a long-standing critic of the Duke walking away from his family.
She said: “In 15 mins Harry felt he made sure the Queen is 'protected and has the right people around her'.

“His comment on US TV is a gross insult to all the royal family, the royal doctors and all the aides around HM. His arrogance knows no bounds.”
Robert Jobson described the statement made by the Duke of Sussex as “odd”, and hoped that it would not be “another Oprah”.
He added: "Prince Harry says on US TV he is making sure the Queen is 'protected and has the right people around her'.
"How so? I think you’ll find that Prince Charles and Her Majesty’s children and William are DOING just that and supporting the Queen, with actions – and not just words.
“I hope the US interview is not another Oprah where brash statements by Harry are unchallenged.”
TalkTv host Piers Morgan has also slammed the Duke, blasting him for "moving 6,000 miles away."
Both Harry and Meghan stepped back from royal life after walking away from the family in January 2020.
The couple have lived in Santa Barbara for more than two years with their two children – Archie, two, and Lilibet, who is almost one.
Harry told Kotb that it was really nice to catch up with the Queen before revealing that the US now feels like home to him.
He said: "Both Meg and I had tea with her. It was really nice to catch up with her.
"Home for me now is, for the time being, it's in the States. And it really feels that way as well.
"We've been welcomed with open arms and we've got such a great community up in Santa Barbara."
The full interview is set to air on the Today Show at 12pm today, with the announcement coming on day three of Harry's games for wounded servicemen and women.
The interview is also expected to shed new light on Harry's life with wife Meghani in the states.
Harry remains at his Invictus Games after Meghan flew home to Los Angeles – telling well-wishers she misses her two children Archie and Lilibet.

The couple's every move is being captured by a team from Netflix as part of a multi million dollar deal.
Last week, the Sun exclusively revealed how Harry and Meghan met Charles, Camilla and the Queen at Windsor Castle on Thursday.
It was their first face-to-face meeting with family members in more than two years, with Prince Harry offering an “olive branch” to his father.
It is understood that the couple also met with Camilla, but did not make an attempt to speak to his brother William or his wife Kate.
An insider said of Thursday’s UK visit: “Harry contacted his father and said he wanted to meet.”
Sources have claimed the Queen invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to join the Royal Family on the Buckingham Palace balcony in June.
