The Queen is not immune to hurt her grandson Harry’s feelings as she’s been through it all with her late sister, Princess Margaret.
The royal historian Robert Lacey told People magazine, “She has a particular sensitivity to what Harry has been going through because of her closeness to Margaret and seeing the same dramas and tensions played out two generations ago”.
Margaret, who happened to be vivacious and witty often struggled in the shadow of her older sister whose tumultuous relationship has even featured as a prominent storyline in the popular Netflix drama “The Crown.”

Lacey noted, “The younger-sibling syndrome is an enduring problem. The system has not found a way of giving them the recognition that they need.”
He later on added saying, “The Queen will be very disappointed. Her job is to survive.”
The Undue Demise Of Princess Margaret
Princess Margaret passed away in 2002 at the age of 71 due to health issues followed by several strokes. Four years younger than the reigning monarch, Margaret — at one time second in line to the throne — was rammed down the succession ladder following the birth of Prince Charles in 1948.
The Unprecedented Succession
Harry and Prince William who were incredibly close growing up, have reportedly grown apart since his marriage to Meghan Markle.
It seems, Harry has been nothing but a doting uncle to William’s three children with Kate Middleton, while the historian shared issues about the Queen and her sister when she got married and had children.
He said, ‘Until Elizabeth produced heirs, Margaret was a possible future Queen. It is a family situation of conflict that goes back over generations.’ In addition to trying to carve out their own path in the royal family, Harry and Margaret both lost parents at young ages.
