The Queen, 95, has urged Prince William to stop flying in helicopters with the Cambridges over safety fears, The Sun reported. Royal expert Russell Myers explained if disaster struck, it would impede on the line of succession and Prince Harry would be forced to come back to the UK.
Speaking to ITV’s This Morning, Mr Myers said: “There’s an old age rule that members of the Royal Family don’t travel together and the reason is because if disaster did strike, you would potentially have the line of succession absolutely obliterated.
“The Queen has apparently had a quiet heard in William’s ear and said, ‘it’s about time to take your hand of the controls, split the family up when you are travelling whether it’s up to Norfolk or abroad’.
“The reason is if with the Cambridge, unfortunately, tragedy did happen, we would see Prince Harry having to come back and take the line of succession.
“Obviously that would be quite a hot potato with the Sussexes leaving the Royal Family and setting up home in America.
“He’ll do what his granny asks him, I’m sure.”
Prince Harry stepped down from royal duties in March 2020 and moved to the US to become financially independent with Meghan Markle.
It comes as Harry and Meghan have been urged to return to the UK to spend Christmas with the Queen by a royal commentator.
Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, have not given any suggestion around where they will spend Christmas but many have speculated if they will return to visit the Royal Family.

Royal commentator Gwen Flamberg insisted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should visit as the Queen is “not getting any younger”.
Concern for the health of the Queen has been heightened in recent weeks after she pulled out of a number of major engagements, spent a night in hospital, and was ordered to rest by royal doctors.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Ms Flamberg said: “I wish that they would go for Christmas.
“The Queen’s Christmas brunch is always a very big deal.

“I’m not quite sure if it will go off as it did before the pandemic because the pandemic is still going on.
“But let’s just say, she’s not getting any younger and I would hope they would spend ample time together.”
Harry and Meghan, formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, moved to California last year to lead a more independent life. Harry has said that part of the reason for their departure was the racist treatment of Meghan, whose mother is Black and whose father is white, by the British tabloid media.
