PRINCE William and Kate Middleton put on a brave face today after Harry snubbed the Queen in an explosive interview.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Disasters Emergency Committee HQ in London on the Queen's birthday.
There, the couple discussed the group's support for people affected by the conflict in Ukraine, where Putin's forces have displaced millions.
Their visit came hours after Prince Harry sparked a fresh row by announcing on US TV that he is “protecting” the Queen.
The Duke of Sussex claimed on NBC Today he was ensuring Her Majesty has “got the right people around her”.
Palace aides were left reeling by the “breathtaking arrogance” of Harry, who until last week had not seen his gran for more than a year.

A post read: "Today as the Queen turns 96, we’re sharing this photograph taken when she was two-years-old.
"Then Princess Elizabeth, she was the eldest daughter of The Duke and Duchess of York and was never expected to become Queen.
"Her life changed in 1936 when her uncle, King Edward VIII abdicated, her father became King George VI and the young Princess became the heir presumptive.
"Following the sad death of her father in 1952, Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II aged just 25, and this year is celebrating 70 years on the throne – a first in British history."
