In her official statement, the Duke of Sussex was proudly described by his grandmother as her "most dearly beloved grandson," and, considering how far they have come together, we can't help but take this literally.

One of the instances that prove that the Queen will go above and beyond for both Prince Harry and his brother, William, was how she handled the media after their mother, Princess Diana, passed away more than 20 years ago.

In a BBC documentary titled Diana: 7 Days, the brothers talked about how their father, Prince Charles, and their grandmother helped them through the weeks and months following their mother's death.

"He was there for us," Prince Harry said of his father. Then, Prince William added the special thing the Queen did to show her support and care.

He said:

At the time, my grandmother wanted to protect her two grandsons. And my father as well. Our grandmother deliberately removed the newspapers, and things like that, so there was nothing in the house at all. We didn't know what was going on.

Prince William appreciated this because he and his brother were given the time and privacy to mourn away from distracting news and prying eyes.

To Prince Harry, the Queen was more than just a grandmother.

Two years ago, in honor of Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday, a documentary titled Elizabeth at 90 - A Family Tribute was released in her honor.

The documentary gave the world a little bit more of an insight into how other members of the royal family, including how Prince Harry sees the Queen.

Prince Harry used this opportunity to explain how, to him, Queen Elizabeth II was much more than a grandmother.

He said:

I still view her more as the queen than my grandmother. You have this huge amount of respect for your boss and I always view her as my boss, but occasionally as a grandmother.

Don't let this fool you into thinking the pair has a purely business-like relationship.

It's safe to say that, considering these adorable moments between them, the Queen and Harry share a pretty special bond.

And we never tire of seeing it.
