A source close to the prince, who has moved to Montecito, in California, with his family, said she also told him to uphold the Royal Family’s values.
The source told The Mirror: “Harry has spoken to the Queen, and she told him she was delighted he has found happiness. She only wants the best for him and his family
“She has seen him struggle with his position in the family and had always had a great deal of affection and sympathy for him.”
Harry recently spoke out about his new life during an appearance on The Late Late Show, where he told host James Corden his move to the US was about “stepping back, rather than stepping down”.
He also revealed the Queen bought her great-grandson Archie a waffle maker for Christmas – and now “waffle” is the first word he says in the morning.
The Queen is said to like to receive and give practical presents, not overly extravagant ones, at Christmas.
Harry went on to say about Archie: “He has the most amazing personality and is already putting three or four words together, he’s already singing songs.”
Corden, who performed at Harry and Meghan’s wedding, chatted to the duke during an open-top-bus ride around Los Angeles for the actor’s US talk show The Late Late Show With James Corden.
The duke said his grandparents, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, know how to make online video calls – but Philip has a rather abrupt way of ending them.
“We have Zoomed them a few times – they have seen Archie running around,” Harry said.
“But my grandfather, instead of pressing leave meeting, he just goes…” and Harry gestured as if slamming shut a laptop, and laughed as he said: “OK, bye.”
