There’s no end to the royal beef… Prince Harry only found out that Queen Elizabeth II had died when he read reports online. According to information from the Page Six portal, released this Thursday (22), sources linked to Buckingham Palace denied the initial statement by royal representatives, that all members of the royal family were informed of the monarch’s death before the public.

According to the report, on September 8, when Elizabeth II died at the age of 96, Harry would have tried desperately to get to his grandmother’s bedside to say goodbye. On the date, however, the prince only arrived at Balmoral Castle, in Scotland, hours after the queen’s death.

To Page Six, a Buckingham Palace contact said that, earlier this morning, Harry was summoned to Scotland by his father, King Charles III. On the other hand, another palace source stated that, in reality, no member of the royal family would have called the Duke of Sussex to inform him of his grandmother’s death, and that, therefore, he would have discovered the news on the web, when he landed on the island. late afternoon.

Amid the controversy that Diana’s youngest son would only have been informed about five minutes before the public, Buckingham spoke out. “The public was only informed after all family members were informed.”, said the representatives of the crown, last Sunday (18).

After the Queen’s funeral, which took place on Monday (19), Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, traveled back to their home in Montecito, California. The return took place on Wednesday (21), so that the couple could stay with their children, Archie and Lilibet, who did not travel to the United Kingdom. “I think the way Harry and Meghan have appeared over the last few days shows that they were just waiting to do the right thing and the right thing for everyone.,” said a source close to the royal family.

This week, Gayle King, a friend of Meghan and Harry who was in London to cover the funeral, said: “There were efforts on both sides… to, like, set things right.”. In a chat with “CBS Mornings,” King added: “Great families always go through drama, always go through turmoil. It remains to be seen: will they be drawn closer to each other or will they be separated? … I don’t have the inside information on this, but I’ll tell you something: it was nice to see Harry together with his family.“.

The occasion of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral was the first time Harry had been with the entire family since he and Markle resigned from their real-life roles in March 2020 and moved to California, in the United States.
