Prince Harry and William as well as Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have arrived to say goodbye to Queen Elizabeth.
On September 8 at 7:30 p.m., the world stood still.
The British Royal House announced in an official press release that Queen Elizabeth has fallen asleep, after 70 years in power. Earlier that day, the royal family came out and said that the Queen’s health had deteriorated and that she needed medical attention.
A couple of hours later she died, in her bed in Balmoral in Scotland. She lived to be 96 years old.
The whole family was summoned in a flash to say goodbye. But Prince Harry landed a quarter of an hour late and never got to say goodbye to a beloved grandfather. Once he landed, he was alone – Meghan Markle was not there.

According to information to the Daily Mail, Meghan Markle was not welcome. Her relationship with the royal family has been chilly to say the least – with many different quarrels. It is all based on the fact that she has felt unfairly treated, which has led to her finally leaving the royal house to move to the United States – with Prince Harry.
After all the fights – now Harry and William are in place
According to the BBC’s court reporter, it may have been because she was worried about not feeling welcome. Even King Charles is said to have informed the prince that it would not be appropriate for Meghan Markle to come along.
But it wasn’t just Meghan who was absent. So was Duchess Kate. The reason was that she had to stay with children Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, who were doing their first day of school.
So now everyone is gathered. Harry and William walked side by side behind their grandmother’s coffin last week, inevitably reminiscent of when the princes walked behind their mother Diana’s coffin after her death in 1997.

But neither Meghan nor Kate were allowed to join the procession, instead traveling in cars to Westminster Hall. It caused the British press to immediately start speculating about a possible rift between the sisters-in-law. This is because they drove in two different cars – instead of together in one.
Prince Harry has previously announced that he will release a book. It will be about the British royal family and according to consensus, Harry will reveal troubling details to the entire family. According to a source, the prince will take on King Charles. Something that has created great concern within the British royal family. At the same time, it is now clear that the book will be postponed as a result of the Queen’s passing. He will also write a separate chapter about her funeral.
