It was just a little tweet from a journalist, but this one was tough. After it became known at noon on Thursday, September 8th, that Queen Elizabeth II is dying , had Harry and Meghan have announced through a spokesman that they will immediately make their way to Balmoral Castle. Together! However, this should not have met with enthusiasm behind the palace walls. Father Charles is said to have made it clear to his son on the phone that Meghan was not welcome in Scotland, at least that's what the newspaper 'The Sun' claims to have learned.

Notoriously, Harry eventually backtracked. Made his way to Scotland alone. It is unclear how much pressure the palace put on him. Valuable time may have been lost in the back and forth at the end. Because the 37-year-old grandson of the Queen was too late to say goodbye to his grandmother.

Meghan cancels appearances and projects

It has also been revealed that Meghan has canceled several scheduled appearances in New York that were scheduled for the day after the Queen's likely funeral date. The Duchess of Sussex was scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, 47, on September 20, the same day she and Harry were also due to attend the UN General Assembly in Manhattan.

Reconciliation in sight?

Can the mourning for the Queen reunite the family?

Above all, the conciliatory message to his youngest son surprised many royal fans. (abl)
