Prince Harry is said to have learned of the Queen's death just five minutes before the public - reported 'The Telegraph' on Sunday evening (September 18). Accordingly, King Charles only told his son about the death of the Queen shortly before the big announcement to the public. But is that really true? In a rare statement, the palace has now spoken up and clarified.
Just five minutes before the official announcement, the royal dropout is said to have found out about his grandmother's death – to humiliate him? By this time, the new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, had been aware of the earth-shattering news for over two hours. So far it was only known that Prince Harry did not manage to say goodbye to the Queen.
The palace has now commented on the rumours, saying: 'The public was only informed after all family members had been informed,' said the new King Charles III in a brief statement. 'Daily Mail' assumes that Harry was on the flight to Scotland and that's why he wasn't reached for so long. He learned of the Queen's death immediately after landing.
The Telegraph has since changed the report, confirming that Harry was not treated any differently than other family members.
The Queen died on September 8 at her summer residence, Balmoral Castle, Buckingham Palace said in an official statement.
Britain and the world bid farewell to the longest-serving queen in the history of the British monarchy. On Monday, September 19, 2022, she will be buried in the memorial chapel of her father, King George VI. buried. Alongside her husband Prince Philip.
