Upon his arrival at Balmoral, the prince harry was greeted by Princess Anne who immediately took him to the Queen’s remains. The husband of Meghan Markle explains then that he gently approached the body of the queen before observing her for long minutes, in absolute calm. He then approached her in order to whisper a few words to her: “I walked forward uncertainly, and I saw her. I stood still […] I whispered that I hoped she was happy, and that she was with Grandpa”.
A particularly moving moment for Prince Harry, who was close to his grandmother despite his estrangement from the royal family.
