While the Queen was dying, the Duke of Sussex stated that he was “not invited” to board the royal family’s journey from southern England to Scotland on September 8. In a new, disturbing interview with American journalist Anderson Cooper for CBS’s 60 Minutes, Prince Harry recalled arriving at Balmoral Castle alone, hours after his older brother Prince William.
The Prince of Wales had traveled north of the border with Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
In a lengthy sit-down made public on Sunday night, Harry made the following assertions only hours before the Duke’s memoirs Spare’s formal release: “I questioned my brother. What are your plans? How are you and Kate getting on the mountain? Then, a few hours later, all of the family members from Windsor and Ascot boarded a plane with 12, 14, or possibly 16 seats at once.”
Mr. Cooper then asked Harry if he had been invited to board the plane, to which Harry replied, “I was not invited.”
Harry recalled the historic day further, remembering that his aunt, Princess Anne, had welcomed him to Balmoral Castle.
He landed at Elizabeth II’s beloved Scottish residence after the Queen had died.
“My aunt was there to greet me as soon as I entered the corridor,” Harry explained. She then asked if I wanted to see her.”
“I thought about it for about five seconds before asking, “Is this a good idea?” “You know what?” I said. You are capable of accomplishing this. You must say your goodbyes. So I went upstairs, took off my jacket, and spent time with her alone.”
When asked where he found the Queen, Harry said, “In her chamber. I was truly overjoyed for her because she was tired of living.”
“Her spouse was waiting for her when she had completed living her life. They are also buried together.”
In a separate interview that aired on Sunday, Prince Harry detailed the day his grandmother died.
“My family members had a really, extremely awful reaction the day she passed away,” he said in an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby.
“They were then supposedly on the back foot after the briefings, the leaking, and the planning, at least based on what I saw and what other people most certainly witnessed. “
“Can we come together as a family?” I asked. We’ve come to celebrate Grandma’s life and to grieve her death. But I’m not sure how we can do it together.”
