Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Harry and his family arrived in Scotland to grieve her loss.
The Duke of Sussex visited Balmoral Castle on Thursday, where his grandmother passed away “peacefully.”
When the Queen’s death was announced publicly, shortly afterward, his flight landed, and he was not the only family member to arrive on the scene.
As Harry stepped off the plane and got in a car, he drove to Balmoral Castle and joined other family members in mourning the loss of his grandmother.
Earlier in the day, Prince Harry disembarked separately from his brother Prince William, following his arrival at the airport alongside his uncles Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, and Edward’s wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
During his visit to Balmoral, Harry was also joined by his father, King Charles III, and Camilla, the Queen Consort. Several engagements were scheduled for Charles on Wednesday in Scotland.
Earlier this week, Princess Anne, the Queen’s only daughter, has also been in Scotland fulfilling royal duties.
According to his spokesperson, Harry headed to Scotland alone on Thursday. It is unclear whether Meghan Markle would join Harry at the funeral.
Kate Middleton, Prince William’s wife, along with their three children, is also expected to be in Windsor since their children have just started their first day of school on Thursday.
Earlier this evening, Harry and Meghan were scheduled to attend the WellChild Awards in London, where Harry was going to deliver a speech. However, they canceled their appearance at the event following Queen’s death.
As part of their long-standing charitable activities, they traveled from their California home to Europe this week.
Queen Elizabeth passed away on Thursday at the age of 96, according to an official statement.
Buckingham Palace published a statement saying, “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.”
In addition, the statement continued, “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
