The shocking claim made by Prince Harry, 38, in his 60 Minutes interview was that he was not invited to travel to Scotland's Balmoral Castle on the day that Queen Elizabeth II passed away.
Harry said in the interview, "What are your plans? How are you and Kate getting up there? I asked my brother.".
After that, everyone in the family who lives close to Windsor and Ascot boarded a plane together, which had 12, 14, or possibly 16 seats, according to him. Harry confirmed he was not invited to board the plane.
However, the Duke of Sussex arrived after the Queen had already passed away. Harry took a private jet alone to Balmoral Castle while Meghan stayed behind.
My aunt [Princess Anne] was waiting to welcome me when I entered the hallway, Harry said.
You know what, you can do this You need to say goodbye' So I went upstairs, took my jacket off, and walked in and just spent some time with her by myself. ...
...When she asked if I wanted to see her, I gave it five seconds of thought before saying, "You know what, you can do this You need to say goodbye.".
The father of two remarked that he was genuinely happy for her.
Her husband, Prince Phillip, was waiting for her when she finished living, and the two of them are buried together.
For the promotion of his memoir Spare, in which he describes his complicated relationship with his family, Harry has been giving interviews.
Harry asserted in book excerpts obtained by ABC News that King Charles had forbidden Meghan from visiting Queen Elizabeth on the day of her passing.
Harry is said to have replied, "Don't ever speak about my wife that way," to his father. A source told DailyMail that William's wife Kate Middleton, 41, ...
...was also asked not to attend the event at Balmoral Castle because the family wished to maintain the Queen's entourage as small and private as possible.
When the brothers approached their mother's coffin, it evoked the funeral of Princess Diana 25 years prior.
