Prince Harry reportedly had no chance to see Queen Elizabeth alive because she had already passed away when he boarded the plane to fly to Scotland, according to a report.
Prince Harry Was Reportedly Informed About The Queen's Death 3 Hours After Her Death
The Duke of Sussex rushed to fly to Scotland when he was informed about the Queen's deteriorating health. He chartered a £30,000 private jet in an attempt to still see his grandmother before she died, The Sun reported.
However, Prince Harry reportedly discovered that his grandmother had already passed away five minutes before Buckingham Palace released a statement to the public about her death. He reached Scotland at nearly 7 p.m.
Based on the Queen's death certificate, the late monarch died at 3:10 p.m. local time on Sept. 8, so when Prince Harry boarded the plane at London Luton, the Queen had already passed away.
He had no chance to see his grandmother alive because she had already died three hours before he received the phone call about her death.
Buckingham Palace first raised the alarm about the Queen's health at 12:35 p.m. on Sept. 8. Her Majesty's doctors were concerned about her health, and she had been placed under medical supervision.
At 1:50 p.m. Prince Harry's spokesperson announced he would be travelling to Scotland. He boarded the plane at 5:34 p.m. At 6:46 p.m., news of the Queen's death was announced to the public.
Queen Elizabeth's Cause Of Death
Queen Elizabeth died of "old age", according to her death certificate. Unfortunately, only two of her children were present when she breathed her last.
Only King Charles and Princess Anne were already in Balmoral at the time. The new monarch and Princess Royal were in Scotland for official engagements.
Most of the members of the royal family were just like Prince Harry, they were too late to bid their final goodbye to Her Majesty. Prince Andrew and Prince Edward travelled with Prince William. They arrived in Scotland shortly after 5 p.m., two hours after the Queen passed away.
Queen Elizabeth had a state funeral on Sept. 19. at Westminster Abbey in Central London. A committal service was held at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle that afternoon.
