Prince Harry Learned About The Queen's Death Via BBC News?
The Duke of Sussex shared various encounters and incidents with the royal family in his tell-all book. Among the things he shared was how he learned about his dear grandmother's death.
According to Prince Harry, he learned about the news of the Queen's death online after his plane landed and after reading about his wife, Meghan Markle's text.
"When the plane started to descend, I saw my mobile phone light up," Prince Harry wrote in the excerpt obtained by The Mirror. "It was a message from Meg: 'Call me as soon as you read this'. I checked the BBC webpage. My grandmother had died. My father was the King."
He continued, "I put on a black tie, stepped off the plane into heavy drizzle."
Prince Harry's claim in his book came after reports that he wasn't informed about the late monarch's death. However, the palace denied the allegation.
