Prince Harry, 38, was unable to say goodbye to his grandmother on September 8, 2022. When the ex-senior royal arrived in Scotland that day, Queen Elizabeth, † 96, was already dead. Only King Charles, 73, and Princess Anne, 72, accompanied their mother in her final hours.
Why Prince Harry missed his flight to Balmoral
Since then, it has been rumored why Prince Harry arrived in Scotland later than his family members. A new report from the British newspaper "The Sun" now reveals that Harry allegedly discussed for too long with his father why Duchess Meghan, 41, should not accompany him to Balmoral – and that's why the flight with Prince Andrew, 62, and Prince Edward, 58, missed. "Harry was so busy getting Meghan to Balmoral and arguing with his family that he missed the flight," says an anonymous source.
"Harry was so angry that he refused to eat with his father and brother"
Arrived in Scotland, Prince Harry is said to have been so angry that, despite the grief for his beloved "Granny", he turned down his father's invitation to have dinner with him and Prince William, 40. Instead he dined with Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Countess Sophie of Wessex, 57. "Charles has an open invitation for Harry to dine with him whenever he is in the country. But Harry was so angry that he refused to go with "It was a massive snub. And he left Balmoral as soon as possible to catch the first commercial flight back to London," the insider said.
The next morning, Harry was the first member of the royal family to leave. He took an early British Airways flight from Aberdeen to London alone to be back with wife Meghan as soon as possible - and to escape his family.
