King Charles Responds To Claim Prince Harry Was Informed Of Queen’s Death After The Public

In response to claims that Prince Harry was not notified of Queen Elizabeth II’s death until after the news went public, a spokesperson for King Charles released a statement clarifying that “the public was only informed after every member had been informed.”

The confusion appears to stem from the fact that, at the time of the Queen’s passing, Harry was aboard a flight to Scotland. It was not until the plane landed that the family was able to get through to him to relate the news of her death.

Despite the delay, the representative for Charles assured the public that Harry was treated no differently from any other family member, and they waited until they could contact him to release the news publicly.

“Everybody was trying to get where they needed to be,” claimed the unnamed source.

“And the King was adamant that the official statement must not be released until all members of the family had been informed,” the source continued. “That was a father talking, because he cares.”

The Telegraph, the publication that made the claim that Harry was told later than the public, has since taken down the original story, clarifying that Harry was told five minutes before the press release.

This is only one of the details being scrutinized between the Crown and Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle.

There is speculation that Harry and Meghan were uninvited to an official state event being held for hundreds of world leaders and foreign royalty coming to pay their respects to the late Queen.

Furthermore, on Monday, Harry attended his grandmother’s funeral in a dark suit, looking on as others in his family, including his brother, William, donned military uniforms.

“His decade of military service is not determined by the uniform he wears, and we respectfully ask that the focus remain on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” said a spokesperson for Harry.

Harry was deployed twice to Afghanistan during a 10-year stint with the British Army. Still, the Crown has insisted that military uniforms only be worn by working members of the royal family during funeral ceremonies.

Prince Andrew, who served 22 years in the Royal Navy, also wore a dark suit to the Queen’s funeral. Earlier this year, the royal family acknowledged the sexual assult allegations made against Andrew and officially took away his military titles and royal patronages.
