On Prince Harry’s 38th birthday, the Queen said a few expressive and succinct words before wishing him a happy birthday.
While he and his wife, Meghan Markle, prepare to go to the Queen’s funeral on Monday along with the rest of the Royal Family, Prince Harry, who turned 38 a few days ago, will remain in the UK.
The Prince of Wales, who was recently crowned, their brother William, their father, King Charles III, and the prince led the Queen’s funeral procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster on Wednesday.
The Royal Family stood in front of the casket on its purple-covered catafalque for the service in line.
An emotional Prince Harry appeared to lose control as it continued and was seen wiping his eyes. During the occasion, Princess Eugenie of York, Lady Louise Windsor, Prince Edward, and Sophie were all spotted wiping away tears. Lady Louise Windsor is the Countess of Wessex’s daughter.
The Sussexes were one of the few royal families to hold hands after bowing and curtsying to the coffin as members of the Queen’s family left the room after the sombre ceremony. According to body language expert Judi James, Harry and Meghan were required to hold hands.
The vast spaces were intended to create a formal atmosphere, but the women joined their husbands once more throughout the ceremony.
Except for Harry and Meghan, who stepped closer and extended their arms across the room to grab hands in a reciprocal re-linking gesture, the couples appeared to maintain this arrangement as they filed out.
They walked behind William and Kate holding hands, appearing to be having a conversation as they did so, giving and receiving support, solace, and assurance from one another. The recoupling was extremely important to them.
“We are all reminded of the guiding compass she was to so many in her devotion to service and duty,” Prince Harry said after the Queen left. Her Majesty The Queen, who was by her, is remembered in her honour and our sorrow. “.
I will always be grateful for our first encounters, whether as my Commander-in-Chief when you held your priceless great-grandchildren or whenever you met my wonderful wife.
