The relationship between Prince Harry and the rest of the Royal Family has significantly deteriorated ever since he wed Meghan Markle in 2018.
The Prince has repeatedly insisted that absolutely nothing has changed regarding his relationship with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth!
Due to their hectic preparations for the Queen’s funeral on Monday, the family has little time to enjoy the Duke’s 38th birthday.
The late Queen’s birthday message was wishing The Duke of Sussex a happy birthday today. On his last birthday, the Royal Family’s official account shared four images of the Duke from various stages of his life on Twitter.
Because they participated in yesterday’s procession carrying the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster, the family is enduring a trying time.
King Charles III, a descendant of the Queen, led the procession, closely followed by his sons, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex.
Facing the coffin and its purple-covered catafalque, the family arranged themselves in a predetermined pattern.
While saying goodbye to his beloved grandma, Prince Harry was seen wiping tears from his eyes.
Sophie, the daughter of the Countess of Wessex, and Lady Louise Windsor were two members of the Royal Family who were seen crying and wiping their eyes.
The Sussexes held hands fairly tightly when it was their turn to stoop and bow before the Queen’s coffin.
Judi James, a body language expert, said this was a good sign. The woman continued, “Within the service, the women joined their husbands, but again, the enormous spatial gaps appeared chosen to give the impression of formality.
The couples seemed to maintain this arrangement as they filed out, she continued, except for Harry and Meghan, who leaned closer and extended their arms across the space to hold hands in a reciprocal re-linking gesture.
She added to her initial statement by saying that “the re-coupling appeared to be desperately important to them,” and that “they used their clutched hands as a method of offering support, comfort, and reassurance to each other while walking behind Prince William and Kate and presumably on the verge of a moment when chat might be near. “.
To deal with this loss, Harry is having difficulty. The Duke of Sussex paid a moving tribute to his late grandmother with some sincere remarks.
He continued, “In remembering my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen—and in mourning her loss—we are all reminded of the compass she was to so many in her devotion to service and duty.
“Granny, while this final separation makes us very sad, I am forever grateful for all our first encounters—from my earliest childhood memories with you to first meeting you as my Commander-in-Chief, to first meeting my darling wife, to first hugging your beloved great-grandchildren.
This loss may resolve recent ups and downs in the Royal Family.
In honour of Prince Harry’s last birthday, send your friends and family this heartfelt greeting from the Queen.
