Prince Harry reveals Meghan Markle broke the news of Queen Elizabeth II’s demise as he boarded a plane to Scotland.
The Duke of Sussex jetted off to meet his ailing grandmother while he received a text message from his wife.
Recalling the call, Harry pens: “As the plane began its descent, my phone lit up. A text from Meg. Call me the moment you get this. I checked the BBC website. Granny was gone. Pa was King. I put on my black tie, walked off the plane into a thick mist, sped in a borrowed car to Balmoral.”
He continues: “Hunched against the cold, I hurried into the foyer. Aunt Anne was there to greet me. I hugged her. Where’s Pa and Willy? And Camilla? Gone to Birkhall, she said. She asked if I wanted to see Granny. Yes…I do”
