Prince Harry reportedly arranged his own travel to rush to Balmoral Castle to be with Queen Elizabeth II before she died, though he didn't make it. A royal expert claimed that not relying on other members of the royal family and seeing the cost of his exit made the controversial royal "very lonely."
Prince Harry may have felt the consequences of stepping down as a senior royal. Aside from not being looked after, he, too, is experiencing some coldness from other royal family members.
In an interview on "TalkTV," via Express, royal expert Douglas Murray claimed the day of Her Majesty's demise must be a "very lonely time" for Meghan Markle's husband as he had to arrange his own travel to be with her even in the last minute.
They would have looked after him if he were still part of the royal fold. However, he seemed to be left with no choice but to go on his own as "he said he would."
Now, the Duke of Sussex is probably seeing the costs of his royal exit, and one of those is the "certain coldness" of other royal family members. "How could you not guard what you say when a member has said so many things about the family and is expected to say more," Murray said.
Murray's claims come after Prince Harry walked behind Queen Elizabeth's coffin with his brother, Prince William. The procession may have brought back a lot of sad memories, remembering the time they walked behind their mother, Princess Diana's coffin when they were just 12 and 15.
The fifth in line to the throne wasn't wearing a military uniform during their late grandmother's procession, unlike the Duke of Cornwall, considering he's no longer a working royal. However, the royal rule has changed, and he's now allowed to wear his military uniform to the monarch's final vigil, per UsWeekly.
Royal reporter Omid Scobie said in a tweet on Thursday, September 15, that Prince Harry would be one of Queen Elizabeth's seven grandchildren to stand near her coffin in silence for 15 minutes at the vigil in Westminster Hall on Saturday, September 17.
The late Queen will then be laid to rest in a state funeral on Monday, September 19. Meanwhile, earlier this week, Buckingham Palace confirmed Prince Andrew would be given an exemption to wear his uniform despite not being a working member of the royal family. The Duke of York had served in the Royal Navy for over 20 years.
