As Britain is mourning the death of its beloved Monarch, Queen Elizabeth II after a remarkable 70 years on the throne, it has been revealed that his eldest children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne were at her bedside before she died on Thursday, September 8.
Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, his wife Sophie, and Prince William all flew in from Berkshire via private jet to Aberdeen yesterday as they dashed to Balmoral to see her. But it is understood that they did not reach the estate before she passed.
According to Mail Online, Prince Harry also attempted to reach Balmoral in time. But he arrived at 8pm, nearly an hour-and-a-half after the public were informed of the Queen’s death.
The country’s longest-reigning royal died yesterday September 8th at the age of 96 at Balmoral in Scotland.
Her death sparked a huge outpouring of emotions with thousands of heartbroken mourners gathering outside the gates of Buckingham Palace and other royal buildings yesterday evening.
The Queen’s son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, is now King Charles III, while Prince William has inherited his father’s title and is now, along with his wife, styled The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge. William is also now the ‘heir apparent’ to the British throne.
