The Queen’s family flocked to her side during her final hours. Meghan Markle was one of those who wasn’t present, though.
Family members flocked to the Queen’s side at Scotland’s Balmoral Castle during her final hours. However, some people were missing, including Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
When word spread that Queen Elizabeth II was “under medical supervision,” Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry, and other members of the royal family were all at Balmoral or en route there.
During their brief European tour, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are staying at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. A spokeswoman confirmed that Prince Harry was “traveling to Scotland.”
However, it’s thought that when she died, he was still on his way to Her Majesty’s home in Scotland.
At around one in the morning on Friday AEDT, a plane carrying several members of the family, including William, landed at Aberdeen Airport.
Additionally, it was said that Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, and Princess Anne were on their way.
The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon, according to a statement released by Buckingham Palace at around 3.30am AEDT. The King and the Queen Consort will spend this evening and tomorrow at Balmoral before flying back to London.
Initial reports claimed Meghan would go with her husband, but the couple’s spokesman later clarified those claims.
According to BBC correspondent Nicholas Witchell, “they have decided that this isn’t really a moment for Meghan to be there with other close family members.”
“There will undoubtedly be rumors about that.
To be completely honest, “She might not be terribly warmly welcomed.”
Kate Middleton, the wife of Prince William, is also skipping the trip to Balmoral because Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis attended school on Thursday for the first time in full.
The Queen chose to hold the ceremony at Balmoral on Tuesday rather than traveling to London to appoint Ms. Truss as Prime Minister. The ceremonial handover of power took place at Balmoral for the first time during her 70-year reign.
Due to ongoing mobility problems, she had been delegating more and more responsibilities to Prince Charles, her heir apparent, and other royal family members in recent months.
