Elizabeth II died on September 8 at the age of 96, after more than 70 years of reign. The Queen’s funeral, which some call “of the century”, takes place this Monday, September 19.
Before the death of the sovereign, a deterioration in her condition had been announced. On Thursday the 8th in the morning, Charles III, then still a prince at that time, went by helicopter to Balmoral, to this castle dear to the queen.
According to the Telegraph, Prince Harry, the Queen’s grandson, was notified five minutes before the official announcement of the Queen’s death, while Liz Truss, the new Prime Minister, was notified an hour before Harry…
Buckingham Palace nevertheless made it clear that all members of the royal family have been notified of the Queen’s death, before the official announcement to the media.
We must believe that Prince William was informed of the state of health of Elizabeth II well before Harry since the husband of Kate Middleton landed at 3:50 p.m. in Aberdeen, the nearest airport, while the darling of Meghan Markle didn’t arrive until 6.46pm. The official announcement of the Queen’s death took place at 6:30 p.m.
