Prince Harry’s “optimist” response to the Queen’s death has been revealed by Meghan Markle and it reflects the sentiments of his fellow royals too.
- The Duke of Sussex reportedly had a very heartfelt response following the loss of his grandmother the Queen.
- Discussing the difficult recent times, Meghan Markle has shared what her husband said to her - and it mirrors what two of his cousins have said too.
- This royal news comes as it was revealed that Princess Diana used Princess Margaret’s 'secret path' to hide lovers at Kensington Palace.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle both paid their respects to the late Queen after she passed away at Balmoral, undertaking a Windsor walkabout and saying a final farewell at her funeral and committal service. Since then they have returned to their Santa Barbara home and reunited with their children Archie and Lilibet. Though Her Majesty’s loss is still felt deeply by her nearest and dearest. Getting candid with Variety during her new cover interview, Meghan Markle opened up on the death of Queen Elizabeth and recalled fond memories of her grandmother-in-law.
She discussed being able to be there to support her husband and it was then that Prince Harry’s “optimist” response to losing his beloved “Granny” was revealed.
Asked about how things have been since losing the Queen, Meghan responded, “What’s so beautiful is to look at the legacy that his grandmother was able to leave on so many fronts. Certainly, in terms of female leadership, she is the most shining example of what that looks like. I feel deep gratitude to have been able to spend time with her and get to know her.”
“It’s been a complicated time,” she continued. “[B]ut my husband, ever the optimist, said, “Now she’s reunited with her husband.”
This heart-warming remark from the Duke of Sussex echoes that made in the statement shared on his and the Duchess’ Archewell site in memory of the Queen.
“Let us echo the words she spoke after the passing of her husband, Prince Philip, words which can bring comfort to all of us now: 'Life, of course, consists of final partings as well as first meetings.'”, Prince Harry declared.
Similar sentiments were echoed by his cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice in their own personal statements about their beloved grandmother. They heartfeltly wrote, “We're so happy you're back with Grandpa. Goodbye dear Grannie, it has been the honour of our lives to have been your granddaughters and we're so very proud of you.”
In his first address to the nation as monarch, King Charles paid tribute to the Queen and also spoke about her undertaking her “last great journey” to join his “dear Papa”.
Meanwhile, the Queen had previously expressed during a poignant message to the families of those who were tragically lost in the September 11 attacks that, “grief is the price we pay for love”. Her love for her late husband the Duke of Edinburgh came through in the Queen’s Christmas 2021 message - sadly the last of her 70 year reign.
“His sense of service, intellectual curiosity and capacity to squeeze fun out of any situation – were all irrepressible. That mischievous, enquiring twinkle was as bright at the end as when I first set eyes on him,” she declared.
Prince Harry’s “optimist” response to the loss of his grandmother, focusing on how she and Prince Philip are now reunited, is incredibly wonderfully heart-warming.
