Prince Harry has revealed his last moment with Queen Elizabeth II after she had died, saying he was “really happy for her because she’d finished life”.
The Duke of Sussex, 38, described how he spent time with Her Late Majesty in her bedroom at Balmoral after her death on September 8.
Speaking to Anderson Cooper for CBS’ 60 Minutes in the US, Harry said: “I walked into the hall, and my aunt [Princess Anne] was there to greet me.
“And she asked me if I wanted to see her. I thought about it for about five seconds, thinking, ‘Is this a good idea?’
“And I was, like, ‘You know what? You can – you can do this. You – you need to say goodbye’.”
“So, I went upstairs, took my jacket off and walked in and just spent some time with her alone.”
He added: “She was in her bedroom.
“I was really happy for her because she’d finished life.
“She’d completed life, and her husband was waiting for her.
“And the two of them are buried together.”
Queen Elizabeth II was 96 when she died and is the UK’s longest-reigning monarch in history, having ascended to the throne in June 1953.
The Duke of Sussex was in the UK at the time as part of a set of European engagements with his wife, Meghan Markle.
