Prince Harry was reportedly granted permission to visit his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth’s, grave on the first anniversary of her death. However, this visit came with one significant condition.
The Duke of Sussex, visibly emotional as he left St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, had initially faced uncertainty about whether he would be allowed to pay his respects at the monarch’s final resting place.
Ultimately, Prince Harry received the green light at the eleventh hour, but it was made abundantly clear that the visit was to remain private, as reported by the Telegraph.
Despite the privacy request, a member of the public captured Harry’s visit on camera, sharing a photo of him leaving the chapel. The image quickly circulated on social media, catching the attention of many, while Harry continued his journey to Dusseldorf for the Invictus Games.
Notably, Prince Harry marked the anniversary without the presence of other family members. King Charles, his father, attended prayers at Crathie Kirk, while Prince William and Kate were in Wales during the same period.
