Though Queen Elizabeth II took her last breath before Prince Harry arrived at her bedside, the Duke of Sussex still took a moment to say goodbye to his beloved grandmother once he finally made it to her home.

The father-of-two recalled the emotional moment from September 8, 2022, in his memoir, Spare, revealing that after she passed at age 96, he whispered to her that he "hoped she would be happy."

The newly minted writer also told the beloved matriarch she would be reunited with her husband, Prince Philip, who passed in April 2021 at age 99.

As OK! reported, Harry tried to make it to the queen's Scotland home before she passed, but he didn't land in the country until about three hours later. However, according to Tom Bower's book, Prince William was partially responsible for his younger brother's tardiness.

In the new version of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors, the author claimed that when Harry heard about the queen's ailing health, he and Meghan Markle, who were already in the U.K., wanted to come see her, but William refused to let the former actress join the family.

"At Meghan’s suggestion, Harry insisted that he would be accompanied by his wife – and that plan was broadcast to journalists at 1:53 p.m.," Bower explained. "Meghan’s expectation was astonishing. For four years she had rejected the Queen’s invitations to visit Balmoral but, in her last hours of life, Meghan eagerly sought to make the journey. Firmly, Harry was told that Meghan was not welcome."

"Unwilling to waste more time, William ordered the RAF jet to take off at 2:39 p.m. Harry was left to hire his own plane and make the journey alone," the author continued. "He landed in Scotland at 6:46 p.m., 14 minutes after the Queen’s death had been announced to the public. She had died at 3:10 p.m."

Meghan then came to join her husband for the mourning period and funeral, where the brothers kept their distance.
