Prince Harry, 37, arrived at Balmoral Castle in Scotland where his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8. Paparazzi captured Harry looking understandably solemn in the back of a black car. The father of two sat behind a male driver and a male passenger in the vehicle. He was dressed up in a black jacket and matching tie with a white button up shirt.

Harry flew to Scotland to be with The Queen, who passed away on Thursday afternoon at the age of 96. It’s unclear if Harry got to see his grandmother before she died. Harry’s brother Prince William, his father King Charles, and his uncles Prince Edward and Prince Andrew also traveled to Balmoral Castle. It doesn’t seem like Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, 41, went with him to Scotland.

The Royal Family confirmed in a statement on Sept. 8 that the Queen “died peacefully” at Balmoral Castle. The statement also said that Charles, who instantly becomes King following his mother’s death, and Camilla Parker Bowles, who will be named the Queen Consort, “will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

Prior to Queen Elizabeth’s death, Buckingham Palace released a statement, revealing that she was facing some health troubles. “Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” the palace said in a statement. “The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

Harry and Meghan, who quit the royal family in 2020 and now live in California with their son Archie, 3, and daughter Lilibet, 1, mourned Queen Elizabeth with an updated post on their Archewell website. “In Loving Memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” the post said, along with the years of Harry’s Grandmother’s birth and death.

Although Harry’s had a complicated relationship with his family members since resigning from the royal family, he’s always spoken so highly of his grandmother and insisted that she’s supported his decision. He and Meghan even traveled to England in June 2022 to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which marked the 70-year anniversary of her ascension to the throne.
