‘We smile knowing that you and grandpa are now reunited’ – Prince Harry issues a statement welcoming the late grandmother Queen Elizabeth II

Prince Harry hailed his late grandmother, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, as a “guiding compass” and praised her “unwavering grace and dignity” as the public should be given the opportunity to pay their respects to the monarch when her coffin rests at St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.

As we celebrate the life and mourn the loss of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, we are all reminded of the compass she was to so many in their commitment to service and duty,” Harry said in a personal statement, the was published on the Archwell website by him and his wife Meghan.

“She was admired and respected around the world. Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life and now her eternal legacy. Let’s reiterate the words she spoke after the death of her husband, Prince Philip, words that can now bring comfort to all of us: “Life, of course, is made up of final goodbyes as well as first encounters.”

“Although this final farewell brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first encounters – from my earliest childhood memories of you, to first meeting you as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment you met my beloved wife and your beloved great-grandchildren hugs.

“I cherish those times I’ve shared with you and the many other special moments in between. You are already greatly missed, not only by us but by the whole world. And as for the first meetings, we now honor my father in his new role as King Charles III.

“Thank you for your dedication to service.

“Thank you for your sound advice.

“Thank you for your contagious smile.

“We smile too, knowing that you and grandpa are now reunited, and both in peace together.”

Amid the bitterness in the House of Windsor, Harry resigned as senior king and moved to the United States two years ago. There was a possible sign of reconciliation on Saturday when Harry and Meghan joined his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Catherine to meet mourners outside Windsor Castle.

Harry’s statement came at the start of another day steeped in historical pageantry and pageantry that has followed the death of a British sovereign.

King Charles III started the day addressing the legislature in Parliament in London before flying to Scotland.

Hundreds of lawmakers crowded the Houses of Parliament’s 1,000-year-old Westminster Hall for a service where Parliament will offer its condolences to the King and he will respond.

Thousands of people lined streets and roadsides on Sunday as the oak coffin was carried to Edinburgh from the late Queen’s beloved summer residence, Balmoral Castle, where she died on Thursday.

The new king will later fly to Edinburgh and walk behind his mother’s coffin as it is slowly transported from Holyroodhouse to St Giles’ Cathedral where the Crown of Scotland will be placed on the coffin before a prayer and reflection service for life and 70-year-olds Reign of the widely esteemed monarch.

The Queen’s coffin will lie in the cathedral for 24 hours, giving the public a chance to come and pay their respects. On Tuesday it will be flown to London, where the coffin will be on display in the Houses of Parliament Palace from Wednesday afternoon until the morning of the funeral on September 19.

Authorities have already issued rules and guidelines for people wishing to pay their respects in London, with a long queue to be expected.

Following his visit to Scotland, Charles embarks on a tour of the other nations that make up the United Kingdom – visiting the Northern Irish capital of Belfast on Tuesday and Wales on Friday.

Harry’s statement ended on a poignant note that alluded to the death of his grandfather Prince Philip last year, saying: “We too smile knowing that you and grandpa are now reunited and both are at peace together.”
