Prince Harry told about Queen's death just before public

Prince Harry learned of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's death just a few minutes before the rest of the world, according to The Telegraph.

According to the source, King Charles III informed his youngest son of his grandmother's death "five minutes before Buckingham Palace released the official announcement."

"Everybody was trying to get where they needed to be. That was the focus. And the King was adamant that the official statement must not be released until all members of the family had been informed. That was a father talking because he cares," a source told the outlet.

According to the story, Harry had difficulty obtaining a flight after learning of his grandmother's death. Harry was only allowed to board a flight an hour after the Palace made the official announcement.

The royal family paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II's "life of service, love, and faith" at an intimate ceremony at Windsor Castle, following a state funeral at London's Westminster Abbey earlier in the day attended by world leaders, members of European royal families, and members of the public.
