According to The Telegraph and the Mirror, Harry had expressed a desire to pay his respects at his grandmother’s resting place on the first anniversary of her passing, coinciding with his visit to the UK. Initially, he held little hope of obtaining permission to visit the chapel. However, Buckingham Palace granted him last-minute approval for a private visit.
On the significant date, Harry observed his own tribute, far removed from his estranged father, King Charles, and brother, Prince William. Charles attended prayers at Crathie Kirk, coinciding with his Accession Day, while William and his wife, Kate, attended a special service at St David’s Cathedral in Wales.
Despite their close relationship in their earlier years, tensions between William and Harry have strained their bond. The discord reportedly began before Harry’s marriage to Meghan Markle, the former Suits star, with Harry accusing William of displaying snobbish behavior toward his bride.
The situation escalated after Harry made public accusations against his brother in both his memoir, “Spare,” and his Netflix documentary. In his autobiography, released shortly after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Harry alleged that William had physically assaulted him and pushed him into a confrontation over Meghan.
Furthermore, in their Netflix series, two months after the Queen’s demise, Harry and Meghan asserted that Kensington Palace had issued a statement to protect William, denying allegations that he had driven Harry out of the royal family through bullying.
