The Queen’s grandchildren, Prince William and Prince Harry, reportedly were unable to say goodbye to their grandmother.

Only their eldest children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne, reached the regent’s estate and thus on her deathbed, the newspaper reports, citing unnamed sources. The news of the death reached Harry and William as they were already on their way to their grandmother.

William was on a private jet from Berkshire to Aberdeen with Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie. Duchess Kate stayed in London to care for their three children. Prince Harry, who is visiting his home country with his wife Meghan and was due to attend a charity event in London that evening, had also tried to reach Balmoral on time. However, it did not arrive until around 9 p.m., almost an hour and a half after the public was informed of the Queen’s death.
