Meghan ‘row’ made Harry late to Queen’s deathbed at Balmoral, says source

A “row” between Prince Harry and King Charles over Meghan Markle reportedly made the Duke of Sussex miss a flight to Balmoral with other royals on the day the Queen died.

Members of the Royal Family all rushed to the Scottish Highlands after news of the Queen’s ill-health broke on September 8.

It first appeared that Harry and Meghan would be travelling north together, but a statement later revealed that the Queen’s grandson would be travelling without his wife.

However, he was not on the RAF flight from London to Aberdeen with Prince William, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex.

According to The Sun, a source said Harry missed that flight after Charles rang him to say it was “not appropriate” to bring Meghan along.

The source said: “Harry was so busy trying to get Meghan to Balmoral and rowing with his family that he missed the flight.”

Harry’s separate flight arrived in Aberdeen five minutes after the Queen’s death was announced to the world at 6.30pm, and he was eventually driven through the gates of Balmoral 90 minutes later.
