Prince Harry publicly addressed the death of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II for the first time in a personal statement on Monday praising her as the King and mother of the family.
“In celebrating my grandmother’s life, Her Majesty – and in mourning her loss – we all remember the guiding compass she was for many in her commitment to service and duty. She was universally admired and respected. Her unwavering dignity and grace remained true throughout her life and now her eternal legacy.”
Remember the words the queen said Her last Christmas speech On December 25, 2021, on the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh: “Life, of course, consists of one last parting as well as first encounters.”
“Grandma, while this last parting brings us great grief, I am forever grateful for all our first meetings—from my first childhood memories with you, to first meeting you as Commander in Chief, to the first moment you met my beloved wife and embraced your beloved great-grandchildren. I cherish those times that I shared it with you, and many other special moments in between. We miss you so badly, not only from our side, but from all over the world.”
Referring to the Queen’s speech again, he said: “And in connection with the first meetings, we now honor my father in his new role as King Charles III.
“Thank you for your commitment to service. Thank you for your sound advice. Thank you for your infectious smile. We, too, are smiling knowing that you and your grandfather are now reunited, both together in peace.”
