The royal family announced the sad realization that Queen Elizabeth had died — but they weren't all together when they made the huge announcement. RadarOnline.com has learned that Prince Harry was still en route to Balmoral Castle when his embattled family released the death statement on Twitter.

Interestingly enough, they waited for Harry's older brother, Prince William.

Before revealing the Queen died at 96 years old on Thursday, photos emerged showing William and his scandal-plagued uncle Prince Andrew landing in Scotland and arriving together at Balmoral.

The duo looked tense and concerned as William drove through the gates, with the public unaware of what was waiting for them inside.

It's unclear if William and Andrew made it in time to say goodbye to Queen Elizabeth, but the family held out on releasing the news of her death until they were at the castle. It appears they did not give Harry the same courtesy amid their explosive ongoing family feud.

Photographers were lined up outside of the gates of Balmoral all day, capturing photos of the mourning family. Reuters, who is stationed outside the castle, reported that Harry arrived, but it was after the Queen's death.

The Duke of Sussex was spotted with his hand covering his face while sitting in the backseat of a chauffeured vehicle. He had no family members by his side.

Meghan has continued to cause Queen Elizabeth's family distress by talking negatively about her time as a royal. She recently gave a shocking interview that RadarOnline.com was told caused chaos at the palace, with Charles and William calling "emergency meetings" to figure out how to clean up the duchess' latest mess.

Harry and Meghan were already in London when the palace announced the Queen was under "medical supervision" and doctors are "concerned" for her health.

Despite staying in close proximity to his brother, Harry had "no plans" to see his brother.
