Prince Harry reportedly failed to make it to Queen Elizabeth’s bedside at the time of her sudden passing because he was midflight when she took her final breath, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Although the 37-year-old Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan Markle, were in London on Thursday to attend a previously scheduled charity event, Prince Harry reportedly rushed to Balmoral, Scotland after being informed his grandmother could pass away at any moment.

Unfortunately, the renegade prince was still en route to Balmoral when the 96-year-old monarch passed away. He reportedly arrived to Elizabeth’s bedside nearly an hour-and-a-half after her death.

Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Edward’s wife Sophie and Prince William also reportedly failed to make it to Balmoral Castle in time to be with the Queen at the time of her death.

The four reportedly flew from Berkshire, England to Aberdeen, Scotland to see the Queen, but did not reach the estate in time.

Of all the senior royals who rushed to be with Queen Elizabeth in her final moments, only the late Queen’s oldest children – the newly dubbed King Charles III and Princess Anne – were there to be with the monarch when she passed away.

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” Buckingham Palace’s official statement read. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

King Charles III, who was appointed King at the moment of his mother’s passing, also released a statement on Thursday further confirming the death of the late Queen Elizabeth.
