The Queen’s grandchildren, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex, have returned from Balmoral to Windsor to be with their families, where they are expected to stay until the Queen’s state funeral.

Prince Harry left Balmoral Castle on Friday morning after the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. Kensington Palace confirmed that Prince William left after 1pm.

Harry was seen leaving at around 8:15 am on Friday and is said to have returned to London and traveled to his British residence, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

He was unable to reach Balmoral until 8:30 pm Thursday night, two hours after the announcement of his grandmother’s death, after traveling separately from his brother and other relatives.

Both Harry and his wife, Meghan, are expected to stay in the UK to attend the Queen’s state funeral, which is expected to take place on 19 September.

Harry was nearing the end of a European tour with Meghan and canceled a London appearance on Thursday at the WellChild Awards, which honors the brave actions of seriously ill children, to join his family in Aberdeenshire.

He was seen leaving Balmoral, passing flowers that had been placed in homage to the late monarch, and later that morning boarding a British Airways flight at Aberdeen International Airport, which departed at 10:20 am.

William is also thought to have been unable to see his grandmother before she died, although Buckingham Palace has not confirmed the time of death.

Harry and Meghan’s involvement in the funeral has sparked much speculation among commentators that it may be the first time they reunite with the royal family in several tumultuous years. Some reports have centered on Harry being the last royal to arrive at Balmoral and the first to leave.

Neither Meghan nor Prince William’s wife Kate joined the other royal family members at Balmoral, although both are expected to attend the funeral.

On social media there have been indications that the greater criticisms of Meghan’s absence than that of Kate, who remained in Windsor to look after her and William’s children, may be racist.

Harry and Meghan Archwell’s website went black shortly after the announcement of the Queen’s death and pays homage to her, stating, “In loving memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 1926-2022”.

It is unknown when the couple will return to their home in California, where their children remain.

The queen’s death means that the son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, is now a prince as he is the grandson, rather than the great-grandson, of a monarch. Her younger sister, Lilibet “Lili” Mountbatten-Windsor, also has a right to be a princess.

Meghan had previously suggested that the title was being denied to Archie due to his race.

After the accession council took place Saturday at 10am – traditionally held within 24 hours of a monarch’s death, but was delayed due to the queen’s death being announced late Thursday – William and Kate will be known as the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge, assuming the title of King Charles’ “Cornwall”.

The move also means that William inherits the Duchy of Cornwall, a 60,700 hectare (150,000 acre) estate spread across 20 counties, with a declared annual income of around £ 20 million.

A declaration from the Duchy of Cornwall confirmed the transfer of the estate from Charles to William: “The passage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the succession of Her Majesty King Charles III marks the passage of the title of the Duke of Cornwall to Her Royal Highness the Duke of Cornwall Cambridge. As such, the estate is in good hands. It is fitting at this moment to recognize the enormous changes made by our 24th Duke of Cornwall in 70 years. Majesty of him passes the much improved property.
