Harry’s statement

The Duke of Sussex paid tribute to his grandmother’s “eternal grace” and “infectious smile”, saying that even in the depths of his grief he can “smile knowing that you and grandpa are reunited now, both of you together in peace”.

In a text message, in which he also greeted his father, he spoke of his favorite memories of meeting his “beloved wife” and “hugging her beloved great-grandchildren.”
