Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will join senior members of the royal family Thursday in rushing to be with Harry’s ailing grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The self-exiled Duke and Duchess of Sussex — in the UK for a rare visit since moving to California — “will be traveling to Scotland,” their spokesperson confirmed.
There they will be reunited with Harry’s estranged family, all of whom are rushing to the Queen’s Balmoral estate after Buckingham Palace confirmed that doctors are “concerned for Her Majesty’s health.”
Harry, 37, and his 41-year-old wife had been staying at their old home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, where they had been snubbed by relatives, despite being less than half a mile from his brother’s home.
The pair had been doing a number of speaking engagements, including Meghan’s first public speech in the UK since quitting the royal family.
They were due to attend the WellChild awards in London Thursday before heading back to California. It was not immediately clear when they were expected to arrive.
Harry’s estranged dad, heir to the throne Prince Charles, 73, was seen landing nearby in a helicopter Thursday, the Telegraph said. The Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, 72, was already with her mother, the outlet said.
The Queen’s other two children — Prince Andrew, 62, and Prince Edward, 58 — were also heading to Balmoral to be by their mother’s side, their representatives told the outlet.
