Prince Harry & Queen Elizabeth II’s
Prince Harry Honors Queen Elizabeth II’s Memory at Windsor Castle on the First Anniversary of Her Passing
As the United Kingdom came together to remember the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Friday, members of the British Royal Family paid heartfelt tributes on this solemn occasion.
On that day, Prince Harry paid his respects to his beloved grandmother by visiting her final resting place. He made a private journey to St. George’s Chapel within the picturesque Windsor Castle. Meanwhile, his wife, Meghan Markle, remained in the United States.
Queen Elizabeth passed away at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on September 8, 2022. Following a dignified state funeral and committal service, she found her eternal repose at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, nestled within the serene grounds of Windsor Castle, on September 19.
The day before, on Thursday, the Duke of Sussex attended the annual WellChild Awards, showing his unwavering support for the charity dedicated to seriously ill children. During the ceremony, Harry warmly reminisced about Queen Elizabeth, saying, “As you may know, I was unable to attend the awards last year due to my grandmother’s passing.
But, as you might also know, she would have been the first to insist that I join you all instead of being with her. That’s precisely why, one year later, I’m certain she’s looking down on all of us tonight, delighted that we are gathered here to continue shining a light on such an incredible community.”
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth’s son and the current monarch, King Charles III, was at Balmoral, where he paid his respects at the Crathie Kirk church, keeping the memory of his mother alive.
A statement from King Charles read, “On this first anniversary of Her late Majesty’s passing and my Ascension, we fondly remember her long and devoted life of service and the profound impact she had on so many of us.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton also honored Queen Elizabeth on Friday, participating in a meaningful service at the ancient St. David’s Cathedral in Wales, further uniting the nation in their remembrance of a beloved monarch.
