Prince Harry Turned 38

On Thursday, Prince Harry turned 38, but with Queen Elizabeth II's passing, don't expect the Duke of Sussex to mark the event, if at all officially.

According to a source close to the royal family, the family is in one month of mourning, and Harry won't be doing anything special to commemorate the day other than spending it alone.

One week before Harry's birthday, Her Majesty passed away. Since then, several things have happened and will continue to happen, culminating in Elizabeth's state funeral, which is set to begin at 6 a.m. ET on Monday.

Harry keeps things quiet as he mourns Elizabeth's passing

After a sad day for Harry and the rest of the royal family, when Elizabeth's coffin was brought from Buckingham Palace for a procession through the streets of London before arriving at Westminster Hall, it was announced that Harry would keep things quiet.

The entire royal family arrived for the Service for the Reception of Her Majesty's Coffin, including Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, King Charles III, Prince William, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.

Harry was observed wiping away tears in a poignant gesture as he paid tribute to his late grandmother. Until the funeral, the queen's casket will lay in state at Westminster Abbey.

Harry was not permitted to wear his uniform for that Service for the Reception. Additionally, unlike Charles, William, and other royal family members, he was not permitted to salute the coffin.

Harry has to resign from his honorary military postings after stepping down as a senior member of the royal family in 2020, which is largely to blame. Despite his ten years of service, a representative for Harry stated his response to being denied the right to wear his uniform.

The Announcement is as follows

To the Announcement, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, "will don a mourning suit throughout celebrations honoring his grandmother." We sincerely request that attention be kept to the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II because "his decade of military duty is not dictated by the uniform he wears."

Harry and Meghan have been frequent at numerous ceremonies honoring the late queen, even though they have largely been cut off from the royal family since their departure in 2020.

To begin with, Harry and Meghan went on a walkabout with William and Kate over the weekend in front of Windsor Castle to see flower tributes to Elizabeth.

The four greeted the mourning gathered in front of the royal mansion. The day allowed for a touching interaction between Meghan and a young woman who hugged the Duchess of Sussex.

At Buckingham Palace, where they received the casket after riding in a hearse from the airport and through the streets of London, Harry and Meghan met up with the rest of the royal family.
