The latest MESSAGE left by Queen Elizabeth II for her grandson Harry’s birthday

Wishing The Duke of Sussex a happy birthday today, the Queen’s farewell words to Prince Harry on his 38th birthday, were brief and touching.

According to The Mirror, Prince Harry celebrated his 38th birthday yesterday and will continue to live in the UK while he and his wife Meghan Markle prepare to attend the Queen’s funeral with the rest of the Royal Family on Monday.

The prince escorted the Queen’s funeral procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster on Wednesday together with their father King Charles III, their brother William, and the newly crowned Prince of Wales.

Members of the Royal Family stood in a line in front of the casket on its purple-covered catafalque throughout the service.

As it went on, a teary-eyed Prince Harry looked to lose control of himself and was spotted wiping his eyes. During the service, Princess Eugenie of York, Lady Louise Windsor, Prince Edward, and Sophie all appeared to be wiping away tears. Lady Louise Windsor is the daughter of the Countess of Wessex.

The Sussexes were one of the few royal couples who hold hands tightly after both had bowed and curtsied to the coffin after the sad ritual was over and members of the Queen’s family left the hall. Judi James, a body language expert, claimed that Harry and Meghan’s holding hands signal was necessary.

Inside the service, the wives joined their husbands, but once more, the wide spaces were intentional to lend an air of formality.

With the exception of Harry and Meghan, who drew nearer and stretched their arms across the distance to grasp hands in a reciprocal re-linking gesture, the couples appeared to maintain this arrangement as they filed out.

Walking behind William and Kate and apparently on the verge of a conversation, they used their linked hands to offer support, comfort, and reassurance to one another. The re-coupling appeared to be desperately important to them.

“In commemorating the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, and in grieving her loss, we are all reminded of the guiding compass she was to so many in her commitment to service and duty,” Prince Harry said following the Queen’s passing.

When I go back to my first childhood memories with you, when I first met you as my Commander-in-Chief, when you first held your cherished great-grandchildren, and whenever you met my wonderful wife, I will always be grateful for all of our first encounters.
