“I can’t really speak for the nation, but I think everyone has their own different views. It’s sad that … some have dropped out. But I hope maybe something like this really makes them will bring together. The family must stick together.”

In 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were “taking a step back” as senior members of the royal family and would instead work independently, splitting their time between the United Kingdom and North America.

Catherine, Princess of Wales, Prince William, Prince of Wales, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex arrive at the Long Walk at Windsor Castle to see flowers and tributes to Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said their decision had come “after several months of reflection and internal discussions”.

“Let them do what they want,” one British citizen told Fox News Digital.

Prince Harry broke his silence on the passing of his "nanny" in a tribute to how "globally admired and respected" Her Majesty was dedicated with "indefatigable grace and dignity".

“If he doesn’t want to be a part of the royal family, that’s fine. I think it’s a shame because it’s probably like all families … you have a disagreement. I guess [the Queen] If she could, she should have brought her more together.”

Prince Harry broke his silence on the passing of his “grandmother” in a tribute written on Monday dedicated to “global admiration and respect” Her Majesty was with “indefatigable grace and dignity”.

Posted on the Archwell Foundation’s website, the Duke of Sussex wrote: “Grandma, while this final parting leaves us deeply saddened, I am forever grateful for all my first meetings – from childhood memories with you, to the first meeting with you. For the first time you, as my Commander-in-Chief, met my dear wife and hugged your dear great-grandson.”
