Death of Queen Elizabeth: Prince Harry will now have to bow to Queen Consort Camilla

Prince Harry, who is said to have a tense relationship with his stepmother Camilla Parker Bowles, will have to bow to her now that she has become queen consort, sources said. Page six.

In fact, he probably should have done so on Thursday when the family reconvened in Balmoral following the death of Queen Elizabeth at the age of 96.

One senior palace source said: “The personal impact is most likely due to protocol changes that go into effect almost immediately.

“The family will now have to bow or curtsey to King Charles and the Queen. [Consort] Camilla.

Harry, Duke of Sussex looked distraught as he was driven to the gates of Balmoral, his grandmother’s favorite Scottish estate, hours after her death.

He was not on the earlier flight with his brother, Prince William, his uncles, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, and Edward’s wife, Sophie Wessex.

Instead, he flew to Scotland in a separate private jet and arrived just before 8pm UK time (5am AEST) to reunite with his separated family.

The Queen passed away in the afternoon (local time) before most of her family arrived.

It is reported that only son Charles and his sister Princess Anne were there.

Page six previously reported that Harry ‘not a fan’ of Camillawho had a longtime affair with his father while Charles was still married to Harry and William’s mother, Princess Diana.

However, tradition dictates that Harry will have to bow to the queen consort.

“It would be protocol to bow to the new king and queen” Majesty said managing editor Joe Little Page six.

“Did it happen under these circumstances? [on Thursday or Friday morning] debatable, but every time the royal family meets the new king and queen, it is customary to bow or curtsey to them.”

When asked what William and Harry would now call their father, Little replied: “It will still be Pa. The Queen and Prince Philip were mom and dad to their children; whatever William and Harry called Charles and Camilla yesterday, they will call them that today.”

Harry was the first member of the royal family to leave Balmoral early Friday morning (local time) on a British Airways flight back to London, where he was to be reunited with wife Meghan Markle at their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage.

He was seen leaving around 8:20 am UK time (5:30 am AEST).

Markle did not join her husband in Scotland, although she had originally planned to.

While insiders told us there was nothing nefarious about the decision, longtime BBC royal editor Nicholas Witchell told Live that she may not have been welcome there.

Harry was seen hugging an airport worker as he made his way to the plane on Friday morning (local time).

Sources said Page six that he will remain in the UK for the next 10 days before the Queen’s state funeral, which is widely believed to be scheduled for Monday 19 September.

On September 15, the prince will turn 38 years old.
