The Archewell Foundation pays tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh
The Archewell website has temporarily been shut down just like other social media handles of the royal family in order to mourn the loss of Prince Philip. They put up a message saying, “In Loving Memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, 1921-2021. Thank you for your service…you will be greatly missed.”
Prince Harry shared a very deep relationship with his grandfather. It is said that he became an important part of his and his brother, Prince William’s life after Princess Diana’s death. In The Diana Chronicles, author Tina Brown talks about the relationship between Prince Harry and his late grandfather Prince Philips. It says, “A member of the balmoral staff noted that Prince Philip, who had effectively lost his own mother at the age of ten when she was committed for three years to an asylum in Switzerland, was brilliantly effective with his grandsons, offering them gruff tenderness and outdoor activities like stalking and hiking to tire them out.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are yet to confirm their attendance at the funeral
Though there isn’t any official confirmation if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would attend the funeral of their grandfather at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple is apparently not on good terms with the royal family after their interview on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’
The couple, who is expecting their second child together stepped back as senior members of the royal family in 2020 and moved to Los Angeles.
