Prince Harry has released a statement paying tribute to his grandmother the Queen.

He said: “As we celebrate the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen – and mourn her loss – we all remember the compass she has been to so many in her commitment to service and to have to.”

Recalling the words he had spoken to her after his grandfather’s death, he said: “Life, of course, consists of final partings as well as first encounters.”

He added: “Grandma, while this latest parting brings us great sadness, I am eternally grateful for all of our first encounters – from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as Commander in Chief, the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren.”

Prince Harry said he “treasured” his time with the Queen and said he honored his father’s new role as king.

He said: “Thank you for your commitment to service. Thank you for your sound advice. Thank you for your contagious smile.

“We, too, smile knowing that you and Grandpa are reunited now, and both together in peace.”
