The Duke of Edinburgh passed away "peacefully" at Windsor Castle this morning aged 99 after being by the Queen's side for more than 70 years.

He died just weeks after Meghan and Harry gave a shocking interview to Oprah Winfrey alleging racism within the Royal Family.

The couple infamously quit the UK and royal duties in March 2020 to pursue a "private life" on the other side of the Atlantic.  

It's reported Harry has recently been self isolating at his LA mansion just so he could race back if his grandfather's health deteriorated.

Here's what we know…

  • Prince Philip, 99, died at Windsor Castle this morning
  • Queen shared a poignant photo of Philip as she spoke of ‘deep sorrow’ over the loss of her husband of 73 years
  • Prince Philip funeral arrangements have been revealed
  • This Morning taken off air as Queen announces Philip’s death
  • Boris Johnson paid tribute to ‘extraordinary’ Prince Philip
  • The Duke of Edinburgh's early years were remembered after he felt Corfu on a warship
  • The Queen will be in eight days of mourning, it was reported

Now friends of Harry say there is nowhere he would rather be than back with his family ahead of the funeral.

A source close to the family reportedly told DailyMail.com today: "Harry will absolutely do his utmost to get back to the UK and be with his family. 

"He will want nothing more than to be there for his family, and particularly his grandmother, during this awful time.

"Meghan is obviously pregnant so she will need to take advice from her doctors about whether it is safe for her to travel, but I think Harry will definitely go." 

During the now infamous Oprah interview,Meghan said son Archie wasn't made a prince after "concerns and conversations" about "how dark" his skin would be when he was born.

The Duchess of Sussex said there had been conversations with  Harry and a "family" member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be – and "what that would mean or look like".

But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for them.

Prince Harry said he would "never share" the full details of the discussion but that he was asked at the start of his relationship with Meghan, how dark the skin of their children might be.

But Oprah Winfrey later revealed it was NOT the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh who made the comment about Archie's skin.

She told CBS This Morning: "He did not share the identity with me but he wanted to make sure I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother or grandfather that were part of those conversations.

"He did not tell me who was a part of those conversations."
