But no matter what’s going on with the family, Harry paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth in his own way by giving a heartfelt speech. As Harry presented the Inspirational Child Award at the event, he took a moment to pay tribute to his grandmother. He said:
“As you know, I was unable to attend the awards ceremony last year as my grandmother passed away. As you probably also know, she would have been the first to insist that I come to you anyway instead of going to her. And that’s exactly why, exactly one year later, I know she’s looking down on all of us tonight, happy that we’re together, and continuing to shine a spotlight on such an incredible community.”
Wow. Harry and Meghan were due to attend the awards ceremony last year. However, plans changed when they received news of Her Majesty’s deteriorating health. He rushed to Balmoral to be at her side, but unfortunately he didn’t make it in time. So hard…
