Prince Harry has arrived at Balmoral following the death of the Queen aged 96.

Buckingham Palace on Thursday confirmed that Her Majesty had died peacefully at Balmoral.

Harry was spotted being driven in a convoy of cars heading through the castle gates.

Before the news of her death, the Duke of Cambridge was seen driving his two uncles into Balmoral after landing on an RAF plane in Aberdeen.

William was behind the wheel of the Range Rover which arrived as part of a cavalcade of cars at the Queen’s Scottish Highlands home just after 5pm.

The plane carrying the royals arrived at Aberdeen Airport just before 4pm.

Royal Air Force flight KRF23R took off from RAF Northolt in South Ruislip, west London, at 2.39pm, according to flight tracking website Flightradar24.com.

The Dassault Falcon landed at the Scottish airport at 3.50pm.

The Duke of York was in the passenger seat, while the Earl and Countess of Wessex were sitting in the back.

Following the news of her death, Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell website homepage became a blacked-out landing page with the words: “In loving memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 1926-2022.”

The Duchess of Sussex did not travel to Balmoral with the Duke of Sussex, with Harry making the trip by himself, sources have said

It is understood Meghan remained in London, but will not attend the WellChild awards.

The Duchess could potentially join Harry in Scotland at a later date, the source said, following the change of plan.
