Prince Harry has revealed his final words to the Queen after he arrived at Balmoral hours after her death last year.

Harry, who relocated to California with his wife Meghan Markle in 2020, was in Germany promoting the Invictus Games when they received word that Queen Elizabeth II's health was failing.

However, Harry was unable to make it to Scotland in time to see his 96-year-old grandmother alive for the final time.

In his memoir Spare, which has been leaked after it mistakenly went on sale in Spain ahead of its January 10 release, Harry reveals that on arriving at her deathbed he whispered to the Queen that he “hoped she would be happy”.

He also told her he hoped that she would be with his grandfather, Prince Philip, who had died a year earlier at the age of 99, Page Six reports.

Harry writes fondly of his grandmother, whom his daughter Lilibet is named after, that he “admired her for having fulfilled her duties until the very end”.

After leaving his late grandmother's room at Balmoral, Harry says he called his wife to let her know he had arrived safely in Scotland.

Harry and Meghan extended their time in the UK to attend the 10-day period of mourning for the Queen.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex publicly reunited with Prince William and Kate Middleton outside Windsor Castle, sparking hopes that the siblings may be able to repair their relationship.

However, Harry's book casts serious doubts over the chances of that happening with a string of attacks on William.

Harry claims William physically assaulted him after an argument over Meghan and says the Prince and Princess of Wales encouraged him to wear a Nazi uniform to a costume party in 2005.

The new book is available for pre-order here.
