Prince Harry and Meghan Markle subtly honored Queen Elizabeth II who died at age 96 on Thursday.
Harry, 37, and Markle, 41, updated their Archewell Foundation website to show a black screen with a simple message written in white letters.
“In loving memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” the page read, adding the dates of her life, “1926-2022.”
The British Monarchy also changed its website, which normally shares updates on the royal family, to a black interface while “appropriate changes are made.”
“Queen Elizabeth II 1926 – 2022,” the page read, adding a photo of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953.
The website also shared the statement the royal family had released announcing her passing.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” it read. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
King Charles III — who automatically became king of the UK and Commonwealth upon his mother’s death — also issued a statement expressing the “greatest sadness.”
“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world,” the statement read in part.
Charles and his wife, now Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles, and Prince William all made their way to the royal estate late Thursday morning.
Harry appeared saddened when he arrived separately from the others and hours after the Queen’s passing. He made his way to the castle on his own as Markle was unable to join him as she was in Germany promoting the Invictus Games.
However, both the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to fly to Britain for a funeral alongside the rest of the royal family and leaders from across the globe.
Harry and Markle infamously stepped down from their royal duties in early 2020 before moving to California.
The Queen’s grandsson has occasionally returned to his homeland – including to attend his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral, the unveiling of his mother Princess Diana’s statue, and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee which Meghan also attended in June.
