Prince Harry is still en route to Balmoral Castle, CNN royal correspondent Max Foster reports, and the family is likely waiting for him to arrive before any announcements on Queen Elizabeth II are made.
Prince Harry is traveling to Balmoral from London, according to UK’s PA Media news agency.
"We know Prince William's arrived as well. I think we are only waiting on Prince Harry. We're relying on local photographers here because you know this has only just happened and they've been based up there so we're waiting to see images come through," Foster said on CNN. "I think once Prince Harry is in there, whilst he's not a working role but he's still a senior member, still very high up in the line of succession. I think they want him there before any announcements were made. It would seem dismissive I think if the announcements were made before they were all inside behind those gates at Balmoral Castle. And then you need a bit of time for them to regroup a well."
Foster also described the family's rushed arrival to Balmoral Castle in Scotland earlier Thursday to be with Queen Elizabeth II as news of her declining health broke.
"They normally travel separately. They are all in one car. Their faces are stark. Prince Andrew in the front very close to the Queen and Prince Edward also increasingly close to the Queen in recent years because he has been taking on more and more responsibilities and you know we just have to look at those faces and try to read what we can into them and they are all in the same car and they didn't have to be. It feels to me like they... rushed to get there as quickly as possible and this was the most efficient way," Foster said in reference to a photo of members of the Royal family arriving at the castle.
