Despite the turmoil of the last 18 months, Prince Harry has always maintained a close and respectful relationship with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. And according to the soon-to-be-released new epilogue of Finding Freedom, the two shared a "very special" reunion back in April, having been separated for more than a year amidst the pandemic.

Prince Harry returned to the UK for Prince Philip's funeral, reuniting with the Queen, his brother Prince William and the rest of the royal family. Meghan Markle, who was heavily pregnant with the couple's daughter Lilibet, was advised not to travel with him. According to a source quoted in Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand's new epilogue, Harry spent most of his time after the funeral with Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, who are close friends of he and Meghan's. But the funeral also provided an opportunity for Harry to "spend precious moments" with the Queen.

"To see each other after so long apart, the longest he hadn’t seen the Queen for, was very special,” a source told Scobie and Durand. "Despite everything that has happened, he has the utmost love and respect for her. Her life of duty and service is one of the many ways in which she has inspired him to also serve.”

This is just one of many tidbits from the new epilogue to Finding Freedom, which will also touch on Harry and Meghan's March interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan's "emotional healing journey" after losing a child last summer, and the couple's "heartbreak" over the death of Prince Philip.

The new edition of Finding Freedom goes on sale August 31st.
