Further announcements will be made in due course. The Royal Family will join people around the world in mourning his loss.”

“We’ve Zoomed them a few times,” he told talk show host James Corden. “They’ve seen Archie running around.”

However, Harry couldn't help but give his grandfather a hard time when he wants to end the call

“My grandfather instead of pressing ‘leave meeting’ he just goes ‘doof,’” he said while showing how his grandfather closes his laptop. “So, we’re like, ‘OK, bye.’” 

Philip underwent heart surgery in March, and a few weeks later, he was released from the hospital after a 28-day stay. He had been recovering at Windsor Castle ever since.
