Prince Harry Found Out About Queen Elizabeth II's Death From BBC's Website
According to the BBC, Harry first found out about his grandmother's death from the outlet's website. On the day that she died, 8 Sept., Harry made arrangements to get to Balmoral — the Scottish estate where the Queen spent the summer — by plane but news of her death reached him by phone before he could exit it. In his memoir, he wrote, "When the plane started to descend I saw that my phone lit up. It was a message from Meg: 'Call me when you get this' . . . I looked at the BBC website. My grandmother had died. My father was King."
