Prince Harry isn’t going to put his phone on quiet any time soon.
According to TMZ, the Duke of Sussex, 36, slept through the phone call informing him that his grandfather, Prince Philip, had died in April.
According to the outlet, a person from the US Embassy called Harry’s phone shortly before 3 a.m. California time to inform him of the news, but the call went unanswered.
Finally, the embassy representative phoned the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department, requesting that an officer contact Harry, Meghan Markle, and their son, Archie, who live in the elite Montecito community.
According to reports, the sheriff’s department cooperated and dispatched an officer to the royal couple’s $14.7 million residence to advise Harry to contact the embassy right away.
Philip died on April 9 at the age of 99 at Windsor Castle in England, where the royal family attempted to contact Harry around 11 a.m.
The Sussexes’ publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Page Six.
Harry eventually returned to the UK for his grandfather’s burial, but he recently confessed that he was “afraid” to go because he thought it might revive old memories.
While advertising his new mental health program, “The Me You Can’t See,” on Apple TV+, he told the Associated Press, “I was frightened about it, I was terrified about it.”
“Going through the motions and being able to lean on the toolbox and the learnings that I’ve gained over the years made it a lot easier, but my heart still pounded.”
After quitting their royal duties, Harry and Meghan, 39, relocated their growing family to the United States last year.
