Prince Harry had a 'very special' reunion with his grandmother, the Queen, after the tragic loss of her husband of over 70 years, Prince Philip.

The US-based Duke of Sussex spent 'precious moments' with Her Majesty following Philip's funeral on April 17, according to an updated epilogue for bombshell royal biography, Finding Freedom.

'Very special' reunion

Penned by royal experts Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, the updated version of the book — full title Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family — will hit stands on August 31, one year after it was first published.

The release will also coincide with the 24th anniversary of Prince Harry's mother Princess Diana's death.

In the new edition, Scobie and Durand claim that Harry's bond with the Queen is still just as strong despite his decision to quit the royal family and relocate to California with his wife, Meghan Markle, and son, Archie.

Harry raced back to the UK to be by his grandmother's side after Prince Philip's passing in April and attended his funeral alongside his brother, Prince William, and their father, Prince Charles.

Afterwards, Harry spent 'precious moments' with the Queen who he hadn't seen in person since departing the Firm in early 2020.

"To see each other after so long apart, the longest he hadn't seen the Queen for, was very special," a source told the authors, per Town and Country.

"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."

The updated edition is said to contain more fresh tidbits from the past year, including claims that the Sussexes reportedly considered naming and shaming the senior royal who they say made racist remarks about their son Archie.

Harry and Meghan made the shock claims during their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, but according to Finding Freedom, they ultimately decided against revealing the identity of the family member who allegedly 'raised concerns' about Archie's skin colour.

The book also claims that Prince William was 'furious' about the Oprah interview however Meghan found it 'cathartic' and 'liberating'.

It also alleges that certain royals were 'quietly pleased' the Duchess of Sussex missed Prince Philip's funeral due to being heavily pregnant with the couple's second child, Lilibet Diana.

Harry is set to pen his own tell-all memoir to be released in 2022, for which he was rumoured to have been paid an advance of $20 million.
