LONDON, UK: In the latest revelation on the Queen’s death, King Charles wasn’t aware of his mother’s worsening health before he was informed in a call. The then Prince of Wales received an anxious call when he and his wife were in Dumfries House. He received the call at 12:30 pm on September 8, frantically informing King Charles that the Queen was dying and after that ‘everything was silent.’ 
 
Queen Consort Camilla was scheduled for an interview with former US President George Bush’s daughter, and that was the moment when an aide rushed in from outside. "Camilla was actually about to record an interview with Jenna Bush Hager, who said she heard footsteps running in the hallway,” according to Newsweek’s chief royal correspondent Jack Royston.

He added, “Charles took a call, everything was silent, and they were asked to be silent. Then the next thing she knew, Charles and Camilla were in a helicopter. And that was at 12.30 [on Thursday 8th September], so that was around exactly the same time that we were told.” "So they didn’t wait, they didn’t give Charles an hour or two hours [before telling the public],” Royston revealed.

The chief royal correspondent also talked at length about other subjects about the feud between the royal brothers, and the King’s first address to the nation. On the new monarch, he said, “I see in Charles a bit of George V - the sort of avuncular, fatherly figure of the nation. And it’s benefited him, his older years.”
 
Historian Tessa Dunlop on the episode of True Royalty TV’s 'The Royal Beat' reflected on the new Prince of Wales’ current relationship with his brother Harry, “[William and Kate] realize their positions are a privilege, that they are honored, they are lucky … and that has bred in William a magnanimity towards his brother.
 
“I think it was generous and it was right for him to stretch out an invitation to Harry [to join him and Kate on the Windsor walkabout."
