A representative from the US Embassy dialed Harry’s number just before 3 a.m. California time to tell him the news, but the call went unanswered, according to the outlet.

Finally, the embassy rep contacted the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department —

The sheriff’s department complied and reportedly sent an officer to the royal couple’s $14.7 million estate to tell Harry to call the embassy immediately.

The Sussexes’ rep did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

Harry ultimately traveled back home to the UK for his granddad’s funeral, but he recently revealed that he was “afraid” to make the trip, believing it would trigger past traumas.
