Following the death of the Duke Of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, eyewitnesses have seen Prince Harry arriving at London’s Heathrow Airport.

He has travelled to the UK alone without his wife, Meghan Markle as she is currently heavily pregnant with their second child.

This is his first visit back to the UK since the couple’s controversial Oprah interview.

It’s reported Harry left his £11million California mansion on Saturday night. He was spotted in a black Cadillac Escalade, before boarding a flight from LA.

He was spotted leaving a BA plane in chinos, a jacket and a black face mask at around 1.15 pm GMT yesterday.

Harry was met by security, and it’s thought he was driven to Kensington Palace.

He will reportedly be quarantining at Nottingham Cottage. His former home, Frogmore Cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle, has since been given to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

Under the Government’s Test To Release scheme, Harry can leave quarantine after five days rather than 10 if he provides a negative coronavirus test.

Despite this, he can attend Philip’s funeral regardless of a test. Official guidelines state those coming in from abroad can leave isolation ‘on compassionate grounds’.

Family Rifts

After the bombshell Oprah interview, the Royal Family was left reeling from some of the claims and rumours that followed. Royal experts are hoping that the funeral of their grandfather could be an ‘ideal opportunity’ for William and Harry to reunite and put their differences to one side.

During the interview, Harry claimed he was ‘on different paths’ to William. He said: ‘I love William to bits, he’s my brother. We’ve been through hell together, we have a shared experience, but we were on different paths.’

Friends of Meghan and Harry say Markle wanted to join Harry. However, she was advised against travelling by her physician because she is around six months pregnant. This will be their second child, a daughter, due this summer.

It is claimed that The Royal Family has ordered a truce over the Oprah interview. Instead, they want everyone to focus on honouring and mourning Philip.

The Duke Of Edinburgh died at the age of 99 on Friday, just two months before his 100th birthday.

Tribute

Harry and Meghan paid tribute to Prince Philip on their Archewell organisation website: In loving memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, 1921-2021. Thank you for your service… you will be greatly missed.’

It’s also been reported that Prince Harry is unlikely to wear a military uniform at his grandfather’s funeral after being stripped of his military role by the Queen. . However, he can keep his medals on. 

Gyles Brandreth claims Prince Philip thought Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was ‘madness’ and ‘no good would come of it’.

Funeral

A ceremonial royal funeral will take place on April 17 for Prince Phillip. There will be a national minute’s silence as it begins at 3pm.

Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, just 30 people will attend his funeral. Face masks and social distancing will be required.

The Queen is thought to have said private prayers for her beloved husband at a Sunday mass in Windsor Castle.

Her Majesty was later spotted arriving at the Windsor estate after taking her pet corgis out for a walk.

Anne, the Princess Royal and the Queen’s only daughter release a statement.

In it she said how ‘you are never really ready’ for the loss of a close one. In a statement, she called her father ‘my teacher, my supporter and my critic’. ‘Mostly it is his example of a life well lived and service freely given that I most wanted to emulate,’ she added.

Are you surprised Harry has come back?
