Prince Harry, in connection with the death of his grandfather, 99-year-old Prince Philip, intends to visit the UK for the first time since March 2020. This is reported by the Daily Mail.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex responded to the death of her husband Elizabeth II by posting on their Archwell website, writing: “Thank you for your service … You will be sorely missed.”
Harry is expected to attend a commemorative event at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle next week.
Most likely, the controversial prince will fly to London on a private jet from his home near Los Angeles. According to the rules, everyone arriving in Britain from the United States must pass a coronavirus test and undergo a ten-day quarantine (in case of a negative result, the quarantine is reduced to five days).
According to the newspaper, the prince may be allowed to use a diplomatic exemption to waive these rules. It is assumed that he will simply take the test before leaving the US and after arriving in the UK.
It is unknown where Harry will stay during his stay in the British Isles, or how long he will stay in the kingdom after his grandfather’s funeral.
The Duke of Sussex’s meeting with his brother William and father Prince Charles will be rather awkward, according to the newspaper, following the shocking allegations of racism by the royal family on Oprah Winfrey’s TV show, which aired last month. In addition, the interview appeared when Harry’s grandfather was in the hospital due to heart problems. In England, the prince himself and his wife Meghan Markle were harshly criticized for this.
Despite the apparent split, the Queen will expect her grandson to band together with the rest of the royal family in tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh. Whether this family reunion turns out to be more than just a gesture of courtesy, time will tell.
It is not yet clear if the pregnant Megan will join Harry. The British media quite reasonably note that if this happens, the warming of relations in the royal family will be less likely.
Earlier, EADaily reported that at the end of February, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Harry, gave his first big interview after moving with his wife Meghan Markle and son Archie to California. The main sensation was the statement of the prince that he did not give up his rights to the English crown
