Prince Harry has reportedly arrived back in the UK ahead of his grandfather’s funeral.
The Duke of Sussex made the 5,400-mile journey from Los Angeles to Heathrow and landed at 1.15pm yesterday, The Sun reports.
His wife, Meghan Markle, had been advised by her doctor not to travel for the funeral, which will be televised and take place entirely in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
It is Harry’s first trip back to the UK since he and Meghan moved to California, and it comes only a month since their controversial interview with Oprah.
Will Harry go into quarantine?
Under current rules, mourners coming from outside England are required to self-isolate from arrival and for the first full 10 days after they arrive.
But Harry would be entitled to leave his place of self-isolation on compassionate grounds to attend the funeral.
He could also be released from quarantine if he gets a negative private test on day five under the Test to Release scheme.
Given his status as a member of the royal family travelling to support the Queen, Harry might be considered exempt from travel restrictions.
Tribute to Prince Philip
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh on their Archewell website last week.
The website has switched to a memorial page with a dark brown background.
It reads simply: “In loving memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021
“Thank you for your service…You will be greatly missed.”
