William and Harry to reunite for Prince Philip’s funeral

Prince Harry has reportedly arrived in the UK and is in quarantine ahead of Prince Philip’s funeral on Saturday.

He is said to have arrived at Heathrow on a British Airways flight from Los Angeles at 1.15pm on Sunday.

The Sun says Prince Harry was met by police and security on the tarmac and driven away in a Range Rover. He is thought to have been taken to Kensington Palace, the newspaper added.

Buckingham Palace confirmed on Saturday that he would be making the journey, but Meghan has been advised not to travel because she is heavily pregnant.

The Duke of Sussex will not have time to complete 10 days’ quarantine but the rules allow people to temporarily leave their place of isolation on “compassionate grounds”, which includes a funeral.

Funeral preparations are under way, and the ceremonial royal funeral for the Duke of Edinburgh will be held at St George’s Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

It will start at 3pm on Saturday, 17 April and there will be a minute’s silence across the country.

The funeral will also be televised as mourners cannot gather due to coronavirus restrictions.

Prince Philip played a major role in the lives of many of his grandchildren, not least William and Harry.

Prince William and Prince Harry will reunite for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, the first meet since Oprah interview.

In the interview, Harry said of his older brother “The relationship is ‘space’ at the moment. And time heals all things, hopefully.”

Shared grief over the death of the Duke of Edinburgh is an “ideal opportunity” to mend any rifts within the Royal Family, ex-PM Sir John Major has told the BBC.

Members of the public have continued laying flowers outside the castle, although the new government guidance asks the public to refrain from doing so and give to charity instead.

A spokesman for Windsor Great Park said on Saturday that tributes would be removed “respectfully” and displayed within the castle grounds.

Royal household staff were photographed on Sunday placing bouquets on the ground outside St George’s Chapel.
