A return under high voltage. A few weeks after attending Prince Philip’s funeral, Prince Harry left the United States again. This Friday, June 25, the husband of Meghan Markle arrived in England, where he will soon attend a symbolic day: that of the inauguration of a statue erected in memory of his mother, Lady Di. In accordance with health restrictions still in place in the United Kingdom, the Duke of Sussex will have to respect a five-day isolation.

Will Harry see his father?
“The Duchess has seen this project evolve from conception to completion and undoubtedly wants to be there to support her husband,” a source told the Mirror, who said the two princes should make separate speeches to honor their mother, and salute his heritage. A decision taken a little at the last minute, since at the start, Kate Middleton was not announced at this ceremony. “There was never really any question of the family being included in this project, it is above all a question of a reunion between the two brothers, on July 1st, on the occasion of what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday. “, continued the source. In the United Kingdom, Prince Harry should not have the opportunity to meet with his father, since Prince Charles has already indicated that he does not intend to meet him …
