Prince Harry has returned to the UK to say goodbye to his grandfather. Over the weekend, the royal family shared that the Duke of Sussex would be flying from California to the UK for Prince Philip’s funeral; he is now back in the country, and staying at Frogmore Cottage, where is following COVID-19 protocols.
Town & Country understands that the Duchess of Sussex made efforts to travel alongside her husband, but she did not receive clearance from her doctor as she is currently pregnant with her second child. During the Sussexes’ interview with Oprah earlier this spring, the couple revealed they are expecting a girl, and the baby is due to arrive sometime this summer.
This morning, the Duke of Sussex shared a statement paying tribute to his grandfather in which he said: “My grandfather was a man of service, honour and great humour. He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm—and also because you never knew what he might say next.”
Harry also referenced his soon-to-arrive baby girl, saying: “You will be sorely missed, but always remembered—by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.”
