Harry met with Queen and Will on UK trip

 

 

Prince Harry met the Queen privately "at least twice" and chatted to Charles and William on his "family focused" UK trip, a friend has revealed.

The royal insider claimed the Duke of Sussex met with the monarch a number of times, after he flew in to mourn his grandfather.

The source told Bazaar.com: "The love and respect he has for his grandmother will always be unwavering.

"This trip was to honour the life of his grandfather and support his grandmother and relatives.

"It was very much a family-focused period of time. Saturday broke the ice for future conversations but outstanding issues have not been addressed at any great length.

"The family simply put their issues to one side to focus on what mattered."

Harry stayed at Frogmore Cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle while he was in the country. He saw a number of family members, the source said, including Princess Eugenie and her newborn son.

Prince Harry also had his first face-to-face conversations with his father and brother since officially stepping down as senior royals last year.

The Queen was celebrating her 95th birthday on Wednesday, after Harry touched down back in the US on Tuesday.

She issued a personal message thanking the nation for support and kindness following Prince Philip's death.

It was thought Harry might stay to see his grandmother on her birthday, after buying an open-ended ticket - but with pregnant Meghan Markle at home in the US he rushed back.

Harper's Bazaar royal editor Omid Scobie claims that while no plans have been officially confirmed, Prince Harry is expected to come back to the UK in July.

This would be for the unveiling of a statue of his late mother, Princess Diana.

He is thought to be planning to join brother William for a ceremony at Kensington Palace, rescheduled from last summer.

Harry flew to Los Angeles on an American Airlines flight from London, which arrived at LAX shortly after 1.30pm local time on Tuesday.

His black 4x4 was seen leaving the airport's private terminal minutes after the plane landed and was spotted again arriving in Montecito at around 4pm.

The royal's return follows a summit at Frogmore Cottage with Prince William, Kate and Prince Charles.
