Prince Harry has landed in London, from Los Angeles, ahead of the funeral for his grandfather, Prince Philip.
According to the Sun, Harry was seen disembarking a British Airways plane on Sunday, wearing “chinos, a jacket and black face mask”.
It is unknown whether Harry will undertake the full ten days of quarantine required by the UK government for travellers from the US. He may be granted an exemption due to the death or following a day 5 negative test.
The Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday at Windsor Castle, two months before his 100th birthday and only a short time after a month-long stay in hospital.
Philip’s wishes are the driving force behind the plans for his send-off, which will be held in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday.
His coffin will be transported from the castle to the chapel in a specially modified Land Rover he helped to design, followed by Prince Charles and senior royals on foot.
Only 30 people will attend as guests due to the pandemic, expected to be his children, grandchildren and other close family.
Meghan Markle has been advised by her physician not to travel to the UK for the funeral, a Palace spokesman said.
It is understood Duchess of Sussex made every effort to be able to travel with Harry, who will be among the mourners, but has not received the medical clearance to board a plane.
Originally 800 people would have been due to gather to pay their respects to the nation’s longest serving consort, but Philip wanted a low-key affair.
All public elements of the funeral have been cancelled. It will be televised but take place entirely in the grounds of the castle, the Palace said.
The funeral will take place on April 17 in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, and a national minute’s silence will be observed in Britain as it begins at 3pm.
The Queen has decided the royal family will enter two weeks of royal mourning, and engagements will continue appropriate to the circumstances, a senior royal official said.
