Sunday, April 11, Prince Harry was spotted on his arrival in London for the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip. The Duke of Sussex was not accompanied by his wife, Meghan Markle, who, pregnant with their second child, could not fly on “doctor’s orders”.

Prevented because of pregnancy. While the funeral of Prince Philip, who died on April 9 at the age of 99, will be held at Windsor Castle this Saturday, April 17, Prince Harry left the United States to attend the funeral. This Sunday, April 11, the Duke of Sussex was spotted at London’s Heathrow Airport without his wife Meghan Markle. Pregnant with his second child, a baby girl after their son Archie, the 39-year-old wife of Prince Harry did not make the trip. “She can not go on doctor’s orders” reports a source to US Weekly, “her pregnancy is too advanced to fly and it is recommended that she rest for the last few months.”

The Sussex couple revealed back in February that Meghan Markle was expecting a second child after suffering a miscarriage last summer. Since then, the duo has been “very cautious” about the former Suits actress’ health. “They’re taking this recommendation very seriously because she’s had a miscarriage before,” the source says, “the doctors don’t think the stress of it all is worth the risk of her losing another baby.”

If she will not attend the funeral of Prince Philip, Meghan Markle will be with the royal family in spirit. “Meghan and Harry have already spoken to the queen to express their affection,” the source points out. Even if some doubt the sincerity of the Duchess. The funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh will take place on Saturday, April 17, at Windsor Castle. Because of the pandemic, only about thirty people will be present.

The four children of Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II and their grandchildren will pay tribute to the deceased. For his part, Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister will not attend the ceremony, which will be broadcast on television to be followed by all British people. The body of Prince Philip will then be buried in the gardens of Frogmore House adjacent to Windsor Castle.

Prince Harry is now with his family. After the death of Prince Philip, his grandfather, the Duke of Sussex returned to British soil, alone, without his wife Meghan Markle. Pregnant with their second child, the mother of little Archie will be absent from the funeral of Prince Philip. A decision made on medical recommendation that could well delight the members of the British monarchy. Indeed, according to the words of journalist Henry-Jean Servat published in Le Parisien, “Meghan’s absence suits everyone, starting with her.

The reason? More than a month after her exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex “would have been very badly received and family relations would have been poisonous” at the funeral of Prince Philip. According to Henry-Jean Servat, “Meghan would have been a little ashamed to be there”. Nevertheless, this reunion will be an opportunity for Harry to reconcile with his family. A good thing for royal biographer Penny Junor. “They need to be together,” she tells The Sun.

It will be an opportunity to bring them face to face

According to Penny Junor, it is very important for the British royal family to get together after the interview that shook the crown. “The pandemic has kept Harry away from the family for so long, it has been impossible to resolve their differences and this is what they need (…) This will be an opportunity to put them face to face”. On his side, Harry does not give up, he demands an apology for Meghan. No doubt that these next days will be full of twists and turns.
