Just minutes after arriving at Frogmore Cottage, Prince Harry was greeted by his grandmother, Elizabeth II, who came by car to welcome him.
His arrival was highly anticipated. Prince Harry landed in the United Kingdom, this Friday, June 25, to attend the inauguration of a statue of Diana, scheduled for July 1. For the occasion, the Duke of Sussex received a singular welcoming committee. According to the tabloid The Sun, Queen Elizabeth II drove to Frogmore Cottage to see her grandson, only minutes after his arrival.
It is within this outbuilding of Windsor that the Duke of Sussex will have to respect a period of isolation of five days. At the end of this quarantine, he will have to undergo a PCR test again. If the test is negative, Meghan Markle’s husband will be able to attend the tribute to his mother without any problems.
Despite these health rules, Elizabeth II wanted to greet her grandson from afar. A symbolic gesture, according to a close to the British royal family interviewed by The Sun. “I’m sure they will have a lot to talk about. The Queen obviously wanted to see her grandson after all that has happened. She could also use this opportunity to act as a peacemaker,” the meddling voice explained.
Strong tensions between Prince Harry and the British Royal family
In recent weeks, tensions between Prince Harry and the British royal family have increased. Meghan Markle’s husband has accused the Firm of “negligence” and has also been very critical of his father, Prince Charles. So many elements that have annoyed his older brother, Prince William.
However, the two men will have to put their grievances aside to honor their mother. Hence the blessed presence of Kate Middleton, ready to act as a buffer between her husband and brother-in-law, during the tribute to Princess Diana.
