Seems like the fued between Harry and the royal family may remain unresolved judging by his return to Montecito one day before the queen’s birthday who is currently in mourning.
The Duke of Sussex, 36, is thought to have flown into Los Angeles on an American Airlines flight from London Heathrow shortly after 1.30pm local time yesterday, 20th April.
His chauffeur-driven car was seen leaving the private terminal at LAX, reserved for celebrities and the super-rich, and was spotted again arriving at the Sussexes' Montecito mansion at around 4pm.
Harry’s return to the US is literally just 24 hours before his grandmother the queen’s birthday who is turning 95 today 21 April. The queen who has been the world’s oldest reigning monarch will spend the day at Windsor Castle alone surrounded by a bubble of staff because of the pandemic.
After the funeral on Saturday there was some hope of reconciliation as the two brothers were spotted walking together.
Later a face-to-face meeting is reported to have taken place between the brothers and their father. According to Telegraph a one-to-one meeting did not take place however according to MailOnline’s Dan Wootton a private meeting between the two brothers and their father did take place so that no one’s words can be misconstrued.
Ouch two against one is a pretty difficult place to be.
According to a senior royal insider;
'Obviously after the worldwide fallout of the Oprah interview trust has to be rebuilt.
'There was no official wake after the funeral, but Charles, William and Harry took the opportunity to speak and catch-up face to face after many months apart.
'They were only able to spend a short time together outdoors given Covid restrictions and also without staff, including senior courtiers, overhearing what was being said.
'It was important to Charles and William that they were both there together. It means nothing spoken about can be misconstrued in the future.'
Another senior royal claimed that crucially Charles and William have the Queen’s support to deal with the situation. The source explained;
'The Queen has made it clear to senior advisers that she is united with Charles and William, and was disappointed with aspects of Harry and Meghan's interview.'
Harry did have an open-ended ticket and initially it was thought that Harry may have stayed for the queens birthday however whatever was said has clearly lead him to leave earlier.
What happens next waits to be seen.
