Prince Harry has reunited with his cousin Princess Eugenie after returning to the UK for the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip, Page Six has confirmed.

Eugenie, 31, is the first member of the British royal family to see Harry, 36, in more than a year since he, his wife, Meghan Markle, and their son, Archie, stepped down from their royal roles and moved to California.

The Princess currently lives at Frogmore Cottage, Harry and Meghan’s UK home, alongside her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their newborn son, in August.

This is the first time Harry has met his once kidnapped first cousin, who was born in February and bears the middle name Philip as a nod to his great-grandfather.

It is not yet known whether Harry will also meet his cousin Zara Tindall’s newborn son, Lucas, who was born last month and also got his middle name from the late Duke.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex offered Frogmore, which is in Queen Elizabeth II’s estate in Windsor, when Eugenie and Brooksbank, 31, found out they were waiting.

At the time, a source told us, “It’s fully equipped for a new family and a new baby. It is still Meghan and Harry’s British residence, they will always stay there when they return, but they are delighted to be able to open their home to Princess Eugenie and Jack as they start their own family.

Harry and Markle have renovated Frogmore to the tune of around $ 3 million in public funds, although they have announced their intention to reimburse Britain for the cost.

The couple lived in the cabin for less than six months before moving to Canada and then to Montecito, California.

Harry traveled to London’s Heathrow Airport on Sunday and is currently in quarantine at Frogmore under UK rules ahead of Philip’s funeral on Saturday.

Heavily pregnant Markle, who is expecting a baby girl in early summer, was forced to stay at home in the United States after seeing a doctor – although she wants to join her husband, as we have revealed .

All eyes will be on Harry and his older brother Prince William on Saturday as they are seen together in public for the first time since Commonwealth service in March last year, days before Harry and Markle, 39, never leave the UK.

Their reunion will come following Harry and Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in February, in which the “Suits” alum insisted that William’s wife Kate Middleton, the had made her cry during a bridesmaid dress fitting before her wedding in May 2018.

The couple also made allegations of racism within the royal family – and Harry said he believed his father, Prince Charles, and William, 38, were ‘trapped’ in their royal roles.

Former British Prime Minister Sir John Major told the BBC on Sunday that the funeral would be the perfect time to end the family rift.

Major – who was appointed special guardian to the princes after the death of their mother, Princess Diana, in 1997 – told BBC One’s’ Andrew Marr Show ‘:’ The friction we are told has arisen is a friction that it is best to end as quickly as possible. “

He added: “They shared emotions. They share the grief at the present time over the death of their grandfather. I think [this] is an ideal opportunity. I very much hope that it will be possible to mend any divisions that may exist. “

Philip died on Friday at the age of 99.
