Prince Harry will risk being “permanently divorced” from the royal family if he returns to the UK without an excuse, a royal expert has warned.
The Duke of Sussex is due to attend the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip on Saturday, although his pregnant wife Meghan will remain in the United States on the doctor’s advice.

And it is hoped that the circumstances of Harry’s return will help heal the growing rift between him and his brother William.

The brothers are ready to stand side by side behind their grandfather’s coffin, united in grief.

This will be the first time Harry has met other members of his family since the explosive interview he and his wife Meghan had with Oprah Winfrey.

And biographer Tom Bower says Harry must not be without excuse for recent events or he risks being “permanently divorced” from the family.

Writing in The Sun, he said: “Now Harry is facing a moment of calculation. Negotiations for his return to Britain for the funeral are sure to be tense.

“The tension will not be eased by the small number of mourners allowed at the funeral – only 30 due to Covid restrictions.

“Much will depend on the willingness of Charles and William to seek reconciliation.

“It will depend on Harry himself. If he arrives as a self-justified and unapologetic warrior, he risks sealing a permanent divorce with his family.

“If, at the sight of Philip and his grieving grandmother’s coffin, he is contrite, he could begin to rebuild a relationship with Charles and William.

Mr Bower said he expected the Queen to seize the opportunity in the days following her husband’s funeral to try to negotiate peace.

On Saturday, it emerged that the Duke of Sussex would be making the trip from the couple’s home in California and following Covid-19 protocols.

It is understood that Meghan, who is pregnant with her second child, had made every effort to join her husband but was not allowed to travel by her doctor.
