Prince Harry is expected to attend the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip in the UK – marking his first trip home since leaving the royal family, a source told The Post on Friday.

But it’s unclear whether the heavily pregnant Meghan Markle – who is due to have the couple’s second child in early summer – will join Harry, even if she wants to be by his side, the source said.

His ability to fly for nearly 12 hours between the Sussexes’ California home to England will depend on orders from his doctor and advice from the air carrier, the source added.

But Harry wouldn’t miss the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral for the world.

“Harry was extremely close to his grandfather,” a British royal source told The Post. “He will, of course, be there no matter how difficult relations between the Sussexes and the family.” “

Harry’s expected return to his homeland comes after he and Markle parted ways with the royal family in January 2020 – and weeks after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that rocked Buckingham Palace.

During the unrestricted two-hour shoot, Markle revealed that someone in the Royal Family wondered how dark the skin of their son Archie could be.

In February, Harry said he kept in touch with his grandparents through Zoom.

“We zoomed in on them a few times,” he told talk show host James Corden. “They saw Archie running around.

The Duke of Sussex laughed as he remembered that instead of clicking to leave the call, Prince Philip was shutting down his laptop.

“He’s just doing ‘doof’! Harry said, mimicking the closing of a laptop.

All senior royals are expected to attend Prince Philip’s funeral at Windsor Castle amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with a service at St. George’s Chapel – where Harry and Meghan married in 2018.

A representative for the Sussexes was not available for comment.
