The Duke of Sussex is back for the unveiling of a memorial statue of his mother, Princess Diana, commissioned to honor her memory.
Harry flew to England on Friday and will now go into quarantine as final preparations are made for next Thursday’s ceremony.
Tonight the Queen, 95, was seen heading to Frogmore Cottage, where Harry is staying in the UK.
It is not known if the Queen and Harry actually saw each other in person, as the prince must self-isolate for five days due to Covid travel restrictions.
Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie, also lives at Frogmore Cottage with her husband Jack Brooksbank and their son August.
The property would have been divided into two parts.
The Princess Diana memorial event will be a “very personal moment” for Harry, William and their immediate family, a royal source has said.
But the plans were scaled back as many of Diana’s friends and colleagues were unable to attend due to the non-lifting of Covid regulations on June 21.
The Daily Mail claims that many of Diana’s friends have been disappointed with the move and that another larger event is scheduled to take place in September.
A spokeswoman for Harry confirmed the Duke had arrived ‘safely’ at his private Frogmore Cottage residence, near the Queen’s Windsor Castle home.
Diana’s sons will put their differences aside for the July 1 event, which would have been their mother’s 60th birthday.
Kensington Palace has confirmed that Diana’s royal brothers and close family – believed to be her siblings – and others involved in organizing the statue will attend the ceremony in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden.
A royal source said: “This is a small event and a very personal moment for the family.
“Plans have been scaled back due to current Covid-19 restrictions and media arrangements reflect both the size and tone of the event. “
Diana’s sons commissioned the statue in 2017 – the year of the 20th anniversary of her death – to celebrate her life and legacy.
William and Harry’s troubled relationship is well documented, but their mother will be at the center of their concerns next Thursday as they commemorate her life.

In a statement when announcing the project, the royal brothers said: “Our mother has touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help everyone who visits Kensington Palace reflect on its life and legacy. “
Among those in attendance at the unveiling will be members of the statue committee, sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley who created the artwork and garden designer Pip Morrison.
Harry lives in California with his wife Meghan and their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
As the United States is on the British government’s Amber List for Covid-19, he must quarantine himself for 10 days, but may end his isolation early as part of the release testing program by passing tests for coronavirus on days two and five.
These must be negative so that he can end the quarantine earlier.
