Has Prince Harry Already Returned To England?

Prince Harry is mourning the loss of his grandfather, Prince Philip, who died on April 9, 2021. Following the Duke of Edinburgh's death, many have been wondering whether or not Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, would head back to the UK to be with the Royal Family, and to attend the upcoming funeral services. According to People magazine, it was confirmed that Harry would travel to the UK for the first time since he and Meghan left in early 2020, and that he would be in attendance at his grandfather's services. However, Meghan's physician advised her not to travel, as she is currently pregnant, and expecting her second child in the summer of 2021.

Harry's trip to the UK is set to be one that is filled with emotions. Not only has Harry lost his grandfather, but he's also seeing his family for the first time since his bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey was televised. This trip will likely not be easy for Harry, and all eyes will be on the Duke of Sussex over the course of his time in the UK. So, has Harry already returned to England? Read on to find out.

Prince Harry touched down at Heathrow Airport on April 11, 2021

Prince Harry has indeed arrived in England. According to the Daily Mail, Harry boarded a British Airways flight from Los Angeles to Heathrow Airport in London on April 11, 2021. Harry was met by security upon his arrival, and left the airport in a black Range Rover. It's unclear where Harry will be staying for the next few days, as The Sun reports that he may be staying close to his brother at Nottingham Cottage, while The Sunday Times reports that he's at Frogmore Cottage, close to his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

It is believed that Harry will spend a few days in quarantine, abiding by the governments coronavirus travel rules, according to BBC News. Although a 10-day quarantine is required, there are exceptions — and one is for someone who needs to attend a funeral. Alternatively, Harry could choose to participate in "Test to Release," which, according to Gov.uk, means that Harry can take a COVID-19 test on the fifth day of his arrival, and, if it's negative, he would no longer need to quarantine. Harry arrived in the UK on a Sunday, which means he can take the COVID-19 test on Friday, and — pending a negative result — be out of isolation in time for the funeral on Saturday.
