British Prince Harry returned to the UK to participate in a farewell ceremony with his grandfather Prince Philip on April 17, the Sun reports, citing sources.
According to the information received, the Prince took off on a British Airways flight from Los Angeles, which arrived at Heathrow. According to the publication, Harry will stay at Kensington Palace and live in the cottage Nottingham, located on the residence territory.
“”Today, he (Prince Harry) landed at Heathrow Airport. I saw him get into the car,” the witness said.
Upon arrival, the prince will be forced to observe a quarantine for 10 days. The period of self-isolation can be reduced to five days if you receive a negative coronavirus test. However, he will be allowed to attend the farewell ceremony, as, according to a government decree, those arriving from abroad can “attend the funerals of family members or friends.””
Earlier, Prince Harry, who lives with his family in the United States, confirmed that he would come to the service. At the same time, his wife Meghan Markle, who is currently expecting a child, will refrain from traveling on the advice of a doctor. Queen Elizabeth II, their four children, and grandchildren will participate in a private farewell ceremony with the Duke of Edinburgh. The funeral service and funeral of Prince Philip, who died on April 9 at the hundredth year of his life, will be held on April 17 at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace said on Saturday.
The farewell ceremony will take place in a narrow circle of family and friends with the participation of no more than 30 people. It is expected that at 3 pm on a funeral day, a minute of silence will be announced. The funeral will not be a state funeral, as Prince Philip himself wanted. As the Guardian notes, at the request of the prince himself, the coffin will be placed on a modified Land Rover, with Royal Marines porters standing on either side of it. The coffin will be wrapped in the Duke’s personal standard and will bear the naval cap and sword of Prince Philip.
