The 36-year-old is reported to have met police cars and security staff waiting for his arrival, put in a black Range Rover and left for the palace.

The Sun claimed he might have been taken to Kensington Palace to stay at Nottingham Cottage, the same home he occupied with Meghan Markle when they were still in the UK.

Earlier, Briefly News reported that Meghan was set to miss the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral. According to the couple, Meghan is pregnant and will stay away from the royal ceremony on her doctor's advice against flying.

This will be Harry's first reunion with his people since their interview with Oprah Winfrey, which went viral and negatively painted some of the royals.

However, this will not be a time to form any feud as the family says goodbye to a man that has served his country nearly all his life.

"I was reminded today of this incredible vintage @parismatch_magazine from 1957 I acquired a few years ago. I was blown away the minute I spotted it. It always reminds me of the unique, historic reference points that Royal photography provides."
