- As Queen Elizabeth is set to celebrate her first birthday without Prince Phillip, it is reported that Prince Harry may stay in the United Kingdom to help her as she is still mourning
- The embattled Prince Harry is also reported to have an open return ticket to the United States so he can stay until the Queen’s birthday is over
- On the other hand, media reports suggest the Prince Harry is anxious to miss the Queen’s birthday and return to the United States for his pregnant wife, Meghan Markle
Still mourning the loss of Prince Phillip, who passed away earlier this month, media reports suggest that Prince Harry will stay in London for Queen Elizabeth’s 95th birthday this week.
The Duke of Sussex returned to the United Kingdom for the burial of his grandfather and it’s reported that he was scheduled to his trip short in for him to return to his heavily pregnant wife, Meghan Markle.
According to the Daily Express website, the latest information is that Harry may have to reschedule his plans and remain for the Queen's 95th birthday on Wednesday.
The England-based publication has it that an informer has told The Sun that if all goes well, he could stay for the Queen's birthday.
On the other hand, royal author Richard Kay wrote in his weekly column in the MailOnline that Harry has an "open return" ticket to the United States of America but he is also anxious to return to Meghan – who is heavily pregnant. Wrote Kay:
"Although Harry is understood to have an open return air ticket – meaning he could travel at any time – he is anxious to return to America to be with Meghan, who is thought to be seven months pregnant with their second child."
Moreover, a royal expert going by the name of Victoria Arbiter, has said that it would be nice if Harry could be a part of the Queen's birthday as she is reaching a milestone despite still in mourning. Said Abriter as per the Daily Express:
"Is there any clue as to when Harry is going to be returning to the US? It would be nice to think he could stick around in the UK a little longer to mend some of those bridges.
"There has been no official word yet. Having been away from his heavily pregnant wife for a week, he is understood to be keen to get back."
The Queen is set to celebrate her eagerly anticipated birthday on Wednesday, which marks the first without the late Phillip since 1948.
It is also indicated that the birthday comes as Harry and Prince William reunited at Philip's funeral, thus marking their first-ever face-to-face reunion following the explosive interview with US television star, Oprah Winfrey.
Briefly News reported that the funeral of Prince Philip came with good tidings for Harry and his father Charles as it served as a stepping stone towards their reconciliation
Sources from the royal family indicated that the two even plan to spend some quality time together and reconnect in the coming days. Prince Harry and his family have been at loggerheads since January last year when he and his wife stepped down from royal duties.
