Prince Harry has officially reunited with his family as he says goodbye to his beloved grandfather.

The Duke of Sussex appeared alongside his family at the funeral of Prince Philip, who died aged 99 on April 9.

The funeral, which took place on Saturday, April 17 (early morning Sunday, Australian time) with just 30 close relatives and friends, was a beautiful, heartfelt affair bringing the close-knit royals together for the first time in months.

Prince Harry moved to the US shortly before lockdown began back in March 2020.

Settling in his new home in Santa Barbara alongside wife Duchess Meghan and their one-year-old son Archie, the Sussexes laid low while the COVID-19 pandemic continued.

Of course, it’s assumed Harry and Meghan would likely have wanted to return to the UK sooner, but travel and social distancing restrictions have remained in place since their move.

Prince Philip’s saddening death sparked Harry to fly back to the UK immediately this week, where he quarantined for several days before finally reuniting with his family.

In the sombre images from the funeral at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, Harry is seen looking sad, yet at ease with his family.

And shortly after the service, he and Prince William were seeing chatting together with Duchess Catherine – a reunion long in the waiting, and wonderful to see.

This marked the first time the brothers had reunited in more than a year.


This also marks the first time Harry has publicly been seen with his family since his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, which delved into some of the desperate hardships he and Meghan were confronted with after marrying.

In the interview, he and Meghan told Oprah of the despairing lack of support they received from the royals while media waged war on their names.

But he also insisted that while he and older brother Prince William no doubt have their differences, he hopes they will one day regain their strong bond.

And seeing the images from the funeral today truly do prove that Harry is all for making that happen – as is William, no doubt.

While it’s awful they were reunited in such a circumstance, we’re comforted in knowing that no matter what happens, the brothers will ultimately have each other to rely on.
