Prince Harry may stay in the UK for the Queen's birthday on Wednesday, despite initial reports he would leave shortly after Prince Philip's funeral. 

Prince Harry may be hanging around Britain longer than we anticipated. 

The Duke of Sussex bought an open flight ticket to London from Los Angeles, meaning he is not bound to any particular return date. Royal experts now suspect he may stay in Britain to ring in the Queen's 95th birthday, which is expected to be a lowkey affair at Windsor Castle. 

Prince Harry's return to the UK marked his first face-to-face meeting with Prince William following his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March. The family reunion was predicted to be a tense experience for both men, with the brothers' relationship reportedly strained following the bombshell revelations of the highly watched CBS special.

A number of shocking claims were made by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle during the 90-minute program, including allegations of racism against an unnamed senior royal. The statements prompted a rare response from Buckingham Palace, as well as Prince William, who insisted the Royal Family are 'very much not a racist family.' 

Despite the challenges of the past few months, the brothers walked in solidarity with each other at Prince Philip's funeral on Saturday. They separated upon entry to St. George's Chapel, with Prince William joining Kate Middleton in the pews while Prince Harry was left to sit alone. However, they reconnected once again after the service, chatting civilly to each other in the grounds of Windsor Castle. While the nature of their conversation could not be heard to outsiders, several lipreaders believe it focused on their late grandfather. 

Prince Harry is currently staying at Frogmore Cottage, just 1.8 miles from his grandmother's residence at Windsor Castle.
