Prince Harry may be returning to the UK in the next couple of months as a Princess Diana memorial event has been scheduled for September.


Prince Harry and Prince William reunited recently as a Princess Diana statue was unveiled at Kensington Palace to commemorate what would have been the Princess of Wales' 60th birthday. 

This was the first time that the brothers had met in person since their grandfather, Prince Philip, died aged 99 at Windsor Castle, and the brothers were reunited for his funeral.

A royal insider told The Sun that the brief reunion between the brother's at the statue unveiling was a step towards healing but a 'distance still remains' between the two.

The source said, “There were no peace talks and distance remains there. It is a step forward but this was not the time or the place."

It has been announced that the two brothers will be reunited once again, and sooner than we may have expected as Prince Harry may return to the UK in the Autumn.

Reports suggest that a royal event to commemorate Diana has been scheduled for September and it is expected to be announced very soon.

The royal insider revealed to The Sun, "September is a date pencilled in for a more extensive celebration of the statue, and Harry will want to return.”

It is expected that both Prince Harry and William will attend this event and it will take place at Kensington Palace, where her commemorative statue sits in the Sunken Gardens.

It is thought that Prince Harry may return to the UK with his wife Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex did not attend the recent statue unveiling as she has only recently given birth to her second child. 

Meghan Markle has not been to the UK since stepping down as a senior member of the royal family in 2020. 

However, royal reporters speculate that their youngest daughter Lilibet will still be too young to travel comfortably in September so Meghan may stay in the US with their two young children.

However, this has not been confirmed and it is unknown if Meghan will choose to support Prince Harry in person at this event.

Body language experts said that the brothers showed unity at the first unveiling of the statues and put aside their differences for the sake of their mother. It is hoped that this healing will continue at their next meeting in the Autumn.

 Judi James, a body language expert, told woman&home.com, "Given their history and given that they knew the eyes of the world were on them at this unveiling, William and Harry put in a very good body language performance of unity." 

Judi added, "These were two sons first and foremost, rather than two warring brothers."

The brothers' meeting was only brief as Prince Harry isolated for 5 days in the UK ahead of the unveiling and the actual event only lasted for a few hours. 

Soon after the event, Prince Harry returned to the US to support Meghan Markle after her 'proud' uncle Michael died aged 81.

The memorial for Princess Diana has yet to be officially confirmed officially by the royal family and it is unknown if Prince Harry and Meghan will return to the UK before this date.
