Prince Harry is said to be eager to reunite with his family as soon as possible as he mourns his grandfather.
According to Robert Lacey, author of the book Battle of Brothers,
“Prince Philip’s funeral will be a reminder of the distinction between Britain’s working royal family and the bloodfamily — brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles and aunts, etc. Harry and Meghan have retired from being taxpayer-supported members of the working family, carrying out official engagements etc.
And the practicalities of being ‘In’ or ‘Out’ of that dimension have been at the centre of all the arguments in the last year — whether Harry can retain his military titles and so on.”
“Now the family — and the brothers, in particular — can concentrate on rebuilding a human relationship, and I would have thought the solemnity of their grandfather’s passing and the quiet family time together will paradoxically provide a very stimulating occasion to get started on that brother to brother. If they want to. The fact that Meghan is not there — for a very good family reason — should, in fact, greatly help with that.”
