Prince Harry’s return for Diana statue unveiling ‘in serious doubt after rift’

Prince Harry's return to the UK to watch Princess Diana's statue unveiling is now in "serious doubt" after the royal feud, experts have claimed.

This comes after sources claimed Harry and Prince William had a "sparse" conversation about the event during the Duke of Sussex's flying visit for Prince Philip's funeral.

It was previously expected that despite alleged rifts between the two, the royal brothers were going to come together in July to sign off their late mum's upcoming birthday statue.

However, royal experts are now doubtful that Harry will return to attend the ceremony in the summer after all.

Phil Dampier, a royal author, told the Sun Online that he "didn't think" Meghan would return to the UK.

"And there must now be a serious doubt as to whether Harry will come over for the unveiling of a statue for Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday in July," he added.

Harry described his current relationship with his brother as "space" in his CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, following months of speculation over a falling out.

But it appeared that any supposed rifts between the two were starting to heal at the funeral of Prince Philip, when the two were spotted chatting together after their late grandfather's ceremony.

Mr Dampier said that the discussions after the funeral "were a start" but the relationship between the former Fab Four is "now so broken and delicate that everyone is looking for the slightest signs it is getting better or worse".

“Harry and Meghan now have all they want to make them happy if they are going to be. A son, a daughter on the way, their freedom from the royal family and the means to make money and get involved in cases which interest them.

"To carry on a war with Harry’s blood family is unnecessary and counter-productive, and the sooner they realise that the better."

Princess Diana's statue is set to be unveiled on July 1, which would have been the late Princess Diana’s 60th birthday.

The Princess of Wales' statue will stand in the Sunken Gardens in Kensington Palace, which was one of Diana's favourite spots.

Daily Star has reached out to the Sussex's representative for comment.
