Prince Harry is scheduled to arrive in the UK on the eve of Queen Elizabeth II’s first anniversary of her passing, but he will not be participating in the family procession.
The Duke of Sussex is expected to make the journey without his wife Meghan Markle to attend an awards ceremony hosted by WellChild, a charity he has supported as a patron for 15 years.
WellChild announced his arrival on X (formerly known as Twitter) with the statement: “We are pleased to announce that Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex and WellChild Patron, will be attending the WellChild Awards, in partnership with GSK, on September 7th.”
He will be in London on September 8th, which marks the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s death. However, sources close to the royal family have informed Mail Online that Prince Harry has no plans to meet with any of his family members, including his father, King Charles, and his brother, Prince William.
An insider provided further details, explaining that King Charles also “doesn’t have any available time in his schedule” to meet with his youngest son. The Duke of Sussex’s relationship with the royal family remains strained, particularly after the release of his revealing memoir earlier this year.
