PRINCE Harry risks being “permanently divorced” from the Royal Family if he returns to the UK unapologetic over Megxit, a royal biographer has warned.
The Duke of Sussex is due to attend his grandfather’s funeral on Saturday, while his pregnant wife Meghan stays in California.
It will be the first time Prince Harry meets other members of his family following the bombshell tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired last month.
But royal biographer Tom Bower wrote in the Sun that Harry must not appear unapologetic for recent events when he arrives back in the UK.
“Now, Harry faces a moment of reckoning,” Bower wrote.
“The negotiations for his return to Britain for the funeral are certain to be fraught
“The tension will not be helped by the small number of mourners allowed at the funeral — just 30 because of Covid restrictions.
“Much will depend on whether Charles and William are willing to seek reconciliation.
“That will depend on Harry himself. If he arrives as a self-righteous, unapologetic warrior, he risks sealing a permanent divorce from his family.
“If, in the sight of Philip’s coffin and his grieving grandmother, he is contrite, he might begin to rebuild a relationship with Charles and William.”
It comes as Harry arrived in the UK from California and WILL join the royal family at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral next weekend.
Harry is “united in grief” with his family over the death of Prince Philip and is now in quarantine after arriving back in Britain on Sunday
Meghan, 39, who is heavily pregnant, made “every effort” to be able to travel but didn’t receive medical clearance from her physician, say sources.
The service for the Duke of Edinburgh will take place at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday April 17 – the same place where Harry and Meghan wed in 2018.
The Duke’s funeral will mark the first time he has come face-to-face with his family since he and Meghan sat down for their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey last month.
