Before the unveiling of the Diana statue
Harry landed in London
On Thursday, Prince William and Prince Harry will unveil a statue of their late mother Diana. Harry is already in London to serve his quarantine at Frogmore Cottage. The rest of his family appears to have stayed in the United States.
Prince Harry is in England. According to British media reports, he landed in his former home in London around noon.

However, due to Corona restrictions, only a handful of guests were there – including close relatives. Instead, a larger ceremony should follow in September, to which friends of the princess, such as Elton John and his husband, would also be invited.
Harry’s wife Megan did not come to England, it is said. Only a few weeks ago she had given birth to the couple’s second child. Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 4th, and brother Archie celebrated his second birthday in May. But he doesn’t seem to be involved either.
