Prince Harry flew out of LAX on Thursday, plans to be ‘in and out’ of the UK

Do I have to try to figure out what the quarantine protocols are for a vaccinated British citizen arriving in the UK from America? Please don’t tell me I have to try to figure it out. British and American outlets can’t figure it out either. There were people insisting that Prince Harry would have to quarantine for ten days in Britain before the fakakta statue unveiling on July 1st. But I think we can safely say that is untrue, because the unveiling is six days away and Harry only boarded a flight to London (from LAX) late Thursday.

So, Harry is probably already in the UK by the time we’re talking about this (he is, I just saw it confirmed on Twitter). My guess is that he has to stay in some kind of quarantine – likely at Frogmore Cottage – for five days, and then he’ll do this stupid statue unveiling and then what? According to Us Weekly, he’s headed back to Montecito right away:

Quick trip! Prince Harry’s time in the U.K. will be brief as he and brother Prince William reunite to unveil their late mother Princess Diana’s statue next week, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

“It’ll be a fleeting visit,” the insider says, noting it won’t be as long as Harry’s April visit for Prince Philip’s funeral service. “He’ll be in and out.”

The former military pilot, 36, wants to “get back” to his wife, Meghan Markle, in Montecito, California, the source explains, especially since they just welcomed their second child, daughter Lili, on June 4.

“While the brothers are uniting for the unveiling, sadly, they won’t get to spend much time together,” the insider adds.

I hope he does head back to Montecito quickly. I halfway hoped he wouldn’t even go to the damn unveiling, especially given all of the British melodrama, lies and racism. But here we are. At least he’ll get to spend some time with his cousin Eugenie, Jack and baby August. He’s reportedly going to see his grandmother while he’s in Windsor too. I just don’t know.

    Just saw this. God’s speed Harry.

    • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

      @Snuffles And God save him from the fascist tabloids. I dare not even look at the Daily Heil (not that I want to give it my clicks anyway). I bet they’re going insane. I predict that Piss Morgan will be along at any minute with a ‘how dare he’ rant.

      • Chelsea says:

        The good thing about quarantine is that he cant go anywhere. It’s not like they pretend he was getting to a fistfight this weekend with William at KP because we all know he’s stuck inside in Windsor for 5 days. By the time that ends it will be time for the stupid statue thing and then he can just go home. I’m also very happy to see that the size of the event has been downsized to the brothers, people invloved in putting up the statue, and a few of the Spencers. Hopefully the Queen being in Scotland that day and the days leading up into it can momentarily distract the RRs but i wouldn’t hold my breath; we all know they treat Harry like he’s the most important person in that family with the way they obsess over him.

    • I love that he is honoring his mother and showing up for the artist who has put so much into this work. Harry is so very much cut from a different cloth than his father and the other brother. Honor, duty, and forging his own path according to his values: God love him! Harry is not afraid to show up at the front lines and he proves that with every action he takes. You’re the best of your mother, Harry. God keep you safe while you pay tribute to your mother and then see you home to your loving wife and children. Don’t let the 🦃🦃🦃 get you down.

      • bettyrose says:

        I agree about honoring his mother, although he honors her in many ways every day, but yes respecting the artist is a big deal too. Very classy.

    • taris says:

      the tabloids will be all over him nonstop for the next week. i actually feel a bit nervous for him while he’s on that miserable island.
      lots of fake stories will be coming in the days ahead from the experts and their nonexistent “sources”. will just have to wait for omid to clear it all up when it’s all over!

  2. Sofia says:

    So yes the quarantine is 10 days normally but you can get it shortened if you take part in the “Test to Release” scheme and if you test negative on your 5th day, you’re good to go. It’s applicable for anything and everything, not just funerals.

    And as for his arrival. Not surprised he’s gone. I know that’s not what some people wanted but it’s his mother. It’s not like he’s going to a birthday party for William or something.

    • Cecilia says:

      After the scotland tour was announced i even thought for a second that the whole statue unveiling was off because the tour is until july 1st right? And william is on that tour.

      • Sofia says:

        He’s on it for the first day only which isn’t 1st July

      • Chica1971 says:

        @Cecilia.. I think the Scotland trip is too give Willam positive headlines. BRF also worried about Scotland. Wills is also a wimp and a great way to avoid talking to Harry. That’s kingly worship.

      • Nina says:

        PWT trip with the Queen reminds me of the time you messed up at school and your parents have to go see the principal to clean up your mess.

    • Cessily says:

      That seems ridiculous since he is probably the only one fully vaccinated (since everyone I know in his age group is in the USA) and PW and Kate Middleton have not had the second vaccine which has a two week period after to be considered fully vaccinated.

      • Sofia says:

        He’s got to follow the laws of the country he’s entering. It would be an optics nightmare if he skips quarantine even though he’s fully vaccinated

      • Cessily says:

        @sofia I get that but it would be nice to see an article that points out that the Cambridge should tested also since they are the ones that are not fully vaccinated.
        (Pretty sure that Prince Harry was fully vaccinated by the time the Vax live event happened especially since Selena Gomez is a Kidney transplant survivor and has a weakened immune system due to the anti rejection medications she must take to survive and lupus which is an autoimmune disease she has.)

    • Louise177 says:

      It’s baffling to me people are angry or disappointed that Harry is going. It’s to honor his mother. This is something he was very involved in and supported. It’s not as if he’s going to a RF event.

      • BnlurNforever says:

        It is a royal family event. That’s the point of the anger that some are feeling. The Windsors have commodified Diana and use her to their benefit, or as a scape goat depending the preference that day. I deleted the rest of my post because I already said, I would keep my opinion about this trip to myself.

      • Tessa says:

        It is also IMO an event for the Spencers and Diana’s close friends. The royals cut Diana loose and treated her badly. But they still use her after she died and William plays the Diana card when it suits him (e.g. the Granny Diana cards from the children).

      • Ginger says:

        It’s not a royal event. It’s a Spencer family event with her family and the sculptor. Charles, Kate, the Queen won’t be there.

        This is his mom and he can honor her however he chooses. We are observers we don’t control his actions.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        Apparently, the ONLY people who will be there will be Harry, TOB (and MAYBE Keen), and some Spencer relatives (prob. only sisters and brother) due to the new Covid Delta outbreaks. There were originally going to be about 100 of her former staff and friends. That was scuttled from what I read.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes, Sofia! This is solely his opportunity to show his dedication to her and it’s important to Harry. I am happy that he went, as it tells us and everyone, that he will not be bullied out of doing what he wants on The Salty Island Of Racist and Bully’s! Harry is a grown man and he is an honorable man, unlike his brother. Harry is also cut from the same cloth as his mother and lives a life of duty and service to those in need. Harry won’t be bothered by what they say and how they treat him as he is the bigger man of the entire family!

  3. Gina says:

    I hoped he won’t go! Well, he knows the situation better and has his reasons apparently.

    • Veronica Rhodes says:

      I’m not angry but definitely disappointed. I think there is more therapy work to be done here. Constantly going back for the abuse is not healthy at all. It’s a statue.

      • Woke says:

        What you are implying by saying he needs more therapy is very wrong. I get the disappointment but that’s his mother and he’s been involved in the project since the beginning.

      • Maria says:

        Harry is not your family. Anger and disappointment are not yours to feel at his decision how to remember his mother.

      • Mel says:

        It’s his Mother, he felt and STILL feels her loss accutely. It’s not about them, it’s about his Mom and he should be able to do what he wants. The only feelings he has to worry about aside from his own are his wife and children, besides why should he let THEM control the narrative and drive him away from a tribute to his Mother.

      • girl_ninja says:

        Why would Harry miss out on something that honors his mother just because of his horrible family and racist UK media? He has a right to be there, that doesn’t mean he’s in ‘need’ of more therapy. Come on now.

      • Haylie says:

        This isn’t about you. It’s about his mother, who he loves very much.

        He’s going to honor her, in spite of Will’s antics and the tabloids.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Veronica Rhodes, Harry doesn’t need more therapy and I don’t know what you are talking about. Harry is the most well adjusted out of the entire bunch!!

      • AD says:

        I agree with you Maria. I support them but I will always respect their decision. At the end of the day that is his family and he gets to choose how he reacts.

        I am not related to William and could care less and that is because he is not my brother. We should always remember that because they are in the outs does not mean he loves him any less.

        I read a lot of hurt in his voice when explaining the situation on the Oprah interview. If we are trying to control how he should or should not react that makes us no better than those who should not be named. He is dealing with a lotta hate over there let us not pile on. Love and respect everyone.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        How does going back there twice in almost a year and half constitute as ‘constantly’ or representative as a need for more therapy?

        As BothSidesNow said, Harry is the most well adjusted out of the entire bunch.

        The BM is probably the most disappointed that he went. They’ll have to rewrite any prewritten stories about Meghan “making” him not go. Now the BM and “sources” can focus on any of their other nonsensical stories.

    • Natalie C Tyler says:

      I think that Prince Harry feels an incredible bond with his mother; I think he knows that he is carrying on with her ideals. Had my mother died when I was just about to turn 13–that would be the defining moment in my life. I also think that the public should be aware of Harry’s Diana and not William’s travesty of Diana.

  4. Merricat says:

    Harry has an irreproachable duty toward his mother. I wanted him to stay home in Cali, but I love his sense of honor.

    • Eurydice says:

      Not just duty to his mother, but a man of duty, overall – duty to family, to country, to those in need.

      • Amen, Eurydice. Semper Fidelis! Harry is honorable and brave and does his duty —- not blindly, but with great forethought as to what is right by his code.

  5. MsIam says:

    Well he’s a better person than me. Or maybe he’s going to punch William in the nose!

    • Cecilia says:

      William honestly deserves nothing less.

    • Jais says:

      Pretty sure he’s going to metaphorically punch William in the nose through whatever he says in his speech.

      • Feeshalori says:

        Maybe that’s his purpose in going other than to honor his mother. To blast William and the others out of the water with a rousing speech. I doubt Harry will do that but one can always dream. But hopefully there will be a few pointed remarks in his speech. I wish him well over there and the sooner he’s back home to Meghan and the babies, the better.

      • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

        I hope he does an Earl Spencer on PWT’s arse.

      • Oh, that’s good…Andrew’s Nemesis…. – let your Spencer flag fly, Harry! You – like her – need no royal title to make a difference in the world.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Andrew’s Nemesis, Earl Spencer did that speech at Diana’s funeral for his own PR, not for Diana. He kept up her lie about the HRH, though, when it is public record she exchanged it willingly for more money from Charles.

        Earl Spencer refused his sister refuge at Althorp, refused to let her live there in her separation and divorce. Then turned around, did a PR show at the funeral, and spent 20 years making money off her personal belongings and visits to her gravesite at Althorp. He is trash.

        Harry is a far better human than Spencer will ever be.

      • ElleE says:

        @NASH re: Diana’s family: why did her body lie in the morgue in Paris for almost a week and why was it no one in the Spencer family went to claim it? Why Charles? A man she divorced, which anyone from the BRF at all? It seems like the Spencer’s have the same sense of familial duty /love /loyalty as the BRF (as in none at all).

        Is that true? Did her family support her in life or in death? That was so strange…

      • LRob says:

        ElleE, that doesn’t seem right. My understanding/recollection is that Charles arrived in Paris with Diana’s sisters late on the day she was pronounced dead. He in fact insisted, I believe out of respect for the young princes and her role as the mother of a future King, that a royal flag drape her casket, that RAF plane transport the party and once in England a royal guard carry the casket to a hearse which drove her to the mortuary.

      • BooyahB!tches says:

        @ElleE, absolutely wrong, her body was NEVER in a morgue; she was placed in a private room, and Prince Charles arrived with Diana’s sisters, and they took the body home a few hours later.

      • ElleE says:

        Thanks for answering. I didn’t one what her sisters went with Charles. Even as a was typing my comment, I wondered if I should have not used the French word morgue which means the room at a hospital where one is kept until family comes. It sounds morbid in English and came across as uncaring.

    • Tessa says:

      . Earl Spencer also trashed Diana in letters he sent her during the argument so the ones who did not like Diana and were Charles people could use that as ammunition. Charles Spencer also was a bad husband like his ex brother in law was.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        notasugarhere, Earl Spencer sued and won the lawsuit against the tabloid that stated he had refused her to live at Althorpe. She wanted one “house” and he thought it was too exposed since the media would still be able to see her, IIRC. He offered a different “house” on the estate and she refused. I’m not saying that he doesn’t have faults, but I think we need to keep to the facts.

      • BooyahB!tches says:

        “Trashed” his sister?? What on earth are you reading? British tabloid gossip??? Good God woman, back off and stay silent about that which you know nothing, you sound like those snipey trolls on Daily Mail. I remember specifically at the time Charles Spencer saying that what Diana brought with her was too much for anyone in the family to deal with, and it wasn’t said in a mean way: he meant the paparazzi and attention and so on…and in the end Diana agreed. She only wanted to stay there for a while and he offered her an entire pile on the estate, but she said no in the end. That rousing speech at Diana’s funeral was THE BEST SPEECH EVER. He loved his sister whole heartedly, and if he did write her a letter, it wasn’t “trashing her”, it was a brother and sister having a PRIVATE conversation.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Booyah
        Help me with this…
        Speeches can be made and history can be revised, but how did Diana’s brother in question love his sister “wholeheartedly “ when it’s well documented through her recollection and actions to the contrary. Diana’s whole family threw her to the Windsor wolves and benefited from that. Diana wanted out before the marriage and during and she found no support from her family. No attempts from them to help her were ever known. Unless, you can show me some proof of her family speaking or acting like they were trying to help her escape who are you to tell another poster to not speak about things they don’t know?

        You can miss family once they’ve passed, but while they were alive what were your actions towards them?

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        I believe Earl Spencer to be an opportunistic flip flopper. Yes, the eulogy was rousing – did he mean what he said then about his sister or does he mean what he’s been saying of late? June 15th via People re the Bashir interview:
        For Charles Spencer, 57, it was important to inform the world of the truth behind the interview. He told GMB on Tuesday, “I hope she’d be pleased the truth is out to the context. She was taken into a very dark place, her paranoia was fed.” Nice brother, sounds like William.
        His eulogy…
        https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2017/08/30/read-what-dianas-brother-said-her-funeral-shocked-many-and-delighted-millions/617496001/
        “Fundamentally she had not changed at all from the big sister who mothered me as a baby, fought with me at school and endured those long train journeys between our parents’ homes with me at weekends.”

        “It is a tribute to her level-headedness and strength that despite the most bizarre-like life imaginable after her childhood, she remained intact, true to herself. “There is no doubt that she was looking for a new direction in her life at this time. She talked endlessly of getting away from England, mainly because of the treatment that she received at the hands of the newspapers. I don’t think she ever understood why her genuinely good intentions were sneered at by the media, why there appeared to be a permanent quest on their behalf to bring her down. It is baffling.”

        Does Earl Spencer believe his sister to have been level-headed and strong or does he believe her to have been paranoid? Scarily, the words, he used in the eulogy to describe Diana’s treatment by the media, easily apply to Meghan. He made pledges of protection to William & Harry in the eulogy. What exactly has he done for Harry? He did his virtue signal call to the MEDIA after news of Meghan’s miscarriage came out. I’m not aware of anything he has said publicly in support/understanding of Harry & Meghan leaving. You would think it’s the least he could do after his rousing eulogy speech and words about the newspapers/media. There is a lot more that could be brought up about Diana’s brother-Dianaland being one. Hard to have faith in someone who has a demonstrated habit of talking out of both sides of his mouth. Still haven’t come up with a reasonable explanation for him to pursue the Bashir investigation last fall, unless he was asked to.jmo

    • Liz version 700 says:

      William deserves a good punch in the nose, and it could only help his ever increasingly unfortunate face.

  6. Cecilia says:

    Whew best of luck to him. He’s going to need it.

    • Myra says:

      For sure. I wouldn’t even take a glass of water from these people.

      • Cecilia says:

        I wouldn’t even breathe the same air. Its probably poisonous.

      • Dee says:

        London has a lot of air pollution. Kate could take up the air quality cause and really do some good for Early Years babies and toddlers. But that sounds like work.

      • Myra says:

        I co-sign about the air pollution in London. My least favourite place in the UK.

  7. swirlmamad says:

    Do you, Harry, honor your beloved mother, and then get home to your wife and children. I am not surprised he went after all, especially after how clear he’s been about how much his mother’s legacy and memory has gotten him through the last year or two. Plus I mentioned before that by not going he gives the impression that William has “won”, and he’s not going to play that game. He’s only there now because of the quarantine protocols — if things were normal I’d bet he wouldn’t go sooner than 24-48 hrs before, do the damn thing and then leave the next day. Now I guess we have to get through the next week of hysteria over whether Kate will or won’t go. God help us all.

    • Lexistential says:

      I was all for Harry not going, but I hadn’t thought of William gloating over getting an upper hand. F*ck letting PWT flex that. I’m glad Harry is showing up in honor of his mother and the artist who made the statue, but man, I get anxious on his behalf. The BRF, courtiers, and BM make up such a toxic snake pit, and every time he sets foot on that Crusty Island, I freak out a little. (I know Harry has security, but I still get edgy.)

  8. Kfg says:

    I hope he went to light them up. It would be great if he made a speech about how horrible his brother and father are. Like just blow it up after what they did to Lilli. So keen won’t be going and hopefully Harry kicks PWBT a%^.

  9. Lauren says:

    I follow a Twitch streamer and she was talking about a trip she has to take to the UK in a couple of weeks and said that she has to take a test at arrival and if she tests again negative halfway through the quarantine then she is good to go out of it, so I imagine something along those lines for Harry and that he really will be in and out of the UK.

  10. Jais says:

    I just wana know who is us weeklys insider source. Vanity fair literally cited us weekly in an article about this. Like I really thought the source was made-up. Do like that they refer to Harry as the former military pilot though lol.

  11. Noki says:

    So its quite possible to go in and out of LAX almost undetected when you are a celebrity. Those papparazzi scrums always make me sick,the last thing anyone needs after a ten hour flight.

    • Snuffles says:

      Yes, you can pay for a VIP entrance and exit. I know this because BTS uses this after their arrivals got too chaotic and dangerous because the fans were going bananas.

    • taris says:

      the tabloids are constantly thirsting over harry. it’s so obvious. after the funeral, the fail literally had someone in his neighbourhood taking photos of his car when he got back to cali.

      and they keep saying noone cares about the sussexes anymore. 🙄🤭

    • Lauren says:

      LAX has a second airport (literally separate building and all) for the rich and famous that pay an extra fee for the service. They take care of handling your check-in and stuff while you chill at a lounge and then take you via private car to your plane.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        People actually can have their OWN suites to lounge in, away from other VIPs. It’s expensive, but for them, the $$$$ isn’t a factor.

  12. Scorpion says:

    I’m living for the fakakta statue unveiling…. I’m over it already, I bet Harry is over it.

  13. MaryContrary says:

    Of course he was going to go. It is for his mother, it’s been in the works forever, and why the hell should he be the one to skip? He made it through 2 tours of Afghanistan, and busted out of that toxic hellhole of a family-he’ll be fine. But he’ll spend the absolute bare minimum of time there and get back to his wife and babies.

  14. Amy Bee says:

    These next few days are going to be ridiculous. KP is probably going to be briefing the entire weekend. KP says only Harry, William, the sculptor and the head gardener are going to be present at the unveiling. I was kind of looking for to seeing Kate’s antics but I guess William didn’t want her overshadowing the event like she did at the Philip’s funeral.

    • MsIam says:

      Really? Wow Diana’s sisters won’t be there? Or maybe they didn’t want to be tied to the Harry/William shit show.

      • Sofia says:

        According to the statement KP put out, close members of Diana’s family will be there and I’m assuming it means her sisters and brother.

      • Ginger says:

        I think her sisters and brother will be there. I guess there is a bigger event in September. This one is small. It looks like Kate won’t even be there. I figure Kate and Meghan will go to the one in September. This is just a small Spencer event. Not a royal event. I’m looking forward to Harry’s speech. He will blow it out of the water I’m sure.

      • North of Boston says:

        I guess there is a bigger event in September.

        Oh, man. I’d hoped this was it, one and done.

        What’s it going to be, an event in the UK every 90 days so that the RR and BM don’t run out of fresh PH photos?

      • swirlmamad says:

        They are literally pulling events out of their asses just so they can get Harry to come so they can have fresh material.

    • Cessily says:

      Bet PW is demanding a copy of his speech beforehand.. I know Prince Harry will not dishonor his mother with nastiness but PW has no moral compass.. I imagine Prince Harry will include statements to the facts that Princess Diana’s life was cut short by the greed of the tabloids and paparazzi frenzy, as that was a very real aspect of the life that Princess Diana was forced to live with that ultimately was responsible for her death.

      • Jais says:

        PW is demanding a copy of the speech beforehand? Do u remember where you read this? Lol that’s interesting. Does William need inspiration for his speech? You know he wished he had seen Harry’s tribute to Prince Phillip before he wrote his.
        Imagine Harry will memorize his speech on the flight over and if he chooses to practice a few off the cuff remarks to add in…what can wee Willy do really.
        Don’t think he will actually go off but some subtle shade wouldn’t be too offside.

      • Eurydice says:

        I imagine Harry’s speech will be like his comment about Diana when the BBC admitted how they falsified bank records. Harry was positive and loving about his mother. He was a sharp contrast to William just by being himself.

      • By what right can William demand a copy of his brother’s speech. William is not in charge of Harry. Harry is no longer a working royal. He is a private citizen honoring his mother. What is William going to do…cut Harry’s Mike off? I hope Harry shuts that request down with his death stare and total silence!

      • Dee says:

        If I were Haryy, I’d leak a fake speech ahead of time by providing a copy to Will.

      • Becks1 says:

        People lol Cessily said “bet PW is demanding a copy” – not that he actually is.

      • BnlurNforever says:

        @Jais, I think she said BET meaning it’s her opinion, not that this has happened. Hopefully that won’t be the case because if it is that’s taking control to another level.

      • Jais says:

        Oh my goodness. Missed the “bet” and almost started another truther conspiracy! Well, I “bet” prince William would like to demand such a thing but let it be known that I misinterpreted cessily by reading too quickly😂

        Oh my, this is the new “Kate jars her own honey” — it was never actually reported, but generated outrage nonetheless.

      • Lady D says:

        @Jais, “Missed the “bet” and almost started another truther conspiracy!” We have a Ranger to handle truther conspiracies now. It wouldn’t have gone far.

    • Really? I’m betting, Amy Bee — that the 🐀Rota will be there in force shouting nasty questions at Harry as the event ends and he walks away.

      • Lady D says:

        I’m expecting the RR’s and Kate plus children, dressed in their best cosplay, to show at this event. It will be William showing Harry who’s boss and who gets to give the orders. I honestly think Willie would be that stupid.

        Yes, the stories are being written right now. Kate will be getting texts from Harry. She will be sending over jars of honey for his scones. Maybe another batch of photoshopped cards for him to give to Baby Lili from the Cambridge kids.

      • MaryContrary says:

        I don’t believe for one hot second that she won’t be there. Harry has always appeared close to his mother’s family. William will want some one from his “team” to be close by.

      • Sofia says:

        @MaryContrary She wasn’t mentioned in the statement KP released. It just said, William, Harry, close family of Diana, members of the statue committee, the statue creator and the gardener would be going.

        Her presence might be something that’s obvious hence why she wasn’t mentioned hence why I said “apparently”. But I do think they would have mentioned Kate anyways.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Sofia that is interesting. I think if she were attending they would have said so.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Watch her show up in a black felt fascinator with black netting, in her best offensive Diana cosplay.

      • swirlmamad says:

        With all the fuss and to-do, if she was definitely on the list of attendees she absolutely would have been mentioned amongst that list. I mean, why on earth would they make a point to say the gardener is going but not Kate if she was?

      • L84Tea says:

        @Nota, I’m picturing her in overalls, boots, hair pulled up under a cap and a fake mustache glued to her upper lip as she hangs in the back with clippers trimming the hedges, craning to get a view of what’s going on. :-D

  16. Becks1 says:

    Ha, I love that he really is just going for the unveiling and then he’s back on a plane. His flight is probably for that same day. He’s not leaving his family for any longer than he has to.

    I know some people wish he hadn’t gone, but I kind of like that he did. She’s his mother too, this is something important to him – and he’s sending a very clear signal that he’s not going to let William or the British press dictate what he does anymore. If he wants to go back to the UK, he’s going to go back.

    • Eurydice says:

      I’m just looking at this from my point of view, but I would want to control the Diana narrative as much as possible. Will already threw her under the bus as paranoid and delusional and he’s said Harry is damaged goods (like his mother). A personal appearance that is calm, dignified and loving presents who he is much better than a video message.

      • Harper says:

        Harry knows he had to go to represent his mother. We already know that Will’s speech will be all about himself and his kids and maybe Kate. Harry has to be there to talk about the real Diana, loving mother, public and private woman.

    • swirlmamad says:

      I’m here for it too, and I agree that part of this is about not letting William have the upper hand, whether perceived or actual. Harry has just as much right to Diana’s legacy as TOB does, and W has proven that he is the type if you give him an inch, he’ll take 10 miles.

      • Ginger says:

        Agreed. Harry has every right to be there. He saw this statue project from the beginning and deserves to be there. He can’t help that William is his brother. Harry will be cordial because he is an adult and this event is about honoring his mom. A mom that was there for him last year (when his father took away his security and cut him off financially)

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Becks1, ITA. I think at this point Harry will do what he wants to do. He’s not going to let the brf, BM or RRs dictate what his actions are. If he does, they get what the want. The more we see of Harry the more I understand what honor means to him. I have huge respect for him. Of course he’ll be there for the statute unveiling. Diana was far from perfect, but she really tried to give her sons as “normal” of an upbringing that she could under the circumstances. I think she would be really proud of herself if she had lived–with cause. Harry learned a lot from her.

      I find it hilarious that Baldimort has to get out of England while Harry is in quarantine. He doesn’t want anyone to think a reconciliation is possible. If I were Duchess Keen Kant I wouldn’t put out embiggening articles about peacekeeping (when she’s not being revolutionary) during this event or leading up it. I kind of think Baldimort isn’t the only one tired of those. Also, by going to Scotland it keeps TQ away from Harry. Isn’t that interesting?

  17. Louisa says:

    The US is considered an “amber” country which means anyone coming into the UK from there has to quarantine for 10 days or take a test after 5 days and if negative you can be released from the rest of the quarantine. I assume that is what harry is going to do. I would hope so at least. As someone in NY who hasn’t seen my mum in Scotland for 23 months I’m really sick of seeing celebrities flying in and out of the country with no regards to the rules. And no push back from authorities.

    • Merricat says:

      Harry is vaccinated and following travel protocols.

    • Cessily says:

      I hope you get to see your mother soon.. I am waiting to see loved ones in Europe so I get the frustration.

    • Maria says:

      I mean, I haven’t seen my partner in 20 months in another country and I get the frustration but Harry flying in and out observing protocol (after substantial work in vaccine signup and distribution, which makes a difference to me personally) is not the Kardashians taking 30 people to an island birthday party etc.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Louisa, I’m sorry that it’s been so long since you were able to get home to see family. If the experts are right, it looks like cases, hospitalization and deaths will go up this Fall. You must be feeling like you’ll never there from here. I’ll send positive thoughts and prayers.

      I agree that people ignoring the quarantine rules are beyond contempt. They are also the ones helping to spread these variants to other countries. Harry and Meghan have always shown they are doing what they’re supposed to do including wearing masks when they volunteer. Too bad there are so many people who refuse to think of anyone but themselves.

  18. Guest says:

    Too bad he’s even going. He can honor his mother in other ways. Look at the bs the royal press has done leading up to this. Meghan is the one getting ripped apart…again. I feel like harry gives them the ammo they need. Look at the new bs they are going to do something for diana again in September. The goal posts are always moved. Meghan definitely had the right idea to cut her toxic family out of her life. Hopefully one day her husband can accomplish the same thing.

    • Merricat says:

      Meghan supports Harry’s decision.

    • Maria says:

      Harry is not “giving them the ammo they need”. They are going to insult him and his wife regardless. He will be in and out discreetly, it’s his right to do whatever he wants with the memory of his mother.
      The goal posts are always moving indeed. But blaming Harry for this is not fair or true.

    • ABritGuest says:

      So guess some posters here were right about perhaps articles around Kate attending the unveiling being a campaign to attend. KP have given details of the event & doesn’t sound like Kate is going.

      The palaces will be briefing like crazy but this event isn’t about the royal family. And not going to event that was part of a long standing commitment honouring Diana only because of press & palace messiness would be allowing them to dictate his life. If he feels safe to do so & those closest to him support him then hopefully it’s worth it to him.

      As for the press, Meghan would have been criticised if he hadn’t attended, will be criticised with him being there& when he returns to US seeing as some are convinced he’s her hostage& would be part of the trio still if she wasn’t there. She has been set up as the villain & to be wrong on any occasion. There’s not much to do if the press are set on this narrative. I agree one way he can protect his lil family though is avoiding the royal family events eg Christmas at Sandringham. Meghan will still be blamed but least she won’t be required to do emotional labour around those that wish her harm.

      I love some of the ideas that posters had about other ways to honour Diana though & hope he can still do that.

      • Tessa says:

        I find William and Charles to be to blame for this, and Charles just let William cause the destruction of ousting Harry. There are so many bots out there who call Meghan names and blame her, it is sickening.

      • Kfg says:

        Again, after Kate screwed up the round table with Dr. Biden, and the keen walk for big change got her Twitter dragged, I think Will is getting the public used to not seeing keeny Kate.

      • Nivz says:

        I like the idea from a poster above about a Sussex video tribute for Diana’s bday. But not for the statue, on the archewell website instead. And the kids- maybe no kids in the video. I will gladly forgo seeing Archie and Lili if it means trolls keep their names out of their mouths.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Again. We are outsiders looking in and going off of the information we are given. While we can decipher and make educated guesses, we are not in any way, shape or form getting the full and true story. Harry is doing what HE feels is right for HIMSELF and HIS family. True Sussex fans will support him either way. He’s dealt with enough conditional “love” from the RF his entire life. It’s not up to us to judge him.

      • North of Boston says:

        Exactly!

        People are entitled to their opinions about his public actions, causes, etc. (yes, even True Sussex Fans are entitled to not support some of his choices on that front)

        But this a grown man who has made a decision to attend a family event at a family home in honor of his mother. His life, his family … and therefore HIS choice. It’s no skin off the rest of our noses what he does on that front.

    • Tessa says:

      I always felt the event should have been postponed and I wanted Meghan to go with Harry. Just to send a message that she is his wife and she is part of the family.

      • swirlmamad says:

        Unfortunately, William was never going to accommodate that, so Harry’s doing the best he can in the situation.

      • Carmen-JamRock says:

        @swirlmamad
        I dont understand why some folks believe that bullyiam is calling the shots for this event concerning their mother that involve the two brothers AS EQUALS!

        I strongly believe that the decisions concerning this event have 100% input from both men and then they come to a 50% compromise.

        For example, for all we know, it was H who put his foot down and said, because my wife and children will not be there thru no fault of our own, then your wife & kids cant be there. Bearing in mind that the last time the brothers hosted an event concerning their mom was in 2017 IIRC, when H & M were not yet engaged and even tho M had flown in from Canada to support H, her attendance was nixed by big bad bullyiam because she was merely a girlfriend, not even yet a fiance, nevermind that at a previous similar event, H’s then girlfriend (Cressida?) was allowed to attend.

        Do not make the mistake of underestimating how involved and how much of a decision-maker H has been for this event.

      • Tessa says:

        Chelsy attended the Diana Concert and sat next to Harry. I never thought Harry was as serious about Cressida as he was with Chelsy.

    • Jaded says:

      @Guest – we all know that Harry and Meghan are damned if they do and damned if they don’t. He’d be ripped apart for not going — Meghan would be blamed for forcing Harry to not go or Harry’s too selfish to honour his mother’s legacy or some such drivel. This is his mother and her loss has affected both brothers deeply and traumatically. At least Harry had the cojones to get some therapy to deal with his emotional problems — too bad PWT hasn’t — and he has the strength and dignity to show up, honour her legacy, then get the hell outta Dodge.

    • Ginger says:

      You can’t compare Thomas ( a dead beat dad that Meghan has always had issues with) to the royal family. You just can’t. They are not the same thing. Meghan cut her dad off and he is still running to the press causing her pain. Harry doesn’t speak with his brother and father and they still cause pain. Harry knows this situation better than we do. He would never put himself or his family in danger. I trust every decision he makes. Cutting the RF off isn’t going to make things better. The press will still go after them.

    • bamaborn says:

      Totally get your point, Guest. Sometimes when things are really toxic, it’s best to just step back for a moment, concentrate on your beautiful family and continue to honor your mother your way. As a side note, always enjoyed contributing to their charities and causes, but, decided to take a step back with their decision to pay homage to a woman I find utterly useless. No reflection on anyone else, just a personal stance.

  19. My3cents says:

    I just hope the little lynchpin that could will not strike again, making this day about her the peacemaker.

  20. Teresa holmes says:

    Diana’s sister are confirmed to be there.

  21. Curious says:

    guess Harry will attend this about his mother statue, then they might not agree to attend the queen jubilee ,so they can be mocked an laugh at by the press and his family. they will be there when the queen dies. then that’s it , he won’t have to attend anything else,unless Charles want Harry and his family there when he is crown king.

  22. Trix says:

    Sometimes you do what you’re “supposed to do” to make a point.

    I was estranged from my immediate family for quite a few years. I still went and visited extended family. I didn’t hide I was coming. Once I even went to my mother’s house to surprise visit my grandmothers house I remained close with, which was eased by her having a somewhat separate space.

    During that visit, my parents were home and considering how the property was set up, they saw me park and walk to the back of the property since she had a separate entrance. My brother made a point to walk by the window, to see what I was doing even though there was no real reason for it. Although he didn’t look in. It was a farce.

    During that visit my grandmother begged me to go in the main house to talk to my mother. It was one of the hardest conversations I ever had to tell her she needed to stay out of it. I had just flown cross country and was in their house. And yet I still was expected to do more.

    They also all knew I was coming for that visit because my visit was discussed by the entire family at a party a day before I arrived.

    I made it very easy for them. What so many people didn’t know is I had already begged my mother and father privately to speak to me at different points and there was nothing but silence. But they cried to mutual family they didn’t know what to do.

    My mother and I didn’t start speaking again until my grandmother was dying. It’s been fraught and now we are in an uneasy space for both of us. I actually wish I never attempted any type of reconciliation. Because nothing has really changed. Just the extended family is happy we are working on it.

    So yeah. I hope Harry & Meghan never go back. Do what you feel you’re supposed to do so you can look in the mirror, but that’s it.

    • Likeyoucare says:

      Dear Harry,
      This is my suggestions to you that will make willie blow his head off. Just 4 words and nothing else.
      ” i believe my mother.”

  23. lucylee says:

    I wish he had stayed in Cali, but I understand why he is going. I pray the BM will let Diana RIP after 25 years of pulling out pictures of her whenever it is a slow news cycle. Harry probably needs to do this for his own mental wellbeing. I wish him well on this journey. I’m not a therapist, but it seems that Harry has done a lot of work to understand what happened to him and is learning to accept the reality of who his family is and what the firm is all about. He needs our prayers and a gift certificate for a lifetime supply of Snake Away.

    • Curious says:

      Diana name is never going to rest in peace. the statue is going to be tourist attraction.so forever people will be visiting The garden of Diana with her statue,taking pics. and will always be talked about.

    • Tessa says:

      Diana will always be a presence one way or another. She never could be airbrushed.

  24. Red Weatger Tiger says:

    Don’t know about you all, but I find myself using the word “fakakta” all the time now. And if I see the phrase “statue unveling” WITHOUT the word “fakakta” in front of it, I add it mentally.

    • Philly says:

      I don’t get it, what does it mean?

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      haha@RWT, it’s not the Diana statue, it’s the fakakta statue.

      @Philly-fakakta or verkakte-bad idea, silly, ridiculous, crappy,…

  25. Tessa says:

    I think it should have been postponed to a time when Harry and Meghan could both go. I just don’t like the idea of bots talking about how much “happier” Harry looks with his brother and sister in law. It is just revolting.

    • Jegede says:

      I’m the opposite.

      I don’t want Meghan to be in any airspace around William and Kate. Ever.

      Especially after the latest volley of abuse the Cambridges have lobbed against her, nor for there to be an opportunity for them to very publicly snub her again.

  26. BnlurNforever says:

    Here we go again. I am just going to keep my thoughts to myself on this one because the UK media will do enough scalping of HnM, especially M, so…

  27. WintryMix says:

    I admit that I’ve been hoping Harry wouldn’t go back at all. Because I feel like the BRF functions like a cult, and that the people raised into it incur serious psychological damage as a result, I would love to see Harry eventually cut all ties and go completely no contact because I believe that’s what would best support his own healing. What I have to remember is that all of that is just based on what I can see from the outside, and things may be different from Harry’s view. Or, he may simply not yet be ready to cut them out of his life completely. Either way I have to respect that he’s doing what seems best to him right now. I hope that flying into London was a manageable experience for him and that he gets out of this trip exactly what he needs. (And that all the rest of them go f*ck themselves.)

  28. Beatriz Somma Campos says:

    He’s a brave man. I wish him luck!

  29. NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

    It wouldn’t take much for these people to lock the door from the other side and keep him in the UK. I worry they’ll turn Frogmore into a prison until he agrees to divorce Meghan and abandon his kids. It seems a silly fear but we all know they are capable of it.

    • Jaded says:

      Well…this is 2021, not 1521, so I doubt very much that’s going to happen. The BRF can be mean, spiteful and childish but forcing him into a divorce by locking him away isn’t within the realm of possibility.

      • NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

        It wouldn’t be framed that way. There would be a shady and suspicious act or an “illness” that prevented him from going home. But I think as long as he has independent security, he’ll be fine.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        NotSoSimpleTaylor, I agree that they could frame it as an illness, but they wouldn’t be able to do that for very long. He has a wife, who would legally be allowed to see him–and make decisions about his health care. Even if the brf tries to keep her out, she has some very good attorneys. Also, he knows a LOT of people worldwide. I have a feeling if Meghan asked for help, there would be more than enough people to ask to see Harry. And they would be very vocal. If the brf, and specifically the grey men, are really that incredibly stupid and incompetent to do something like that it would end up probably end up destroying the monarchy. I’m not pretending that it would all happen immediately. They might be able to hold off people for a little bit of time. But, if they think to brainwash him into returning? Nope.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      Then he needs to go to the American Embassy and tell them his wife and children are citizens and he’s being held against his will. Biden will send the SEALS in for Harry. My family has a safe word and hopefully so do the Sussexes and if Harry utters it on a call to Meghan then she calls Joe and Jill.

      • lisanne says:

        As an American I can assure you, Biden is not sending in the Navy SEALS, or any other military force, to “rescue” Harry. For one thing, Harry is not a US citizen. The UK and US have close relations, and this is just not something our government would think of doing. That said, I can’t believe that he would held in the UK against his will. Whatever for? If he’s such a pain to the monarchy, why would they not let him go??

    • Lizzie says:

      If they wanted him in the UK they would act like it. They like him just fine where he is and being thrown under the bus daily and taking all the heat for the family.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Back when Harry was going to Philip’s funeral, I made a comment that Harry would be okay-they weren’t going to ‘Man in the Iron Mask’ him. Same holds true. Odds are very good he has security/armed forces people with him and/or doing surveilance that have nothing to do with the BRF and he has complete trust in-he probably has earned greater regard with Armed Forces (American ones too) than other members of the BRF. He won’t be locked in. If it gives anyone any further comfort, don’t forget, there were 71/72 members of Parliament that spoke/signed out against the mistreatment of Meghan in the press. No one should believe that Harry isn’t being carefully watched and looked after-in his best interest.

  30. Athena says:

    Someone mentioned questions being shouted at Harry. The UK media when on and on about the American reporter shouting a question at Kate about baby Lili, how it’s not the thing here, breaking protocol, blah blah blah, forgetting that Emily Andrews shouted a question at Harry, or the question asked of Charles after the Oprah interview and the best, the set up question leading to the we are so not a racist family answer.
    It feels like there a parallel universe, one in which everyone lives in and one on which the BRF and their media and supporters reside in.

  31. Plums says:

    eh, I didn’t think he would go and wished he wouldn’t, but hearing he’s gonna visit his grandmother and otherwise just chilling at Frogmore, hanging out with Eugenie’s family if they’re still there, I’m not gonna grumble about it. They’re who he’s closest to in his family and it’s nice to take the opportunity to see them. Especially his elderly grandmother whom he adores, despite all of our reservations about her due to her abject failure as the family matriarch.

    • Wendy says:

      We really don’t know what he is going to do or not do – or where he is going to stay – this is all just speculative noise.

  32. Dee says:

    Good King Harry will handle it in an exceptional way. He always does.

  33. Curious says:

    these are scary people. or maybe it just me that watch too many crime shows. I hope Harry don’t eat or drink anything from anyone but what his bodyguard is holding for him. never know with these people. never knows if he eats something they serve him to make him sick so he have to stay. they want harry back home without his wife and children, so god knows what they might do.look what they doing now. they blasting Harry and his family every day for yrs and not 1 royal stands up for him in public.not a single one.but they still don’t want him to be with Meghan. god knows they seem to have the mindset of rather Harry dies than be with Meghan and his children, same they wished on Diana.

  34. Sof says:

    I wish he would do a photoshoot with Prince Louis, you know, the spares who apparently don’t matter, just to troll media and the poisonous palace aides. It won’t happen, but it would be funny to read everyone losing their minds.

    • Nivz says:

      I wonder, who would be Harry among the Cambridge kids. Charlotte or Louis? Charlotte is closer in age, but also the only girl, so the comparisons to PG aren’t always obvious, and she might get special treatment. Louis is a brother, but much younger.

      At least Harry’s kids won’t be their Harry.

  35. Carmen-JamRock says:

    You know how it is when you leave home for a new country or new part of your own country for a new job posting or an internship or a 3-month or 6-month or one-year course of study. And a week into your new posting it hits you that youre not there for a 2-wk vacation and then return home…….youre gonna be away for a while. And then home-sickness hits you.

    And then a month or two later youre settled in your new place, liking the new people youre meeting and new experiences youre having. And then before you know it, its time to return home. And while youre sad to leave the new place, the draw of home is strong.

    I say all that to say this: it pleases me and my ancestors to no end! that for H, California is home. And england, that place where he grew up and SHOULD hv nostalgia for, is merely the place that, as he said with his own mouth, triggers him into fear and loathing.

    I bet he’s already home-sick.

  36. Reece says:

    This statue better be the best damn, most inspiring statue ever created in human history!

    • Wendy says:

      I am more interested in the statue than the manufactured drama surrounding it — it’s HARD to get a good likeness and we have had 20 years to canonize Diana in our minds — what if it is perfectly awful?
      Do you think they’ve seen it or is going to be a literal unveiling to all involved. There are just so many things that could go awry beyond the family drama.

  37. Chelsea says:

    I really cant get over the fact that The Fail apparently interviewed people on Harry’s plane ans no one they interviewed actually saw him but they still published quotes od people going “I adore Harry but i didnt see him on my flight :( ” and “i saw a guy in first class wearing sweatpants..when do you see a Prince in sweats?” LOL

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      No one in first class dresses like that. I have a specific classy long sleeved flowy top that I wear because I usually travel in a hoodie and when we started upgrading our flights I felt uncomfortable. I needed something classier for layering.

      • Kkat says:

      it’s like when 3rd graders make up swear words so they don’t get into trouble for using the real thing.

      • Jaded says:

        @Wendy – no. Fakakta is an old Yiddish word that means a person or thing that’s completely crazy, ridiculous or screwed up.

        @Jaded – That was a bit tongue in cheek since we do make up names to call people .

    • dawnchild says:

      It’s Yiddish for messed-up. There’s a bit of an ‘r’ sound before the first ‘k’ sound…like fa(r)kakte, almost like you’re hawking up something from your throat…

    • Bellaluna McKenzie says:

      Thank you for clearing that up. I always read it as an alternate for f-king so that makes sense.

      I can’t wait until this statue saga is over and he is back with Meghan and his babies, safe in the US.

  39. Amelia says:

    “Royal Correspondents have been denied access to the event with just one press association reporter allowed inside the grounds and a photographer and two camera operators.

      I didn’t want him to go to this thing because of the circus that it would be so I’m glad that he has completely neutralized the circus. No rota and no Keen, shutting both of their games down. Incredible power move by Harry. Now poor Camilla is having to write about how Saint Kate’s busy playing peacemaker behind the scenes. Pathetic, lol!

    • Becks1 says:

      Such a power move. Go Harry!

    • Nic919 says:

      I read this and realized why Harry agreed to attend. And clearly they wanted him there if they were prepared to kick out the rota.

      Now part of me wonders if that is also why this event only has the brothers and the Spencers. Maybe Harry also stipulated that there would be no spouses since Meghan couldn’t travel.

      Huh, Harry has power, but not that much power. I wonder if the Queen and/or Charles put their foot down, too. Leaks from Will and Camp Kate, the Lacey excerpts, they’re turning around to bite the Future Futures, instead of Harry.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Go ‘head, Harry! Got ‘em!!

  40. JRenee says:

    Stay safe harry. You out class the clowns who try to make you a scapegoat. You’ve grown into quite a guy! I hope this statue/park dedication helps with your memories of your mom.

  41. BooyahB!tches says:

    You won’t read this in the snipey trashy tabloids in Salty Island:

    “Queen visits Harry after UK homecoming: The Queen drove straight to Frogmore Cottage to visit Prince Harry just 30 minutes after he arrived at his former home ahead of a statue unveiling of his late mother.”

    That is from the Herald, which is not a tabloid but a respected Scottish newspaper.

    • Marivic says:

      Thank God the Herald is not corrupt. 👍🏻

    • Curious says:

      guess this her only time to see him, her tour to Scotland starts on the 28th. and Harry will be leaving maybe on the 1st july after the ceremony. its amazing how she is still driving.after all those silly stories that she might be hard of hearing and such and did not know she was consenting to give her great granddaughter her name. the press was suggesting she might be impaired in some way . and here is the queen driving her own car .

    • Nina says:

      Good for her. Just a gran visiting her grandkid. BM rats’ lies exposed again.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Wait, that really happened? Wow. Really says something about their relationship (and the current state of it) that the Queen didn’t even wait a day to go and see Harry. Throws a whole LOTTA cold water on the RR’s whole “she’s pissed and ready to disown him” narrative, eh?

      ETA: AWWWW dang — guess it IS true! Just read it on Hello’s website. Suck on that, rota rats!!!

    • Eurydice says:

      Wow, that’s one way to take charge of the narrative and deflate the drama.

  42. Kit says:

    Just been confirmed Kate isn’t invited !

    • Ania says:

      Yes, the petty b* I am I love it! Seems like nobody liked the funeral spectacle and wanted a repeat. Another game of thrones in the air?

    • Nyro says:

      No Keen and no royal rota. We love to see it.

    • Becks1 says:

      I wonder if that was Harry’s call or William’s – “Meg isn’t going to be there, let’s keep this just us, no other royals” or if William was like “nah You’re staying home.”

      Maybe she’ll go out that night in an off the shoulder cocktail dress 😂

      You know she has to be ticked about it. It’s like being forced out of the Commonwealth procession.

      • Nic919 says:

        I suspect that since Meghan was unable to attend that Harry asked for this as well. Plus she’s a clear leak to the media because Tominey did put this out a few days ago.

      • Nyro says:

        I think it was William who told her to stay her ass at home. If she was sidelined by Harry’s request in order to not have Meghan left out, you can best believe she would have told Camilla that and we’d have seen article after article of how jealous Meghan got Kate removed from the ceremony. Instead, Camilla is actually trying to pretty things up like it’s no big deal and still trying to push the peacemaker angle. This was William all the way, imo. And that does not bode well for her. The fact that he doesn’t even care about her enough to use her as a weapon against Meghan at an event this big is telling. His pained looks and refusal to play along in Scotland, no Kate for Father’s Day, and now no statue revealing for her either. William is sick of Waity Katy, folks. And that does not bode well for her.

      • February-Pisces says:

        I think harry doesn’t want kate there, so that was probably one of the conditions for him attending. But as we know they don’t give af about what harry wants, so I firmly believe this is williams call.

        Willie doesn’t want her there, harry doesn’t either, but Kate desperately wants to be there, so she can be the linchpin of the monarchy. Given that she tried to make Phillips funeral all about herself, he probably doesn’t want her using this to embiggen herself. Didn’t Willie shout at kate after the funeral? They fact she had to publicly campaign to attend is desperate.

        Poor Kate, I bet she is gutted about not seeing harry so she can make eyes at him.

      • swirlmamad says:

        I am positive it was William’s call, though I’m sure Harry is relieved to not have to deal with Kate and her antics either. If Harry was the one insisting that Kate should not come, Dan Wooton and his ilk would’ve been blaring from the castle tops about psycho Harry’s demands, and how dare he try to freeze out Kate as she’s William’s only form of support, etc. Seriously. If he wanted his wife there, do you really think William would let that go and not leak like a sieve about it? No. This was ENTIRELY William’s doing, even though I would also agree that Harry is absolutely cool with that decision.

        ETA: @Nyro and I think pretty much alike on this, lol.

      • notasugarhere says:

        If William is planning on sidelining Kate permanently? He may not want pics of her attending this solemn event, one he plans to use for his own PR for years to come.

      • Lorelei says:

        If we all look closely, we might be able to see Kate stationed at one of the windows in KP with binoculars

  43. Feeshalori says:

    The gifts just keep on coming.

  44. Curious says:

    guess after Prince Phillip funeral .Harry saw how the press headlines was calling her a peacemaker and so on.and he got fed up with that crap. so this time maybe both William and Harry don’t want Catherine there ,they don’t want her staging anything for headlines about how great she is ,taking away the focus of what is important and that is him honoring his mother by unveiling her statue. William already insulted his deceased mother by saying she was paranoid/delusional.so for William this is just a show.whatever he says about his mother,i for one will not believe a word of it .

  45. Keri says:

    Hahahaha! So both the Royal Rota rats and keen Karen are barred from the unveiling. Have a feeling this was one of Harry’s conditions for going but I will admit to a teeny tiny bit of respect for Willie boy for agreeing if this is what happened.

    And if there are any further doubts that Kate is Camel Toe’s leak/source, the fact that she broke the news that Keen was not invited is proof. These people, it’s like they are desperate to prove every single thing Meghan and Harry claimed in the Oprah interview is true.

    • Jais says:

      Hmm pretty sure that’s the Camilla Tominey article. Gross that it’s in NZ and I’m gonna avoid linking to it cuz I don’t wana give her clicks. Sorry NZ that you got this in your papers!

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Murdoch owns a percentage of the NZ Herald. Shocking (not) that CT’s article would appear.

    • Feeshalori says:

      Unfortunately I did and that’s seven minutes wasted that I won’t get back in my life.

  46. Tangerinetree says:

    I am so glad Harry is there to honor his wonderful mother. No one there can hurt him. Harry is the adult in his family, and they know it. He stands by his word and says what he wants to while showing his face. He is in command of himself.

  47. Nancy says:

    I keep thinking about all the OUTRAGE from the Brits over Frogmore when it came to Harry and Meghan and how now they are completely silent about Eugenie/Jack living off the taxypayers for FREE. It really highlights that the OUTRAGE is FAKE.

  48. princessk says:

    Grapevine has it that Harry is not at Frogmore but at Nottingham Cottage so he can just walk over to the unveiling.

  49. Likeyoucare says:

    The courtiers need to confisticate queen car key and passport quick.
    Within 30 minutes harry arrive, she made a get away car to visit him.
    Who knows she might had a plan to stay with harry at montecito

    • Curious says:

      lol. no pics of her returning.who knows maybe she spend hours chatting with her granddaughter and Harry, talking to each other with plexiglass between them.
