Harry, 36, jetted in on his own on Sunday ahead of his grandfather's funeral at St George's Chapel in Windsor this Saturday.

This week will be the first time Harry has seen the rest of the royal family in person since last month's incendiary Oprah Winfrey interview.

A source close to Meghan told E! News: "Meghan wishes she could have flown to the U.K. to support her husband but has been advised not to due to her pregnancy.

"She would have put all the family tension aside to be there with Harry".

It comes as..

But the insider claimed that the Sussexes "are still not on amazing terms with the family."

The source added: "Harry wants to make sure Meghan and the baby are healthy and not involved in stressful situations.

"They have been focused on their new roots in Montecito and the pregnancy."

Meanwhile, the Queen has ordered no royals can wear military uniform for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, The Sun revealed today.

There was also said to be “serious Navy displeasure” at being dragged into a row over Prince Andrew possibly wearing an admiral’s uniform.

Insiders involved in planning for Saturday’s funeral claim the Queen personally stepped in to suggest all senior male royals wear suits and ties.

The Duke of Sussex faced being the only senior male in the royal family wearing civilian clothing after losing his honorary ranks.

A military source told The Sun: “It’s the most eloquent solution to the problem.”

Harry, 36, was stripped of his three military titles when he quit royal duty with wife Meghan.

Royal protocol now means the Duke — who did two tours of Afghanistan with the Blues and Royals — can only wear a suit with medals at royal functions.

Harry made the 5,400-mile journey back to the UK on Sunday to make sure he could attend his grandad Philip’s funeral.

The Duke of Sussex was seen getting off a British Airways flight from Los Angeles that arrived at Heathrow at 1.15pm.

Sources had earlier confirmed he was due back imminently to quarantine in time for the Duke of Edinburgh’s farewell at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, on Saturday.

Harry, sixth in line to the throne, was at his £11million Montecito mansion in California when he was told the news of Prince Philip’s death on Friday morning.

It's the first time Harry has been in the UK since last March — and comes as the Royal Family ordered a truce over the contents of his explosive Oprah Winfrey interview to focus on honouring Prince Philip.

This week, Harry paid tribute to his "witty" grandfather Philip - remembering the duke as the "master of the barbecue and legend of banter".

Harry said the Duke of Edinburgh was "cheeky 'til the end".

The Duke of Sussex, who is currently staying at Frogmore Cottage, said his grandfather had been "authentically himself" throughout his more than 70 years of service to the nation.

Prince Harry will have a 'deeply emotional reunion' with the Queen after returning to the UK for Prince Philip's funeral
