Prince Harry ‘anxious to return to the US’ to be with pregnant Meghan Markle after Philip’s funeral

PRINCE Harry is reportedly anxious to return to the United States to be with his pregnant wife Meghan Markle after attending his grandfather Philip's funeral.

Harry, 36, flew back to the UK from the home he shares with Meghan, 39, and son Archie in California to attend the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral at Windsor on Saturday.

His return ticket has been left open, meaning he can go back to the US at any time.

However Harry is "anxious" to get back to America and Meghan, who is seven months pregnant, according to the Daily Mail.

He is considering staying in Britain for the Queen’s 95th birthday on Wednesday.

Meghan stayed in the US on doctor's orders while Harry made the 5,400-mile trip for the funeral.

She watched the service through a special live stream with Archie.

Harry and Meghan hand-selected the flowers for a tribute to Prince Philip and the duchess also left a handwritten note remembering the Duke of Edinburgh.


Meghan issued an official press release ahead of the funeral to announce she would be watching the ceremony from home.

The statement touched on the reasons for her notable absence, reading: "I can confirm that The Duchess will be watching from home as she was hopeful to be able to attend, but was not cleared for travel by her physician at this stage in her pregnancy," the Mail reports.

The statement went on to describe Harry and his late grandfather's relationship, and their "unique connection in their shared active service – including in combat – as part of the British Armed Forces".

It continued by listing Harry's achievement throughout his ten-year military career, touching on his two tours of Afghanistan.

But the announcement ruffled a few feathers in royal circles, who were displeased with the couple's PR - as the press release later mentioned the supplier of the wreath the couple had laid for Philip in St George's Chapel.

Details on the floral tributes from members of the Royal Family were not released, as they were "personal and private", Buckingham Palace said.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry was reunited with his father Charles and Prince William at the service - sparking hopes the long-running brotherly rift could be squashed.

Charles had private talks with his warring sons after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral — and insiders say it is just what Philip would have wanted.

The three met up away from the cameras following Saturday’s televised service.

They remained together for two hours at Windsor Castle as they mingled with family members on its Quadrangle.
