Prince Harry won't attend Prince Philip memorial
"Prince Harry will not be returning to the UK for the Service of Thanksgiving for the life of Prince Philip on March 29," said a spokesperson, as reported by Omid Scobie today. But the message added: "He does, however, hope to visit the Queen as soon as possible."
We don't know for sure why Prince Harry will miss the service, but he has been in conflict with the British government over security concerns for his family.
Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and their children have lived in California since 2020. Harry, who currently has a complicated relationship the royals, was last in the UK in July 2021 for the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue.
Before that, Harry attended the funeral of his grandfather Prince Philip in April. But he won't be joining his relatives at the memorial service later this month. The full guest list is not yet known.
