Prince Harry's olive branch to Queen to 'check in on her' on Prince Philip's birthday


    Two months on from the death of her husband, Her Majesty is expected to mark the June 10th birthday in a sombre fashion. Brittani Barger, deputy editor of Royal Central, an American website focused on news about the monarchy, suggested the Queen could head to her beloved husband’s grave with some flowers on the “sad day”.

    The Duke of Edinburgh was interred at St George’s Chapel Royal Vault in Windsor Castle following his funeral.

    She told the Daily Star: “She may have dinner with some of her children as a way of honouring him. She may also privately visit his grave to lay flowers.”

    Touching on the possibility of family reconciliations, Ms Barger said it is unlikely the sombre birthday will bring about a full mending of the fractured bonds.

    Ms Barger continued: “I don’t know that Philip’s 100th will do anything to unite the family.

    “They will all mourn him in their own ways. With Harry being in the US, he may call his grandmother to check in on her as I’m sure he is worried about her marking the day as any grandson would be.”

    A year on from Megxit, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are continuing to distance themselves from the Royal Family.

    In their first interview since leaving the Firm, they told Oprah Winfrey that an unnamed member of the Royal Family had made racist comments about their son Archie.

    Meghan, 39, also suggested the reason her son was not given a royal title might have been because he is mixed-race.

    Instead, he made the round trip from California in April to attend the funeral of the Royal Family’s patriarch.

    The duke walked behind the casket alongside fellow royals incuding Prince William, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

    Following what was no doubt an awkward reunion for Harry, the duke is again expected to fly back to Britain in the coming weeks for a joint project with the Duke of Cambridge.

    William and Harry are on track to unveil a statue of their late mother the Princess of Wales at Kensington Palace on what would have been her 60th birthday.

    The event is scheduled for July 1.

    The monument was commissioned by the brothers in 2017 to mark the 20th anniversary of their mother’s death. It recognises her “positive impact”.

    At the time, the pair said in a statement: “Our mother touched so many lives.

    “We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy.

    The sculpture crafted by artist Ian Rank-Broadley will be displayed in the palace’s Sunken Garden.

    In the lead up to the occasion, Diana’s wedding dress went on display at Kensington Palace.

    The Princess of Wales wore the stunning gown to St Paul’s Cathedral for her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.
