Prince Harry ‘reunited’ with Princess Eugenie ahead of Prince Philip funeral

Prince Harry has been reunited with Princess Eugenie ahead of Prince Philip's funeral, it is understood.

She is said to be the first member of the Royal Family to see the Duke of Sussex in person in more than a year following Megxit.

He is understood to be quarantining at his old UK residence Frogmore Cottage since returning to the UK for Prince Philip's funeral.

His cousin Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank are living at the listed cottage, Page Six claims.

Their report said: "Prince Harry reunited with his cousin Princess Eugenie after flying home to the UK for his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral."

It comes after Harry and his wife Meghan markle offered up the cottage when Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, discovered they were expecting.

The Sussexes lived in the cottage for less than six months before moving abroad.

Harry is currently quarantining after his flight from the US and is required to remain at Frogmore Cottage until Friday at the earliest.

He will be allowed to attend his grandfather’s funeral “on compassionate grounds” after five days rather than 10 if he provides a negative coronavirus test under the Government's “Test to Release” scheme.

Prince Harry may also have a first encounter with his cousin’s son, August, who was born in February, the Express reports.

Following the death of Prince Philip last Friday, Harry is believed to have spoken to his father Prince Charles and cousins Princess Beatrice and Eugenie.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “He said he wants to be with everyone and was already making arrangements to come home.”

Royal sources believe the funeral is an opportunity for Prince William and Harry to heal the rift between them.

The funeral of their grandfather will be the first time the brothers have seen each other face-to-face since the Commonwealth Service in March last year.
