Prince Harry leaves quarantine to attend secret charity event as ‘surprise guest’
Prince Harry is attending a secret charity event today as a surprise guest.
The Duke of Sussex landed in London on Friday so that he can emerge from isolation 24 hours before the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue tomorrow and make an appearance at the party.
A source told The Sun: “The organizers moved heaven and earth to make this happen. It was carefully choreographed.”
The Queen withdrew royal sponsorships and honorary military titles from Prince Harry as part of the Megxit final deal in February.
But he and his wife Meghan Markle have kept their ties to charities private.
A spokesperson for the couple said at the time: “As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service in the UK and in the world.
“[They] offered their continued support to the organizations they represented, regardless of their official role. “
Yesterday Harry was seen in his first official appearance since arriving in the UK last week in a pre-recorded speech apparently filmed at his California mansion.
Her surprise contribution came during a virtual ceremony for the Diana Award, a charity that runs anti-bullying and mentoring programs for youth.
Harry told them that his mother would be proud of them “for living your authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others.”
He added: “She believed that young people have the power to change the world.”
Harry and his brother William will unveil a statue of Princess Di at Kensington Palace on Thursday – what would have been their mother’s 60th birthday.
The Duke of Sussex in isolation at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, while Meghan stayed in Los Angeles at their £ 11million Montecito home with her three-week-old daughter Lilibet and two-year-old son Archie.
Harry was reported to have met the Queen upon his return to London last week.
Her Majesty was seen walking towards Frogmore Cottage just minutes after her grandson was taken inside by security.
The Duke of Sussex is said to have met his grandmother on several occasions outside when he returned for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April, but this is the first time Harry has returned since he did blowing up the royal family on their mental health TV show, accusing them of “neglect”.
He criticized his father, Prince Charles, and claimed he had moved his family to the United States to “break the cycle of pain”.
Meanwhile, a green box has appeared to protect Princess Diana’s memorial statue ahead of its unveiling tomorrow.
The tribute is to be revealed at Kensington Gardens, behind his former home at Kensington Palace in London.
It is believed to have been installed in secret before being secured with a padlock.
