Less than an hour after Prince Harry arrived at Frogmore Cottage in the United Kingdom this week, his 95 year-old grandmother Queen Elizabeth was spotted behind the wheel driving there for a confrontation with him.
The Express reported that Harry flew to the U.K. from Los Angeles, California on Thursday so that he could attend the unveiling of a statue dedicated to his mother, the late Princess Diana, this week. The Queen is believed to be eager to speak with Harry and act as a “peacemaker” after he attacked the royal family repeatedly in interviews.
“It is quite something. No sooner had Harry been driven from Heathrow to Frogmore Cottage the Queen was on her way down,” said one source. “I’m sure they would have plenty to talk about. The Queen would obviously want to see her grandson after everything that has gone on and could take this opportunity to act as the peacemaker.”
Harry landed at Heathrow’s Terminal Five at 12.38pm on a Boeing 777-323 on American Airlines flight AA134. He then began a five day quarantine so that he could be cleared to attend his event this week. Harry and his brother Prince William will be attending the event alongside “close family of Diana, Princess of Wales, members of the statue committee, the sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, and garden designer Pip Morrison,” according to Kensington Palace.
Royal expert Ingrid Seward spoke out to say that Sophie Wessex, the wife of the Queen’s youngest son Prince Edward, will also be trying to help the brothers make peace.
“The Queen is very canny. And she has always been very fond of Sophie,” Seward said. “Prince Philip adored Sophie, and the Queen feels that now is the moment to push her, just gently. ‘Give some interviews, do some stuff. You work very hard, no one takes any notice. Get out there.’ I can see her saying that.”
Meghan Markle did not fly to the U.K. for this event because she just gave birth to her daughter Lilibet earlier this month. Royal author Andrew Morton spoke out this week to say that he believes Diana would have liked Meghan if she were alive today.
“There are endless stories about Meghan,” he said. “Diana would see a fellow spirit.”
