Duke of Sussex’s car is spotted heading to the airport

Harry flies home to Meghan: Duke of Sussex’s car is spotted leaving Frogmore Cottage and heading to the airport just a day after he unveiled Princess Diana statue with brother William

Prince Harry’s car was spotted leaving Windsor and heading to the airport just one day after he unveiled a statue of Princess Diana with his brother William.

A black 2019 Volkswagen Caravelle was driven from Frogmore Cottage and onto the tarmac at London’s Heathrow Airport.

The vehicle – which followed closely behind a police escort – formed part of a convoy which picked Prince Harry up when he landed a week ago today. 

He carried out his ‘amber list’ quarantine at his former Windsor home, before being released on day five after receiving a negative Covid test.

This means he had just two days out of quarantine in England before travelling back to California to reunite with Meghan and their children two-year-old Archie and newborn Lilibet. 

Yesterday, Harry reunited with William to unveil a statue of their beloved mother on what would have been her 60th birthday – before making a swift exit.

The brothers stood shoulder-to-shoulder before revealing a sculpture created in Princess Diana’s honour and placed in the remodelled Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, a place of solace and safety for her before she died in 1997. 

The bronze made by Ian Rank-Broadley shows Diana with her arms around two children with another little boy following behind.

The image of their mother towered over the brothers as they revealed it to the world this afternoon surrounded by 4,000 of her favourite flowers.

Its design was top secret and appears to be inspired by Diana’s official 1993 Christmas card – her first sent without Prince Charles – where she wears the same open ribbed shirt, skirt and belt as she smiles lovingly at her two sons. 

But rather than depict her with her boys as she appeared in the card, she is posed with three children – two of whom are not wearing shoes. One of the boys appears to have short afro-style hair. The palace said ‘it represents the universality and generational impact of The Princess’ work.’

Prince Charles was not present at the ceremony, which was changed to a ‘private event’ instead of the large celebration to mark Diana’s life as originally intended. 

The move to scale back the unveiling was largely due to bad blood between the brothers and Harry’s determination to control media coverage – and was only broadcast after it was over and the Duke of Sussex was leaving.
