Prince Harry reportedly wants nothing more than to return to the UK to be with the Queen after his grandfather Prince Philip's death today.

The 36 year old hasn't been back to visit since last March, when he and pregnant wife Meghan Markle, 39, carried out their final engagements as working members of the Royal Family.

It was previously reported that the Duke of Sussex had been self-isolating in case he needed to rush back to the UK during his grandfather Prince Philip's stay in hospital last month.

Now, sources close to the couple have told the Daily Mail that Harry is doing everything he can to return home to be with his grieving family during this difficult time.
