Prince Philip funeral updates – Harry’s ‘deeply personal note’ revealed as Charles privately grieves Duke in Wales

THE DUKE of Sussex wrote Prince Charles a “deeply personal note” ahead of his homecoming for Prince Philip’s funeral.

Prince Harry touched base with Charles before he returned to the UK for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, where he was reunited with his family for the first time since he left royal life last year.

Sources close to Harry said he has been “forced to write letters” after a “complete communication breakdown” with his father, it emerged yesterday.

The notes are thought to have “outlined his reasons for leaving” his position to live in California with mum-to-be Meg and their one-year-old son Archie, while promising to “respect the institution”.

Meanwhile, Charles is said to have headed to a Welsh bolthole to privately grieve the loss of his father, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Reports on Sunday claimed future kings Charles and William were set to “hold a summit on the future” of the Monarchy and discuss plans of a slimmed-down monarchy over the next two generations.

It comes after the Queen paid an emotional farewell to her late husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, during his funeral on the weekend.

Due to Covid restrictions, the Queen was forced to sit alone inside Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel as she led the Royal Family in mourning at the funeral of her beloved husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

And after Saturday’s service, Kate Middleton acted as a peacemaker between Prince Harry and William as they shared a private chat while walking away from Philip’s emotional funeral.

The tender reunion after more than a year apart, came after they stood apart to walk behind their grandfather’s coffin, and were sat separately in the chapel.

Dressed in a face mask and in sombre black, it was the first time the Queen, grieving for her devoted companion of 73 years, has been officially seen in public since Philip died eight days ago.
