It was the Easter break so possibly at Amner Hall. Not sure when schools open. I think It was a live video link.

I'd read that Harry was going to see her first...........but, in any case, point taken. I thought Nott Cott (love saying that, lol) was near Frogmore.........isn't Frogmore on Windsor grounds?

Frogmore Cottage is very near Windsor Castle (donít know whether Eugenie and family are living there or are at Ivy Cottage). Ivy and Nott Cottages are part of the Kensington Palace complex.

I saw Frogmore cottage yesterday . It is literally right by the Cambridge gate entrance to Windsor. Given the trees and stuff surrounding it and Eugenies social media . She is living there.

He couldn't see her anyway. He has to quarantine.

I think he arrived a bit earlier than that. Here in Australia we started getting reports of his arrival over three hours ago on our early Monday TV news.

The Express is reporting that Harry will not wear military uniform at the funeral.

If true, that's got to sting, especially if Charles and William are wearing uniforms. Hopefully everyone involved can be gracious about it.

We don’t know whether any of the royals will wear military uniform. There’s been no notification from the Palace that this will be the dress code.

And if he doesn’t, he will hardly be standing out. None of the grandchildren apart from William or the grandchildren’s spouses are or have been in the military forces.

But Prince Philip was in hospital for weeks and none of his family but Prince Charles went to visit him while he was there. As his children and grandchildren were in their own family bubbles (as was Philip and the Queen) itís extremely debatable that any of them besides Charles saw him close up face to face during those last months of his life.

If most of them visited Windsor Castle to see the couple during the last lockdown then the media must have missed it because it wasnít recorded. During Covid family members from different households could not visit each other, whether they were royal or not.


Covid has been raging in both the US and the UK with huge case numbers. Itís not as simple as just getting on a plane to visit a family member, however old they are, and hasnít been for nearly two years.

Oh, please with the hyperbole. Covid has only been with us for about 16 months, MAX, and it wasn't even making the news outside of China until mid-January 2020, just 15 months ago.

And the media could have missed it if they weren't camped out at every single possible entrance to Windsor Castle. Andrew lives at Royal Lodge and could have easily visited without anyone from the media recording it. Charles and HM clearly visited with each other outdoors prior to Easter. I think it's all but certain that they did visit once he was out of the hospital but we're never going to know for sure, and that's just fine. We don't need to know.

As for Harry - It would have been a lot more obvious had he boarded a plane in LA and the media would have absolutely camped out at Heathrow to monitor all arrivals from the US and it would have certainly raised the speculation that Philip was at death's door. That coupled with Meghan probably just having entered her third trimester, I honestly think it just made more sense, no matter how much he would have wanted to see his grandfather before he passed away, for him to remain in California until Philip did pass away. Maybe it was clear that the end was near but Philip could have lingered for much longer and how long does Harry stay in the UK once he completes the quarantine? Plus, he would then have to fly back and quarantine again for a funeral. Harry was, IMO, in a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" position with regard to travel & quarantine restrictions.

I have much compassion for him, being so far away. I was a freshman in college when my paternal grandfather died, on the other side of the country and my family didn't have the money to fly me out to Oregon unexpectedly for a funeral, so I wasn't able to be there for that but did come up the following summer to visit my grandmother who took me to visit his gravesite at the national cemetery. That's the choice that sometimes we face, and it's all we can do. I'm glad Harry has made it to London and will be able to attend the funeral.

I don't see why flying to the UK to see Philip, seeing Philip, flying back to California, and then turning around and flying to the UK again a week or two later for the funeral would have been worse than not seeing him. As I understand the quarantine rules, it wouldn't have violated any of them. It would have been an extra week or so away from Meghan, but well before the due date. If she's just barely in her third trimester now, her accompanying him for the first trip might have been an option. It seems none of his jobs involve anything he can't do remotely, so he could have done them just as well from quarantine at Frogmore or wherever. I'm sure those properties all have high-speed internet. The travel itself might not have been pleasant, but if that's the biggest problem, it's hardly a reason not to do it. No one would expect an ordinary person with a real job and limited means to do that, but Harry was fortunate to have the option, and I'll never understand why he didn't take advantage of it.

Monday morning here in Aus and they reported that Harry arrived Sunday (via Commercial jet) and was whisked away in a Rangerover. Then one correspondent said he will be staying at Frogmore Cottage. Then another correspondent on another channel said he will be staying at Nottingham cottage at Kensington Palace. They simply do not know for sure at this stage.

I don't think any of the grandchildren have seen him recently - although they may have done so before Windsor was put under Tier 4 restrictions in December. The children and their spouses will all have been vaccinated, but the grandchildren are all under 50 so their turn hasn't come yet.

Something about ''emasculated'' Harry narrative bothers me.

Throghout his life and public work, Harry's granpa, Duke of Edinburgh, has been praised for walking two steps behind his wife , Queen Elizabeth. And supporting her and monarchy. I have never seen word emasculated next to Phillip's name.

Why do so many people have different standards for Harry , that supporting and caring about your wife and kids is not very masculine or regal?

I can't speak for others, and I don't think Harry is "emasculated," but the double standard here isn't the one you're thinking. Philip didn't spend 70-odd years walking two steps behind Elizabeth because he thought that's what good husbands are supposed to do when they love their wives. He spent 70-odd years walking two steps behind her because she was the queen. Had she not been the queen, they'd have had a much more equal relationship. I doubt anyone - even either of them - believed that their dynamic was normal and healthy for ordinary people.

I hadn't thought of this comparison until you brought it up, but in some ways, Harry does support Meghan in much the same way Philip supported Elizabeth. The difference is that Meghan isn't the queen or even royal, and without that practical reason for the disparity, it seems far less healthy.
