Prince Harry is expected to attend his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral in the UK — marking his first trip home since famously quitting the royal family, a source told The Post Friday.
But it’s unclear whether heavily pregnant Meghan Markle — who is due with the couple’s second child in early summer — will join Harry, even though she wants to be by his side, the source said.
Her ability to fly the nearly 12 hours from the Sussexes’ California home to England will depend on her doctor’s orders and air carrier guidance, the source added.
But Harry wouldn’t miss the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral for the world.
“Harry was extremely close to his grandfather,” a UK royal source told The Post. “He will, of course, be there, no matter how difficult relations are between the Sussexes and the family.”
Harry’s expected return to his native country comes after he and Markle split from the royal family in January 2020 — and weeks after their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey that roiled Buckingham Palace.
In the two-hour no-holds-barred sit down, Markle revealed that someone in the royal family questioned how dark son Archie’s skin might be.
In February, Harry said he keeps in touch with his grandparents via Zoom.
“We’ve Zoomed them a few times,” he told talk show host James Corden. “They’ve seen Archie running around.”
The Duke of Sussex laughed as he recalled that instead of clicking to leave the call, Prince Philip would slam his laptop shut.
“He just goes ‘doof’!” Harry said, mimicking shutting a laptop.
All senior members of the royal family are expected to attend Prince Philip’s funeral at Windsor Castle amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with a service at St. George’s Chapel — where Harry and Meghan wed in 2018.
A rep for the Sussexes was not available for comment.
