Transcript for Prince Harry returns to UK ahead of Prince Philip's funeral
Let's bring in our royal contributors, omid Scobie, and Robert Jobson. Omid, this is the first time Harry will come face to face with his family since that interview. What can we expect from this Well, this is Harry's first time of course, seeing his family not only since he stepped back from his royal role, but also since that bombshell Oprah interview, but of course, Harry's mind is very much fixed on paying tribute to his father -- his grandfather, and , you know, we will hear from him later today, alongside his brother separately, and their feelings on remembering the life of prince Philip. That's the focus of this trip. That's what brings them together unified in remembrance of the duke at this time. Robert, is this a chance for William and Harry to heal their rift? Well, funerals are difficult times, not the best of times, are they? I think they're probably really going to have to focus on mending that relationship another time as mid was saying about absolutely focused on grief and mourning their grandfather. So mid, do you agree with that? Omid, do you agree with that, that there won't be any discussion at all about the past troubles? Yeah. This trip is very much Harry coming here to support his grandmother at a very difficult time. Every family member at the moment is really on the same page, and they're here for one reason only. So any problems between family members, that's going to be left very much outside of this situation. Harry hasn't come over here with an ulterior motive other than to remember his grandfather, and that's what we're going to see today with both of the brothers paying tribute separately in statements and throughout the week, that's what the focus will be on. We know that Meghan can't travel because of her pregnancy. What do you make of that? What difference will that make in London this week? Probably be easier for the family to deal with that because the reality is, you know, she's made these comments on air, and that was of course, very deep and personal comments and I think Harry will be able to blend and mix with his family a lot easier really. He's going to be more at ease with family without her there, and I think if any bridges are going to be built, it's easier if she's not actually there. The reality is she couldn't really come because of the pregnancy, but in my opinion, it'll make it easier for that to happen. Harry and Meghan maintained a pretty good relationship with prince Philip. Yeah. If there's one thing that's remained constant throughout all the turbulence of the past year, it's Harry and Meghan's close relationship with the queen and prince Philip. We had a talk with James corden about that, and it will be a sad moment for them. Of course, Meghan isn't here, but she's supporting Harry. I think the words he shares in his statement will be very much on behalf of the Sussex family, and her mind is very much on the situation over here. As I said, this is really about remembering prince Philip, and any other problems that exist within the family will be left for another time. Thank you both very much. We're going to have live coverage of the funeral beginning Saturday morning at 9:30 eastern right here on ABC.
