Prince Harry raised eyebrows after arriving at London’s High Court yesterday – with Elton John also putting in an appearance.

Prince Harry arrives at the High Court in London

Prince Harry’s arrival at London’s High Court yesterday was partly an attempt to deflect attention from father King Charles, who had been scheduled to be in France for a state visit hosted by Emmanuel Macron, a royal watcher has said. The Duke of Sussex raised eyebrows after he was pictured outside the court yesterday – and Australian commentator Daniela Elser claimed he had ulterior motives for doing so.

She wrote for news.com.au: “Harry’s trip to London has ‘stunt’ written all over it. You see, Monday’s courtroom outing was only a preliminary hearing and Harry was not there to give evidence. Remote access was reportedly provided meaning that Aitch could have watched things online from the comfort of his Montecito meditation yurt.

“First off the bat. Him turning up in person in the UK, only the fifth time he has done so in over three years, was a sure-fire way to ensure that the court case got serious publicity.”

However, proposing a second reason, she added: “Right now, if more than one million French people had not decided to take to their boulevards to burn things in protest over President Emanuel Macron’s unilateral raising of the retirement age, then Charles and Camilla would be in Paris for their first overseas state.

“All of this Harry may have been aware of when he made the decision to return to the UK, meaning he possibly booked his tickets knowing that he would be making a splash in London while his father was trying his hand at regal statesmanship for the first time.”

King Charles’s first portrait released and it features subtle nod to his climate activism

King Charles’s first portrait since he acceded the throne last September has been released.

The oil painting, by artist Alistair Barford, was created in just two weeks and the artist completed it without the monarch formally sitting for the portrait.

Instead, the artist studied the King while he was busying himself at a Buckingham Palace reception last month.

Mr Barford attended the reception on February 17, which was held in support of global biodiversity, to observe the King at work.
