Prince Harry phones Queen for urgent talk – Duke could return in private jet for Philip

25033

PRINCE HARRY has called the Queen to discuss Prince Philip’s health amid a furore surrounding his and Meghan Markle’s decision to renounce their royal obligations.

Prince Harry is believed to be self-isolating in his Californian mansion alongside his wife Meghan and their child Archie.

Insiders suggest the Prince is ready to return to the UK by private jet if his grandfather’s health deteriorates.

He has made it clear he wants to be “regularly informed” about the Duke of Edinburgh’s condition.

The Duke of Edinburgh reportedly walked into hospital unaided last week when he was admitted after feeling unwell.

On Friday, a Palace source said: “Following consultation with his doctor, the Duke of Edinburgh is likely to remain in hospital.

“This will be for observation and rest over the weekend and into next week.

“As we have said previously, the doctor is acting with an abundance of caution.

“The duke remains in good spirits.”

Prince Charles visited Prince Philip on Saturday, driving from his home in Highgrove, Gloucestershire.

The Prince of Wales visited his father in a grey Tesla car at 3.20 pm on Saturday.

He stayed in the hospital for 30 minutes before exiting and leaving in the Tesla whilst wearing a face mask.

Harry made the call to the Queen from his new home outside Los Angeles after he and Meghan had made the announcement they would discontinue royal duties.

A spokesperson for the Royal Family said the pair would permanently step back from “the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service”.

However, the couple said they would remain committed to the charities they are patrons of, stating “service is universal”.

The news of the couple’s final decision to permanently stay in California left the royal family reeling.

Harry and Meghan were stripped of their royal patronages as part of the split agreement.

And Harry also lost his beloved military titles.
