As Prince Harry boarded a plane from Los Angeles to London, we can only imagine the inner turmoil he must have felt as he prepared for the long and lonely journey home. His adored grandfather had died at a time of unprecedented familial discord, with the Royal Family still reeling from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s corrosive, finger-pointing Oprah Winfrey interview. Prince Philip’s death may have prompted an outpouring of national gratitude and affection, but the question now is whether it can cement the deep fissures within the House of Windsor itself. How will Harry be welcomed by Princes William and Charles, after accusing his family of racism? Not to mention following reports, via Gayle King, a US news anchor and friend of Meghan, that private telephone calls between the California-based prince and his father and brother had been “unproductive” - disclosures said to have gone down badly at the Palace. That Harry had not seen his grandfather for more than a year, after he whisked his wife and son, Archie, to the other side of the world to escape being “trapped” by the monarchy, can only add to the Duke of Sussex’s inevitable feelings of wretchedness and grief. His sense of isolation will likely have been compounded by the fact that Meghan, heavily pregnant with their second child, hasn’t been able to accompany him. The echoes of history here are uncanny as, nearly 70 years ago, a similar scenario played out. Another once-beloved member of the Royal Family had to leave his American wife behind in the United States to make the solitary journey home for a royal funeral, where he had to face his frosty relations, saddened that he had quit monarchical life. In 1952, when King George VI died, his brother Edward, the Duke of Windsor - exiled to France after the abdication - was staying in New York with his wife, Wallis Simpson.

The target of offering a first COVID vaccine dose to the nine most vulnerable groups by 15 April has been reached, the government has said. Ministers had vowed to offer a COVID-19 jab to all over-50s, the clinically vulnerable and health and social care workers - about 32 million people - by Thursday. The target - for the whole of the UK - was reached three days early and means adults under 50 will start to be invited for their first jab "in the coming days", Number 10 said.

America may not use the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine because it has now bought so many alternative jabs, the country's top pandemic adviser to the White House has said. Dr Anthony Fauci stressed the decision was not a criticism of the beleaguered vaccine, but it comes as weeks of bad news have battered worldwide trust in the jab. Faith in the vaccine has already plummeted in Europe, though not in the UK, and countries including France and Germany have restricted the jab in younger people following rare cases of low platelet counts and clots in the brain. The UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has said the benefits still outweigh the risks, but healthy young people aged 18 to 29 should be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines as an alternative. America has stockpiled millions of doses of the AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine, though it has not yet been given approval for use. The country is also expected to soon amass a huge surplus of various vaccine doses as production ramps up. Excess doses may hit 600 million jabs later in the year according to some estimates.
