Prince Harry is staying at Frogmore Cottage in quarantine ahead of the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Earlier reports suggested Harry was staying at Nottingham Cottage, his first marital home with Meghan, on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

But it has been confirmed the prince is at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, the Grade II listed home the Duke and Duchess of Sussex renovated before deciding to leave the UK.

He released a statement today paying tribute to Prince Philip as “a man of service, honour and great humour”, adding that “he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ‘til the end”.

His brother William also released a statement on Monday afternoon calling his grandfather “an extraordinary man.”

Harry arrived from California on a British Airways flight yesterday, according to reports.

He travelled without Meghan, who is pregnant and due to give birth in the summer. She has not travelled after she was not given medical clearance by her doctor.

Due to Covid -19 restrictions Harry must quarantine for 10 days.

Harry will be allowed to come out of quarantine on ‘compassionate grounds’ to attend the funeral, but will have to self-iolsate at all other times and maintain social distancing.

The prince could opt to end his 10-day quarantine early under the government’s “Test to Release” scheme.

It would allow him to pay for a private test from an approved supplier five days into quarantine. He could leave quarantine if the result is negative.

The funeral on Saturday within the grounds of Windsor Castle will be the first time Harry has appeared with his family since he quit as a senior working royal last year, and he and Meghan gave a bombshell interview to Oprah Winfrey.
