Although Meghan will not attend the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral on Saturday, the Duchess is keen to move on from the row with members of the Royal Family. As Meghan is pregnant with the couple’s second child, Prince Harry has returned to the UK on his own for the first time since the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey. Meghan was advised against travelling but according to sources, the Duchess did not want to become the centre of attention while the family pays its respects to Philip.

Amid these claims, Express.co.uk is asking in today’s exclusive online poll: “Should Royal Family put differences aside?”

Ahead of the funeral on Saturday, a friend told the MailOnline, Meghan is ready to put differences aside and “unite as one”.

The insider also added Philip would’ve wanted the pair to reunite with the family following his passing.

Although Meghan had a close bond with Philip, she left it to Harry to decide where she should attend the funeral or not.

The source told MailOnline: “Meghan said her main concern right now is supporting Harry.

“She said she left it up to him as to whether or not she would attend the funeral.

“Meghan said it’s during these times when family should come together, put their differences aside and unite as one.

“She said this is what Prince Philip would want and that she’s willing to forgive and move forward.”

Harry arrived in London last weekend and is now self-isolating at Frogmore Cottage ahead of the funeral.

Ahead of the funeral, Harry and Prince William spoke over the phone in an attempt to resolve the rift between them.

The two brothers have had a difficult relationship of late but in order to support the Queen, they will put their differences aside on Saturday to support their grandmother.

The call came shortly after Harry landed in the UK on Sunday afternoon as they prepare to meet for the first time this year.

A source told The Daily Telegraph: “They know it is not about them on Saturday – it is about honouring their grandfather’s memory and supporting their grandmother.

“I would be extremely surprised if that wasn’t front and centre of both their minds.

“They will be keen to spend time together as a family, in the same time zone for once.”

It is though Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge will act as peacemaker between the two brothers during the funeral.

A second source told the newspaper: “The entire focus is on the Queen.

“No exceptions. A family unified.”

Philip’s funeral will be held at the St George’s Chapel, Windsor and will be attended by 30 guests due to covid restrictions.
