“Harry will likely stay in the U.K. until the funeral. I can’t imagine Meghan won’t attend, but again from a human perspective, Meghan was expecting to leave the kids for six days, not weeks, so [it] may not be possible for her to stay the whole time,” the commentator.

She also revealed that the couple arrived in Scotland separately from the rest of the Royal Princes and Sophie, the wife of Prince William all flew on Royal Airforce jet.

Shannon mentioned the ongoing tension that already existed between Harry, his wife and other members of the royal family “I think it is telling Harry was in a different car, so by the optics — Harry arriving and leaving alone — tells you what the relationship and tone was like between families”.
