Harry was supposed to return to the United Kingdom this summer when he and Prince William would unveil the statue of their late mother, Princess Diana. However, it looks like Harry — who recently bashed the royal family to Oprah Winfrey — will be seeing his brood sooner than he thought. 

It looks like Harry will be making the trip by himself, as his wife is currently pregnant with their second child.

Despite the drama, the red-headed royal is adamant on being with his family during this trying time. 

“Harry was extremely close to his grandfather,” a royal source told The Post. “He will, of course, be there, no matter how difficult relations are between the Sussexes and the family.”

During the tell-all, Harry touched upon his relationships with his father and brother but had nothing but great things to say about his grandparents. 

"I've spoken more to my grandmother in the last year than I have done for many, many years. My grandmother and I have a really good relationship and an understanding, and I have a deep respect for her," he said about Queen Elizabeth II. "She's my commander-in-chief, right? She always will be."

While speaking to James Corden in February, he admitted he frequently video chats with his grandparents. 

“We’ve Zoomed them a few times,” he shared. “They’ve seen Archie running around.”
