"I think the family dynamic is pretty rock bottom I'm afraid," NBC royal commentator Daisy McAndrew said. "I would love to be saying they've all made up but there is no indication that's the case. We're expecting Harry to come over for the unveiling that would coincide with Diana's 60th birthday on July 1. The latest I've heard is that he's planning on flying in and flying out on the same day."
She added, "There's no suggestion that he will be bringing baby Lili, Meghan or Archie with him."
A few days before Harry and Meghan announced the arrival of their daughter, Lilibet Diana, a royal expert predicted that the red-headed royal may forgo the event altogether.
"I imagine that Prince Harry is relieved that Meghan's due date is so close to the event because it is the perfect excuse for the prince to sit this one out and stay at home in the States," Kinsey Schofield told The Mirror. "We've learned since Prince Philip's funeral that there was little to no reconciliation between the princes. It would be catastrophically unfair for Prince Harry to return to the UK for Princess Diana's statue unveiling and to fight behind closed doors with Prince William about Meghan Markle. This event needs to be about their mother and it needs to honor their mother."
Now that Lili is named after Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth, it seems like Harry might be trying to make amends with his family — slowly but surely.
"It's a lovely gesture on the part of Harry and Meghan," royal expert Duncan Larcombe said. "The baby name is the first sign of an olive branch to the royal family. It's a sign they want to build bridges. There has never been any suggestion of a fallout with the Queen and Harry. His war is with the institution, not his grandmother."
