Filled with regret? Though the royal family had plenty of time to say goodbye to Prince Philip before he passed away at his home on April 9, the same can't be said for Prince Harry.

An insider told Us Weekly that Harry is "really upset" and "feels guilty for not being there to say goodbye to Prince Philip in person."

Last March, when the father-of-one and wife Meghan Markle stepped down from the royal family, they left the U.K. and moved to California. And since the Coronavirus then began to spread, he wasn't able to spend much time with his grandparents.

Meghan revealed last month that they still kept in touch with the family, claiming that after Philip's surgery and hospitalization, she "just picked up the phone..." and "called [Queen Elizabeth II] just to check in. I just called, that’s what we do."

According to a second source, plans for a small funeral are already underway, but a "devastated" Harry "is hopeful that he’ll be able to return home to honor his grandfather, who he had a close bond with."

The source noted the Queen also "wants Harry to be there" even though there's still tension between him and the royal family after his tell-all with Oprah Winfrey.

Another insider told The Post that Harry "was extremely close to his grandfather," so "he will, of course" be at the funeral, "no matter how difficult relations are between the Sussexes and the family.”

To announce Philip's death, the royal family made a joint statement and posted a tribute on social media. 

"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," the statement said. "His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle."

Some hour laters, Harry and the Suits actress honored him in their own way with a short note on their Archewell website.

"In loving memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh," their note read. "Thank you for your service, you will be greatly missed."
