The Queen has raced to meet Prince Harry after he arrived in the UK for the unveiling of a statue of Princess Diana.

Prince Harry touched down in the UK over the weekend and is now quarantining at Frogmore Cottage, where his cousin, Princess Eugenie lives.

According to The Sun, the Queen barely gave Harry time to unpack his suitcase before she was spotted making her way to visit her grandson.

“It is quite something. No sooner had Harry been driven from Heathrow to Frogmore Cottage the Queen was on her way down,” a source said.

“I’m sure they would have plenty to talk about. The Queen would obviously want to see her grandson after everything that has gone on and could take this opportunity to act as the peacemaker.”

Harry is set to appear with his brother Prince William this week for an emotional ceremony at Kensington Palace where a statue of their late mother, Princess Diana, will be unveiled.

It's expected the siblings will walk together to unveil the statue before then giving separate speeches.

Although a larger gathering was originally planned, regulations due to the COVID-19 pandemic mean it will be a smaller group including the brothers and the Spencer family.

The ceremony will mark the first time Harry and William have been together since their grandfather Prince Philip's funeral.

The 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge and 36-year-old Duke of Sussex were snapped chatting as they made their way from St. George's Chapel back to Windsor Castle alongside the rest of the royal family.

Twitter exploded once the moment was shown on TV, with one person commenting: “This is so lovely to see! The three of them supporting each other in this sad time”.

“Grief really makes people come together and reevaluate everything,” another person wrote.

One source told The Mirror, "It will take a long time to heal on all sides, but the initial signs are encouraging. It is very much hoped this is a turning point."

Another added: "It’s no secret tensions have been running incredibly high of late, not to mention the brothers have barely uttered a word to each other in many months.

"Perhaps with the Duke’s passing and their grandmother’s call for unity it could be the catalyst for a renewed relationship. Everyone certainly hopes so."

Prince Harry's relationship with his family has been fraught for months now, with the royal telling Oprah he needed 'space' from his big brother.

However, Prince Harry rushed home to the UK from California when his grandfather died, and many royal sources were hoping the family would reunite in grief.

The Sussexes made a series of claims against the royal family in their now famous interview with Oprah Winfrey.
