“Meghan knows how hard it was to attend his grandfather’s funeral alone and doesn’t want that to happen again. Harry was given the cold shoulder by most of his relatives, with several refusing to talk to him or even make eye contact,” an insider reveals to Radar.
“Since the funeral things have got worse, not better, so you can only imagine how he will be treated at the big event on July 1st,” the source added.
Newborn, Lilibet Diana, who is named after Harry’s mother and grandmother, the Queen, will not be traveling with mom and dad, but little Archie could make the trek from Los Angeles.
“Meghan and Harry know the event is going to be dominated by Prince William, Kate and their children. The Cambridges call Kensington Palace home and have been working feverishly to make the entire event is flawless,” the insider spilled.
“The day will not just be about honoring Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday, but also an opportunity for William to take ownership of his mother's legacy,” sources added.
“That will be more difficult if either Meghan and Harry attend," the insider believes.
Although Palace insiders add that nothing would please The Queen more than seeing both of Diana’s boys and their wives standing together putting on a united front.
Radar obtained the first image of where the Princess Diana statue will be erected in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, which was a favorite place of Diana when she lived at the palace.
The installation of Princess Diana's statue is set to take place on July 1, 2021, which would have been her 60th birthday.
Diana's sons released a statement about the purpose of creating the statue. They said, “Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy."
