Princess Diana’s statue was unveiled in this July in the presence of both of her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. The Duke of Cambridge will be holding a special event to thank donors who contributed to the fund for the statue but a spokesman for the Duke of Sussex confirmed he will not be in attendance. Royally Us hosts Molly Mulshine and Christina Garibaldi claimed the Duke will instead privately “reach out” to contributors to thank them for their support.

Ms Garibaldi said: “Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will not be in attendance at this month’s event to honour Princess Diana at Kensington Palace.

“A source confirmed to us that they are not attending but Harry is going to be reaching out to the donors specifically.

“This event was supposed to take place back in July when the statue of Diana was revealed but was postponed due to Covid.”

Ms Mulshine asked: “Why do you think they’re not going?”

Ms Garibaldi added: “I don’t know, I understand why Meghan might not want to go, she’s still in that newborn haze, the baby is only four months old.

“Maybe she doesn’t want to travel with the baby, especially with Covid.

“I can’t really understand why Harry wouldn’t jump on a plane and go over there.”

Ms Mulshine finished with: “It’s very interesting, especially because it’s meant to honour the people who paid for this statue.

It’s the donors that enabled it to happen, so it’s just an interesting choice to not go.”

The memorial party will be attended by Sir Elton John, who donated to the creation of the statue, among other friends of Diana.

It is not known why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not be attending the event, or when they will return to Britain again.

Meghan Markle was last in the UK in March 2020, when she attended a Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey.

Prince Harry has returned twice, once for the funeral of the late Prince Philip, and again for the unveiling of the statue back in July.

Their daughter, Lilibet-Diana, is yet to meet any members of the British royals but she is believed to have been introduced to the Queen via video meeting.

The couple’s eldest child, son Archie Harrison, has also yet to return to the UK since his family’s relocation to California.
