Prince Harry will 'fly in and out of the UK on the same day' when he returns for the Diana statue unveiling next month.

The statue by renowned artist Ian Rank-Broadley, known for his portrait of the Queen on British coins, will be installed in the Sunken Garden of Kensington palace on July 1.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, will reunite with his brother Prince William, 38, at the ceremony.

NBC royal commentator Daisy McAndrew said that while Harry will to return to the UK for the memorial, he has plans to “fly out the same day” after the event is over.

Speaking to the Australian morning show Today, Daisy said: “I think the family dynamic is pretty rock bottom I'm afraid.

“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."

She added: “The latest I’ve heard is that he’s planning on flying in and flying out on the same day.

“There’s no suggestion that he will be bringing baby Lili, Meghan or Archie with him.”

This comes after the Queen invited Prince Harry to lunch for what would be their first private meeting since he stepped down from his royal duties last year, according to reports.

It has been claimed that the Queen is hoping to use her grandson’s time back in England for a “chance to talk things through” and address his “strained” relationship with the royal family.

It is still unknown whether the Prince, who is set to take five months off for paternity leave, will take up his grandmother’s offer for lunch despite their well-known close relationship.

Along with the memorial statue, the BBC are set to air a number of programmes dedicated to the late Princess, including a new documentary about Diana which hopes to tell “the definitive story of the most famous woman in the world.”

This comes after reporter Lord Dyson aired his bombshell special on panorama which found that journalist Martin Bashir “deceitfully” obtained his infamous 1995 interview with Princess Diana using false bank statements.

Dyson found that BBC bosses also knew about the dodgy actions of the journalist, including the forged banks statements he used to secure his interview, but tried to hide his deceitful behaviour with a whitewash report.
