In the short time available after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, Prince Harry did manage to have a number of preliminary conversations with his father, Prince Charles, and brother, Prince William, a friend of Harry’s has claimed.

But there is still a long way to go before wounds on both sides are healed, they added.

William and Harry are said to have taken "baby steps" towards healing their relationship with encouragement from royal peacemaker Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.

But a lot was left unsaid. The flying visit to the UK was a "family-focused" trip intended to "honour the life of his grandfather and support his grandmother and relatives," a source close to Harry told royal expert Omid Scobie.

While the princes would have had some discussions about the family rift, most serious issues were put aside for the time being and a more thorough summit is likely to take place later this Summer, when Harry, 36, is expected to return for the unveiling of a statue of his late mother, Princess Diana.

Writing in Harpers’ Bazaar magazine, Scobie also claimed that widespread reports of Prince Harry writing a "deeply personal" letter to his father before the funeral are untrue.

However, he says that the Duke of Sussex did meet privately with Her Majesty the Queen twice during his nine-day visit to the UK.

The Prince has now returned home to Montecito, California, to be with his pregnant wife Meghan. Harry reportedly flew into a private terminal at Los Angeles airport on an American Airlines flight from London Heathrow shortly after 1.30pm local time yesterday – April 19.

He is now expected to complete another period of quarantine at home.

Her Majesty the Queen, who celebrates her 95th birthday today, is celebrating a birthday without her husband – who had been a constant presence at her side for over 70 years.

She is expected to have a private lunch with family members at Windsor Castle, and, for the second year running, the Queen's birthday will pass without a gun salute.
