Prince Harry was in attendance at his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral this weekend alongside his father Prince Charles and brother Prince William.

Prince Harry, 36, flew to the UK last week following the death of his grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Duke of Sussex isolated at Frogmore Cottage following his journey so he could attend the funeral at Windsor Castle alongside his brother, father and grandmother the Queen.

His wife, Meghan Markle the Duchess of Sussex, remained in the USA after it doctors could not give her the all-clear to travel while pregnant.

But how long is Prince Harry staying in the UK and will he be spending time with his family while back?
