Princess Eugenie could act as a peacemaker between Prince Harry and other senior royals when he returns to the UK, an expert has said.

He and Prince William will be reunited in the grounds of Kensington Palace on July 1 to unveil a statue in honour of their late mum Princess Diana, to mark what would have been her 60th birthday.

The Duke of Sussex is set to stay in Covid-secure Frogmore Cottage with cousin Eugenie when he flies over, The Sun earlier reported.

Royal author and expert Marlene Koenig, who runs royalmusings, believes Eugenie could be a useful ally when Harry gets back.

She told the Daily Star: “We don’t know for sure if he’s going to stay at Frogmore… but that might be a good thing, because he seems to have a good relationship with his cousin.

“After all, she did congratulate them on her Instagram account on the birth of Lilibet.

“She could be someone he could talk with as a conduit.”

Asked if Eugenie may act as a peacemaker, Marlene responded: “Could possibly be, we never know for sure unless somebody says it… they grew up together, so I would think possibly she could be.”

A source told The Sun that Prince Charles will be in Scotland when Harry arrives, and that there is no “planned meeting” with his son.

Tensions have been high between Harry and William for several years, and only seem to have escalated since Harry’s interview withOprah Winfreywas broadcast.

They were pictured chatting afterPrince Philip’sfuneral in April, but it is unclear how much progress was made during the “peace talks”.

Marlene continued: “Eugenie would be in the best place because she’s not his sister in law, she’s his cousin.

“There were reports that Catherine tried to affect a conversation between the two brothers and we don’t how that was.”
