Prince Harry is expected to make just a flying visit to London for the unveiling of a statue honouring his beloved mum next month, according to a royal commentator.

The tribute to Princess Diana will be unveiled in the grounds of Kensington Palace on July 1 – on the day that would have been her 60th birthday.

There has been widespread speculation over whether or not the estranged prince would return from the United States for the ceremony. At one point, it was thought a date clash with the birth of his and Meghan Markle’s second child would scupper his plans to fly over.

And with the supposed rift between the Sussexes and the wider Royal Family, observers wondered if he would come back for the statue’s unveiling even if he could.

But one expert now believes he will attend – although he’ll head back across the Pond later the same day, and there will be no sign of Meghan, Archie or new-born Lilibet.

NBC royal commentator Daisy McAndrew told Australian morning show Today: "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.

"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."

Diana was killed in a Paris car crash in August 1997. Harry was 12 at the time and his brother William was 15.

The statue has been designed by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, who also produced the image of the Queen that is used on Britain’s coins.

Meanwhile, the revelation that Harry, 36, and Meghan have named his daughter Lilibet Diana has split public opinion. Some feel that it is a touching tribute to his mum and to the Queen, whose childhood nickname was Lilibet.

Others suggest that it is an effort by the Sussexes at offering an olive branch towards the rest of the Royal Family.
