Buckingham Palace announced last month that Harry would attend alone, according to the New York Times. Harry arrived in London on Friday and is expected to return to the United States after the ceremony, BBC reported. Meghan is back in California to celebrate Archie’s fourth birthday, CNN reported.

Harry stayed at Frogmore Cottage, according to the BBC.

Harry, 38, sat in the third row between Princess Eugenie’s husband, Jack Brooksbank, and Princess Alexandra, according to People Magazine.

Harry, the youngest of Charles’ two children with the late Princess Diana, arrived at Westminster Abbey at about 5:45 a.m. EDT, according to USA Today. Harry walked down the aisle and greeted some attendees.

Harry wore a morning suit for the service which is a ceremonial dress unicorn for the Welsh Guards, according to USA Today. He did not wear his uniform since he has stepped down from royal duties. He also donned a morning suit for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

His attendance has been part of speculation after many interviews, documentaries, and Harry’s recent book, “Spare.” It also became a month after Harry and Meghan were asked to move out of Frogmore Cottage, which is located on Windsor Castle grounds, according to the Times. There has also been much speculation due to the rift among the royal family.

Also in attendance is his brother Prince William, Princess Kate, and their three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, USA Today reported.

It is unclear if Harry will appear on the famous balcony of Buckingham Palace after the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, CNN reported.

Harry and Meghan have attended a few royal events since they stepped down as senior royals in 2020 and moved to the United States, the Times reported. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral last September. Harry attended his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral alone in 2021.
