But the duke surprised everyone with his cheerful demeanor at the ceremony for Princess Diana, signaling he was genuinely happy to be back at Kensington Palace. Despite the obvious tension that still exists between him and Prince William, the Harry we saw at the unveiling was reminiscent of the easygoing "spare" who could always be counted on to tell a joke and lighten the mood whatever the occasion. "He was very much the 'Old Harry' at the unveiling," a royal source told Best Life, "It was great to see him in good form. It reminded a lot people of how things used to be."
Several royals experts now claim the recent visit to his childhood home may have struck a nerve with Harry, who saw all that he left behind when he and Duchess Meghan departed for America. "Between his military affiliations being taken away and how much of an outsider he felt at his own grandfather's funeral, he may be coming to the conclusion that, despite the fact he very much enjoys his new life in California, it came at a very high price," said the insider.
Read on to find out why Harry may be homesick after months of being at war with the royals and the biggest sign that he's looking for a way to repair his relationship with his family.
There were several long-time friends of Harry's who were reportedly cut off after his wedding to Meghan in May 2018. Writing for the Daily Mail just before the unveiling, longtime royal biographer Robert Lacey reported that Harry had begun quietly reaching out to some old friends back in April when he was in England for Prince Philip's funeral. While some members of the Royal Family gave Harry a chilly reception at his own grandfather's funeral, the friends who attended the "lads' lunch" were only glad to see Harry again. William was reportedly not invited, despite having many of the same friends from the same circle, who have done their best to not take sides in the brothers' rift.
An unnamed source told the Mail at the end of June that the informal gathering was a great success and said that meant Harry was "at last showing signs of wanting to reconnect with his old life." The insider added it also showed Harry he "doesn't have to abandon his old life" despite building a new one with Meghan and their children in California. "His friends are really excited, they think that the old Harry is coming back out of his shell," the insider said.
With discord between the Sussexes and the Royal Family at an all-time high, Harry is now said to be willing to admit to his role in the rift, but Meghan is reportedly unwilling to cede any ground. Lacey told Newsweek in June: "On one side, we've got William, who doesn't seem prepared to concede anything, and on the other side, friends have told me that Harry wouldn't mind reconciling and then it's Meghan who is sticking to her guns on this issue."
"By Harry reportedly telling friends he is willing to admit some responsibility for the rift before anyone else involved does is a sign that he still very much wants to be a part of the Royal Family," a royal insider told Best Life. "He is tired of being the outsider. He knows he is and it has worn on him, but without Meghan's support, nothing is going to change."
Back in April, royal biographer Duncan Larcombe, who wrote 2017's Prince Harry: The Inside Story, told Closer that Harry's visit to Britain for Prince Philip's funeral reminded him of "recent damage done," referring to the prince's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey and how it quickly escalated into an ongoing airing of grievances against the Royal Family. Looking ahead, the author said at the time: "I just don't think that Harry will be able to live harmoniously as a part of these two worlds—the royals and the LA showbiz world," adding that there could be "tough times ahead." He said that while Meghan is "in her element" living in her home state of California, Harry is "nostalgic for his old life," which is "bound to cause tension for them."
Now, Larcombe claims that after Harry's recent trip back to England, that tension is building further and Harry could soon find himself "torn" between the Royal Family and Meghan. While Harry is enjoying the "honeymoon phase" of his new life in California, said the author, the trip back for the unveiling of Diana's statue could very well get him thinking about how and why everything in his life changed so dramatically and show him what he is missing out on in the U.K.
Larcombe told Closer: "I think coming back and seeing his brother, especially against the very moving backdrop of a memorial for their mother will maybe make him question what he's given it all up for."
The royal expert also said the relationship between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is unbalanced: "Harry's totally sacrificed relations with his family for his new life with Meghan, and things seem to have been done her way and with her needs first." He added: "I think Harry and Meghan will have to make compromises to make things work with the royals and even to save their marriage—because there will be a point when he'll be torn between Meghan's world and his own family."
Despite not having seen most of his friends in well over a year until recently, Harry has remained close with a discreet network of supporters firmly rooted in the U.K. These are not "unnamed sources" who are quoted in the media, but rather a behind-the-scenes support system consisting of friends of Diana and royal mentors and aides whose ties to Harry date back to his childhood and who have gained Harry's trust over the course of decades. "These people could help ease the way for Harry to be welcomed back in," one source told Best Life. "It's a fair guess his supporters want him to find a way to heal the rift between him and the family and most especially with William."
Interestingly, among his supporters is British psychotherapist Julia Samuel (pictured here), one of Diana's best friends and godmother to William's oldest son, Prince George. She was on the committee for the Diana statue and received a warm welcome from both Harry and William at the unveiling.
Also included in that group are members of the Armed Forces (in some cases, those who have served with Harry) and those affiliated with his former military patronages, who have particularly felt the loss of Harry as part of their circle since his departure for America.
"These people were an important part of Harry's life long before he married Meghan. Some of them have had the opportunity to reconnect with him during his recent trips back home. These face-to-face encounters, especially with those whose connection to Harry were made through his mother, had to have made him think back to a time when he had a very different life in London," a royal source told Best Life. "The time may have come for him to really think about all that he gave up for Meghan and ask himself if he really had to leave everything behind. Only he knows the answer."

Pippa Middleton cut a casual figure in a blue and white check dress as she joined her husband and parents for a family day out at Wimbledon.
The Duchess of Cambridge's sister, 37, kept a low profile in a pair of sunglasses and £185 Ralph Lauren wrap dress as she took her seat next to James Matthews to watch the men's semi-final match between Itay's Matteo Berrettini and Poland's Hubert Hurkacz.
Her parents Carole and Michael Middleton were also on hand to take in the action but were seated in the Royal Box with VIPs including the Queen's cousin Prince Michael of Kent, his son Lord Frederick Windsor and his wife Sophie Winkleman.
Business owner Carole, 66, looked chic in a £350 red sundress, cinched at the waist with a flattering fabric belt, while husband Michael, 72, appeared sharp in a navy suit and polka dot tie. The frock is from Australian label Scanlan Theodore, which has previously worn by her future daughter-in-law Alizee Thevenet.
Their appearance comes after daughter Kate, 39, was forced into self-isolation last Friday afternoon after coming close to someone who had tested positive for coronavirus. She had spent most of the day at Wimbledon with VIPs including Tim Henman and Joe Wicks.

We're due to see the Duchess of Cambridge at Wimbledon this weekend, and both Pippa and Carole Middleton are at SW19 today. That can only mean one thing... plenty of style inspiration!
Carole chose a red linen number by Scanlon Theodore on Friday, while Pippa opted for a gingham dress by Wimbledon favorite, Ralph Lauren.
This one is from the Polo collection, and we love the blue and white gingham check print. The puffy sleeves and wrap over front are super flattering, plus the cotton fabric is perfect for a warm day. Add in a pair of Finlay sunglasses (an old fave!) and it's ace.

Looking the epitome of elegance, Carole teamed her statement dress with a fedora hat, featuring a blue ribbon, and white sandals for the 11th day of the tennis competition.
She placed her essentials in a multi-coloured clutch bag, while also sporting dainty diamond earrings and a golden necklace. Adding a touch of glamour to her appearance, she opted for a smattering of makeup and kept her locks down.
Also in attendance this afternoon was Prince Michael of Kent. The royal arrived alongside his son Lord Frederick Windsor, who sat next to his actress wife Sophie Winkleman.
Carole and Michael regularly attend Wimbledon, and in previous years, the couple have been seen in the most exclusive seating area, the Royal Box, but a spot in the box is not guaranteed; even when your daughter is Kate Middleton.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge will be out of isolation in time to attend the women's final with Prince William on Saturday, before attending the men's final on her own on Sunday, while the Duke is expected to attend the England football match at Wembley instead.
However, there is confusion over Kate being out of quarantine already, despite only being alerted a week ago.
Kate is understood to have been alerted personally and was not 'pinged' by the NHS Test and Trace app, leaving the All England Club at 5pm - significantly earlier than she has done in previous years - and missing the match involving her friend Andy Murray.

On Friday Kate spotted looking serious as she was driven out of Wimbledon's gates heading for Kensington Palace, where she was later holed up and unable to leave – even for food or medicine.
She was not permitted to have visitors in her home, including family and friends, and was even told to avoid contact with anyone she lives with as much as possible.
Her quarantine prevented the Duchess from attending the NHS' 73rd birthday celebrations with William at St Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace.
Sources stressed that she followed rules laid down at Wimbledon, which require visitors to wear a mask when moving through the grounds at SW19 but not while sitting in the stands.

The duchess is said to have had her second vaccination even though it is only just over five weeks since she released pictures of her getting her first at the Science Museum in London. Until yesterday, the guidelines stipulated an 11 or 12-week gap between jabs for under-40s not classed as vulnerable, although in some cases a shorter wait was allowed.
Her ten-day self-isolation period includes the day on which she was last in contact with the person who tested positive. If it was on Wednesday, she could, in theory, be free to return to official duties by the weekend.
MailOnline understands she was alerted about the contact with a Covid-infected person on Friday afternoon - after spending most of the day at Wimbledon with VIPs including Tim Henman, who is not self-isolating. It means she must quarantine for ten days even if she tests negative, which she has, up to four times, in the past seven days including before and after her Wembley trip with William and George.

It is not known if the Duchess of Cambridge was alerted after being 'pinged' via the NHS app, a phone call from test and trace or if she or her team was contacted personally - but William's ability to continue his duties means the covid case is unlikely to be in their inner circle.
When her isolation was revealed, Kensington Palace said in a statement: 'Last week The Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for Covid-19. Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home'.
Kensington Palace has not revealed where or when exactly the contact was only saying it was 'last week', when Kate's only two public engagements were at the All England Club on Friday and with William and George at England's historic win over Germany on Tuesday night.
Kate has spent time close to a host of VIPs including David Beckham and Ed Sheeran at Wembley and Tim Henman and Joe Wicks at Wimbledon.
But it is not known if any of them tested positive for covid, or whether the contact came via a friend, a member of staff or another parent on the school run last week.

The 37-year-old joined thousands of excited football fans this week as she watched England beat Denmark in the Euro 2020 semi-final at London's Wembley Stadium. The Duchess of Cambridge's sister was spotted with her husband James Matthews queuing up to take her place inside the stadium, along with around 60,000 other English and Danish fans. Also at the match was her brother-in-law Prince William, who was in the royal box to represent the Firm - and carry out his duties as the President of the Football Association (FA), England's footballing governing body.
Pippa is often spotted with Kate and William, particularly during Wimbledon - the two-week tennis event which concludes this weekend.
And to demonstrate their closeness, William once rushed to Pippa's aid when her plans for the evening reception of his wedding to Kate were thrown into question.
William and Kate enjoyed an iconic wedding in 2011, which was the toast of the country, with millions watching the couple exchange their vows.
But in the build-up to the special day, royal courtiers were concerned with some of Pippa's ideas for the reception.
Pippa was chosen by Kate as her Maid of Honour, and little was known about her younger sibling prior to the wedding.
In her role on the special day, some of Pippa's suggestions on what the ceremony and reception should be like did not go down well with officials inside Buckingham Palace, though.
At first, Pippa and Kate had wanted to use their own caterer for the reception, something William's father Prince Charles was unhappy about.
As he was funding the entertainment, Charles "stepped in and demanded they use his favourite", Mosimann's - headed up by Swiss chef Anton Mosimann OBE.
This "didn't go down well with the caterers Kate and her sister were intent on using" but they nevertheless bowed to Charles' request.
Speaking to the Daily Mail's Rebecca English, Pippa's desire to "turn the throne room into a nightclub also went down like a lead balloon with Palace aides, who tried to have it stopped".
In 2011, they added: “But William stepped in and insisted that he wanted the evening event to be very different from the formal champagne and canapé reception being thrown by the Queen immediately after the wedding.
“He wants it to be very young and cool, so the old guard caved in and gave their approval.”
Reflecting on the day, journalist and editor Eve Pollard hailed the impact the wedding had on people watching from the streets and at home.
She said: "This is when the British come into their own.
"We have all the equipment, we have the Household Cavalry, we have the wonderful carriage, we have those ancient Rolls Royces, and there's great spirit here.
"A spirit that you could say was evocative of 1981 and the wedding of Prince William's parents, Charles and Diana."
Kate and William's strength as a couple has continued until today, and they marked their 10-year wedding anniversary in April.
Since their marriage, they have welcomed three adorable children to the Cambridge fold - Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Prince Charles may be planning to go against a royal tradition that dates back to Queen Victoria's reign. The future king's home as monarch is in contention, and could actually give Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, an opportunity to move in early. The List narrator Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon explained what will happen when the Duke of Cambridge is king.
"In fact, after they got married, the pair moved into an apartment at Kensington Palace.
"The Duchess even redecorated it to look just as swanky as any palace you could imagine.
"However, once Prince William becomes king, their residence will change."
Ms Liwag Dixon continued: "Obviously, they'll still live in a palace.
"But their upgrade will be a lot bigger, and a whole lot more prestigious.
"In fact, ever since Queen Victoria's reign, the British monarchs have all lived in Buckingham Palace in London.
"To that end, once Prince William ascends to the throne, it's likely that he will also move in."
"His father, Prince Charles, is reportedly planning on staying at his residence, Clarence House, when he becomes king."
It’s been claimed that the Prince of Wales is hoping to open many royal palaces to the public for longer periods of time throughout the year.
Currently Buckingham Palace is only open to the public a couple of months a year: between July and October.
This is usually when the Queen is at her holiday home in Scotland.
Charles is also known to have different tastes in royal residences than his mother.
For example, she spends a lot of time at Windsor Castle, but her son is reportedly not fond of it.
Additionally, the Queen loves Balmoral in Scotland, but Charles already has his own Scottish residence, Birkhall.

The Duchess looked smart in a green dress as she took her seat in the royal box on Centre Court just before 2 p.m. to watch world number one Ashleigh Barty play number eight seed Karolina Pliskova. Today is Kate’s second appearance at the championships this year, and it has already been announced that she will also attend the men’s final tomorrow. She took over from the Queen as Patron of Wimbledon’s All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in 2016 when the monarch handed over some patronages in the year she turned 90.
Kensington Palace announced on Monday that Kate was isolating after coming into contact with COVID-19 but said that she was not experiencing any symptoms. She followed government guidelines which meant that she has to complete a 10-day isolation person, starting from when she was last in contact with the person who tested positive. The Duchess, 39, previously announced that she had received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination on May 28 at London’s Science Museum. She has since had her second dose. She also takes tests twice a week as part of the royal household’s testing program.

Prince William will have "one less thing to worry about" when it comes to travelling as king, according to royal commentators. The Duke of Cambridge will reportedly not have to provide as much proof of identification, but will still be subject to strict "security question". The List narrator Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon explained how this will differ for Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, as queen.
"But pretty much all of its members have to travel far more often that the average person.
"Whether on official duty, or to make appearances with other state officials, the royals spend plenty of time on planes.
"When Prince William becomes king in the future, he will likely travel so much more than he does as a mere prince."
Ms Liwag Dixon continued: "And he'll also be able to pack just a little lighter.
"In fact, whoever is the king or queen doesn't need a passport to travel to other countries.
"As the highest title in Britain, the king or queen is easily recognisable.
"They apparently don't need the formal piece of identification to travel."
"William will likely have to answer certain security questions before taking off.
"Still, it's one less thing for the future king to worry about."
Both the Duke and Duchess will be free of another important royal rule when they are crowned king and queen.
William won't have to bow to anyone anymore when he becomes monarch.
It is royal etiquette to bow to the Queen when you meet her, or whoever is the current British monarch.
At the moment William has to bow to all other senior family members such as his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and his father, Prince Charles.
As queen, Kate will only have to curtsy to her husband, and no one else.
