Prince Harry has returned to his home in California after reuniting with his brother Prince William to unveil a statue of their mother, Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday.

The Duke of Sussex was spotted making his way to the airport after attending the highly anticipated ceremony in Kensington Palace's Sunken Garden. The unveiling was the first time Prince Harry and Prince William have been pictured in public together since they attended Prince Philip's funeral back in April.

This comes after the sad news was announced that Meghan Markle's uncle, Michael Markle, has passed away at the age of 82, which may be a reason why Prince Harry has made such a quick return to be with his family. According to Hello!, the Duchess of Sussex will mourn his death privately in her home in Montecito, which she shares with Prince Harry and their two young children, Archie (2) and newborn Lilibet.

Prince Harry and Prince William's relationship has reportedly been strained over recent months, with the former describing their relationship as one of "space" in a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

Despite their difficult relationship, it was lovely to see the brothers come together to celebrate their mother's life and legacy, unveiling a statue in her honour by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, which has been in the works since 2017.

The brothers released a joint statement explaining the significance of the statue to them. "Today, on what would have been our Mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better," William and Harry said.

"Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy."
