Prince Harry will fly to the UK to attend his grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral — but won’t be accompanied by Meghan Markle, it was confirmed Saturday.

As The Post revealed, Harry’s heavily pregnant wife had been keen to join him.

Despite making “every effort” to accompany her husband, Markle — who is expecting a baby girl in the early summer — did not receive medical clearance to fly from her doctor, sources revealed.

It will be the first time Harry has been back to his homeland since the couple quit the royal family last year and moved to California.

And it will be the first time he comes face to face with his family following the explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which Harry and Markle made allegations of racism within the royal family.

Markle also claimed she was so miserable she was suicidal — and no-one helped.

Harry also told Oprah his father Prince Charles and brother Prince William are “trapped” within their senior roles.

However, Harry talked of his love for his grandmother, The Queen, and a source said Friday he would not miss the funeral for the world.

“Harry will, of course, be there, no matter how difficult relations are between the Sussexes and the family,” a UK royal source told The Post following Prince Philip’s death at 99.

He will be following COVID-19 protocols for travel to and from the UK as well as during his time in the country, sources confirmed.
