Prince Harry is attending a secret charity event as a surprise guest today.

The Duke of Sussex landed in London on Friday so he could leave isolation 24 hours before Princess Diana's statue unveiling tomorrow and make an appearance at the bash.

A source told The Sun: "Organisers have moved Heaven and Earth to make this happen. It's been carefully choreographed."

The Queen removed Prince Harry's royal patronages and honorary military titles under the final Megxit agreement in February.

But he and his wife Meghan Markle have kept their private links to charities.

A spokesman for the couple said at the time: "As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world.

"[They] have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role."

Yesterday, Harry was seen in his first official appearance since landing in the UK last week in a pre-recorded speech seemingly filmed at his California mansion.

His surprise contribution came at a virtual ceremony for the Diana Award, a charity which runs anti-bullying and mentoring programmes for youngsters.

Harry told them that his mother would be proud of them "for living your authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others".

He added: "She believed that young people have the power to change the world."

Harry and brother William will unveil a statue of Princess Di at Kensington Palace on Thursday – what would have been their mum's 60th birthday.

The Duke of Sussex isolated at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, while Meghan remained in LA at their £11million Montecito home with three-week-old daughter Lilibet and son Archie, two.

It has been reported that Harry faced a meeting with the Queen as soon as he arrived back in London last week.

Her Majesty was spotted heading towards Frogmore Cottage just minutes after her grandson was whisked inside by security.

The Duke of Sussex is said to have met his grandmother several times outside when he was back for the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral in April, but this is the first time Harry has returned since blasting the Royal Family on his mental health TV show, accusing them of "neglect".

He criticised his father Prince Charles and claimed he moved his family to the States to "break the cycle of pain".

Meanwhile, a green box has appeared to shield the Princess Diana memorial statue ahead of its unveiling tomorrow.

The tribute is to be revealed at Kensington Gardens, behind her former Kensington Palace home in London.

It is believed to have been installed in secret before being secured with a padlock.
