Prince Harry arrived in London on Friday, June 25, to begin his five days of self-isolation ahead of attending the unveiling of a statue of his late mother Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birth anniversary on July 1.

The Duke of Sussex landed in time to serve out his 'amber list' quarantine at his former Windsor home on what is his second trip to the UK this year, the first one since his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral ten weeks ago. Before he landed at London's Heathrow Airport on Friday, one traveler from the same Los Angeles to London flight that the Duke of Sussex was in, reportedly saw Harry in his sweats, dozing while seated in first class.

'When do you see a Prince in sweats?'

The passenger, identified only by her first name, Natalie, told Daily Mail that they could have sworn they saw someone that looked like "Prince Harry in sweats" onboard their flight. "I was sat in business and I woke up after a nap and got up to stretch my legs. I was walking up and down and I could have sworn I saw a guy in first class, in sweats, asleep," she said. "It might have been him? But then, it might not have been? When do you see a Prince in sweats? I told my friend I saw someone that looked a lot like him, but she did not believe me at all. If it was him, that's crazy. That's the most English thing ever - sharing a flight to London with Prince Harry."

According to the outlet, a convoy of royal vehicles including a Range Rover as well as a police escort accompanied Harry as he was driven to Frogmore Cottage, the same place he stayed in to attend the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral, to begin his quarantine. Typically, those arriving in England from amber list countries (nations perceived by the UK to be under the impact of COVID-19) must normally quarantine for ten days but the period can end early under 'test to release' if they pay for a Covid-19 test on day five, in addition to a test on day two.

Frogmore Cottage is located within the grounds of Windsor Castle and was once Harry and Meghan's main residence in the United Kingdom. Since they now live in Montecito, California, along with their son Archie, Frogmore Cottage has been given to Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. "Eugenie and Harry have always been close and they chat privately all the time,” a source earlier told HELLO! “It was Harry who suggested she and Jack could use Frogmore Cottage because it is much bigger than their cottage at Kensington Palace. It is a case of one family member reaching out to another.”

But Frogmore Cottage, part of Home Park, Windsor, is a fitting choice for Harry because the place allows for increased privacy. Frogmore House is where Harry and Meghan hosted their wedding reception in May 2018, while Frogmore Cottage is situated at the front of the property. It is categorized as a Grade-II building and is believed to feature five bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, and a nursery. In 2019, the house was renovated and reportedly cost the Sovereign Grant a total of $3.3 million. 

Following Harry's arrival, a Kensington Palace spokesman told Daily Mail: "Prince William and Prince Harry will attend a small event to mark the unveiling of a statue they commissioned of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace on Thursday, July 1. In addition to close family of Diana, Princess of Wales, members of the statue committee, the sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, and garden designer, Pip Morrison, will also be present. Further details about the statue and garden will be provided on July 1."
