After Prince Harry arrived at LAX International airport in order to make his way to the United Kingdom, the prince and his driver saw an airport car chase ensue which saw two runways shut down.

As reported by the Mail Online, Prince Harry arrived in a chauffeur-driven vehicle at LAX International Airport on 24 June, around the same time a car was being pursued by police. It’s said a male driver broke through a fence at the FedEx cargo facility and then headed west on an airfield road. The driver is said to have been detained without injuries, and airport police noted that an investigation is underway.

According to the New Zealand Herald, Prince Harry is expected to touch down at London Heathrow Airport sometime on 25 June to begin his self-isolation ahead of attending the unveiling of a statue of his late mother Princess Diana next week. Meghan Markle is remaining at their mansion in Montecito with their newborn second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born 21 days ago at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

The guest list

The guest list for the statue unveiling (which has been drastically reduced because of COVID-19 rules) will see a handful of guests attend, including Prince Harry, Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and some of Diana’s relatives.

The brothers are due to put aside ongoing tension to host the ceremony at Kensington Palace, Princess Diana’s former home. This after Prince Harry and Meghan gave an all-tell interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

The mediator

Kate Middleton is expected to help William and Harry put on a united front, reports say after she agreed to attend the ceremony. An insider said the 39-year-old Duchess of Cambridge had seen the project since the beginning and would want to be there to support her husband. 

It comes after it was claimed Kate and William did not have a sit-down conversation with Harry after Prince Philip’s funeral earlier this year because they feared details would be leaked. Royal historian Robert Lacey said the chat did not happen because Kate and William were worried their comments would be given to the press.

Ongoing tension

Earlier this year, Prince Harry underwent a therapy session on camera in an episode of his mental health docuseries. In the episode, he demonstrated a technique known as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR therapy. The therapy was designed to help patients work through traumatic memories associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, but it’s more recently been used to treat anxiety disorders as well, reports Business Insider.

Harry said he uses the treatment to address the “worried, concerned” feeling he always experiences when flying back to the UK.

“For me, London is a trigger, unfortunately, because of what happened to my mum [Princess Diana], and because of what I experienced, and what I saw,” Harry said on the show.
