Prince Harry has entered self isolation at his California home so that he is able to fly home as soon as possible if the worst should happen to Prince Philip, it has been reported.

The Duke of Sussex has decided to stay at his £11million California mansion permanently while his grandfather is in hospital, in case of the need to return to the UK at short notice, the Mirror reports.

It is also understood that the Prince has requested regular updates on the Duke of Edinburgh's status.

The Queen's husband, 99-year-old Philip was taken to the King Edward VII Hospital in London on Tuesday as a "precautionary measure" following a discussion with his doctor.

He was reportedly "feeling unwell" and will remain in hospital for "a few days of observation" and rest.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, on Tuesday evening.

"The Duke's admission is a precautionary measure, on the advice of His Royal Highness's Doctor, after feeling unwell."

They added: "The Duke is expected to remain in hospital for a few days of observation and rest."

Prince Harry, who has reportedly already got a private jet lined up to bring him home if needed, would be tested for coronavirus before leaving the US and upon entering the country, it is understood.

The United States along with Spain are set to become the latest additions to the ‘red list’ of countries where travellers have to quarantine in hotels, it emerged today.

Members of the royal family however have special dispensation to travel, similar to diplomatic immunity, meaning the Duke would not have to quarantine if he tested negative for Covid.

His wife Meghan would face a decision whether to travel with her husband as she is understood to be five months pregnant.

Last week, the Duchess of Cambridge won a summary judgement in her privacy trial against the Mail on Sunday after the newspaper published extracts of her private letters to her father in the days before her wedding to Prince Harry.

The royal pair announced their second pregnancy on Valentine's Day.
