Prince Harry was reportedly spotted at dinner with philanthropist and heiress Wallis Annenberg while the Queen celebrated her first birthday without her husband on 73 years after he was laid to rest last weekend.

The Duke of Sussex, 36 reportedly ate lunch with the 81-year-old at Hollywood’s most secretive hotspot just four days after the funeral of Prince Philip, who died at the age of 99 on Friday, 10 April.

The pair met at a restaurant called San Vicente Bungalows, an exclusive club in West Hollywood on Wednesday after he returned to the US to be with wife Meghan Markle and his son Archie.

A source told Page Six: “They sat outside, far from other people, and Harry came in wearing a mask”.

The club has a strict policy against mobile phones, photos and media leaks, with permanent expulsion threatened if these rules are broken, however the insider confessed that it was “just too juicy – I had to divulge.”

This comes after predictions that Prince Harry would stay in the UK for Her Majesty’s birthday occasion after many of the royal family arranged visits to make sure she wasn’t alone so soon after the Duke of Edinburgh’s passing.

Harry returned to the States however, after a nine-day visit to the UK for his grandfather’s funeral which garnered over 10.6 million views from the BBC and a further 2.14 million from ITV this weekend.

It is understood that Prince Harry was eager to return to his son Archie and Meghan Markle, who was unable to attend the funeral after her doctor advised against it so far along in her pregnancy.

Wallis Annenberg currently focuses her energy into her family organisation, The Annenberg Foundation, which works with projects involved in climate change, animal welfare and social justice in America, all issues that the prince is passionate about.

Her late father, Walter Annenberg was the US ambassador to Britain under Richard Nixon as well as a close friend of Prince Charles and other members of the royal family.

The pair share a connection through the popular streaming service, Netflix, which arranged deals with both Annenberg and Harry and Meghan separately.

The streaming platform commissioned the launch of a diversity and inclusion report with the help of USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative which aims to track the rate of inclusion both on and off screen, including gender, race, sexuality and disability.

Netflix have also signed a multiyear deal with Harry and Meghan in order to create their first series, ‘Heart of Invictus’ surrounding the Invictus games Harry founded in 2014.
