Prince Harry safety scare as cops chase car on LAX runway just as Duke arrives to fly to UK for Diana statue unveiling

PRINCE Harry arrived at Los Angeles International Airport to head to the UK for the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue just as a car chase was unfolding.

Harry was seen arriving at the airport in a black SUV on Thursday evening where he took off for London to attend the unveiling next week.

The Duke's arrival at LAX coincided with a driver breaking through a fence at a FedEx cargo facility around 6pm and leading police on a chase before being detained.

Police said that there were no injuries, but two runways were shut down as the chase was unfolding.

Video of the incident showed a massive police presence at the airport.

Harry's flight to London took off just 45 minutes later.

It's unclear at this time what the driver's motive was or if they were attempting to reach any flight or person at the airport.

Harry and brother Prince William will appear together at the unveiling of the statue of their mother on July 1, on what would have been her 60th birthday.

The statue unveiling will be the first time Harry and William appear together since the funeral of their grandfather, Prince Phillip.

It is only the second time the brothers will appear together since Harry and wife Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The pair is expected to walk together to the statue, which will be placed in the gardens at Kensington Palace, before they each give a speech.

William's wife Kate Middleton is said to be acting as something of a mediator between the two brothers to help them put on a united front at the unveiling.

Sources have said that Kate has seen the Princess Di statue project through from the beginning and despite any tension between the Royals and Harry, they all "want the day to be solely about the Princess of Wales’s enduring legacy."

The Diana memorial was commissioned by both Harry and William in 2017 to "recognize her positive impact in the United Kingdom and around the world."

It will be installed at the Sunken Gardens, which was believed to be Diana's favorite spot on the Kensington Palace grounds.
