Meghan Markle is unlikely to join Prince Harry if he returns to the U.K., according to a report.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moved to the United States after announcing that they would be stepping down from their royal duties. However, they are expected to return to Great Britain this year, but the duchess might not join the prince.
Meghan Markle unlikely to return to the UK
Prince Harry is expected to reunite with the royal family for the first after giving up his royal duties. However, multiple sources told Daily Mail that his wife, Meghan Markle, is unlikely to travel with him.
Insiders believed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s plans to travel back to the U.K. have not been finalized yet due to the travel restrictions. However, in their understanding, Prince Harry will take the trip alone. He will reunite with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince Williams sans his wife and son, Archie.
“It should be strongly stressed that there is still an element of uncertainty about this because of the unpredictable Covid situation, but the understanding is the duke is more than likely to come back on his own,” a source told Daily Mail.
“This is a personal and practical decision by the couple, but it would certainly help officials navigate what is likely to be a fairly tricky situation.”
Markle won’t travel with her husband for “personal and practical” reasons and should not be taken as a “snub,” sources claimed. The tipsters believed that Markle’s absence would save the royal family from diplomatic headache.
Royal couple expected to attend royal events
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were expected to attend key royal events this year, including Trooping The Colour, the Queen’s official celebration for her 95th birthday, in June. In the same month, Prince Prince Philip will be turning 100 years old.
Prince Harry is also due to reunite with his brother, Prince William, in July for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue, which they commissioned in memory of the late Princess of Wales at Kensington Palace.
The Sussexes after Megxit
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are happy with their decision to leave their royal lives behind. In fact, they have no regret about it and actually feel rewarded, especially after signing a multi-million production deal with Netflix.
However, their popularity has since dropped after they turned their backs on the British royalty. The couple was featured in the Special Edition Walkers Shortbread treats. The biscuits were available in £16 a tin at London’s Harrods and Selfridges.
Unfortunately, it didn’t sell. So, the treats had been downgraded from the shelves of Harrods to the bargain store TJ Maxx for only £3.99. Royal expert Ingrid Seward also said magazines featuring the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the cover no longer sell.
