According to reports, Meghan Markle is unlikely to come back to the United Kingdom with Prince Harry when he visits over the summer for the first time since Megxit.
The Sussexes have not yet finalised their plans due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic. However, an insider has claimed the understanding is the Duke is more likely to come back on his own for the Queen and Prince Philip’s birthdays.
They said that the decision would be for personal and practical reasons and not be seen as a snub.
Another source told a news outlet there was concern the Duchess’s appearance could overshadow any occasion with drama, and they said that if Meghan comes back, the feeling is that it would overshadow the moment and people would only be looking at the drama of it all.
They said that of course, she would be welcome, but a decision not to come would delay that problem for a while at least.
A third insider has agreed the decision would spare the need for a certain measure of diplomacy as there’s still a great deal of distance between Harry and numerous family members, especially his brother.
They claim no one wants a repeat of the Commonwealth Service which Harry and William supposedly hardly spoke at.
However, the source added that her Majesty made it pretty clear when they left the UK that Harry and Meghan were much-loved members of her own family and would be very welcome to frequent family events.
Harry is set to attend the unveiling of a statue of his mother Princess Diana if he’s able to return in June.
It comes after the Duke, who spent 10 years in the armed forces, was purportedly refused his request for a wreath to be placed at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday on his behalf.
The Sussexes have purchased an £11 million home in California since leaving the United Kingdom and signed deals with Netflix and Spotify.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have declined to comment. However, some have said that Harry doesn’t have to travel to the United Kingdom and that it was nothing personal and he should stay away, and that if he does travel here, he should be made to isolate for 10 days when he does get here.
We all know it seems a long way off before Harry gets here, but then I doubt that either the US or the UK will be COVID free by then. Or is it one rule for them and another rule for the rest of us?
I guess Archie won’t come over either, which is a shame because his family are missing out on him, but then perhaps that’s why they took him to America, to save him.
Harry should know better than to travel, he should stay home, protect the NHS and save lives! But then he’s got blue blood and normal rules don’t apply to them as they do to us peasants, or possibly he’s desperate for an eye test, but then some would say he’s too late for an eye test because he married that terrible American starlet.
And she probably won’t ever set foot in Britain again, because she’s got what she wanted and that’s it, but she does have the worst PR, or she just won’t listen to her PR, and when staff begin leaving your employ, it speaks volumes.
