Prince Harry expressed his interest in returning to the UK with his family. However, some doubt if his wife, Meghan Markle, is on board with his plans.
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Not On The Same Page?
The Duke of Sussex has attracted media attention when he asked for a jury review after UK's Home Office denied his request to personally pay for police protection twice. Prince Harry said he wanted to visit his home country with his wife Meghan Markle and their kids, Archie and Lili, but felt that it was too dangerous. So, he offered to pay for full police protection to ensure their safety.
There were also reports that he had already reached out to his father, Prince Charles, and they have "friendly video calls." Prince Charles is reportedly excited to meet Prince Harry and Markle's kids. He was "desperate to see his grandchildren. He wants to spend time with Archie and Lilibet, which he really does miss."
According to a report, Prince Harry seems to want to bury the hatchet with the royal family. However, some aren't sure if Markle wants the same.
There are rumors that the Duchess of Sussex has different views. While Prince Harry wants to come home and reunite with his family, Markle allegedly prefers to stay away from them.
Prince Harry Use Security Threats Because Meghan Markle Doesn't Want To Return To The UK?
According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to join the royal family in spring for Prince Philip's memorial service. However, there are speculations that Prince Harry only brought up the security threat as an excuse to skip the event because his wife doesn't want to return to his home country.
"I've been saying for a year that Meghan Markle will never return to the UK. This is the perfect excuse," a senior royal journalist claimed per Geo.TV.
Royal biographer Angela Levin shares the same idea. According to her, Prince Harry's latest move "certainly gets Meghan out of coming over for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations." Yes, aside from the late Duke of Edinburgh's memorial, the Queen will be celebrating her 70-year of service.
Royal commentator Robert Jobson doubts that Markle will ever return to the UK. According to her, the duchess is no longer popular there.
"I’m not sure Meghan will ever come to Britain again," Jobson told Us Weekly Tuesday. "She’s not popular [right] now."
Meanwhile, Prince Harry already returned to England twice last year. First, for Prince Philip's funeral in April. He flew to his home country again in June for the unveiling of Princess Diana's statue. It remains unclear if Prince Harry will attend Prince Phili's memorial and the Queen's Platinum Jubilee alone or skip them.
