For the past six months, the press has discussed a possible visit of the Sussex to the UK in March 2021. Experts called the coming month a turning point in the fate of the Duke and Duchess: a year after Megsit, BCS members had to determine the further status of Harry and Meghan in the British monarchy (read also: Reckoning Hour: Why March of next year will be a difficult time for Harry and Megan) …
However, information recently appeared that the prince could return to his homeland without his wife and even without a son.
A source close to the couple told the Daily Mail that the Duchess is unlikely to return to the UK with her husband: "Prince Harry will almost certainly travel to Britain alone to see the family for the first time since moving to California." The firstborn of the couple, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, will most likely also stay at home with Megan.
Insiders emphasize that the couple made this decision not because of Megan's disregard for BCS. "The choice was dictated by practical reasons," one source told the Daily Mail, "There is still an element of uncertainty due to the Covid-19 situation."
According to insiders, the decision of the Sussex is also not connected with the Queen's personal dislike for the Duchess. One source noted that Elizabeth II "made it clear that Harry and Meghan are still beloved family members and will be welcome at family events."
However, in reality, everything is a little more complicated. “On a personal level, everyone, starting with the Queen, would surely love the return of Harry, Meghan and Archie. But on the official one - their appearance can become a serious headache for the palace, "says the royal commentator for News.com.au Daniela Elser.
Therefore, it is quite possible that the return with an incomplete composition is a diplomatic move of the couple, designed not to aggravate the already tense situation between them and the rest of the BCS.
Recently, many have asked a more global question: is it possible that someday the couple will return to the UK, not temporarily, but permanently. Experts have a clear answer to this question. “Meghan Markle is American. When she returned to the United States, she said very clearly: "It's good to be at home." I think the chances that she will return someday are zero,”biographer Sean Smith told Express.co.uk.
The writer Ingrid Seward even believes that the Duchess has a personal grudge against the whole country: “She [Megan] was never a big fan of Great Britain and felt that the British did not understand her,” the expert said in a comment to Fox News. This fully explains the reluctance of Sussex to visit her husband's homeland in March (read also: No turning back: why Megan would rather divorce Harry than return to England).
