Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to return to London
Last week, reports emerged that Prince Harry is set to return to London.
According to The Sun, a source has claimed that royal staff at Windsor Castle, near where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s UK home Frogmore Cottage is located, were “told to prepare for the possibility Harry could come back”.
“They are told that it could be within weeks but Meghan’s name was not mentioned,” the source added.
However, it’s always been in the couple’s plans to return to London, albeit not full-time.
Upon their announcement they were stepping down from public royal life, Prince Harry and Meghan, along with their son Archie, have remained in North Canada – firstly Canada before they relocated to California.
But it was always in their plans to split their time between North America and the UK.
“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in their statement back in January. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter.”
However, this plan to “balance their time” between both countries was very likely put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Vogue.com, this is exactly the case. An apparent source told the publication that the family would “have already been back in the UK For events like Beatrice’s wedding and Trooping of the Colour” if it had not been for travel restrictions imposed due to the pandemic.
Vanity Fair also recently reported the couple will be set to return to the UK as they are set to face The Mail on Sunday in court amidst Meghan’s legal battle against them – this is set to begin on January 11, 2021.
At this point, it’s not a case if the Sussexes will return to the UK, but when and for how long.
