Recently, it was reported that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are planning to return to the UK to reunite with the royal family for the first time after their move to the United States. Elizabeth II invited them to the official celebration of her birthday, which is scheduled for June 12. However, now the arrival of Meghan Markle is in question.
The decision of the Duchess of Sussex not to accompany Prince Harry on the trip is not at all connected with a dismissive attitude towards upcoming events. These are personal and practical considerations for the couple – they would like to avoid embarrassing situations with the royal family. In addition, such a decision by the spouses will save officials from the ambiguity in building communication with Meghan Markle. In addition, it is not yet entirely clear whether it will be possible to come to the UK, as the situation with COVID-19 is unpredictable.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were planning to attend key royal events in June. In addition to celebrating the Queen’s 95th birthday, there are plans to celebrate Prince Philip’s 100th birthday. Also in July, Harry is due to arrive in England for the unveiling of a monument to Princess Diana at Kensington Palace, which was ordered by brothers William and Harry. In connection with such events, there was concern that the appearance of a couple would cause public and media excitement, which could distract from the importance of the events.
