Meghan Markle and Prince Harry returned to the US last week after their two-week stay in Europe. Initially, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had planned to stay for just under a week, but their schedule changed following news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s ailing health and subsequent death. Meghan and Harry stayed in the UK until September 19, the day of the late monarch’s funeral, joining the rest of the Royal Family for the final event of the 10-day mourning period.
It is understood that the Duke and Duchess had no plans to visit members of the Royal Family during their time in the UK. Their return came amid reports of continuing tension between the Sussexes and the Windsors.
However, grief appeared to bring the royals together with both Meghan and Harry standing alongside their UK-based counterparts during several important events.
Now, a royal commentator has claimed the Duke and Duchess may make more frequent visits to the UK as King Charles III is keen to heal the rift with the Sussexes.
Royal historian and author Gareth Russell appeared on this week’s episode of the Royally Us podcast. He said: “I do think the King very much wants to heal the rift with Harry and Meghan. We saw that olive branch held out during his first national address, so maybe we will see an attempt to coordinate more regular visits between Harry and Meghan back to Britain.
