Prince Harry is reportedly planning another trip home to the United Kingdom this fall—and his wife, Meghan Markle, may even accompany him.
Harry returned to California this weekend after a quick trip back across the pond to attend the unveiling of a new statue in honor of his late mother, Princess Diana, at Kensington Palace in London. The unveiling, which was held on what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday, had to be scaled down from the royals’ original plan due to COVID-19 restrictions.
According to the Daily Mail, “Kensington Palace has ambitions for another, larger event to be held in September that could welcome the project’s donors and charity leaders.” The paper reports that “it is hoped Harry could attend with wife Meghan,” but notes that sources close to the royal family acknowledge that the date may be too soon after the birth of the couple’s second child, Lilibet Diana, to allow Meghan to travel.
Royal sources seem hopeful that the September event could be the right time for “peace talks” between Harry and his brother, Prince William, who reportedly didn’t have much time to work on their relationship during the Duke of Sussex’s most recent visit.
“It is a step forward but this was not the time or the place,” a source told The Sun. “September is a date penciled in for a more extensive celebration of the statue, and Harry will want to return.”
