The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are planning to take their children, Archie and Lilibet to U.K. for Christmas, a royal expert has reported.
In an interview with Closer magazine, royal author and expert Katie Nicholl said, “Christmas is being seen as an opportunity for the duke and duchess to reunite with the British royal family and introduce them to their daughter, who was born in June this year.
"When Harry and Meghan left, they made it clear they didn’t want to give up their home in Britain. They still have Frogmore Cottage and their plan was to come back to the UK,” Nicholl said.
"Christmas is being looked at as an opportunity. There may be a softening, which could pave the way for a healing of the family rift,” she went on to say.
It will mark Markle’s first since the pair resigned from full-time royal duties and moved to the US in 2020. While Harry has only returned twice since then — for grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral in April, and an unveiling of a statue of his mother Princess Diana in July.
"It’s certainly what the Queen wants. Prince Charles would like to see his grandchildren. A meet-up suggests they hope to move on and sort things out,” Nicholl added.
