Meghan Markle 'to stay home in US while Prince Harry visits UK

Meghan Markle may not return to Britain with Prince Harry during several planned visits later this year, according to reports.

The Duchess of Sussex is said to be unlikely to accompany her husband at a number of functions this summer, the Daily Mail claims - although the move is not said to be a snub.

Sources said the choice has been made for several reasons and her absence will avoid the inevitable public and media hype a joint appearance would bring.

One told the paper: "This is a personal and practical decision by the couple, but it would certainly help officials navigate what is likely to be a fairly tricky situation."

Insiders also stressed that the situation is still very much up in the air due to the ongoing global pandemic and other factors.

It is thought that Harry, 36, will return to Britain to see his relatives in June and July, when his grandfather Prince Philip turns 100 and a statue erected in tribute to his late mother Diana is unveiled.

The Sussexes famously quit Britain - and their roles as working royals - last year in an caustic split dubbed 'Megxit' by commentators.

There final official engagement was at Westminster Abbey in March, at which Harry and brother Prince William were seen to barely acknowledge each other.

Harry and Meghan, 39, moved to North America with son Archie, one, after leaving Britain and have since secured lucrative deals with powerhouse companies like Netflix and Spotify.

The prince is expected to stay at Frogmore House upon his return, reports suggest, which the couple have lent to Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank.
