In a surprising twist, former royal butler Grant Harrold has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may consider moving back to the UK in the future, despite their well-documented tensions with the Royal Family. Since stepping down from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family in January 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have resided in California with their children, Archie and Lilibet. However, according to Harrold, there is a chance that they might purchase a property in the UK, primarily to accommodate Harry’s potential desire to visit more frequently.
Harrold, who previously served King Charles, shared his thoughts with the New York Post, stating, “I’d never say never, it’s always possible that one day he might want to come home, it’s possible that he might buy [a property] here if he wanted to come over [more] and Meghan didn’t want to come over. Meghan doesn’t really have any family here as such, all her family are in the States and that’s where Harry has decided he wants to set up his home.” Despite their current residence in the United States, Harrold believes that Harry will always maintain a connection with the UK and would not sever ties completely.
While acknowledging that the couple seems content in their current environment, Harrold also noted that it is “very possible” for Harry and Meghan to return to Britain together. He highlighted their previous significance as a couple within the Royal Family, emphasizing their role in modernizing the institution’s image. Harrold’s comments align with the sentiments expressed by author and journalist Tina Brown, who previously suggested that Harry and Meghan’s presence was vital in connecting with the younger generation and promoting diversity within the Royal Family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made headlines worldwide when they announced their decision to step back from their royal duties in January 2020. Their Instagram statement outlined their intention to become financially independent while continuing to support Queen Elizabeth II. The move marked a significant shift in their relationship with the Royal Family and prompted discussions about the future of the monarchy.
As the ongoing dynamics between Harry, Meghan, and the Royal Family continue to captivate public interest, the possibility of a future return to the UK raises questions about potential reconciliations and the role the couple may play in shaping the monarchy’s evolution. While the path forward remains uncertain, the speculations surrounding their potential return keep royal enthusiasts eagerly anticipating what the future holds for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
