According to The Sun, Prince Harry and Meghan have offered to fly from their home in California to the United Kingdom to meet with the Queen if she agrees. Meghan would be returning to the country for the first time since Megxit in early 2020.
Following the couple’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry is said to have made “olive branch” calls to his family as they prepare to christen four-month-old Lilibet at Windsor Castle.
Senior royal staff are said to be astounded by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s request, according to The Sun.
“This offer has been made by Harry and Meghan, but many people are taken aback by their audacity. They may genuinely want to see the Queen, but given what they’ve put her through this year, it’s a breath of fresh air “According to the UK tabloid, a source told them.
“So far, Her Majesty’s staff has not responded. In fact, there has been talk about Christmas – and whether or not Harry and Meghan should be invited after declining one last year,” the insider continued, adding that the Queen is “very fond of Harry” and “would love to see Lilibet and her brother Archie.” “..
The monarch is also anticipating the publication of Harry’s candid memoir, which is expected to be a “intimate and heartbreaking” account of his life as a royal, next year.
There are concerns that the memoir will overshadow the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which is also scheduled for next year, with some UK news outlets reporting that Harry and Meghan may not be invited.
