Harry made a very brief appearance at King Charles’s coronation

Prince Harry prepares to return to the UK – will Meghan Markle join him?

As he traveled back to the city for the King’s coronation last week, Prince Harry had a hectic 24-hour stay.

He arrived in the UK on Friday morning, and by 2pm on Saturday, as his family was en route to Buckingham Palace for their balcony appearance, he was already on his way to Heathrow.

However, it appears that the Prince is getting ready for another trip to his native country, and fans are wondering if his wife Meghan Markle will accompany him.

When the couple traveled to Britain for the late Queen’s funeral in September 2022, Meghan was last there.

But she opted to stay in Montecito, California, with their kids rather than go to the coronation on May 6. The historic occasions coincided with Archie’s fourth birthday.

During Harry’s upcoming visit, he will testify in a High Court trial against a publisher of a tabloid newspaper.

Harry is one of several well-known people who have filed lawsuits against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) regarding alleged illegal information gathering at its publications.

The estate of the late singer George Michael, singer Cheryl, ex-footballer and television presenter Ian Wright, and actor Ricky Tomlinson are among the other famous people involved.

Harry was one of the “representative” claimants chosen as “test cases” to go to trial from the larger group of claimants.

Former Coronation Street actress Nikki Sanderson, ex-wife of comedian Paul Whitehouse Fiona Wightman, and actor Michael Turner are the other defendants chosen for trial.

MGN denies the allegations, claiming that some of them were made too late.

The claimants’ attorneys announced last month that all of their witnesses would be testifying in person.

This implies that the Duke, who is scheduled to provide testimony in June, will pay the High Court a second visit this year.

The trial follows Harry’s unexpected attendance at a preliminary hearing in his separate lawsuit against Associated Newspapers Limited, the owner of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, at the Royal Courts of Justice in March.

Harry has previously stated that returning to the UK with his family is too risky.

He took a British Airways flight on Saturday to attend his father’s coronation; the flight arrived at LAX at 7.30 p.m. local time (3.30 a.m. UK time), which allowed him to make it home to Montecito in time to see Archie on his special day.

The Duke, who played no official role at the coronation, looked dapper in a service suit rather than a conventional military uniform, even though he continued to wear his military decorations.

He can no longer dress in his uniform for royal occasions because he is no longer a working member of the royal family.

Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank was seated next to Harry in the third row of seats in the Westminster Abbey, closest to the aisle. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Beatrice, and Prince Andrew were also in that row.
