Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to stay at their former home of Frogmore Cottage during their UK visit,  sparking hopes of a royal reunion as William and Kate's 'new home' is just five minutes away.

Prince William and Harry could be set to reunite next month as it’s been announced that Harry and Meghan are returning to the UK, for the first time since the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - and are expected to stay very close to the Cambridges.

While it is still unknown whether their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, aged one, will be joining Prince Harry and Meghan on the trip, it has been reported that the Sussexes will be staying just five minutes from Prince William and Kate’s new Windsor residence.

According to the Sun,  Harry and Meghan will be returning to their former home of Frogmore Cottage, which is just 800 meters from Adelaide Cottage. Reports claim William and Kate have recently reallocated to the estate from Kensington Palace, to be closer to the Queen.

The proximity of the couples has sparked hopes of a royal reunion, though sources claim their ‘busy diaries’ could prevent this.

An insider told the publication that thus far there are ‘no plans’ of a meet-up, with even the Queen potentially missing out on seeing the pair, though it has not yet been ruled out. They explained, “It is expected family conversations will take place to see if there is any space in their diaries — but there is a lot on, especially for the Queen.”

The couple will be attending an event in Manchester on the 5th of September, before heading to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event, before returning again to the UK for the WellChild Awards on the 8th. Sadly it seems this short stint will not leave much time, if any, for any family reunions.

The Cambridges’ upcoming trip to the US is also a very similar story, as hopes of a reunion were dashed after sources claimed their schedules would be ‘too busy’ for visit to Harry and Meghan’s LA home.

Royal fans will have to wait and see if a reunion is to be...
