Meghan Markle will not be returning to the UK with Prince Harry next month, according to a royal correspondent.
- Prince Harry is due to return to the UK to attend the memorial for his mother Princess Diana.
- Meghan Markle will reportedly not be accompanying, following the birth of their daughter Lilibet Diana earlier this month.
- This royal news (opens in new tab) comes after it was reported that Harry and Meghan shared the first picture of baby Lilibet with the royal family in a rather surprising way (opens in new tab).
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their second child together (opens in new tab), Lilibet Diana (opens in new tab) on the 4th of June. The couple was expected to return to the UK next month, but royal correspondents have confirmed that Meghan will not be joining Prince Harry.
Harry is set to fly to the UK to attend a memorial for Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday. A statue is being unveiled (opens in new tab) in her honour at Kensington Palace. It is thought Harry and Prince William will attend the memorial together (opens in new tab).
The Daily Telegraph's royal correspondent, Victoria Wood, took to Twitter to report that sources confirmed that Meghan will not be attending the long-awaited event with Harry.
It is most likely that this is due to the fact that the Duchess of Sussex gave birth just weeks ago.
Similarly, Meghan did not attend Prince Philip’s funeral in April because she was pregnant and advised by doctors not to fly.
Sadly the royal family is yet to meet baby Lilibet in person due to the fact the Sussexes now live in LA, having stepped back (opens in new tab) from royal life in 2020.
Kate Middleton shared the sad news at the G7 summit that she had not yet met Lilibet, though Harry did reportedly share a sweet gesture (opens in new tab) with her when he texted her that Lilibet had been born.
Prince Harry and Meghan are also believed to have shared the first pictures of Lilibet with the family (opens in new tab) via a Whatsapp group.
Prince Harry will be returning to the UK for the first time since the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, and it’s been reported that the Queen has invited him for lunch at Windsor Castle (opens in new tab) to "talk things through".
