Meghan Markle may 'never return' to Britain with Prince Harry - Royal expert

Meghan Markle may not "ever come to Britain again" according to a royal expert who thinks the Duchess of Sussex will avoid Queen Elizabeth II's upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations. 

Royal author Roy Jobson told US Weekly Meghan remained "unpopular" with the Royal Family following the events of Megxit last year and the subsequent bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

"I’m not sure Meghan will ever come to Britain again," Jobson said. "She’s not popular [right] now."

Jobson felt "sure" that Prince Harry "thinks he will be there" for the Platinum Jubilee, a celebration that honors seven decades of the reigning monarch’s service to the Commonwealth, but that it would be "quite awkward" considering the Duke of Sussex's upcoming tell-all memoir.

"Within months he is going to have a book coming out probably attacking the Royal Family," Jobson said. 

"Who knows, he says he never will but I am sure the publishers, after paying all that money, will want something for their buck." 

In fact, Jobson felt the looming release of Harry's book would make Meghan's attendance "hypocritical", given the former Suits star's history of public accusations against the institution

"The idea of her standing next to the Queen doting on her when you have got a book coming in which you’re going to spill more dirty linen in public does seem a little hypocritical," he said. 

Jobson says family tensions should be firmly under wraps during the celebration, as all eyes will be on the Royal Family for the historic milestone. 

"The focus should not be on whether Meghan's happy or not, or whether Harry is looking the wrong way from his brother [Prince William]… The queen deserves more than that," he said.

Earlier this month, The Sun reported that Harry and Meghan were planning a trip to Britain, and had requested a meeting with the Queen, offering to fly from their new home in California in order to introduce her to their daughter Lilibet. 

Senior royal staff were reportedly stunned by the "sheer nerve" of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's request, but a source claimed the Queen remained "very fond of Harry" and "would love to see Lilibet and her brother Archie".
