The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly returned to the UK for the first time since the Queen’s platinum jubilee celebrations in June.
Instead of using their private jet, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opted to take the trip on a commercial airline, according to Hello! Magazine .
The couple will use their stay to visit various charities in the UK and will also travel to Germany for the event to mark the year leading up to the Invictus Games 2023 in Düsseldorf.
A spokesperson for the Sussexes confirmed their trip in August, saying at the time: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussexes, are delighted to visit a number of very important charities to them in early September.”
However, they are not expected to visit the queen, who is currently at Balmoral, or see any of the other members of the royal family, including the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge.
While not confirmed, Harry and Meghan are believed to be staying at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, just a 15-minute walk from Adelaide Cottage, where Prince William and Kate Middleton recently moved .
During their last trip to the UK, they attended the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral as part of the platinum jubilee celebrations.
The event was her first official joint appearance with other members of the royal family since the couple stepped down in early 2020 and moved to the US.
Harry and Meghan’s trip took place days after the Duchess gave an interview to The Cut , in which she reflected on her and Harry’s strained relationship with the British tabloid press and the royal family.
In the cover story, he said that Harry felt he had “lost” his father in the process of stepping down as a senior member of the royal family.
However, when asked if there was “room” for forgiveness between her and the royal family, Meghan said: “I think forgiveness is really important. It takes a lot more energy not to forgive.”
“But it takes a lot of effort to forgive. It is true that I have made an active effort, especially knowing that I can say anything.
“I have a lot to say until I don’t. Do you like that? Sometimes, as they say, the silent part is still part of the song.”
Harry and Meghan unsettled the royal family after they gave Oprah Winfrey an explosive interview in 2020, which included claims that a member of the royal household had raised concerns about the color of their son Archie ‘s skin while she was still pregnant . .
Meghan also said she had suicidal thoughts while working as a member of the royal family , but palace staff ignored her pleas for help.
On Sunday 4 September, Harry and Meghan will travel to Manchester for the One Young World 2022 Manchester summit and are expected to meet delegates who are “doing an outstanding job on gender equality”.
They will travel to Germany on Tuesday 6th September for the Invictus Games 2023 pre-game event of the year in Düsseldorf, before returning to the UK for the WellChild Awards on Thursday 8th September.
