Meghan Markle will not want to return to the UK in the future and face curtseying to the Princess of Wales, a royal biographer has suggested.
Andrew Morton, who collaborated with Diana, Princess of Wales on his 1992 book Diana: Her True Story, ruled out a move back from the US for Meghan and the Duke of Sussex.
Asked whether he thought the Sussexes would ever come back to Britain, Andrew told Sky News’ Sunday Morning With Trevor Phillips: “What, and have Meghan Markle curtseying to Kate Middleton?
“I don’t think so. I don’t see that as a runner. They’ve got their own lives in California.”
Royal Highnesses bow and curtsey only to majesties, so Meghan – The Duchess of Sussex – would only have to do so to Kate once the princess becomes Queen.
Prince Harry is set for a brief solo trip to the UK without Meghan this week to attend the WellChild awards in London on 7 September, before he heads to the Invictus Games in Germany, where the duchess will join him later.
He is not said to be meeting his father the King, who is reported to have no time in his diary, or his brother the Prince of Wales, amid their continued troubled relationship, which Harry laid bare in his Netflix documentary and Spare memoir.
Harry’s visit falls on the eve of the first anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s death and the King’s accession on 8 September.
Harry explored Meghan and Kate’s fractious relationship in his autobiography, recounting how the princess, pregnant at the time with Prince Louis, said she was owed an apology from Meghan after she said Kate was suffering from “baby brain” due to her “hormones”.
The duke shed further light on the row between Kate and Meghan over Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress, saying the incident left Meghan “sobbing on the floor”.
Andrew described how Diana had wanted her youngest son Harry to be a “wingman” to William.
She also hoped her husband Charles would move to Italy with his then-mistress Camilla, now the Queen, to spend his time farming and sketching, leaving his eldest son to become King.
Andrew said: “Her ambition was to see Prince Charles, her estranged husband, go off to Italy with his lady, being Camilla, and take up farming, sketching, watercolours and the rest of it, and leave her to guide Prince William into his future destiny as King – this is to say, to jump a generation.
“Well, that never happened.”
He added: “She also saw Harry very much as a back up, as a wingman to William in the difficult, lonely job that he will face. Well, that hasn’t happened either.”
Andrew was speaking just days after the 26th anniversary of Diana’s death and as unheard audio tapes of the late princess are due to air in an upcoming documentary.
