The Times: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry & Baby Archie Will Take Trip Back to the UK at Request of the Queen
The Sussexes, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and baby Archie, have been summoned back to England at the behest of the Queen, for what would be their last Royal engagement.
Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle packed up their life in the UK and took their son Archie with them, the American and her baby boy have not stepped foot in England. But that is about to change.
The Queen has requested that the family-of-three join her in London next month, and it's an order they can't disobey. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with their son, will be in the English capital on March 9th.
THE LAST DUTY
The Sussexes will join Her Majesty the Queen and other senior members of the Royal family for the annual Commonwealth service at Westminster Abbey. They will also be in the company of 53 world leaders from member states.
The trip would be the first time Meghan will step into the UK since the "Megxit." It would also mark her and Prince Harry's last duty to the Crown and the people of England.
CHANGE IS CONSTANT
The couple attended last year's service in the company of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The former actress was heavily pregnant with baby Archie at the time.
The monarch and her grandson found a way forward, but with some sacrifices.
A lot has changed since then, with the family-of-three making Canada their home and becoming financially independent of the Crown. Meghan and Harry recently had a public speaking engagement at a conference organized by JP Morgan.
THEY MIGHT BECOME TACKY
The couple got paid $1 million for the Miami-held conference. While the two seem to be taking advantage of the Sussex brand, The Daily Mail reported that experts think they might get perceived as "Tacky."
According to the news outlet, PR guru, Mark Borowski, believes that Meghan and Harry might "Slip up" along the way if all their clients are not as wealthy as JP Morgan. The expert also thinks that they might run out of things to say.
THE WAY FORWARD
The parents-of-one made their plan to become financially independent known when they announced their step down. They noted that they would pursue personal ventures going forward.
The "Megxit' led to a lot of contention within the Royal family, but the Queen eventually gave the couple her blessing. The monarch and her grandson found a way forward, but with some sacrifices.
Harry had to give up the use of his HRH title, as well as honorary military appointments. He also lost his Youth Ambassadorship to the commonwealth.
The losses pale in comparison to the new life the Duke now has with Meghan and their son. After the Commonwealth service, the trio will go back to life in Canada and to everything the future has in store for them.
