Prince Harry is expected to return to the UK to be there for his grandmother following the death of her husband, Prince Philip. It is, however, uncertain if Meghan Markle will go with him.
Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip has died at the age of 99. Because of this, Prince Harry, who left the United Kingdom last year, will reportedly return to support his grandmother.
Prince Philip's death comes only a few weeks after Harry and Meghan Markle's controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey was aired on CBS in the United States and ITV in the United Kingdom.

Despite the tension caused by Harry and Markle's interview, the royal family reportedly admitted that they tried to shield Philip away from the drama. The latter was in the hospital at the time.
While speaking to DailyMail, a source close to the royal family revealed that Harry wants nothing more than to be there for his family right now and will do his best to get back to the UK.
The source, however, noted that it is unclear if Markle, who is currently pregnant with the couple's second child, will be able to go with her husband, seeing that doctors might advise her against it.
Philip, married to the Queen for 74 years, was the longest-serving royal consort in the British royal family's history. He acted as a constant companion to the monarch even after retiring from royal duties in 2017.
In a statement released on Buckingham Palace's social media pages, it was revealed that Philip passed away peacefully at Windsor Castle in the early hours of Friday.
As funeral plans are being made, the Queen will enter an eight-day mourning period to grieve the loss of her dear husband. No doubt Prince Phillip will be greatly missed!
