A source has claimed that Meghan Markle could be returning to the United Kingdom in 2024, as she is rumoured to be joining Prince Harry for a special event scheduled to take place in May.

It’s reported that their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet could also be making the trip with both parents.

The Duchess of Sussex has not been on British shores since the late Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in September 2022, and numerous reports previously emerged saying that Meghan vowed she would “never step foot in England again”.

However, it’s now alleged that Meghan will be joining Harry on a trip to the UK in May, 2024, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games in London.

The insider told OK! that, “Harry is very keen for his entire family to join him. It’s important for him that they show a united front and focus on building bridges with the rest of the royal family.”

They added: “The move to bring the Invictus Games back to Britain is seen as an opportunity for Harry and he is very keen to take it. He is adamant that he wants Meghan and the children to join him, but I think she may be apprehensive and I think she finds being in the UK very uncomfortable.”

Meghan wants to avoid “an anxiety-fuelled visit to England where she feels like she’s not wanted”.

The Invictus Games is an international multi-sport event for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans, founded by Prince Harry in 2014. Created “to inspire international communities through the power of the unconquered human spirit”.

The Games are held every few years, with the 2025 event being held in Vancouver and Whistler in Canada next February.

The Duke of Sussex was inspired to begin the Invictus Games after returning home from deployment in Afghanistan and it is a cause very close to his heart, which may be why he is fighting to have his whole family join him in England this May in celebration of its tenth anniversary.

Harry is said to be eager to reunite his children with his family, particularly following the news of both King Charles’ and Catherine, Princess of Wales’ cancer diagnoses.

A source also revealed that “Harry would love for Archie and Lilibet to have a better relationship with their cousins or even the children of some of his friends.”

Prince Harry was most recently in the UK visiting King Charles following the announcement of his father’s shock cancer diagnosis.

Prior to that, the Duke of Sussex hadn’t been back to England since the King’s coronation in May 2023, which he also attended solo without his wife and children.
