Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are eyeing up a return to the UK this year, a new report claims.
The Duke and Duchess, who moved to the US last year just as the COVID-19 pandemic sent many countries into lockdown, have been away from the UK since March 2020.
With that in mind, they're no doubt keen to get back to Harry's family and their first official home together - at least for a little while.
According to a new report from The Sunday Times, Prince Harry and Duchess Megan will be aiming to return to the UK in time for the British summer.
The timing will coincide with the annual Trooping The Colour parade, an event marking the Queen's 95th birthday.

According to the newspaper, Harry and Meghan will travel to London for the parade which is touted to go ahead "as normal."
"It may need to be adapted or scaled back depending on what guidelines are in force at the time. But the aspiration and the ultimate desire is to make it happen," a senior royal aide told the publication.
This news is encouraging given the event was cancelled last year due to the risk posed by the rapid spread of COVID-19 in the UK.
But as the vaccination is rolled out across the country and a number of others, there is definite hope that things may start going back to normal (or have a semblance of pre-COVID-19 times) by then.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan left the UK in December 2019 to travel to Canada, where they set up base on Vancouver Island.
Not long into the new year, the Duke and Duchess announced they would be stepping back from their senior royal roles and splitting their time between the UK and North America.
After a couple of brief stints back in the UK, the pair moved back to the US to Los Angeles, before buying a house in California's Santa Barbara.
They have remained there ever since.

There's been plenty of rumours swirling about Harry and older brother Prince William reconnecting over the Christmas break, and no reason to suggest the siblings haven't kept in touch this whole time.
With Harry and Meghan's one-year-old son Archie also growing older by the minute, it's completely understandable that the pair would wish to return back to the UK to see the royals and catch up with their families.
And so, we wait and hope - June might be looking very different, with just a touch of Trooping pomp in the mix. Fingers crossed...
