Following the release of the new Netflix documentary Harry and Meghan Markle, it is unlikely that the Duke of Sussex will return to the country.
Royal biographer Tom Bower told Page Six that he can’t imagine a scenario in which the couple would be “welcome” in the UK. “I don’t think Harry would ever be welcome in England,” he said. Bower also said it is unlikely that Harry and Meghan would be on the guest list for King Charles III’s coronation.
Bower bases this conclusion on the fact that Harry and Meghan are becoming increasingly estranged from the royal family. “I think he’s isolating himself from everything. He’s becoming an outcast and I don’t think anyone cares if he’s welcome here. I … It’s definitely over. And it’s coming to an end.” – Bower said.
Prince Harry and Meghan won’t be on King Charles’ coronation
As for the coronation, Bower said Charles III “hates confrontation,” so what happens at the coronation, scheduled for May, is unlikely at this point. Thus, in his first television interview since the Queen’s death, he said, “Harry and Meghan, we send you our love. But love has been rejected.” – Bower said.
Will Harry and Meghan ever return their family’s favor? Bower says it will be difficult: “Their attempt at reconciliation is about trying to get them to change what they say on Netflix and (what) (Harry’s diary), and the reason is simply that Meghan is greedy for fame and fortune and doesn’t care about the royal family,” he said.
Bowers’ comments came just days after Harry and Meghan became available on Netflix. The series chronicles the Sussex couple’s retirement and move to California, as well as their personal and family life. The first three episodes of the limited series will air on Dec. 8 and the final three episodes on Dec. 15.
