Since stepping back as senior royals in 2020,Prince Harry andMeghan Markle ’s relationship with other members of the royal family has come under the spotlight.
After moving to Los Angeles and beginning a new life with their two children, Archie and Lillibet, the pair have only returned to the UK on a handful of occasions,including for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in September.
But with Christmas just around the corner, it’s yet to be confirmed how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be spending the festive period, though one royal expert has claimed that it’s unlikely that the couple will spend the festivities in the UK.
Speaking exclusively to OK!, royal expert Jennie Bond has said that Meghan and Harry spending Christmas with the other royals would lead to an “awkward” encounter due to their upcoming Netflix docuseries and Harry’s upcoming memoir.
“I don’t think Meghan and Harry will come for Christmas. In between Netflix and their book it’d be too awkward,” she said.
According to reports,the pair’s upcoming Netflix docuseries is set to be released in a matter of weeks, with the show expected to cover events including their trip to the Netherlands for Harry’s Invictus Games in April and a visit to New York last year.
Meanwhile, 38 year old Harry’s memoir ‘Spare’ is set to hit shelves on 10 January – the day after the 41st birthday ofKate, Princess of Wales and just four months after thedeath of the Queen
But despite the upcoming releases, Jennie remained optimistic that a reunion could be on the cards in the future when Harry has been able to express his side of the story and any relevant discussions have been held.
“Maybe next year when the dust is settled they’ll come over here for Christmas,” she said. “ I’m sure Charles would love to spend Christmas with his grandchildren.
“Once the book is out of the way and Harry’s said what he wants to say, they could spend next Christmas with the royals.”
Jennie’s comments come after reports thatKing Charles is ready to strip Harry and Meghan of their titles if their memoir and Netflix show prove too damaging to The Firm.
During an appearance on The Megyn Kelly Show, royal author Tom Bower claimed that His Majesty had “made various threats” to the couple and had “warned” them about what could happen should they go ahead with their release.
