Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could return to UK for ‘extended period’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal biographer has said the pair are "likely" to return to the UK for an extended period next year.

Omid Scobie said the couple had "many reasons" to come back in the spring and summer of 2021, including Trooping the Colour and the unveiling of the new Princess Diana statue.

The co-author of the biography, Finding Freedom also suggested that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to make private and professional trips back to British soil, reports Mail Online.

Speaking on the  Heirpod  podcast, Omid said: "In March, we have the Invictus Games, which has been rescheduled, in the Hague.

"In June, we have Trooping the Colour, which I imagine Prince Harry and Meghan would like to still be at, and July 1, we have the unveiling of the (Princess Diana) statue."

It comes as the Duke appeared in a new video call to promote a Netflix documentary about the paralympics.  

Speaking on the podcast, Omid said: "I would not be surprised if we saw the Sussexes spend an extended period of time in the UK next year."

He added: "There are many reasons for them to be based in the UK for that period, depending on whether travel will be back to normal."

Speaking to  Royal Central, Scobie said: "While their base will be in the US, I think once travel restrictions ease we will see them moving around again and undertaking trips to the UK, both privately and professionally."

He added: "A lot of the work they already started, including all four of Meghan’s patronages, are right here on British soil."

Scobie who said he doesn't believe they'll return to the UK as full-time working royals, continued: "The Sussexes are more engaged in the issues that matter to them than ever, the work on Archewell–their non-profit organisation–continues, and, as we have recently seen, they have established a permanent family base in California.

"The UK will always be important to them, but I don’t think we’ll ever see that happen again as working royals."
