Prince Harry might visit the UK ‘at the end of the year’ for a Netflix project

Diana's 60th birthday

When Prince Harry spent a little more than a week in the UK in late June and early July, he showed a sort of breezy attitude which I hope he carries with him through all of the “family visits” he makes to Salt Island in the future. He flew in, went straight to Frogmore Cottage, likely met with various family members including the Queen, didn’t cause drama, did the statue-unveiling on July 1st and left town the next day. He even looked pleased, happy and unstressed at the unveiling. He stayed for a polite amount of time and got out. I would imagine that will be the same for any and all visits Harry makes before the Platinum Jubilee next year in June. Reportedly, Harry plans to make another brief visit to the UK later this year.

The 36-year-old is due to spend a weekend in Nottinghamshire at the end of the year, to lead planning for next year’s military veterans’ Invictus games in Holland. He will then pay a visit to his grandmother, the Queen, before flying back to his home in California. It was not known last night whether he will also make time to see his brother Prince William.

But while he is likely to leave behind his wife, Meghan, 40, and their children, Archie, two, and baby Lilibet, in their £11million Montecito mansion, the Duke of Sussex will not be travelling alone.

Sources said he will be flanked by a small film crew as he addresses participants at Stanford Hall, the Army’s rehabilitation centre for wounded soldiers. The crew, employed by Archewell Productions, will be filming as part of a £100m deal struck last year between Netflix and the Sussex’s Archewell Foundation, to produce Heart of Invictus, a documentary on the games.

It will be directed by British documentary-maker, a team already credited with an Academy Award for their short film The White Helmets, and a BAFTA for Virunga, set in the Congo’s Virunga national park.

The dude is flying in for work, if this reporting is true. And if it happens, I swear to God, the British media will turn this into the next big cudgel, the next big threat. “If Harry doesn’t do this or that, the Queen won’t allow him back in the country!!” “The Queen will bitch out Harry about his memoir when they meet!” And on and on. Anyway, if he’s got to go for work, then so be it. I like how he’s making zero plans to see William too. And of course Meghan and the kids are not coming.

    I mean it seems likely because they are filming heart of Invictus. So yeah. I don’t think he will spent anything more than the necessary amount of time needed tho. He will be back to Cali as soon as he can.

  2. Becks1 says:

    Well obviously who knows if this is true, it sounds like the Express might have been tipped off by someone at Stanford Hall, because that is a pretty specific detail to include – but also obviously this makes sense, as part of the documentary for Invictus they are going to want to interview UK soldiers and members of the UK IG team. People fly to different countries for work sometimes, it’s been known to happen.

  3. Amy Bee says:

    Hmm…I’m not sure he needs to go the UK to plan next year’s games in Holland. I believe a film crew will be going to the UK for the Netflix doc but I don’t think it’s necessary for Harry to tag along. This sounds like when the press reported that he was going to make a speech at the statue unveiling and then that turned out to be a lie. And what about the event that William was supposedly putting on in September? I’m guessing that was never going to happen if the press are now saying that Harry might be in the UK at the end of the year. It still doesn’t explain why the Wellchild Awards were moved up to June if Harry was going to return later in the year.

    • Cessily says:

      This story seems like it has one fact followed by a lot of speculation to fill in the blanks for whatever narrative they want this week.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Even if the September statue event happens (and I agree the plans for that will go up in a puff of smoke), Harry doesn’t need to return for it. He did his due diligence and came for the main unveiling. Let William be extra and have his little rendevous with the BM to feed the beast if he chooses. But I doubt it will happen.

  4. Nicki says:

    So funny how the tabloids always include the price tag of the Montecito house that H and M bought with their own earnings but never reference the ongoing millions the rest of the royals cost the British taxpayers every year. Talk about Stockholm syndrome.

    • Vivica says:

      It’s a tactical ploy. Most of your “common” citizens think for some reason that H&M are still on their dime. This way they can paint the picture of extravagance in another country to push the abandonment/non-working royal card. Or the “selling your family out for money” argument. Ironically enough, not a single person has issue with TM selling out MM or Pedo Andrew living his life of luxury despite not being a working royal. Goes to show that the hate comes first and the “reason” comes second with these folks.

    • Jane says:

      I thought the same thing. They ALWAYS put the price of their “mansion.” They bought the damn thing with private funds. It seems to me they should put the price of all the other Royal residences.

    • AmB says:

      BUT HOW MANY BATHROOMS DOES IT HAVE?????!!?!?!?!!!??

  5. Dee says:

    How much did their mansion cost again? LOL. The royal rota is salivating at the chance for anyhting Sussex. I guess they are getting tired of writing Carole Middleton’s fan fiction.

    • Nicole says:

      Great minds. I just commented on this down thread as well. It’s almost as if the UK doesn’t have pricey real estate. I honestly (though it will never happen) wish they would let the man live.

      • Dee says:

        It’s not like the Queen has a golden piano or anything! And more than 20 houses, estates, castles. Mineral rights and hunting land and stolen jewels and artifacts.

  6. Woke says:

    It looks credible because the sources most likely came from the British side probably people involved with the planning of the filming. But it’s not official until Archwell say so and I hope they don’t say anything. Harry doesn’t need to announce ithat he’s traveling to the UK.

  7. Snuffles says:

    I’m going with – film crew for his Invictus Games documentary will be coming to the UK to film some segments. UK press got wind of the plan and decided to desperately spin that means Harry is coming for another visit. From there, they’ll churn out a million other BS stories to write about.

  8. Nicole says:

    You know I’m confused. How much did the mansion in Montecito cost? The London press rarely mentions it.

    • Becks1 says:

      Are there enough bathrooms? It’s a mystery.

      • Cessily says:

        Just to be fair, someone posted the Royal Lodge has 78 bathrooms.. that should be posted in the all the PA articles.. I’m sure PW has double that since he is the FFK he probably has 156+ 🤷🏼‍♀️.. I’m all for them putting the number of bathrooms the Royals have in their properties.

      • Becks1 says:

        @cessily ahhhh now its all coming together. William wants the Royal Lodge for its bathrooms because its the one way he can beat Harry!

      • L84Tea says:

        OMG Becks, I am dying over that comment! 😀

      • Lorelei says:

        78 bathrooms?! Ffs that’s insane.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Right. Along with their ages because that’s really importanto to the story?

  9. NeedCoffee says:

    They didn’t mention the number of bathrooms?

  10. Louise177 says:

    It’s bizarre to me that everyone makes a big deal about when Harry comes to England. He has friends, family, and business there so I don’t know why people think he should never step foot in the UK ever again.

  11. Ginger says:

    They are so desperate for Harry to be back for ANYTHING. It’s so sad lol They lost him and don’t know how to deal.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Well, when you’ve got Dull and Duller who have been MIA for nearly 2 months now, and probably in the wind for a while yet, the desperation for interesting news/gossip will reach a fever pitch. They’re collectively like Pavlov’s dog when they hear the name “Harry”.

  12. Tessa says:

    There is a lot of desperation to see if he will Meet with William, that’s the tabs wish.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      But they did meet at the unveiling and it was a nothingburger.

      I wouldn’t get my expectations up if I were them.

  13. MsIam says:

    They keep referring to Harry as being “exiled” I looked up the word just to be certain and it means barred or banned from the home country. So why are these jokers constantly wondering when is he coming back?

  14. Nancy says:

    Not even a mention of Charles.

  15. Sunnyvale says:

    😂here comes another palace leaked lie designed to sooth the rabid RRs losing their minds because of the losses they incurred after sussexit. I expect to hear anothet version of this fake claim come November when we hear they’re not coming for sandringham walk AGAIN 😏the palace is desperately scrambling to shift focus off of Andrew and how lizzy is paying for his lawyers. If Harry was coming he wouldn’t have scheduled the wellchild awards that was supposed to happen in September to make it during his visit!

  16. Merricat says:

    Harry and Meghan still have ties to Britain, just not so much to the royal family. The tabs can get all revved up if they like, but I doubt that Harry will engage with them. My guess is he’ll conduct any business he has, stay with Eugenie, pop over to say hello to the queen, and then hurry back home to Cali. Sooner or later, people will get tired of the bait and switch stories they’re getting, like tasteless cotton candy, and figure out that Harry isn’t ever coming back to the palace.
