The Sussexes apparently offered to bring their kids to the UK to visit the Queen

Young Leaders Awards Ceremony

Last week, I had a real moment of frustration and anger with the Windsors’ inability to execute a mature media strategy in regard to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Reportedly, the Windsors are refusing to reconcile with Harry now because they’re so worried about his memoir. You know, because they think if they just ignore him and continue to smear him in the press, maybe he’ll go easy on them in his memoir? As I said, these people don’t have the good sense God gave a goose. And now here’s more evidence of the Windsors’ short-sightedness and chronic insolence: Harry and Meghan are actively trying to bury the hatchet, allegedly, and instead of welcoming those efforts, the courtiers ran directly to the Sun to smear H&M.

Meghan and Harry have made an audacious bid for a UK meeting with the Queen in the coming weeks. It comes after “olive branch” calls home following the Oprah chat row. Harry and Meghan plan to introduce the Queen to her namesake great-granddaughter Lilibet — if she agrees to meet them in the coming weeks.

The Sussexes have offered to fly in to see the monarch — for the Duchess’s first return trip to the UK since March 2020’s Megxit. And Harry has made “olive branch” calls to his family as he and Meghan plan a christening for four-month-old Lilibet, possibly at Windsor Castle.

But senior staff are said to be stunned by the request for a meeting, months after the couple blasted the Royal Family in a chat with TV pal Oprah Winfrey.

A source said: “Harry and Meghan have made this offer but a lot of people are shocked by the sheer nerve of it. They may genuinely want to see the Queen but it’s breathtaking given what they’ve put her through this year. Her Majesty’s staff have not responded so far. In fact there has also been discussion about Christmas — and whether an invitation should be sent to Harry and Meghan, after they spurned one last year. The Queen is still very fond of Harry, and would love to see Lilibet and her brother Archie. But courtiers are surprised by the move, especially from Meghan, after what has happened.”

Harry last appeared in the UK in July to unveil a statue to mum Diana. Harry’s conciliatory calls are thought to include conversations with dad Charles and brother William. Insiders say he is not likely to return until after September 15 — his 37th birthday. And the Queen plans to stay at Balmoral until October.

Our source added: “The family are concerned he will go into his feelings about Diana’s death, her treatment by the royals and how he initially felt about his father’s relationship with Camilla. That’s why it’s all the more surprising that this offer for a meeting has been made now.”

[From The Sun]

“…Whether an invitation should be sent to Harry and Meghan, after they spurned one last year…” Last December, the pandemic was raging and no one was traveling anywhere. There was no “spurning,” for the love of God. It sounds like Harry called his grandmother and offered to come back for a week, so that the Queen could see Lilibet and Archie. He probably wants to get Lilibet christened at Windsor Castle too. And maybe the Queen even welcomed that idea and they made some kind of tentative schedule for a possible October visit. And then when the Queen told her advisors, the Men in Grey ran straight to the tabloids to make it sound like How Dare Harry Request To See His Beloved Grandmother!! Completely asinine.

    Ugh. I so wish they would just have Lili christened in Montecito. But if that’s what they want, it will probably happen. And Harry probably has a few UK based friends he want as godparents. I mean, I get them wanting to introduce the Queen to her namesake at least once before she dies.

    • Pao says:

      Personally i think the queen was probably one of the first people to be introduced to the new baby. Albeit on zoom. I wonder if those stories saying that harry wanted to be back in September( to celebrate his birthday?) had some truth to them, reading this.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Pao: If he was going back to the UK in September why did he make Wellchild move up their awards to the end of June? Who is going to celebrate his birthday with in the UK?

      • Snuffles says:

        @amybee

        Excellent point. I forgot about that. So this story is probably complete BS. If Harry had wanted to return for the Well Child awards in September, he would have probably done that and coordinated Lily’s christening as well. Him moving it means he has no intention of returning to the U.K. anytime soon.

      • Amy Too says:

        Amy bee, I feel like the Queen might be dying or ailing and that’s why Harry and Meghan want to make this unexpected trip. Because otherwise, why would well child have been moved up? We’re in a pandemic that’s getting worse. But there have been so many articles recently that seem to be about power struggles and positioning for Charles’ reign. Will and Kate moving to Windsor, whoever is outing Charles’ fundraising schemes, the stuff about who will protect Andrew after the queen, Duke of Edinburgh title kerfuffle. It seems like something is happening.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        But did Harry *make* them move it up, or did *they* decide to move it up, since he was certainly going to be there, and there was some *un*certainty he’d come in Sept., as no one knew how good/bad the pandemic was going to be in the fall?

        It could’ve just been a matter of “we have him here NOW, let’s just do it”, rather than, “let’s wait and see in Sept”, and then possible *not* be able to get him there.

      • Lorelei says:

        @AmyToo I agree with the others that this article is probably bs, but I had the same exact thought about the Queen a few days ago. I was telling my husband about the leaked plans for her death, and I read somewhere that it said some of those plans had been made in a meeting “last week.” I know that doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but when you put everything together…idk, I wondered if maybe she’s been diagnosed with something and they’re just not making it public. Because it does seem like every single member of the family is furiously trying to get all of their ducks in a row asap.

    • Ginger says:

      This story is based off an IG story from Deuxmi. Anyone can submit “tea” about celebrities or royals. The Harry and Meghan tea is usually false. The Sun has done this before. That’s how desperate they are for stories regarding the Sussex’s. I don’t see them flying their infant daughter to see the Queen in the middle of a pandemic.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        And if they *do* go, you will see the stories start about how the hypocritical “Ecco-warrior” chooses to fly HIS family private! How much it will cost (how many bathrooms on the planes?! OK j/k on that one lol). But the will go on about carbon foot prints and costs, like the taxpayers are funding him! OH THE HUMANITY!

        Frankly IF they do decide to take the kids, I can’t see them travel any way BUT private, using the VIP suite/entrances at LAX (and I’m sure Heathrow has them, too), to limit ANY public exposure (both photographic AND health-wise (esp. the latter) for the kids.

        But I still call BS on this article, and those like it, in its entirety.

      • Psyren says:

        Inclined to agree with Amy Too. Something big is happening and my first thought was that if they want the children to see the queen then it must be because she’s sick and/or dying.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Exactly, it is based on things workshopped for DeuxMoi on a hate forum, then submitted for their approval and publication. When will people figure out DeuxMoi = fake?

    • Lemons says:

      Can you believe they are creating drama over the parents wanting their child to meet her great-grandmother/ her namesake/ the Queen of England before she dies? Like what kind of mess is this. True or not, it’s perfectly understandable, and I don’t see why the courtiers are shocked emoji face.

    • Killfanora says:

      Please look at the source…..it’s the Sun, or Scum (as it’s called in the UK.) No one with the intelligence of a flea believes the Scum in the UK.

  2. Moderatelywealthy says:

    A waste of time this article IMO… is pretty much about how the COURTIERS feel Betty should react and about what family members fear Harry will say- in other words, a non story.

    Methinks they not even daring to deny Harry’ complaints happened/have merit, added with the fact they are no longer using the Queen as shield after she denied she was thinking about suing Harry is “improvement” enough in their eyes

  3. truthSF says:

    This made up story is a last minute attempt to counter the prince Charles scandal. Anyone who believes anything from the Dim should sell me their home for $1.😤

    • Jegede says:

      I mean this ‘exclusive’ generated from a Deuxmoi blind FFS!🙄🙄

      These ‘exclusives’ didn’t even know of Harry’s GQ appearance beforehand, but they have his travel flight plans.

    • Killfanora says:

      Totally agree, truthSF. The Scum is trying to blanket the real story of money for titles/meeting Charles, etc.

  4. Abena Asantewaa says:

    I’ve lost the will to live! Jesus take the wheel! These dim witted Windsors are being manipulated by their courtiers. Why aren’t they discussing the corruption in Charles’s household. For all you know it is the queen who has requested for them, but everything gets flipped in this family and their household

    • Lorelei says:

      @Abena I started laughing so hard as soon as I read the first two sentences of your comment…I needed one today, so thank you. And ITA with everything you said.

  5. Lady Digby says:

    Prince Charles and Fawcett have been reported to the police by the Republic organization over possible offences against 1925 Act to prevent cash for honors. So quite frankly I was expecting more melodrama over the return of H and M.
    Big question if police investigate and charge anyone what other deflection scandals could emerge?!

    • Lorelei says:

      They were already desperate for deflection stories because of Andrew alone. Now this? God only knows what BS they’re going to concoct in an attempt to keep people’s attention off both Andrew’s lawsuit AND Charles’s wrongdoing, especially with Ghislaine’s trial starting soon.

      Thoughts and prayers to the crisis management team!

  6. Truthiness says:

    What a farce! A few short months ago the media was writing that Lilibet would save the world and solve any impasse between the UK and Montecito. And right now, the media definitely needs a new royal topic since Charles is ‘pay for play’ and Andrew is wanted for questioning by the FBI. I bet the courtiers have been saving up their outrage for 6 months and now they finally get to clutch their pearls and fan themselves theatrically. Cmon dudes, you need this, surely you can’t be this bad at your jobs.

  7. Amy Bee says:

    It should be noted that this story came out at the same time that the Sun’s sister paper, the Sunday Times was exposing Charles’s access for cash scheme. So I doubt the validity of this story. It seems like an attempt by courtiers to distract from Charles’s shady dealings. Luckily it doesn’t seem to have worked this time.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      That doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t true. We don’t know when the Sussexes actually asked. I think it’s more than likely that shortly after the baby was born H&M said they wanted to come in October after she returned from Balmoral. So, the courtiers may have been sitting on this for awhile. Possibly in case it was needed to deflect from Andrew. I don’t think it’s crazy to think that Harry wants the Queen to meet Lilibet or that he wants her baptized at Windsor. His feelings about everything are probably pretty complicated. So, even though his family did horrible things, I can see him wanting to continue family traditions anyway.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Ainsley: If the plan was always to come in October why did Harry make Wellchild move up their awards to the end of June? I’m having a hard time believing that Harry and Meghan are so eager for Lili to be christened in the UK when they had such an awful time with Archie’s christening and when the Palace is liable to leak information on their whereabouts and arrangements for a christening in the UK. I would think Harry and Meghan would want to protect Lili. And does this mean that Meghan has absolutely no say in the marriage? Is it that she just agrees with everything her husband wants?

      • cathy says:

        @amybee Meghan doesn’t have much say in these things. After what they put her through why the hell did she agree to name her child Lilibet? This is harry doing and Meghan goes along. No sensible woman will put the racist name on her child. Stop with bs that Sussex has good relation with the queen. Queen still this age protect andy but she doesn’t do anything for meghan.

      • Ainsley7 says:

        @Amy- Wellchild awards are usually held in September. If Harry wants Lilibet christened at Windsor with the Queen there then he would have to wait until at least October. Lili’s christening would also have been tentative because of the pandemic. Wellchild would rather count on a nailed down date than push it back based on Harry possibly coming.

        As for Meghan having a say, I’m sure she does. However, her family doesn’t have the kind of strong traditions that the Royal family does. So, I understand her supporting Harry by following his family’s traditions.

        As for leaks and such, they really don’t matter as much for the Sussexes. They’re no longer living in it 24/7 and are allowed to speak out against the tabloids if needed.

        I only remember tabloid nonsense around the christening. I don’t remember them intruding on the actual christening. The chapel they used is in the castle. So, it was entirely private. Maybe I’m forgetting something?

        The tabloids aren’t going to stop writing nasty things. So, why shouldn’t they live their lives the way they want to?

      • Lorelei says:

        @Cathy, while your comment was insulting and offensive to Meghan and no doubt totally untrue, as Harry and Meghan seem to be in a partnership of equals, I have to admit it was refreshing to see someone blaming HARRY for “controlling” everything, as it’s usually the other way around. 🙄
        But the fact remains that it’s ludicrous to think that Meghan had no say in naming her own child, and your comment was insulting to her on many levels.

        (For the record, I don’t think the Queen deserved to have Harry’s baby named after her after the horrific way she treated both Harry and Meghan for years (and continues to!), and cannot understand why they seem to consider her blameless — but that has nothing to do with the fact that naming a baby is a joint decision for a couple.)

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Cathy: Meghan agreed to let Harry name their daughter after the Queen. That’s for sure and only they know why they have chosen to absolve her of any wrongdoing but I’d like to think Meghan has some say in her marriage. If she doesn’t then she’s not the feminist she claims to be.

      • Maria says:

        To Amy Bee and Cathy: Using a private family nickname has nothing to do with absolving the Queen of any wrongdoing. All they said was she personally was fine to them – of course the Queen is awful, but pretending like using her nickname is an endorsement of her reign is ridiculous.

        Also: “I’d like to think Meghan has some say in her marriage. If she doesn’t then she’s not the feminist she claims to be.” Yikes, on so many levels.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Maria: It’s clear that Harry and Meghan don’t blame the Queen for what has happened. They have taken pains to separate her from the wrongdoing that took place. Harry is on record saying the Queen is poorly advised. He blames the courtiers and his father and brother not the Queen.

      • Maria says:

        I’m aware of that. They’re talking about her actions in regards to them only. After all, they know what happened in that regard better than we do.
        “Choosing to absolve her of any wrongdoing” is projection. And using a nickname doesn’t indicate that at all.

      • Jaded says:

        @Amy Bee – Meghan didn’t agree to let Harry name their daughter Lilibet, it was a mutually agreed upon decision. That’s how they roll. Anyway, this whole bringing the kids to the UK to meet the Queen is nonsense and a deliberate distraction from Charles’s current legal problems. We’re still in a raging pandemic and even flying by private jet doesn’t guarantee the kids wouldn’t be exposed. They can’t be vaccinated so there’s not a snowflake’s chance in hell that Meghan and Harry would put them in harm’s way.

    • Becks1 says:

      I mean I’m sure Harry and Meghan are discussing visiting the UK and bringing their children. I know some people never want them to step foot in the UK again, but that’s not going to be what happens.

      But, are they discussing it for this fall? I dunno, bc the well child awards would not have been moved up if Harry was coming back in September. And Harry does not like to go to balmoral so that’s not being discussed. Plus whatever quarantine restrictions etc are in place.

      So basically I’m sure it’s being discussed, but not for anytime over the next month or so, and this story is being released now as a distraction.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Becks: The most logical date for any visit to the UK would be April/June next year when the Invictus Games takes place. They made a point to not bring Archie over when they visited the UK last year and I get the sense that they are not keen to have their children flying back and forth to the UK on a frequent basis. We don’t even know how they feel about bringing their children to the UK because of how the press and the Palace react to them. The whole mess with Lili’s name could have probably dissuaded them about taking the children to the UK.

      • Becks1 says:

        @AmyBee – that’s what I think is most likely to happen – they will come over for Invictus, maybe do one PRIVATE event as part of the queen’s jubilee (no press), maybe do the christening then as well, etc. So just one trip to Europe but get a lot done while there. I don’t see them hauling their children back and forth for quick little visits like Harry did for the funeral and the statue unveiling, but I do think they will bring them at some point. I think its really unlikely that we will see them on any visits however (i.e. no christmas morning walk as they get older, no balcony appearances, etc.)

      • notasugarhere says:

        The real anniversary is 6 February, but the Queen doesn’t celebrate it as it is the death of her father. She spends it at Sandringham where he passed away. In 2022 the anniversary falls on Sunday, so if she’s still with us, QEII will go to church at Sandringham as usual. I could see Sussex Family doing a long weekend visit around that, then back to the US pronto. I’d expect Lili to be christened long before then.

        Suppose Peter will plan Platinum Jubilee Weekend Picnics, complete with bespoke bottles of royal milk?

  8. MellyMel says:

    Another distraction.

  9. Eurydice says:

    Well, the courtiers can be shocked all they want, but if the Queen wants to see Harry & Co., that’s all that matters.

    • Becks1 says:

      Right?? Sorry if the men in gray are appalled, the queen is who matters.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Seeing as how she drove herself to visit Harry at Frogmore when he was in the UK last, I don’t think she gives a crap about the courtiers’ pearl clutching.

  10. Lolo says:

    Isn’t this just a repeat of a story from months ago? They just keep shifting the dates every few months. What happened to them saying he was coming for Dianas statues party? By November we’ll have tons of stories about Christmas. Will they or won’t they? How they’ve snubbed the Queen? Or how dare they come to the UK? Blah blah!
    It’s been the same since they left.
    What H&M decide to do is their business.
    In reality it’s all about getting clicks and keeping the outrage machine going no matter how contradictory it is.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Lolo I wouldn’t be surprised if they had a template of this story prewritten, and they just rerun it over and over again, only switching out the dates and occasions.

  11. Jay says:

    I don’t believe this, unless there is concern about the Queen’s health and wanting Lili to meet her grandmother, but given that the sussexes are understandably reticent about releasing pictures of their children, I think if they did visit it would be private.

    Mostly I think this gives us some insight into the pettiness surrounding the royals, both media and gold standard advisors. They clearly see it as a power struggle: “They didn’t come when we summoned them in the middle of a pandemic, they’ll just have to languish waiting for another invitation to see their grandmother. We call the shots!”

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Jay: They knew Philip was ill and probably dying and they didn’t visit him so what’s so different about the Queen?

      • notasugarhere says:

        I doubt people knew how sick Philip was. He was ‘ill and probably dying’ for five years.

      • Maria says:

        Well for one thing, Philip had been known to request his family not to visit him when he was ill. He spent time with Penelope Knatchbull and that was it.
        When he worsened the only person he saw was Charles, to discuss how he would take on the royal of family patriarch and even that meeting only lasted 30 minutes.

      • Becks1 says:

        Also, vaccination status. I’m sure Harry was vaccinated by Phillip’s funeral but we don’t know obviously when he got vaccinated, it may not have been in time for him to have even thought about a visit to see Phillip.

      • Jay says:

        Well, as I said above, like many I am dubious about whether this proposed visit is true – the Sussexes keep their sh*t tight, and they don’t seem inclined to expose their children to risk
        the only thing I think that COULD possibly spur them to travel in what is still a pandemic would be to introduce their daughter to her namesake before things get really bad this winter.

        Can you imagine if Harry attended the polo match this summer but wouldn’t go see his beloved grandmother on her deathbed?

        It bears repeating that I do not think this is what’s happening, but it is instructive in how the courtiers are reacting to it, you know?

  12. Cessily says:

    You would think that they be begging for some good press after the charity fraud scandal investigation and civil court lawsuit for rape of a trafficking minor… but sure make the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanting to visit the national horror. They should be ashamed.

    • JT says:

      Yeah you would think so, but it’s the palace and they wouldn’t know how to get good press if it slapped them in the face, and it has slapped them in the face. They are just dumb f*cks all around. I be embarrassed if I had to support this. No outrage over Charles treating the monarchy like a cheap auction but sure, Harry wanting his children to meet the queen is the problem.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Cessily, those of us who follow the royals closely been aware of how many stories were deflection tactics for a long time, but it is so unbelievably blatant at this point! Any idiot can recognize it now. The constant incompetence is unreal.

  13. equality says:

    So more “Meghan is all to blame” rhetoric. The Sun spreads this lie with outrage that H&M think they should be allowed to visit his grandmother. Then when there is no trip to the UK, they can go with “the Queen refused to see them” or “they spurned the Queen and wouldn’t let the poor old woman see her great-grandchildren” or probably both. It’s the usual no-win situation for H&M with the BM. And they are supposedly worried about Harry discussing things that have already been out there? Is there more to know about Di’s treatment and death that is worse than what has already been said? And, I think, most people can imagine that Will and Harry weren’t great with Camilla at first, and maybe even now. What would be so shocking about discussing that?

    • Jegede says:

      The front page was phrased as: Meghan DEMANDS to meet the Queen.🙄

      And the write-up quoted courtiers saying the Queen would be happy to see Harry, Archie & Lili.
      No mention of the mother though.🙄

  14. Nanea says:

    Hasn’t it been established for quite some time that The Scum has gone over to the *fiction* section of the British media?

    Murdoch considers The Scum a write-off and its value at 0, because the losses incurred are so massive.

    So I guess they have free reign in publishing whatever stories cribbed off Deuxmoi and embellished by their in-house rota rats they can come up with.

    • Jais says:

      So what’s the difference between the sun and the daily mail then, out of curiosity? Is it that DM is just as terrible but some of their stories are based on actual sources as opposed to complete fiction with the sun. Even though those sources are just royals using the DM for whatever message, which at least makes the DM legit in terms of trying to figure out where the story came from. Really asking cuz both papers suck but is there a for real difference between the two?

  15. Over it says:

    After I was done being blown away by the insults and ability to act like Meghan is all things Satan. I returned to the part that said that the queen would love to see Harry and his children because clearly Meghan his wife and the children mother who carried them for 9 months, pushed them out and nurses them , has no place in that institution or family which for me is all the same . The continue to blame her for everything. She alone did the interview. She must have done the me you can’t see. She must have done James cordon . She must be writing a memoir. These people continue to show their racist asses and they will never change because they don’t need or want to o because their whiteness protects them . This is not a place I would bring my children. If Betty wants to meet Lili. She can get on a plane. She I am sure has access to as many private planes as she wants .
    I get wanting to have both your children Christian in the same place, but why would you want a hostile occasion with all those racist backstabbing, bad minded people around you on your daughter special day. Maybe they can Christian her with just Betty if they really want her there and just not have anyone else from that family except Eugene and her family. I can’t wait till the day this racist institution falls with those racist asshats along with it .

    • Lorelei says:

      @Over It, it’s DISGUSTING how so many of these articles either sh!t on Meghan or ignore her existence completely, especially the “We would welcome Harry back” ones. Really? Just Harry? He’s supposed to abandon his wife and children so their racist asses can pretend they don’t exist? It’s so cruel and so transparent.

      And ita about the Queen going to them— I know we’ve been told she won’t travel/do tours anymore, but for fcks sake, she could pop a Xanax, board one of the most luxurious private planes in the world, and wake up in Los Angeles. There is absolutely nothing stopping her from meeting Lilibet if she wants to.

      • Lady D says:

        The logistics involvd moving a 95yo 4000 miles are staggering. They are old with fragile bones, they don’t adapt well to change, they have a weakened immune system and at that age, I guarantee they have medical issues. The Xanax might do her in at that age.

  16. Tanya Nguyen says:

    Really hope there’s no truth to H&M wanting to go back to Windsor for a christening. I feel that Harry so badly wants to maintain a close relationship with the queen. But is that feeling reciprocated? Meghan understood that her relationship with her father is dead and doesn’t try to communicate. Why does harry try so hard?

    • Surly Gale says:

      A hurt heart never stops hurting, no matter how much therapy. Therapy helps one understand the hurt, but it doesn’t alleviate it. I believe Harry is trying because (a) he really does love his granny, the woman who stepped in to help him recover when his mum died and (b) he knows the system better than anyone else, and has been hurt by the system. He has been hurt by his Dad, his brother, the RR and the men in grey. So his great big heart is hurting. The great big heart that has seen a light, and he wants to share this new point of view, and probably doesn’t get why the rest of the family won’t join him in healing. He has admitted he’s been appalled by the level of racism added to the ongoing ‘hate her cause she’s the woman he loves’, which he expected. But Granny has learned to hide her distain, and Harry doesn’t want to see it. I get it. Humans are complicated creatures, with deeply complicated emotional lives.

    • Susan says:

      Agree with both of these points. In our family, my father was viewed as the good guy, everyone loved him. He was the “good cop,” and we didn’t see for years that he was actually the most sneaky and manipulative (and frankly, meanest) of them all . Not saying this is the same situation but often in dysfunctional families, people take on roles and sometimes the family members don’t see the truth, they see people as what they were to them years ago. I still see my sister as an acne prone teenage girl In the 1980s.

  17. Maria says:

    This is yet another article meant to stir up comments against the Sussexes not only from the people who hate them but even among their supporters.
    It’s absolutely nobody else’s business if Harry and Meghan want their children to see the Queen. Likely it would be a private thing without the courtiers or other family involved.
    I’m certainly no apologist for her but the fact is she’s on her way out, so it’s not that weird to me that they might want to do this.
    But I would doubt this story is true, there are too many holes in it.

  18. pixiestyx says:

    This story treats Harry not like beloved grandson, but like if any old peasant off the street had requested a visit with the queen. Yes the audacity of Harry and Meghan to try to schedule a visit to introduce in person their baby to her great grandmother.

  19. Nutella toast says:

    I mean Wellchild could have been moved out of fear that worsening pandemic numbers would cancel the event – with Harry in town it was a smart move. I’m not sure that’s proof of anything. I work in nonprofit world and we should have moved ours to June because the numbers are so bad here now. Hot vaxxed summer is OVER.

    Fiction!
    I suspect a certain lowlife in Rosarito will be getting a call soon to spout more bile.

    Harry and Meghan have to earn their Netflix and Spotify dollars, plus Harry have a JOB, he is not on the taxpayers payroll anymore.
    He had time off for his grandfather’s funeral, statue for his mother and maternity leave, his next day off will be Thanksgiving.
    Welcome to The U S.

    I hope this story is bullshit. Part of me thinks the queen is enough of an idiot to talk to Harry on her burner phone, then ask her courtiers to pencil in a visit. She is a lost cause, and is owed nothing.

  23. A says:

    This story strikes me as false for a number of reasons. 1. The queen is at balmoral and is supposedly staying till October. 2. Traveling with small children is hard enough, traveling with a small child and a baby during a resurgent pandemic to see people your not on the best terms with, seems asinine. 3. Finally, the Sussex’s at this point know the palace staff leak like waterfalls( hints: why they didn’t even bother telling them when Lilli was born till days later!) if they are coming to town at all my guess is they would keep there plans to themselves and let them know when they get there, if at all!

    • lanne says:

      Agreed. This kind of story exists to generate clicks. It stirs up the usual haters, and there’s enough plausible deniability to prevent charges of libel (they’ll come back sometime, so it’s okay if we say now). Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, move along.

  24. MsIam says:

    The only involvement of the Sussexes with the UK folk that was announced ahead of time was the Diana statue unveiling. And even then Harry didn’t officially confirm in the press he was going until the week of. So yeah, this is b.s. space filler for the Sun. If the Queen is going to see Lili in person, my money would be on them making a pit stop on the way home from the Invictus Games next year, if they even take place.

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Misam: Yeah, Harry and Meghan are never going to announce in advance when they will be visiting the UK.

    • equality says:

      If I were them I would put in a request with the courtiers for a time I didn’t even plan on being there just to get them to leak the wrong info and then come in unexpectedly.

  25. Islandgirl says:

    I am so glad that the only story the tabloids can find to print about the Sussexes and cause a distraction is this one.
    They don’t know anything about Harry and Meghan.

  26. molly says:

    The queen hasn’t come to christenings when she’s been hundreds of miles away. Why would she make such a big of folks traveling half a world away to see her for this one.

  27. Marivic says:

    I am very sure all the rota clowns are so excited to see the Sussexes back. They have long wished for them to come back. All these clowns and even the Brits, who gave H&M low popularity ratings, are waiting with bated breath in nervous and excited anticipation of the homecoming of the Sussexes. No matter how much these Brits deny it they want them back for their own selfish reasons. They’re the only Royals who matter to the world besides the Queen. All the rest are either lifeless/irrelevant or unknown. Any news about UK is often not read except when the news is about the Sussexes. These clowns need this family for their survival.

    I don’t believe the UK polls saying Harry and Meghan have plummeted in popularity. These polls are manipulated to give the clowns the results they want. And besides why do they alway conduct polls to survey the Sussexes popularity if they, according to the Brits, are irrelevant? The Sussexes are not British tax-funded anymore so why? These clowns, with William’s approval, want to make sure that they bombard the Sussexes with smears and slander their reputation enough to take them down. And they test the effectiveness of their campaign through these polls. The Brits are a petty lot.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Every time I see articles about the Sussexes returning, I side eye it. Also, the Rota clamoring to see them is a nonstarter because they are no longer working royals, whatever visit they make will be private and they don’t have to announce anything or appear anywhere for anyone in an official capacity. Would be interesting and a hot mess for the press over there, but they’d be lucky to get pics of them coming and going.

  28. Lizzie says:

    I have no opinion if they should return or not but if they do I am here for Meghan’s fashion.

  29. Julia K says:

    No. She is a new mom who is breast feeding and chasing a toddler. Remember what happened last time she was sent on a trip while recovering plus breast feeding? Exhaustion. Close to tears exhaustion. She needs to stay put and enjoy this baby at home.

  30. Leah says:

    I would definitely worry about the safety of H & M if they were to travel to England. After what I’ve read from their haters I’d not be surprised if there was one or more nutters who would follow through with their demented wishes. I mean it, too.

  31. blunt talker says:

    The possibility of this being true-Harry is suppose return later this year for some filming for the invictus or some other charity. This is still Harry’s grandmother no matter the situation-whether they go to see her is entirely their business and the queen’s

  32. lee says:

    I would think the Queen would want to see her two American great grandchildren. She isn’t hearing much good news regarding her eldest two sons right now and two small innocent children might give her some respite and positive press. It would certainly help with the Commonwealth. But if she refuses to see them, well I am sure everyone will survive. Some family break ups can’t be mended and at least no one can say Harry and Meghan didn’t try.
