Following reports that Charles, the Prince of Wales, invited his youngest son Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle to stay with him on their next visit to London, sources say it is likely that the Duchess of Sussex would decline the offer. 

"Of course, when you are married, your partner has a say in it all; and I don’t believe Meghan ever wants to come back here," royal expert Angela Levin explained. "She would find it very difficult to stay with Prince Charles and the duchess [of Cornwall] because I think she would be quite awkward about it all."

Their much-anticipated trip to cross the Atlantic with children Archie and Lilibet for Prince Philip's memorial remains in limbo due to a lack of police protection, Marie Claire reported.

The family, which has since been living in Montecito, California, after Harry and Meghan left their royal duties, is also expected to make an appearance for the Queen's Jubilee celebrations in June.

In recent months, Prince Charles and Prince Harry grew more distant, especially following the February 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview, where Meghan revealed concerns from senior royals about the skin complexion of their babies.

Last year, Charles rejected claims he was the royal family member who made such remarks, as alleged by the book “Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan” written by Christopher Andersen.

Andersen further claims the comments came on the day that Harry and Markle’s engagement was announced in November 2017, Global News noted.

Regardless, Prince Charles is now working to smooth things over and reached out to his son Harry on several occasions, including his invitation for the Sussexes to stay with him during their supposed visit for various royal affairs.

"Prince Charles loves Harry and he’s been devastated by his behavior—he’s making a hugely important offer, you'd think he would feel resentful but he's not going down that route,” Levin added.” "He’s trying to encourage Harry into the royal fold, not necessarily into the Royal Family, but into being good friends."

An insider familiar with the situation also claimed that Charles wanted to spend quality time with Harry and Meghan’s kids Archie, 2, and Lilibet, aged seven months, who has not yet been to the U.K, according to Elle.
