The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were recently in New York for a Global Citizen live event to call for vaccine equity
Meghan Markle is not expected to move across the pond any time soon.
The claim was made by royal writer Robert Jobson, who alleged that the Duchess of Sussex would avoid making royal appearances in Britain “until the dust settles” after her 2020 exit with her husband Prince Harry.
“I’m not sure Meghan will ever come to the UK again,” he said recently us weekly. “He’s Not Popular [right] Now.”
As for the Duke of Sussex, Jobson told the outlet he would return for Queen Elizabeth II’s upcoming Platinum Jubilee, a celebration that honors the reigning monarch’s seven decades of service to the Commonwealth. The outlet noted that the 95-year-old is the first British royal to reach the major milestone.

“But you have to remember that within months they have a book coming out… it’s going to be pretty weird,” Jobson said.
Still, he predicted that the ongoing royal drama would be kept under wraps for the Queen’s sake.
“The focus shouldn’t be whether Meghan is happy or not, or whether Harry is looking at his brother the wrong way.” [Prince William]… the queen deserves much more than this,” he said.

Back in April, royal writer Anna Pasternak told Granthshala News she doesn’t believe Markle will return to the UK
“Will Meghan Markle return to the UK? My speculative answer would be no, if she can’t help it,” she said at the time. “Unfortunately, I can never see her become a dear and cherished member of the royal family with the unified respect and adoration of the British people. I think the ship has sailed.”
According to Pasternak, the biggest mistake when joining “The Firm” is to confuse celebrity with royalty.
“Joining the family comes with a lot of restrictions that Meghan clearly didn’t want,” she said. “You can’t confuse celebrity with royalty. Duty always comes first.”
When asked what she believes the future holds for the couple, Pasternak replied, “It’s the million dollar question.”
“I can see Meghan being supported by powerful people and eventually trying for political office,” she said. “I think she has an ambition that knows no bounds. So I wouldn’t be surprised if that was part of her agenda. All the power to her, if that’s really what she wants.”
Markle, a former American actress, became the Duchess of Sussex when she married the 37-year-old British prince at Windsor Castle in May 2018. The couple welcomed a son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in 2019.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departure from royal duties began in 2020, in what they described as intrusive British media and racist attitudes towards the former “Suits” star, 40. The family now resides in the coastal city of Montecito, Calif.

In the wake of leaving royal duties, he gave an explosive TV interview to Oprah Winfrey in March, in which the couple made painful comments describing how dark Archie’s skin could be before his birth. The Duchess spoke about the deep isolation she felt inside the royal family that led her to contemplate suicide.
Buckingham Palace said the racism allegations leveled by the couple were “relatable” and would be addressed privately.
On June 4, the couple welcomed their second child, a daughter named Lilibet “Lily” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
