A royal expert has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan are considering returning to the UK to celebrate Christmas with their children and the Windsors.
Author of Harry And Meghan: Life, Loss, And Love Katie Nicholl says that the festive holidays could be the perfect opportunity to help heal the family rift.
It comes after Meghan Markle’s father Thomas and brother Thomas Jnr hinted that they hoped to resolve their lengthy feud despite the Duchess previously telling Oprah that it would be “hard to reconcile”.
Katie told Closer magazine: “Because of Meghan’s work as a philanthropist, it doesn’t sit very well that she has no relationship with anyone in her family apart from her mother, Doria.
“We’ve seen her father reach out publicly in a bid to reconcile with his daughter and apologise on numerous occasions.
“Meghan does risk appearing unforgiving and uncaring of her father, who’s getting older and isn’t in great health. There are now two grandchildren Thomas Snr hasn’t met, which must be upsetting.”
However, the royal author adds that while it would be a good idea to reconnect with family, the focus at this current time is likely to be on Meghan and Harry making amends with the Windsors.
“When Harry and Meghan left, they made it clear they didn’t want to give up their home in Britain,” said Katie.
“They still have Frogmore Cottage and their plan was to come back to the UK.”
“Christmas is being looked at as an opportunity. There may be a softening, which could pave the way for the healing of the family rift.
“It’s certainly what the Queen wants. Prince Charles would like to see his grandchildren. A meet-up suggests they hope to move on and sort things out.”
