The Sussexes are back in California. Page Six confirms Prince Harry and Meghan Markle flew back following the culmination of the royal mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II. The celebrity couple attended Her Majesty’s funeral on Tuesday, Sept. 19, and traveled home the following day — crucially, before the Duchess of Sussex could speak to her father-in-law. Meghan requested a one-on-one meeting with King Charles before leaving the UK, according to a well-placed source.
Royal expert Neil Sean made the startling claim on his YouTube channel, revealing the chat would’ve been «an opportunity to clear the air, pull the rights from wrongs and explain some of the rationale behind what they’ve been doing over the last two years.» Although the Sussexes, who spectacularly defected from the royal family in January 2020, weren’t spotted disembarking at LAX, a black SUV was photographed shuttling them away from the airport accordingly.
It’s understood Meghan and Harry’s two young children, Archie and Lilibet, stayed behind with her mother, Doria Ragland, in Montecito while they were away. Suffice to say, they’re probably relieved to finally be home considering how tough the UK trip ended up being.
