Prince Harry has now returned to the United Kingdom. While Meghan Markle is still nowhere to be found, the Sussex couple is set to attend their final set of royal engagements in the next few weeks.
It was recently announced that the Megxit deal will officially start at the end of the month. So, by the start of April, they will no longer be senior members of the Royal Family and will then start to live "financially independent" from The Firm.
The engagements that the Duke and Duchess are required to attend will include the annual service for the Commonwealth Day. They will reportedly join the rest of the British Royal Family, including the extended members of the Windsor clan.
However, these engagements did not mention Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's upcoming wedding. Although many experts and fans are certain that they are all invited for the nuptials, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may reportedly "snub" the couple's private and "intimate" wedding.
According to The Telegraph, sources who are close to the York Princesses revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may not attend the wedding. The reason being is that they allegedly think that they are "bigger than the institution."
The sources also went on to attest that the relationship between the Yorks and the Sussexes is no longer the same as before. It is "not what it was," one source described.
As added by The Sun UK, the growing "tension" between the two families started when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married in 2018. As it happened, the couple "chose" not to invite the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson.
This was then followed by the apparent "irritation" toward the Duke and Duchess when they reportedly "sabotaged" Princess Eugenie's wedding in the same year. Based on reports, the Sussex couple chose to announce their pregnancy during the reception of the youngest York Princess' wedding to Jack Brooksbank.
Even so, the sources pointed out that they are still likely invited to the wedding. Accordingly, it will be all up to them if they choose to ignore it or not.
While the controversies surrounding this matter continue to develop in recent days, Page Six noted that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have already "penciled in" the date of the wedding in their schedule. It was also reported that they will return on or before May 29 to attend the event that is significant for the Royal Family, especially to the York household.
