Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly leveraging their two children as their security disputes with the Home Office continue. They are using the young royals as leverage with Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II, according to Star magazine.
Sources stated that the two senior members of the British Royal Family are already "desperate" to see their grandson from the couple again. They, also, want to meet the youngest member of the Sussex household, who is now seven months.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be "holding them hostage." They want to secure their protection first before flying to the United Kingdom.
The claims come after the Home Office denied the youngest Wales' prince's requests, with him paying for police protection while in the United Kingdom.
While the security row does exist, the same cannot be said about the latest allegations toward Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The insiders have failed to provide any evidence to support the assertions.
No one can confirm whether the two former working royals are, indeed, using their children as leverage. Members of the British Royal Family have yet to make a comment, as well, and this, also, applies to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Accordingly, the entire narrative appears to be mere speculation as the controversy develops further.
A royal expert believes, however, that Prince Charles is eager to meet Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's youngest child. Nick Bullen told Us Weekly that the future King is "incredibly sad about everything that has gone on."
He continued that the upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebration is a "perfect opportunity" for a reconnection between the British Royals and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to happen. He added that all the members of the Firm "have to play nicely and behave well" because it is Queen Elizabeth II's moment.
As noted, the event, which will take place on June 2, 2022, will honor the reigning monarch following her seven decades in power. Alongside this, they will, also, celebrate the Queen's 96th birthday, so the royals are aware that the headlines should focus only on her.
Meanwhile, it remains unclear whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will still fly back to the United Kingdom. This comes as experts believe that the Home Office is "not backing down" with its decision.
Nevertheless, the Duke of Sussex has already sought a judicial review over the matter. Therefore, the public can only know about the Sussex Royals' plans for sure when they release an official announcement in the next few weeks or months.
