Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are yet to bring their kids, Archie and Lilibet, to the U.K. to reunite with the royal family since they stepped down as senior royals in 2020. With that said, one royal commentator believes Prince Charles is "desperate" to see his grandchildren, but will they meet soon?
There's no confirmation yet if Prince Harry will bring his kids to the U.K. It has been two years since the royal family has seen Archie, while they're yet to meet Lilibet in person since her birth in June 2021.
However, it looks like these kids are yet to see their grandfather and it may take a long while before they can meet them due to their parents' security fears. Daily Mirror's royal editor Russell Myers revealed the future king is now longing to see the Sussexes' kids, but his son's legal battle against the Home Office gets in the way.
Allegedly, this stops Prince Harry from coming back to the U.K. In an interview with "Nine News' Today," via Express, Myers said the Duke of Sussex has put himself in a "difficult position."
Prince Harry claimed his home country had become a more dangerous place than California because of his current security row. So, if he doesn't manage to sort this thing out with the Home Office and the British Government, it may take a really long while before he can return to Britain.
This news comes after the Sussexes' spokesperson confirmed Prince Harry would miss his grandfather's, Prince Philip, memorial service on March 29 in Westminster Abbey. Though the spokesman didn't reveal the reason behind his decision, he still hoped to visit his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, soon.
People reported last month that Meghan Markle's husband didn't "feel safe" to bring his children to the U.K. after losing his tax-payer funded police protection. His attorney Shaheed Fatima told the High Court in London at the time that her client had concerns over their security arrangement after they stepped down as senior royals in January 2020.
After they announced their decision to leave their royal roles, they started to lose their public-funded protection in the U.K. They're now paying their own security in the U.S. privately.
However, they couldn't do the same in the U.K., as they were later told they couldn't pay for police protection even though it would come from their own pockets. This means that if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit the U.K. with Archie and Lilibet, they will not be entitled to "state-funded protection and the deep level of security intelligence that comes with it."
