LONDON, UK: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly fly to the UK in September. However, they won’t meet Prince William and Kate Middleton despite being each other’s neighbors, an expert claimed. It has been said that if the Sussexes will stay at Frogmore Cottage, the Cambridges will be living just 800m away since they are reportedly shifting to Adelaide Cottage.

As per reports, the former royal senior members will first take a flight to ​​Manchester on September 5 for the One Young World Summit where The Duchess of Sussex is expected to deliver the keynote speech at the opening ceremony. Then their next stop will be Germany "to commemorate a year until the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf on September 6," The Daily Mail reported. The report also said that the two will eventually land in London for the WellChild Awards on September 8.

Commenting on their upcoming visit, Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, told The Sun, "I don’t think they would bump into one another unless it was pre-arranged. I suppose one could go round with some flowers as a peace offering, but remember what happened last time.” Also, the couple's spokesperson said, "Prince Harry and Meghan are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September."

However, the couple is expected to meet the Queen. Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told MailOnline, "The reports that the Queen had invited Harry and Meghan to Balmoral were never confirmed. However it would only make sense for them to see her when she is at Windsor and when they are based at Frogmore, as they could only spend a very little time with her during the Platinum Jubilee."

He also stated, "If she does come down as anticipated, she may receive the new Prime Minister at Windsor or at Buckingham Palace. There would also be time for her and the Sussexes to discuss the future, which hopefully will be more constructive than the recent past. They also must be aware that some form of reconciliation in the Platinum Jubilee year would surely be beneficial for the image they want as philanthropists."

This future visit is happening months after Harry and Meghan along with their two children — Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor — went to London for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations in June. At that time also, they did not see William and Kate but had met the Monarch. Their daughter, who has been named after her great-grandmother and celebrated her first birthday on June 4, was also part of the meeting.

At the time, royal commentator Omid Scobie said, "I think people are expecting some sort of big birthday extravagant event, that we’re going to see photographs from. From what I’m told, we shouldn’t expect anything. Those moments with Lilibet are very much private between them and the Queen and of course we know how much she’s been looking forward to it."

He added, "They’ve been held back by a pandemic. Of course the times that Harry has been here it’s just been by himself for quite sombre occasions. And so this really was the first time. Of course we know the Queen went back to Windsor Castle, the couple went back to Windsor as well where they’re staying at Frogmore Cottage. So that would have been the first moment or the first chance for her to meet her namesake."
