Let the games begin: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrive in UK after 'flying commercial'
There is no confirmation of whether they have brought their kids along or will they be visiting the queen
The Duke and Duchess landed on Saturday, September 3, making their first visit to Harry’s hometown since the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, as per Hello!. It is still unconfirmed whether they have brought their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, on this working trip.
The royal couple is currently staying at Frogmore Cottage, just 15 minutes away from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s new house Adelaide Cottage. So far, it is believed that Meghan and Harry have no plans to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The couple’s visit to Britain was confirmed in August by their spokesperson. He said, "Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September."
The couple will first visit Manchester, where they will attend the One Young World summit, an event that brings together young leaders from over 190 countries. Meghan, a counselor for the organization, is also scheduled to give keynotes address at the opening ceremony of this summit. Then, the couple will fly to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event. Finally, they will return to the UK for the WellChild Awards scheduled on September 8.
There is no confirmation if they will visit the Queen, who is currently staying in Balmoral Castle and where she will continue to stay for the next few weeks as concerns grow over her mobility issues. Earlier, it was reported that the couple was not planning to visit her Majesty there because of the ongoing security dispute.
This trip comes just days after Meghan grabbed headlines for her interview with The Cut Magazine, which soured her relationship with the royal family. The royals were "upset" and even organized "emergency meetings," with Prince Charles and Prince William at loggerheads over how to get things under control.
