Meghan Markle will not be flying to the UK along with Prince Harry for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue. The statue, which is going to be unveiled at Diana's former Kensington Palace home on July 1, 2021, is set to mark what would have been her 60th birthday.

For a while now, it has been a subject of debate whether Meghan would attend the ceremony especially since she did not travel for Prince Philip's funeral either. Previous reports had also mentioned that the duchess would be joining her husband — that she did not want Harry to travel alone like the last time.

The latest reports now say that Meghan won't be returning to the UK with Harry as she just had a baby Lilibet. Harry and William are expected to make separate speeches at the unveiling, but Meghan won't be there. A source close to the Sussexes said, "Meghan is not going to travel. She has just had a baby and Harry will travel alone."

ITV News' royals reporter Lizzie Robinson and the Daily Telegraph's acting royal correspondent Victoria Ward also took to Twitter to share the latest updates. "Meghan will not fly to the UK to join Harry for the unveiling of a statue of his late mother Princess Diana on July 1st, a source confirmed after a US website claimed she would be attending," Robinson wrote. "The Duchess of Sussex will not fly to the UK to join Harry for the unveiling of a statue of his late mother, sources confirm, after a US website claimed she would join him. She’s just had a baby, they point out," Ward shared. 



 



 

MEAWW had previously reported an insider's revelation that Meghan apparently "knows how hard it was to attend his grandfather’s funeral alone and doesn’t want that to happen again". Adding that Harry was "given the cold shoulder by most of his relatives, with several refusing to talk to him or even make eye contact". "Since the funeral things have got worse, not better, so you can only imagine how he will be treated at the big event on July 1."

And it looks like many social media users from across the pond are actually glad that Meghan won't be going. "I think that's the best decision. Its going to be a lovely day then," one tweeted. "She was never invited. She puts the PR pieces out on purpose to keep herself in the spotlight. She’s desperate to be linked to the royals," another user added. "Don't worry, there will be a big screen next to the statue and she will preach from her bench," another user took a jab. 



 



 



 

Another user taunted, "I predict that on July 1st, Meghan Markle will unveil Lili Diana, in honour of Princess Diana, and recite an impassioned poem about her late mother in law. It's so HER- and she'll say she's doing it "in honour of" when it's actually disrespectful and attention seeking."

Some users decided it was best to ask the more important questions. For instance, one tweeted, "Anyone with common sense would have known Meghan was not going to go as she just had Lili, it seems this foolish story came out so the media could get the clicks they crave, haters can bully them some more and that the story could be a distraction from Andrew."
