Meghan Markle, the wife of Britain’s Prince Harry, has refused to travel to Britain to meet the royal family, the Daily Mail reported, citing sources.
According to the publication, Markle will not accompany her husband on the trip, and will remain in the United States. The decision was made for “personal and practical” reasons, but the sources stressed that the situation may change.
It is noted that in making her decision, Markle takes into account the situation with the pandemic coronavirus and restrictions on international flights imposed because of COVID-19. In case she finally refuses to travel, her son Archie will also remain in the United States.
Markle and her spouse were expected to visit the U.K. for the first time this summer since her move to the U.S. last year.
In November, Meghan Markle spoke out about the loss of her second child. She also urged not to gloss over the topic of miscarriages, but to share her pain.
In January 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their desire to give up their duties as senior members of the royal family and gain financial independence from Buckingham Palace. After much discussion, the couple gained this right, despite disappointment with this choice on the part of Queen Elizabeth II.
