We All Know Prince Harry Will Go Home – Will Meghan Markle Join Him?

We all know Prince Harry is eventually going to return home to the U.K. The question is: Will Meghan Markle accompany him?
  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are “house guests” in Los Angeles for now, having left Vancouver Island in Canada.
  • They’re at the beginning of their new life of “freedom” and financial “independence.”
  • There’s a good chance Prince Harry will return to the U.K. within the next 12 months. Will Meghan join him?

We all know that cracks are starting to appear in the new “free” life that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are enjoying in Los Angeles.

While Meghan and Harry fans stick their heads in the sand and refuse to believe anything could possibly be wrong with their favorite Disney prince and princess, the rest of us can see the truth.

All is not well for the Duke and Duchess of Malibu.

Brits don’t want Meghan Markle and Harry back – they may be disappointed

While most reports and polls would indicate that the British public, in general, doesn’t want Meghan Markle and Harry back, they may end up being disappointed.

What many fans and critics of the couple don’t realize is that the deal they negotiated with the Queen and other senior royals gave both sides an out. The arrangement will undergo a “review” after 12 months.

Theoretically, if things haven’t gone as planned, could we see Prince Harry and Meghan Markle slink back into the royal fold?

We’ve all seen the reports. And while it’s important to take what we read in the media with a large pinch of salt, there’s no smoke without fire.

Can this many sources and media outlets be wrong when they claim Prince Harry isn’t all that happy in the United States?

Let’s face it. He’s there because it’s the epicenter of where Meghan Markle believes she has to be to cash in on her new royal celebrity.

If Meghan Markle concocted this split to remove Prince Harry entirely from his support network, it’s been a success. He’s now wholly reliant on Meghan, which probably suits her agenda.

Los Angeles is where her mother lives. And it’s where many of her friends are based. But Prince Harry? He’s thousands of miles away from any of his old friends and his former life.

This Hollywood excursion has been a royal failure

Elephant documentaries and Thomas the Tank Engine readings aside, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have failed to make a big splash in Hollywood since absconding from the U.K.

Granted, the coronavirus isn’t helping, but it’s not as if the movers and shakers in Hollywood are falling over themselves to talk to her on Zoom!

What if this new propaganda-style book they’re having written is as good as it’s going to get? What then?

When their 12-month review arrives, will the royal family urge Harry and Meghan to return to the U.K.?

Then again, what if the whole project falls apart before the 12-month experiment is even up? It’s getting harder and harder to see Prince Harry making it that long in Hollywood, surrounded by a foreign culture and people that are utterly alien to him.

He’s long said he wants to be “normal,” but I don’t think he’ll enjoy not being the Prince. He’s not royalty out there.

He’s Meghan Markle’s slightly awkward husband. Most likely the butt of many jokes.

That’s why I’m confident Prince Harry will be back. Meghan Markle? I’m not so sure. And going by those polls, that may not be a bad thing.
