Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announce surprise UK visit amid royal family feud

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to visit the UK next month to attend charity events.

Harry and Meghan will also visit Germany as part of their trip to support “several charities close to their hearts”, their spokesperson said.

The couple will travel to Manchester for the One Young World Summit, an event which brings together young leaders from more than 190 countries, on 5 September.

The Duchess of Sussex is a counsellor for the organisation, alongside Justin Trudeau, Sir Richard Branson, and Jamie Oliver, among others.

They will then head to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event, before returning to the UK for the WellChild Awards on September 8.

Their visit to the UK will be the first time they have been back in the country since the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in early June.

A spokesperson for the couple 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.”

Meghan and Harry were seen attending the Platinum Jubilee service at St Pauls Cathedral among other Royal guests to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign.

During their time in the UK, the pair were able to introduce their daughter Lilibet to her great-grandmother for the first time.

The Jubilee service was the only event the Sussexes opted to go to after finding the celebrations “difficult”, according to a royal expert.

Royal author Tina Brown discussed Meghan and Harry’s decision to miss out on the rest of the Jubilee as she appeared on Lorraine.

Ms Brown said: "It was great that they were able to introduce Lilibet to the Queen. I'm sure that everyone wanted that to happen. But it clearly was uncomfortable that they were there but not really present. It was awkward.”

This year has seen the Sussexes reunite with the Queen several times, though each meeting has been brief.

Harry secretly visited his grandmother two months before the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, in April, after travelling to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

News of the Sussexes return to the UK comes after it was predicted that Harry might return to a new role in the country when his dad Prince Charles becomes King — with or without Meghan by his side.

Speaking on Mirror's Pod Save the Queen podcast, Ken Wharfe said: “I just cannot see [Meghan and Harry] forever more living in California. It's clear to me that Harry is not quite a fish out of sea.

“His involvement with his military charities — quite how he runs that on the other side of the Atlantic, I don't know. But I just have this feeling that he could well be back in a new role — with or without Meghan.”
