The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are considering flying their two children to Britain after the Queen’s death, reports say.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle happened to already be in the UK when doctors sounded the alarm over Her Majesty’s health on Thursday
Now, they are expected to remain here at least until her funeral on September 19.
Having already been separated from Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, for more than a week, the couple are considering whether to ask Meghan’s mum Doria to travel to the UK with them, reports The Telegraph.
Many were excited to see the return of the ‘Fab Four’ yesterday as Harry and Meghan reunited with Prince William and Kate to view the floral tributes for the late monarch.
It is reported that the future King William extended the olive branch to his brother because he “thought it was an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family”.
Royal fans hope the reconciliation could put the relationship between the royal siblings on the road to recovery – something “the Queen would want”.
It remains unclear what role, if any, the Sussexes will play in the royal procession that will follow the Queen’s coffin in the coming days.
Plans for royals to play important roles at the funeral are also being kept under wraps for now.
At the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June, there was a distinction between working and non-working royals.
Insiders apparently said Meghan and Harry want to keep the focus firmly on the Queen’s honor amid ongoing family drama.
Earlier in September, Meghan said “forgiveness is very important” when asked about the situation.
Speaking to The Cut, she added: ‘It takes a lot of effort to forgive. I’ve really made an active effort, especially knowing that I can say anything.”
The duchess added that Harry had told her: “I lost my dad in the process.”
“It doesn’t have to be the same for them as it was for me, but that’s his decision,” he said.
The mother-of-two is believed to have delayed the next episode of her new podcast and canceled an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon following the Queen’s death.
Meanwhile, she and Harry will not appear at the UN General Assembly as planned.
The royals are likely still at an impasse over Harry’s upcoming memoir, with the prince promising to share “a definitive account of the experiences that shaped him”.
