Meghan’s ‘fears’ over Prince Harry
Speaking to Closer, the royal source alleged why they think the invite is a bittersweet one for Meghan.
“It’s a bittersweet invite for Meghan, because on one hand it fuels her and Harry’s confidence that they are very much still part of the family, but after so much time away, she fears Harry will be lured back into the fold and want to return to the UK,” they alleged.
Meghan doesn’t doubt that Harry is committed to spending the rest of his life in America.
“Meghan doesn’t doubt that Harry is committed to spending the rest of his life in America, but does have certain trepidation over how these types of visits can pull at his heartstrings.”
“She’s been aware of Harry’s homesickness for some time, and she can see just how excited he is to show more of his heritage to their children, without the attention and security fears that surrounded them in London,” they also claimed.
ED! has contacted Meghan’s reps for comment.
At risk of ‘burning out’ royal status?
News of Meghan’s reported fears comes after a royal expert claimed she and Harry are “burning out their royal status“.
Tom Bower, author of a bombshell new royal biography about Meghan and Harry, made the claim in a recent interview.
Speaking on Mailplus channel Palace Confidential, Tom claimed: “They’re burning out their royal status pretty fast now.”
He then continued, saying: “They are constantly searching for new things to do. But it always comes back to the royals.”
Bower also spoke about how the Sussexes flew back for the Jubilee to take pictures with the Queen.
Palace aides reportedly stopped Meghan and Harry from taking pictures with the Queen for their Netflix show.
“I think they’ll in the end have to give that up because it won’t wash well,” he also said.
