Prince Harry says he and Meghan will NEVER move back to the UK
Prince Harry today declared that he and his wife Meghan Markle would never return to the UK or become full-time members of the royal family again – just hours after they indicated the couple would never give up their official titles.
Harry, 38, made the dramatic claims in a series of television interviews to promote his new memoir, Spare, and told Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan that he “don’t think it’ll ever be possible” that his Family returns permanently to his home country.
The Duke continued his vehement attacks on the British press, claiming the media would make his family’s life “unsurvivable” if they ever returned to Britain, saying: “I don’t think that even if there was an agreement or a there would be agreement between me and my family there is this third party [the British press] That will do everything possible to ensure that this is not possible and will not prevent us from returning but will make it unsurvivable.
Harry and Meghan, 41, moved to California from the UK in early 2020 and have been raising their two children, Archie and Lilibet, since early 2021 in a $14.65 million mansion in Montecito – thousands of miles from the Duke’s family.
Although Harry has admitted he doesn’t think they’ll ever return to the UK or royal life full-time, he’s also hinted that he and Meghan will never relinquish their official titles.
Prince Harry has revealed he and Meghan will likely never return to the UK full-time – or rejoin the monarchy as working royals
Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, moved to the United States in 2020 and have been raising their two children, Archie and Lilibet, in a $14.65 million mansion in California since early 2021
In an interview with 60 Minutes, the Duke dodged a question from host Anderson Cooper, who asked him why he and Meghan didn’t simply relinquish their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex, given his clear antipathy to the monarchy’s directives.
“And what difference would that make?” was his only answer.
Cooper said: “One of the criticisms you’ve received is that you want to move to California and step down from the institutional role. Why so public? Why reveal conversations you had with your father or with your brother? You say you tried to do this in private.”
Harry replied: “Every time I’ve tried privately there have been briefings and leaks and stories against me and my wife.
“You know, the family motto is: never complain, never explain. But it’s just a motto. And it doesn’t really last.’
The couple first made the shocking announcement that they would step down from royal duties on January 8, 2020.
At the time, they wrote in a joint statement that they made the decision after “many months of thought and internal discussions.”
They said they wanted to “work to become financially independent while continuing to give their full support to Her Majesty The Queen”.
On Sunday night, Harry hinted to 60 Minutes host Anderson Cooper that he and Meghan would never give up their royal titles, asking: “What difference would that make?”
A recent poll in December found that 98 per cent of respondents still want the couple to be stripped of their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles
“We now plan to balance our time between the UK and North America and continue to carry out our duty to the Queen, the Commonwealth and our Patronages,” the statement continued.
“This geographic balance will allow us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also giving our family the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. “
At the time, the statement sparked outrage from critics – who insisted the couple couldn’t have “one foot in, one foot out”.
Many people also urged them to give up their royal titles and live as members of the public.
Those cries have only grown louder in the years since, with Harry and Meghan both launching multiple attacks on the royal family, starting with their inflammatory Oprah interview – and continuing with more television appearances, a Netflix documentary and the release of Harry’s bombshell memoir , which he has promoted in a number of on-air interviews.
A December poll found that 98 per cent of respondents still want the couple stripped of their titles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex – particularly after the couple aired their bombastic Netflix documentaries, which made several explosive allegations about their time as royals contained.
On the series, the couple claimed to have been victims of “institutional gaslighting” and accused the royal family of lying to protect Harry’s brother Prince William.
Harry also said on the series that he told his father, King Charles II, that he and Meghan were willing to give up their titles during discussions about their plan to move to America – although that appears to be no longer the case .
