Prince Harry, Meghan Markle are looking to split time between UK and US: ‘That was the original idea’

started looking into finding a UK home that he and his wife could keep for visiting instead of having to check into hotels each time.And according to former royal butler Grant Harrold, the rumored plan could be a strong indicator that the pair are looking to inch closer to Harry’s estranged family.“If Harry does buy a place in the UK, he and Meghan will live here for part of they year and part of the year in the States, that was the original idea,” Harrold exclusively told The Post.“I would assume that this would mean Meghan would also be coming to the UK and you’d see them spending so many months of the year here.”While the Sussexes are reportedly looking to add a UK property to their already-impressive real estate portfolio — which currently boasts a sprawling $14 million California mansion — Harrold notes that he doesn’t see the “Suits” alum moving back to London on a permanent basis.“I don’t see Meghan wanting to be in the UK permanently — I think that was the whole idea of why they went out to the States in the first place,” Harrold, who worked for King Charles for seven years when he was the Prince of Wales, said.“I can believe that Harry would like to be back here, he loves the UK.

Prince Harry searching for a UK home as his friends are not visiting over ‘rifts’ with Meghan Markle: report
something he’s been doing since last year.After being evicted from Frogmore Cottage in June 2023, Harry and Meghan have not had a permanent place to stay on his home soil.According to royal commentator and expert Tom Quinn, the father of two is “sad” that he no longer has a British address to his name.“As time goes by, Harry misses some aspects of his old life in the UK,” Quinn told The Mirror.“Inevitably, the honeymoon period where everything in the States is new and exciting is coming to an end and Harry is looking back at the past through rose-tinted spectacles.”Quinn added that Harry misses his schoolmates and army friends, “many of whom have not visited as they don’t get on with Meghan.”“Harry is determined to find his own permanent home in the UK, which is partly why he’s continuing his legal action to get the British taxpayer to pay for his security,” he added, referring to London High Court’s decision to strip the Sussexes of taxpayer-funded UK security protection.The Post has reached out to reps for the Sussexes for comment.Earlier this year, Harry was ordered to pay 90% of the UK Home Office’s legal costs for defending the court’s initial ruling.In February, Sir Peter Lane, the judge of the High Court, ruled that there was no unlawfulness in stripping Harry and Meghan of their security in Feb.

Prince Harry being forced to stay at London hotel shows ‘deteriorated’ relationship with royals: ‘It’s sad’
forced to check into a hotel room during his brief return to London this week.The Duke of Sussex, 39, touched down on home soil Tuesday to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.But as the royal rift between him and the Firm rages on, Harry reportedly set up camp at a luxe London hotel for his stay.“I think that just shows the state of the relationship between Harry and the family,” Grant Harrold, who worked for Charles for seven years when he was the Prince of Wales, exclusively told The Post.“Obviously Harry did have apartments at Clarence House. Clarence House is a huge property — it just goes to show the divisions between him and the family.”“If you come to the UK and you have family here, you would probably stay with them, wouldn’t you? I think it’s a very clear signal that the relationship between Harry and his family has deteriorated,” Harrold said on behalf of Fruity Slots, adding that the situation is “sad.”The Post has reached out to Harry’s reps for comment.Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, were last year evicted from Frogmore Cottage — a royal residence they thought would “always be there for them.”The pair were gifted the property’s rent lease by the late Queen Elizabeth II after their 2018 wedding.

King Charles hopes to play ‘peacemaker’ between sons Harry and William during rumored May trip
10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.And it seems as though both camps are looking to put the past behind them, as the monarch, 75, is reportedly considering playing “peacemaker” between the feuding brothers.Palace sources claim that Charles has given Harry the go-ahead about a potential meetup with the Prince of Wales.“It is very likely that Harry and William will see each other next month and anything is possible. The King will want the brothers to patch things up so it’s more than likely that he could play peacemaker,” a source told Sky News Australia.“King Charles wants to make a peace deal between Harry and William in his life,” a separate insider told the outlet.The Post has reached out to Buckingham Palace and reps for the Sussexes for comment.While Harry’s rumored trip is still unconfirmed, it’s believed that celebrations will take place at St Paul’s Cathedral.It’s unclear if the trip will be yet another solo venture, following hot on the heels of his mad dash to his home soil in February.It’s believed that the Duke did not see William, the heir to the throne, during his blink-and-you-miss-it 24-hour trip to London last month.What’s more, Harry stayed at a luxe London hotel rather than with family at one of their many royal residences peppered across the country.The Waleses have had a yearslong rift with the Sussexes, but last month it was reported that the pair may be looking to bury the hatchet once and for all.The Prince and Princess of Wales have reportedly asked the Sussexes to bring their children with them the next time they visit the UK, but apparently, Markle has politely passed up on the offer.
