Meghan Markle Prevents Prince Harry's UK Return, Loses Another Lucrative Deal: Reports

Meghan Markle reportedly does not want to return to the UK ever.

Prince Harry may have been eager to return to the UK to be closer to his family, but according to a royal author, Meghan Markle has ruled it out. The aspiration of the Duke of Sussex for a UK homecoming may have been dashed when it was claimed that his wife had no wish to ever return to England.

Meghan Markle Doesn’t Want To Comeback In The UK

Meghan Markle "never really felt at home" in the UK, according to Omid Scobie, author of “Finding Freedom” and the upcoming book “Endgame,” and "never wants to step foot in England again." It is also reported, per Express UK, that she refused to come to London for King Charles' coronation because she does not want to "dive back into the soap opera [we would like to add "old" soap opera...] of the court."

Despite Meghan Markle's refusal to travel to the UK, the Sussexes appear to want to maintain a strong relationship with King Charles, according to Omid, who revealed they have been keeping him "up to date with their family life by sending him photos of the children."

Most, if not all, royal fans can recall that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry famously left the royal family in 2020 to start a new life with their kids in Montecito, California. Though the couple appears willing to mend fences with King Charles, the planned book by Omid Scobie, branded "Meghan's mouthpiece" by many, could complicate the couple's reintegration into the family even more.

The book is billed as "a probing look at the current state of the British monarchy." "An unpopular king, a power-hungry heir to the throne, a queen willing to go to dangerous lengths to preserve her image, and a prince forced to start a new life after being betrayed by his own family,” it continued.

For starters, Omid Scobie is also the author of the 2020 book "Finding Freedom," which disclosed details about Harry and Meghan's marriage and connection with the Royal Family. The biography was allegedly unauthorized, but it was later proven in court that the Duchess of Sussex was aware of it, with Scobie receiving assistance from a former staffer to Meghan Markle.

Meghan Markle Missed Out On A Lucrative Deal

Meghan Markle just missed out on a lucrative contract with luxury fashion house Dior, which went to “The Crown” actress Meg Bellamy. The Duchess of Sussex had long been rumored to be the next face of the French design house.

Meg, who plays Princess Kate in the series, appears to be prepared to sign the contract. Although a source previously stated that marketers have been "queuing up for Meg" due to her role in the royal drama, a public relations expert claims Prince Harry's wife can still benefit from Dior even if she misses out on the agreement.

"This works for Meghan because since there's a royal connection, she will get just as much coverage as she would if she had become the face of Dior. Arguably, it's less risky for her because if she failed as a spokeswoman, she would be banned from fashion,” PR expert Matt Yanofsky told the Mirror. According to sources, "brands have been queuing up" for the Crown actress, who is being treated like an "A-list princess."

"They have been queuing up for Meg; she is playing the most famous woman in the world in a globally famous television drama, so many labels and brands want some of that. She is a total unknown, but she is being treated like Kate, an A-list princess,” an insider told Mail Online.

According to another William Morris Endeavor source, Meghan Markle's new agency, Ari Emanuel, wants to push her as a top fashion influencer. "We knew the Spotify announcement was coming. It might be a shock to everyone else but we've been working on the rebranding of Meghan for weeks. Ari is the best in the business when it comes to corporate deals and making money. He's excited to be representing Meghan and has thrown all his energy into it. The offers have been pouring in, including from other podcast platforms,” the informant said.
