Charles ‘will need’ Harry and Meghan when he’s king – expert

Prince Charles “will need” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when he becomes king because the Sussexes are highly valuable to the UK, a royal expert has claimed.

On Tuesday (May 10), the Prince of Wales attended the Opening of the State Parliament on behalf of the monarch, which gave a glimpse of what life could be like under his reign.

His attendance marked the first time that he has represented the Queen in this way, as he was accompanied by Camilla and Prince Williamwho are both set to take on central roles in his desired slimmed down monarchy.

With his kingship starting to come into clearer focus, Royal biographer Tina Brown believes that Meghan and Harry could return to the firm, reports Daily Express.

The author of ‘The Palace Papers’ told the podcast Royally Obsessed: “My guess is Charles is really going to want them back – sort of need them back actually – because Harry and Meghan were huge assets to the whole royal repertoire quite frankly.

“They had a young appeal that was very, very potent in the country.”

Meghan and Harry stepped down from their positions in the Royal Family in 2020.

Initially, they had hoped to carve out more “progressive roles” in the monarchy by both representing Her Majesty the Queen and pursuing their own commercial interests.

However, the ‘half in, half out’ approach has been rejected, and the couple have since spent the majority of their time in the US.

Last month, ahead of attending the Invictus Games in the Netherlands, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex secretly returned to the UK.

Having been spotted by a group of royal fans, it was revealed that Meghan and Harry had met with Charles and Camilla, and later the Queen in Windsor.

Following their meeting with the Queen – which Harry spoke fondly of in the days after – it was reported that the couple had been invited to join the Royal Family during the monarch’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The Duke and Duchess have since confirmed that they will be in attendance during the four-day weekend.

A spokesperson for Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, said they were “excited and honored” to return to the UK.

They will be accompanied by their two children – Archie, who has not returned to the UK since the Sussexes’ exit, and Lilibet, who has never visited her father’s home country.
