Queen summons Meghan and Harry back to the UK

Queen summons Meghan and Harry back to the UK

Her Majesty has called back Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from their relaxed new life in Canada to attend a Commonwealth Service.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to Canada after announcing they were quitting royal life and becoming “financially independent”.

The 93-year-old monarch has reportedly asked them to return to the UK next month for the service at Westminster Abbey.

The couple attended the Commonwealth Service last year with Meghan heavily pregnant with Archie.

If the couple attend the March 9 event, it will be the first royal engagement for Meghan since the couple quit.

The Sunday Times reported the couple will make a round of final engagements in March before returning to North America. 

However, the Queen is “remarkably unfazed” by the couple’s decision to start a new life in Canada.

“If that’s what they want, if they want to go, we must let them go,” she told friends.

Prince Harry made his first public appearance at JPMorgan’s Miami billionaire’s summit, where he gave a speech and was reportedly paid $1 million plus expenses for the opportunity.

The couple were reportedly flown on the JPMorgan private jet from Vancouver to Palm Beach and the summit was attended by the likes of Patriots owner Bob Kraft and billionaire philanthropist Robert Frederick Smith.
