There’s something about health emergencies that puts all other family drama into perspective. After months of back and forth speculation as to whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will make their triumphant return to the UK for the christening of their daughter, Lilibet, Harry could eventually return alone much sooner – leaving the family in California when he returns. that does.
Prior to the Queen’s recent overnight visit to King Edward VII Hospital on October 20, the christening seemed like the most likely opportunity for Harry, Meghan and their children to reunite with the rest of the Royal Family (if at all). to happen). First, sources said the baptism would… definitely take place in Windsor, and the queen would certainly be there. Then it started to look like that was a no-go, and the baptism was supposed to take place in Santa Barbara (perhaps because Prince William vetoed the Windsor idea), making it unclear when the family might make the jump across the pond.
But a source who spoke to OKAY! Magazine indicated that the baptism talk has been on the back burner since the Queen’s hospital stay last month. After doctors told the Queen to take it easy and forgo royal duties for the foreseeable future – a phone call that prompted her to cancel and opt-in to her performance at COP26 in Scotland the royal “Fab Four” in her place – Harry reportedly went into panic mode and started planning a visit, drama or no drama. “[Harry] has been in contact with her non-stop by sending messages and care packages,” they explained. “But he feels that is not enough and wants to be by her side.”
Markle, who has had her ups and downs with the royal family and especially British tabloids, has reportedly made it clear that she has no intention of going back in the near future – something the source says Harry “respects, [even] if that means you’re not with her and the kids” during the trip.
“He’s afraid there won’t be an opportunity to celebrate the holidays with the Queen. Despite all his grievances with the royal family, he adores his grandmother and misses her terribly,” the source said.
While it would probably be sad for Harry not to spend Lilibet’s first Christmas with her, it makes sense that he would want to be with the Queen during her health problem.
