Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will miss Prince Philip’s memorial due to security concerns

The memorial service for the late Prince Philip is coming, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cannot return to the UK to attend, Page Six reports, despite rumors of them appearing with their children. A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told the publication: “The Duke will not return to the UK at the end of March but hopes to visit his grandmother as soon as possible.”

The memorial is scheduled for March 29 and will be held at Westminster Abbey. It was thought that the Sussexes would attend and take their youngest child, 9-month-old Lilibet, to meet the rest of their family for the first time. But there is an ongoing battle over whether they can be safely present. His representatives have claimed they are “unable to return to his home” due to fears for their personal well-being.

In recent months, Prince Harry has been battling with the Home Office over security issues in England for himself and Markle. Harry argues that the security they are offered is not sufficient for their protection, and claims in a lawsuit that he is prevented from paying for police protection. He has twice petitioned to pay out of pocket “so as not to impose on British taxpayers” and both times he has been rejected.

Last summer, when he left the WellChild children’s charity event, Prince Harry was chased by photographers across London. Although he and Markle have security that they pay for in the United States, they believe the team would not have enough jurisdiction to keep them safe abroad. The couple has not been together since March 2020, when they left royal life and moved to California.

The memorial will be attended by the Queen, her son Prince Charles and Prince William.
