Brits ‘sympathy’ for Prince Harry ‘wearing thin’ ahead of Sussexes UK return

The British public feels sorry for Prince Harry ahead of his and Meghan Markle’s return to the UK but according to a royal commentator, this sympathy is “wearing thin”.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to return to the UK in September to work with “charities close to their heart” in both Manchester and London.

The royal couple has made few returns to the UK together since moving across the pond, but a spokesperson claimed they are “delighted” about the upcoming trip.

Their visit also falls just a few days after the 25th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, as reported by The Express.

Royal commentator Jonathan Sacredoti claimed that while people do have "sympathy" for the prince, it is "wearing thin"

Speaking to the Express, Mr Sacredoti added: "People do have some sympathy for Prince Harry and his situation, particularly knowing how hard it was to lose his mother as a child and have to grieve in public.

"But the couple has barely stopped criticising the royal family and causing controversy since they left. People’s sympathy is wearing thin."

The Sussexes stepped down as senior royals and were stripped of their royal patronages and Harry's honorary military titles.

The couple relocated across the pond to Montecito in Santa Barbara where they now live with their two children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.

The upcoming trip will mark the first time the Duke and Duchess have returned to the UK since the Platinum Jubilee.

And Mr Sacredoti believes they are "unlikely to get an easy ride" from the public. However, he said the couple "seems very happy" in their new life.

Speaking on the possibility of a permanent return to the UK, he added: "I can't imagine the circumstances in which they would return to the UK permanently but never say never.

"They do seem very happy in America, Meghan especially seems very comfortable there and Harry in the interviews he has given seems very comfortable. It provides them with a base where they can engage in the activities they want to according to their own rules."

While no private visit to members of the Royal Family has been announced, Meghan and Harry have been tipped to stop to see the Queen if her schedule will allow it.

Mr Sacredoti said the couple may have chosen to take the trip with the intention of seeing the Monarch.

"They might have chosen to come now as it will give them the opportunity to meet with the Queen in London potentially if that is something she wants to do", he added.

The trip comes at a busy time for Her Majesty as she prepares for a week of constitutional duties.

Harry and Meghan will be in the UK on September 5, the same day Britain's next Prime Minister will be chosen by Conservative Party Members.
