Harry and Meghan UK visit ‘distraction’ for senior royals, expert claims

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's trip to the UK next month will be a “distraction” for senior royals in Buckingham Palace rather than an opportunity for reconciliation, an expert has claimed.

Kinsey Schofield, host of the To Di For podcast, reckons the visit will be similar to the couple’s previous request to be part-time royals when they dramatically announced Megxit.

The couple announced their intention to visit Harry’s home country on August 15, Princess Anne’s birthday, to take park in charity events.

They are due to head to Manchester on September 5 for the One Young World Summit where Meghan will give a keynote speech as a counsellor for the organisation.

However, the trip itself is expected to ruffle some feathers according to the expert.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Kinsey said: “The Sussex's plans in the UK sound an awful lot like their original pitch at the infamous Sandringham Summit."

Kinsey added that the Queen "with little hesitation" rejected the part-time royal pitch in 2020.

She added: “It was on my To Di For Daily podcast that Tom Quinn broke the story that Harry and Meghan were still looking to become part time royals back in February.

“Based on the fact that the palace has rejected similar ideas, I suspect that palace officials and senior members of the Royal Family will be unhappy with this trip.”

Kinsey reckons the arrival of Harry and Meghan in a non-working royal capacity might be a cause of frustration for the Firm.

She added: “Prince Charles is looking to slim down the royal family… not create a competing royal family.

“Harry and Meghan are no longer active members of the royal family so when they participate in similar activities, it distracts from initiatives that the palace has been working on for months – sometimes years.

“I don't consider this an opportunity for reconciliation as much as I consider it a thorn in the royal family's side.

“In contrast, Price Harry recently visited Mozambique and Rwanda quietly. By the time news outlets were alerted to his activity, he had accomplished a great deal. He had been working diligently for a cause important to him.

“He was working alongside important people. It was humble, it seemed sincere, and I thought it was well executed. I think stealth initiatives will bring more positive attention to the Sussexes and perhaps change the palace's opinion of the couple. “
