The British have been waiting for just this: the return of the prince exiled to the United States. Prince Harry may soon want to spend more time in the UK, and according to The Express, a host of friends are ready to welcome him back.
Back in the fold. Prince Harry is said to be on the verge of investing in a house or flat in the UK so that he can spend more time there with his family. Exiled to California since 2020 when he wanted to live in his wife Meghan Markle’s country, far from the Firm, he now seems to want to get closer to his origins. According to The Express, the Duke of Sussex could be reconnecting with old acquaintances there, having distanced himself from his circle of friends for the past three years.
But who are these loyal allies who could welcome him with open arms? The daily newspaper mentions several names that are well known to afficionados of Prince Harry’s adventures: Tom Inskip, the friend from Eton; Guy Pelly, the night owl who has always been close to the Prince, their mothers having also been friends; and Charlie Van Straubenzee, one of Harry’s oldest friends, whom he met at Ludgrove School in primary school. Finally, Mark Dyer, who worked for the Prince for many years, has remained a close friend, almost a second father, on whom the Duke of Sussex knows he can count.
The real reason behind Prince Harry’s desire to move
According to the Mirror, royal expert Duncan Larcombe advised Prince Harry to return to England for the sake of his children: “They will grow up without knowing their cousins, aunts or uncles, or any of their family”, explained the expert. Since they have been living in Montecito, California, Archie and Lilibet only have their grandmother Doria Ragland, as Meghan no longer has any contact with the rest of her family. Duncan Larcombe explained: “They’re growing up fast (Archie and Lilibet) and their dad isn’t getting any younger. I think Prince Harry wants to move out before it’s too late. I think Harry wants his children to have a real relationship with their cousins and, in time, with their grandfather.
