Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could return to the royal fold because "no one else has any interest in having them around”, an expert has claimed.

Meghan and Harry stepped down as senior royals in 2020 before moving the US to live with their children, Archie and Lilibet.

The pair have since sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they made allegations of racism against an unnamed royal.

Both Meghan and Harry have reportedly been invited by the Queen to visit Balmoral this summer, with the palace said to be “preparing for the Sussexes”.

And royal commentator Kinsey Schofield believes the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may well accept the invite.

Ms Schofield told the Daily Star: "No one else really has any interest in having the Sussexes around so yes, they must jump at any opportunity they have to still appear to be in the fold."

She added: “Megxit was one thing but the Oprah interview was an entirely different level of betrayal.

"I still don't believe that Harry and Meghan properly weighed the pros and cons of executing that interview.

It comes just days after Meghan received olive branch messages from several members of the Royal Family as she celebrated her 41st birthday.

Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge shared a brief message to wish the Duchess of Sussex a happy birthday on Thursday.

They were joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in extending an olive branch to Meghan.

Accompanied by a photograph of the former Suits actor sporting a beaming smile, Kate and William's tweet read: "Wishing a happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex!"

Clarence House shared the same sentiment with a picture of Meghan taken during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
