The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are yet to confirm whether they will attend the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations later this year

The Duchess of Sussex “disliked England and will never want to come back”, a former editor of Vanity Fair has claimed.

Meghan and her husband Prince Harry stepped down from senior royal duties more than two years ago, before leaving the UK to live in the US.

And while Tina Brown believes that Harry may return to the Royal Family when the Queen passes away, she thinks that Meghan will stay away.

Ms Brown said: “I think that Harry is going to want to come back when the Queen dies to serve his country.

“And I think they will find a way to reel him in. And it’s possible that Meghan – maybe they will have a commuter arrangement.

“I don’t know. I don’t see Meghan ever wanting to go back. She disliked England."

She continued: “I actually think there is a Harry-shaped hole in the Royal Family now.

“And Harry was beloved by the British people. And people adored Meghan when she came into the mix.

“So it was actually very, very sad for everybody that it went so wrong because they actually need Harry and Meghan now."

The couple are yet to confirm whether they will attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations later this year, with Ms Brown urging them to come.

She told the New York Times podcast Sway: “You should see, the Queen is failing, and she’s very frail.

"They kind of need Harry and Meghan to bring that star power and to be on the balcony at the Jubilee.

“We have to have a Royal Family up there. We can’t have Prince Andrew up there."

Her comments come after Meghan’s dad Thomas Markle exclusively confirmed to GB News that he would be travelling to the UK for the celebrations, adding that he didn’t know whether Harry and Meghan would be in attendance.

When asked on Dan Wootton Tonight whether he thought the couple would attend the jubilee, Mr Markle said: “I’m getting the feeling that if they know I’m coming, they won’t be coming.

“But if they do come, I’d love to reach out and speak with them and try to figure out what went wrong and how we can repair it.

“I don’t see that happening, but I’d certainly like to try.”
