Meghan Markle reportedly fears that Prince Harry will be “lured back into the fold” after the pair were said to have received an invitation by the Queen to visit Balmoral.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex last visited the Queen during the Platinum Jubilee earlier this year, where the pair played a small role in the celebrations.

A source at the castle said staff were preparing for their visit to Balmoral later this year, alongside their children Archie and Lilibet.

But the invite is said to be “bittersweet” for Meghan, who fears that Harry could want to return to the UK at some point.

A report in Closer, citing an insider said: “It’s a bittersweet invite for Meghan, because on one hand it fuels her and Harry’s confidence that they are very much still part of the family, but after so much time away, she fears Harry will be lured back into the fold and want to return to the UK.

“Meghan doesn’t doubt that Harry is committed to spending the rest of his life in America, but does have certain trepidation over how these types of visits can pull at his heartstrings.

“She’s been aware of Harry’s homesickness for some time, and she can see just how excited he is to show more of his heritage to their children, without the attention and security fears that surrounded them in London.”

It comes after royal author Tom Bower claimed that Harry was “pondering” whether to take revenge on the Royal Family after being “slighted” during the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.

The Queen opted to limit the Platinum Jubilee Trooping the Colour balcony appearance to working members of her family, meaning Harry and Meghan were left off the list.

While Harry was also questioned the seating arrangement at the during the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, Mr Bower added in an interview with GB News.
