Buckingham Palace are fearing a “Sussex bomb” as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry prepare to travel to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Meghan and Harry, along with their two children, Archie and Lilibet, are set to arrive in the UK in the coming days ahead of the celebrations to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years of reign.

The pair left for the US in 2020, shortly after they stepped down as senior royals.

Since then, they have spoken out about the Royal Family during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they made racism allegations against an unnamed royal.

Ahead of their visit, royal expert Camilla Tominey says that courtiers have been doing “everything in their power” to diffuse the situation.

Ms Tominey said in the Telegraph: "Amid fears that another ‘Sussex bomb’ is about to be dropped on the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, after their controversial Oprah Winfrey interview and news of the Duke’s forthcoming, warts-and-all autobiography, courtiers have been doing everything in their power to diffuse any potential flashpoints.”

Her comments come after Paul Burrell said he believes Harry isn’t happy with his new life in the US and that one day he will need his brother Prince William again.

The former royal butler said: “Harry’s going to need his brother one day. I think he will come back to this country with his tail between his legs.

“His brother will put his arms around him and say, ‘Welcome home, Harry.’

“I don’t think he’s totally happy. I think he’s missing his brother, I really do.

“I think he’s missing his family, I think he’s missing his friends and the lifestyle he had here in England.

“I think he’s given everything up for Meghan and I don’t know how long he’s going to be able to live that life,” he told OK!.
