Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could return as part-time royals during Charles’ reign, the author claims

IMPORTANT POINTS

  • Prince Charles could allow Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to serve the monarchy part-time, a royal author suggests
  • Tom Quinn said he believes Prince Charles will “probably” extend the olive branch to his younger son for better looks
  • Royal biographer Omid Scobie previously claimed the Queen vetoed Prince Harry and Markle’s “one foot in, one foot out” approach

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could potentially return to serving the monarchy if Prince Charles agrees to their terms, a royal author has suggested.

Royal author Tom Quinn recently commented on Prince Charles’ reported plan to downsize the monarchy once he takes the throne, as well as the possible roles of Prince Harry and Markle during the Prince of Wales’s reign.

“We’ve already heard Charles say he wants to streamline the royal family, [to] modernize,” Quinn told Us Weekly while discussing his book, Scandals of the Royal Palaces: An Intimate Memoir of Royals Behaving Badly. “I think Meghan and Harry are hoping… Charles will be open to it [them being] part-time royals what they wanted from the start.”

Prince Harry and Markle announced their decision to step down from royal duties in January 2020, almost two years after their wedding. After attending the Commonwealth Day service in March 2020 as their latest public engagement as senior working royals, the couple relocated to Canada before moving to California for good.

Queen Elizabeth II gave them a year to decide whether or not to make their decision to step down from royal duties permanent. Finally, in February last year, Prince Harry and Markle decided to move on with their lives away from the palace.

Royal correspondent Omid Scobie, who co-wrote Sussex biography Finding Freedom, said Prince Harry and Markle had planned an arrangement that would have allowed them to carry out their royal duties while conducting private work. However, the royal correspondent claimed the Queen vetoed her “one foot in, one foot out” approach.

Quinn predicted that “things will change” once Prince Charles takes over for his mother.

“Of course the Queen – who grew up with this feeling that you’re either all in or all out – wouldn’t let that happen [it]’ claimed the author of Kensington Palace: An Intimate Memoir from Queen Mary to Meghan Markle. “But… Charles might well allow that.”

Quinn said he believes the heir apparent will “probably” pass the olive branch to his younger son for better looks. He suggested the Prince of Wales could allow Prince Harry and Markle to perform royal duties for six months and live in California for the rest of the year.

“It would be better to say to Harry, ‘Okay, we’ll do it your way. You can stay here for six months,’” Quinn continued. “It’s not like being a working member of the royal family involves anything politically sensitive or controversial, because really, when they’re full-time royals, they open hospitals. They, you know, give their names to charities. So it’s possible that they could do that for half a year and do their other stuff in America.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently reunited with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles in the UK before heading to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games, the couple’s rep confirmed to Page Six.

Prince Harry and Markle’s stay in the UK was only announced after they landed in London, but the couple had revealed plans to visit the Queen last month when they announced they would not be attending his late grandfather’s memorial service on March 29 Prince Philip can attend.

“The Duke will not be returning to the UK at the end of March but is hoping to visit his grandmother as soon as possible,” a spokesman for the couple told Page Six at the time.
