Famous Editor Claims Meghan Markle Will Never Return To The UK. Here's Why

The circumstances surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's defection from the royal family were murky, with rumors swirling about how the duke allegedly disrespected the queen and his own father, Prince Charles, by absconding to the States. During their groundbreaking Oprah Winfrey interview, Harry and Meghan revealed how Megxit really went down, clarifying how hard they'd tried to make things work prior to leaving, per The New York Times. Although it was clearly a difficult decision for the couple, certain commentators asserted it was what the former "Suits" star wanted all along. 

Soon after the Sussexes made their intentions clear, royal photographer Arthur Edwards argued that they always planned to move away. As The Irish Sun reported at the time, during an interview on TalkRadio, Edwards claimed, "All that house refurbishment at Frogmore and the money that they spent on that, she had no intention of staying here." According to Edwards, the American influence was keenly felt in an increasingly unfriendly Harry too, who barely smiled in photos towards the end, possibly because he was aware that staying in Britain was "not in her plans."  

Moreover, reports suggested the Duchess of Sussex was delighted to be back home. More recently, a royal author offered that the reported reason Meghan And Harry married so quickly was over fears for their ongoing safety while living in England (via the Independent). Now, an expert is wading in about whether Meghan really was as unhappy as everybody thought.

Meghan Markle wasn't a fan of living in Britain

Although the circumstances could've been better, the Sussexes' departure from the royal family, and indeed England, may have come at just the right time for Meghan Markle. According to former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown, the "Suits" star was never comfortable living across the pond. In fact, per the Daily Mail, Markle "disliked England" and won't return even if, as she suspects, Prince Harry rejoins the royal family and splits his time between the U.S. and U.K. following the queen's death.

Brown, who described the celebrity couple as being "addicted to drama," revealed that their sensational departure from the monarchy caused major issues. Hopefully, if and when Harry returns, "they will find a way to reel him in." Although Brown acknowledged that Meghan may commute alongside Harry, it's unlikely. The former editor revealed the British public could use the couple now, arguing, "The queen is failing, and she's very frail." 

Brown continued, "They kind of need Harry and Meghan to bring that star power and to be on the balcony at the Jubilee." It's worth noting that, at the time of their exit, royal expert Omid Scobie wrote in Harper's Bazaar that the Sussexes were devastated over being forced to leave. Unfortunately, they felt that, due to the lack of support from the family, as well as the increasingly negative attention from the British tabloids, there was no other choice.
