Meghan Markle Would Not Welcomed Back to the Royal Family If Megxit Fails

Though their official last day as senior working members of the British royal family doesn’t happen for another two weeks, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have finished their final royal engagements. After a dizzying schedule that involved reuniting with the royal family and some tearful goodbyes, the Sussexes are back on Vancouver Island in Canada where they are hunkering down out of the spotlight with their son Archie Harrison amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Though the duke and the duchess have given us hints about their forthcoming plans, nothing appears to be set in stone at this time. So far, we know that the pair are working on a rebrand. As of April 1, they will no longer be able to use the word royal in their work. However, everything else seems to be under lock and key.

Though the royal family has outlined a business plan if Megxit fails, it’s unlikely that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex will ever be welcomed back into the royal fold.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be living under a microscope

Though they will no longer be adhering to the pace of royal life, and they have been able to isolate themselves somewhat on Vancouver Island, all eyes are still on the Sussexes. They are taking their time to release their next steps since their post-royal plan will be put under a microscope as soon as it is made public.

Additionally, the royal family will be cataloging every single move the Sussexes make. This could potentially cause the relationship between the couple and the duke’s family to sour even further.

“Putting that 12-month review in place goes to show you that the Queen will be watching them like a hawk,” Julie Montagu Viscountess Hinchingbrooke said in the Channel 5 documentary, Royals: A family in crisis. “She will want to see everything that they are doing, what they are making money from and how it is affecting the Royal Family. So there must be some concern from the Queen about what their intentions are.”

Prince Harry would be welcomed back to the royal family instantly

Most of the fury surrounding Megxit has been aimed at the Duchess of Sussex. She has been blamed for seducing the prince away from his family, and for turning the royal family on its head.

This is unfortunate, considering the fact that it was the sexism and racism that Meghan endured, that forced Prince Harry to decide to prioritize the well-being of his wife and son over royal life. “The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly,” he said during a speech for his charity, Sentebale.“It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always got it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option. You’ve looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us.”

Still, should the prince decide to step back into the royal fold, he would be welcomed back with open arms. “The love this country has for him has never stopped,” royal photographer Arthur Edwards explained to The Sun. “As far as the nation is concerned he is still their number one member of the Royal Family.”

Earlier this week The Duchess of Sussex, in her role as Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), met with the bright minds from across the Commonwealth to hear about their commitment to tackling the global challenges we all face. The Duchess spoke with Scholars studying and researching important areas surrounding; cleaning up plastic pollution in our oceans, helping to build more sustainable cities, improving health outcomes for citizens, and supporting decent work and economic growth. Paving the way as the next generation of leaders, these inspirational scholars, are spread far across the Commonwealth from Malawi to Malaysia, Ghana to Sri Lanka – all of whom will use the skills and knowledge they gain while studying in the UK to make a difference when they return to their home countries. The Duchess, who also attended university with support of a scholarship, is a strong advocate of accessible education for all. As the Royal Patron of The Association of Commonwealth Universities (@The_ACU_Official) since January 2019, The Duchess has met and engaged with students, academics, and staff from ACU member universities across the Commonwealth to learn more about the vital work they do to address global challenges. As President and Vice President of The @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess thank all those who are working to give access to education for all.

Meghan Markle will never be welcomed back to royal life

Though the Brits insist they are not racist, it’s clear that the duchess would never be welcomed back to royal life should she ever want to return.

“It was clear in her body language, very real, very emotional, very vulnerable,” ABC’s royal expert Omid Scobie said of the duchess appearance at Commonwealth Day. “And so she went from that straight to the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey. To not see that warm arm of a family member or some kind of welcome or effort being made really gave us our biggest insight into the dynamics of the Sussexes and the royal family and how that’s been for the final couple years. I’ve got to be honest, I was quite surprised that there wasn’t at least a show of warmth in front of the world.”
