Prince Harry may be welcomed back to the UK if he divorces Meghan Markle.
A breakup could benefit Harry, according to a former acquaintance of the Duchess of Sussex.
“I think it will be a lot better for Harry,” Lizzie Cundy, a former Meghan acquaintance, also said.
“If he does come back here [to the UK] he would be welcomed with open arms.”
The claim that the pair is “taking time apart” sparked speculation about a probable breakup.
Despite one insider informing Page Six that reports of a divorce are “false,” Ms. Cundy has stated that a separation may be “the best thing” for the Duke of Sussex.
Ms. Cundy told the Mirror, “Don’t forget it was our most popular royal once upon a time and the people who would welcome him with open arms, I really think it will be the best thing for Harry.”
“Of course, it’s going to be very sad and it’s sad for the children. But it’s time for Harry to come home.”
Ms. Cundy continued, “I do believe Meghan thought it was all about diamonds, jewels, tiaras, and being the star of the show but it’s not about that being a royal and Princess Kate was always going to be the top dog!”
“I don’t want to see any couples split up when any marriage falls apart, it’s sad, especially when you have children,” Ms. Cundy, who met Meghan in 2013, stated.
“We could all see the writing was on the wall, it’s very different when you’re a celebrity princess than a royal princess and frankly Meghan just wasn’t up for the job.”
She claimed Meghan was unprepared for the responsibilities that come with being a royal, saying, “She didn’t want to put in the hard work in opening hospitals and doing all the roles that royals do.”
“It’s not easy, it’s not glamorous, it’s not like on the red carpet.”
Ms. Cundy spoke of a possible breakup, “I think it will be, in some respects, better for Harry.
“We’ve got to look at it from Harry’s side, he’s in California now, he’s got none of his friends.
“He’s got no family, he’s got a rift with his father and his brother, it must be very lonely at times.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals in 2020, less than two years after their wedding.
After only a few weeks in the UK, the couple relocated to California with their two children, Archie, four, and Lilibet, two.
