Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan 'unlikely' to spend Christmas in the UK

The royal couple currently live in California after stepping back as senior members of the royal family earlier this year, and it has now been reported they and their 17-month-old son Archie won’t be travelling back to the UK to spend time with Harry’s family over the festive period next month.

A spokesman for the couple told The Sunday Times newspaper: “It is unlikely the Duke and Duchess will be traveling before the end of the year. There are no plans to travel at the moment, but any travel plans will be kept under review.”

The decision to stay in the US for Chris...mas means Queen Elizabeth II, 94, and her husband Prince Philip, 99, won’t be able to see their grandson Harry, or their great-grandson Archie, on the annual holiday.

Harry and Meghan’s travel plans have likely been interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, and although the health crisis has meant they’ve been unable to leave their Montecito home, Duchess Meghan recently said she’s been enjoying the extra time she’s had with her son.

Asked how they have coped during the pandemic, the 39-year-old star said: "Everyone is grappling with a different version of the same thing. We're just trying to embrace all of the quality time we get with our son right now and not miss a single moment of his growth and development.”
