Meghan Markle's potential UK return has been ruled out by a royal historian in an exclusive interview with GB News.

Prince Harry, 39, could potentially be returning to London next month to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

The Duke of Sussex founded the Games as an international multi-sport event, first held in 2014, for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.

St Paul's Cathedral confirmed to GB News that a service will be held for the Invictus Games in May, however, would not confirm if Harry, 39, or Meghan, 42, would attend.

Marlene Koenig, a royal historian, has voiced doubt over the Duchess of Sussex ever returning to the UK.

In an exclusive interview with GB News, she said: "I don't think Meghan will be visiting the UK anytime soon.

"I think she's done with that. Unless there's something major like a funeral. But Harry and Meghan's life is in the US."

The duchess continues to hold a few patronages, despite stepping down as a working royal four years ago.

The mother-of-two appeared via video link at an engagement in London earlier this year.

Meghan virtually opened a new wing at Mayhew Animal Home in honour of her late friend, Oli Juste.

Speaking about this engagement, Koenig said: “I thought that was pretty interesting.

"I think she only she did it because she was friends with the man.

"She's no longer a patron of Mayhew, she stepped down in April 2022.

"So I think that was just out of friendship. I don't think it will be a regular thing.

"I know she's still with Smart Works. She is still a patron of that and she does continue to do things in the UK."

Meghan and Harry stepped down as working royals in 2020 and settled in the US after a brief stay in Canada.

Their children, Prince Archie, four, and Princess Lilibet, two, are being raised in Montecito, California.

The family of four last visited the UK together in June 2022 for Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee.

Prince Harry has made a few solo appearances for his various court cases against the British press.

The duke also took a whistle stop trip to London after hearing his father, King Charles, had been diagnosed with cancer.
