A source has claimed that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may visit the UK with their children this year

Prince Harry has 'held talks' ahead of his potential return to the UK with Meghan and their two children, Archie and Lilibet.

The prince recently travelled to the UK to visit his father, the King, following his cancer diagnosis but was not accompanied by his family.

Now a source has claimed that Harry is in “government level talks” to return to the UK in May.

The Duke of Sussex is expected to return to Britain this year to mark the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

The source claimed that Harry hopes to bring Meghan and his children with him to attend a service at St Paul’s Cathedral in celebration of the games, but Meghan is hesitant.

A source told OK!: “The move to bring the Invictus Games back to Britain is seen as an opportunity for Harry and he is very keen to take it.

“He is adamant that he wants Meghan and the children to join him, but I think she may be apprehensive and I think she finds being in the UK very uncomfortable.”

It was previously reported that Meghan does not want to return to the UK because she refuses “to dive back into the soap opera,” according to royal author Omid Scobie.

Meghan decided not to attend King Charles’s Coronation on May 6 and remained in California with Archie and Lilibet.

The Duchess of Sussex has not visited the UK since she attended the Queen’s funeral in September 2022.

However, according to the source, Harry is keen to be accompanied by his whole family on his next trip to the UK.

The source said: “Harry is very keen for his entire family to join him… It’s important for him that they show a united front and focus on building bridges with the rest of the Royal Family.”

Scobie also claimed that the duchess “never really felt at home” in the UK and “never wants to step foot in England again.”

The source continued: “I think Meghan knows that she hasn’t been wanted in the past so why would it be any different this time around?

“The couple know they won’t be able to repair things with the Prince and Princess of Wales just yet, but there is hope that the King will be able to bring the families closer together.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there are lots of calls and Zoom meetings planned, to try to iron these things out before the duchess agrees to head over to England.”
