Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet Diana, 2, are "unlikely" to travel to Britain with Prince Harry this May. The Duke of Sussex will be in the U.K. for a 10th anniversary, Invictus Games, celebration at St Paul's Cathedral. It is currently unknown if Meghan Markle will travel to the United Kingdom with her spouse, as she has not returned to Britain since Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in September 2022.

This follows reports suggesting that Prince Harry could potentially reunite with Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales when he visits. The formerly close millennial royals are said to have "no plans for a reconciliation" but a "very brief" reunion could happen to allow the Duke of Sussex to express his sympathies to the future queen in person.

Given Kate's cancer diagnosis, Harry will certainly make efforts to see his brother and Kate when he returns to the U.K. in May — if it happens at all, it's to be a very brief, carefully choreographed meeting and organized to last a short time so that the brothers can avoid any difficult conversations," royal author Tom Quinn told an outlet.

He continued: "At the same time, Harry knows how it will look if he comes back to the U.K. and doesn't see his brother and Kate. It's going to be a very awkward time."

This meeting would come after Harry's "blink, and you'll miss it" meeting with King Charles III on February 6, following the monarch's cancer disclosure.

It has been reported that Prince Harry could try and meet with Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales, during his May 2024 trip to Britain.

"Every time they turn around, Harry and Meghan have planted some new allegation against them or petty story," a palace insider spilled when discussing the future king and queen. "It is hard for them not to be able to defend themselves, but silence is always the best response."

A "reunion" of the "Fab Four" is probably nothing but a fantasy in royal analyst Pandora Forsyth's opinion. "After everything that Harry and Meghan have released about the royal family, whilst William and Catherine have been representing the royal family and actually haven't been able to say a lot about it by choice, but also because of the fact they still work for the royal family," she added.

By convention, British royals under no circumstances talk about personal matters or respond to incendiary claims or allegations against them personally. This is meant to suggest that they are "above" squabbles or drama, but this may be a bit much for William and Kate to keep abiding by.

Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet Diana have not been in Britain since the late Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022. It is believed that this is the only opportunity Elizabeth II had to meet her infant great-granddaughter, and also the then-Prince Charles' first and thus far, only, meeting with Lilibet.
