It looks like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be staying put in California for now. After rumors swirled that the two would make an appearance at an event honoring Princess Diana at Kensington Palace, a source revealed they will not make their way across the pond after all.

“There are no plans for [Harry and Meghan] to be in the U.K. for the private donor event," a source told Entertainment Tonight.

Prince William will be hosting the bash, which was originally supposed to take place in July, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was scaled back and postponed.

Sir Elton John and other members of the Spencer family are supposed to be there.

The news that Harry, 37, won't be making the trip comes as a shock to some people. “You would have thought it would definitely be something Harry would really want to be at," Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, said. "I can’t imagine anything less important for him because he would want to respect his mother.”

The red-headed prince attended the statue unveiling of his late mother in July, where he seemed happy to be reunited with his brother. However, it seems like they still have a long way to go.

"The relationship between Harry and William is still very much one of distance," Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie told ET. "I don't just mean physical [distance], across the Atlantic, but they are not talking that much, and that is exactly how sources close to William have put it."

He continued, "I think Harry, as he continues to thrive in his new life, has absolutely no regrets about the way in which he did it, or the decisions in which he made, and that does create this very big gap between the two sides."
