Though some insiders claim that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to have 3-month-old daughter Lilibet's christening at Windsor like they did for 2-year-old son Archie, an expert believes that returning to the U.K. wouldn't be a very good idea.
"Pod Save the Queen" cohost Russell Myers touched on the idea during a recent episode of the royal-focused podcast.
"I don't think there has been any real push to come over, tensions are still very high in that sphere of things," he shared. "Certainly the Oprah Winfrey interview seems to be fresh in the memory for a lot of people, so whether they would be welcomed back with open arms to sit around the Christmas table, I wouldn't bet on that at the moment."
"The royals are certainly at the moment trying to put their attention towards getting back to work over the next week or so, and we are going to see a lot of activity as all the children are back," he added.
The Sussexes haven't given an official word on Lilibet's christening, but Myers believes they're better off having the ceremony in America. After all, they were the ones who chose to leave royal life behind and move out of the country.
"It's about time they got on with their own life, not necessarily worrying about other things going on," he stated. "I think the business of the monarchy has to be treated very differently, and the business of their life and what they want is up to them."
However, if they do want to get together with the royal family — some think they'll be invited to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebration next June — then they'll need to stop making negative comments about the brood and the institution.
"They need to decide what sort of relationship they want, you can't keep trashing people ... I think they really need to decide what they want. Arguably they want to have their cake and eat it," Myers noted. "If they do want to have a relationship with the Queen, and they do want to be on the balcony for trooping and the Platinum Jubilee and to represent the British monarchy in that sense, then surely you have to toe the line a little bit."
