Meghan Markle and Prince Harry 'MUST visit Queen with Lilibet' as US travel ban is no longer an ‘excuse’

HARRY and Meghan "must visit the Queen with baby Lilibet" because the US travel ban is no longer an "excuse", an expert has said.

The US is set to ease the travel ban from the United Kingdom – meaning the Sussexes can make a joint return to England from California.

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, have not ventured to the UK together since they ditched the country for a life across the pond last year.

But now, following the birth of their daughter Lilibet in June, royal author Adam Helliker said the brood returning to Harry's home country is "imperative for family unity".

He said any trip would be "a private family visit" and "very low key" with Harry and Meghan seeing only key royals, including Prince Charles, Camilla and Prince William.

Mr Helliker told the Sun: "I think it's imperative for family unity that the whole family comes over because, to put it bluntly, the queen is getting older and these won't arrive too often again.

"I think Harry will feel particularly guilty if she doesn't see the great-grandchildren she's not seen much of – or the great-granddaughter she's not seen at all.

"I think if they're going to try to patch things up – and we all hope they will work to increase what remains of the unity between them and the family – then I think it's paramount that they start planning a trip for maybe early December.

"I doubt obviously they want to be restricted by spending any Christmases at Sandringham, but maybe a mid-December pre-Christmas trip to say hello to the family.

"For Harry, those family ties – until he was encouraged by her to break them – were really important."

He said both sides will be "striving for reconciliation" following the fallout from their bombshell Oprah interview.

The Sussexes alleged there were conversations with Harry and a "family" member about their unborn son Archie and what colour his skin would be – and "what that would mean or look like".

There has been speculation about whether Harry and Meghan will return to the UK to christen baby Lilibet.

But Mr Helliker thinks this is unlikely.

He added: "They seem to have very fixed views about the privacy of family occasions.

"I think having the christening in the UK will be putting too much pressure on them.

"And I think Meghan will be putting her foot down and say no we don't want an international circus."

The White House is set to announce a new US travel policy on Monday morning – 18 months after Former President Donald Trump imposed the halt.

Fully vaccinated passengers will reportedly be able to travel once the ban is lifted, three people with information told the Financial Times.

Currently, only American citizens and their immediate families, alongside those who have green cards and national interest exemptions, have been allowed to travel between the countries.
