Despite his recent move to the quiet Santa Barbara neighborhood of California, Prince Harry misses his native country and is dying to return to England.

During the meeting, Harry declared that he had plans to return to the home of the royal family and would have already done so had it not been for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although many believed that his separation from the British Crown and his recent move to a mansion in one of California's most exclusive neighborhoods would alienate Prince Harry from the United Kingdom, a series of activities scheduled for next year could bring the prince back to his native country.

On his podcast, The HeirPod, the journalist and controversial book author Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, Omid Scobie, stated that Harry and Meghan could spend an "extended period of time in the UK next year".

"In March, we have the Invictus Games, which has been rescheduled, in the Hague. In June, we have Trooping the Colour, which I imagine Prince Harry and Meghan would like to still be at, and July 1, we have the unveiling of the [Princess Diana] statue," commented the royal specialist. We will have to wait and see when Prince Harry, Meghan, and Archie can make a visit back to the UK!
