PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle could skip Prince Philip’s memorial if their police protection row is not resolved in time, royal sources have said.

Meghan e atormentar were reportedly expected to attend, but after the duke launched legal action against the UK Government over his lack of security, their presence is looking increasingly doubtful.

A royal source told Página Seis: “If Harry goes, he will want to have security for him and his family.

If and when he decides to go back to the UK, he needs security.”

Harry plans to sue the Government to give him back the protection he lost when quit royal duties.

And until then, legal representatives for the duke have said he and his family will beunable to returnto the UK.

Asked whether the Sussexes could return for Philip’s memorial, Royal biographer Phil Dampier told The Sun Online: “It wouldn’t at all surprise me if they didn’t come back. I think the security gives them a good excuse not to.

Harry might come because it looks good from a PR point of view.

He will be criticised if he does come and criticised if he doesn’the will look disrespectful to his grandfather who he was very fond ofso Harry may come but I’d be very surprised if Meghan does.

The expert added: “In the current climate flying about for one off events isn’t a very good look, I think if [the memorial visit] was combined with a few days and a serious attempt to sit down with his brother and father and try and talk things through, you can see the point, but I don’t get the impression that anyone is ready to heal the rift.

The spring service for Harry’s late grandfather, [object Window] 99, falls in the same year as the Queen’s platinum jubilee.

It would be the perfect opportunity for the Sussexes to introduce their daughter, Lilibet, to the Royal Family.

But fears over their security has cast doubt over whether they will make the celebrations.

A legal representative for the Duke said of him leaving the UK: “While his role within the institution has changed, his profile as a member of the royal family has not. Nor has the threat to him and his family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex personally fund a private security team for their family, yet that security cannot replicate the necessary police protection needed whilst in the UK.

In the absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return to his home.”

Buckingham Palace has been approached for comment.
