PRINCE Philip’s tragic death could see Meghan Markle and Prince Harry return to the UK for the first time in a year.
The Duke of Edinburgh passed away peacefully this morning aged 99 after 73 years of marriage to the Queen.
The couple left the UK in March 2020, quitting ‘senior’ royal duties to pursue a ‘private life’ and haven’t been back to this country since.
“Harry will absolutely do his utmost to get back to the UK and be with his family,” a source close to the family told DailyMail.com.
“He will want nothing more than to be there for his family, and particularly his grandmother, during this awful time,” they added.
“Meghan is obviously pregnant so she will need to take advice from her doctors about whether it is safe for her to travel, but I think Harry will definitely go,” the source went on to day.
It comes as new data showed police have been called to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s California mansion nine times over the past nine months.
Cops responded to a number of calls listed as phone requests, alarm activations and property crimes since they moved to Montecito, California, with one-year-old Archie in July last year.
The data, obtained under Freedom of Information laws, was released after the couple shared their security fears in their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office were called four times in July last year after Harry and Meghan moved to Montecito from Los Angeles.
They had had been temporarily living in LA since leaving Canada at the start of the pandemic.
One call is listed as a phone request while the others are labelled “alarm activations” and all occurred in the early hours of the morning.
An August request is listed as “Misc Priority Incdnt”, while there was a further alarm in November.
At 4.13pm on Christmas Eve, sheriff’s deputies were called to the property after a man was alleged to have trespassed.
Officers returned to the mansion on Boxing Day at 2.54pm for a call listed under “Property Crimes”.
