Senior royals are making plans to provide Harry and Meghan with a haven in the UK after the couple claimed paparazzi “stalked” them within hours of their reunion in Canada, it has been reported.
Sources close to the Royal Family say Prince Charles and Prince William have been “reaching out” to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to say they could return to the UK full-time, if they wanted to, without having to resume their official royal duties.
Courtiers fear the pressure on Vancouver Island, where the Sussexes are staying, will have a major impact on the couple, The Sunday Times reports.
“The palace are very worried about the Sussexes, because they are vulnerable outside the embrace of the family,” a source said.
“They are making contingency plans in case the Sussexes suddenly turn round and say: ‘Can we come back under your wing?’”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have issued a warning over harassment by photographers, who, they say, are permanently camped outside their Vancouver Island home.
They said there have been attempts to photograph the Sussexes inside their home using long range lenses.
Meghan was photographed while out walking with the couple’s infant son, Archie, and her two dogs.
Lawyers for the couple claim the photos were taken without her consent and that the photographer was hiding in the bushes and spying on her.
This comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step back from their senior roles within the Royal Family.
