Prince Harry will return to the U.K. in September to attend an event celebrating Princess Diana’s life.
Meghan Markle may join Harry to attend the event expected to take place at Kensington Palace, according to The Sun.
The news comes after Harry returned to the U.K. to attend the unveiling of a memorial statue in honor of his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
The unveiling event took place at the Sunken Garden, Kensington Palace, on Thursday, July 1.
A source told The Sun that the Diana statue unveiling event was low-key because of coronavirus restrictions and that “there were no peace talks” between Harry and William during Harry’s brief stay in the U.K.
“There were no peace talks and distance remains there,” the source said. “It is a step forward, but this was not the time or the place.”
The source added that a bigger event celebrating Diana’s life takes place in September when coronavirus restrictions should lift.
“September is a date penciled in for a more extensive celebration of the statue, and Harry will want to return,” the source said.
