Meghan Markle may never come back to the UK as she ‘simply doesn’t care’ what the British public think, a royal biographer has claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex , 40, who lives in a $14 million mansion in Montecito, California having stepped back from royal duty in 2020, has ‘no intention’ of returning to London because she views Britain as a ‘lost cause’, according to Tom Bower.
The commentator, who is currently working on a biography of Meghan, told the Sun: ‘Meghan’s ultimate destination is unclear, but she certainly has the backing to make a bid to star as an American politician.
‘In parallel, Britain is a lost cause for the Sussexes. In truth, I suspect Meghan no longer cares whether she is welcome in London. She has no intention of returning.’

He added that while her popularity has fallen in the UK since getting married, her three day visit to New York in September was a ‘remarkable success’ and she clearly enjoys support among ‘Democrats, minorities and the young.’
It’s the latest revelation released from the tell-all book and comes after he said Meghan was branded ‘that minx’ by the Duchess of Cornwall, who thought she was ‘a self-seeking troublemaker’.
The royal biographer suggested the Duke and Duchess’ silence over the Queen’s declaration that Camilla would one day by Queen Consort was ‘Meghan’s way of declaring war.’
Prince Harry is believed to have ‘reached out to his father’ to have ‘friendly video calls’ ahead of the Queen’s Jubilee and is likely to return for celebrations this summer.
The Duke was expected to come to the UK for the for the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service in the spring and the Queen’s Jubilee in the summer.
However, a recent row over the Metropolitan Police providing their security has called their return into doubt.

In an announcement to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last week, Her Majesty spoke of her ‘sincere wish’ that when the time comes, the Duchess of Cornwall will be known as Queen Consort, not Princess Consort, as announced on her marriage to the Prince of Wales.
William was said to be ‘supportive’ of the move and ‘respectful’ of the logic behind his grandmother’s decision.
Meanwhile Prince Harry and Meghan have not offered any public word. When he did break his silence four days later from California, there was no mention of his stepmother, or the proposed change to her status.
Instead, he paid a lavish tribute to Diana, praising her work on Aids and HIV and explaining that he felt an ‘obligation’ to continue his late mother’s efforts to remove the stigma surrounding the virus. Pointedly, he said: ‘I could never fill her shoes.’
It’s a sharp change from Harry’s previous comments on the Duchess of Cornwall.

During an interview to mark his 21st birthday in September 2005, he said he and William ‘loved her to bits’.
He went on: ‘She’s a wonderful woman and she’s made our father very, very happy, which is the most important thing.’
Warming to his theme, he added: ‘Look at the position she’s come into. Don’t always feel sorry for me and William, feel sorry for her. We are grateful for her . . . we’re very happy to have her around.’
Should there have been any lingering doubts about the brothers’ feelings for the duchess, who had married their father five months earlier, Harry emphasised: ‘To be honest, she’s always been very close to me and William. But no, she’s not the wicked stepmother, I’ll say that right now.’
