AlthoughMeghan MarkleandPrince Harryhave made California their new home, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex still maintain a presence in the United Kingdom. The couple and their two children, son Archie, 2, and daughter Lilbet, 8 months,have yet to return to the U.K. to visit the royal family, but if and when that time comes, it looks like they’ll have a place to stay — which also ensures Harry is still an important member of the royal family.

In light of this, we have to wonderwhen Harry will be able to bring his family back to his home country.

Harry has returned to the U.K. on solo trips before, but his desire to reunite his family on both sides of the Atlantic has become more apparent in recent months.
