Prince Harry may bring his wife Meghan Markle and his daughter Lilibet to the Diana Legacy Awards later this year, a royal expert has claimed.

Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, welcomed their baby daughter Lilibet into the world earlier this year but are yet to return to the UK to introduce the tot to the Royal Family.

But the Duke of Sussex, who followed in the footsteps of his mother with his recent visit to New York, could bring Meghan and Lilibet along when he returns to the UK later this year.

MailOnline's Richard Eden said of the upcoming event: "Prince Harry could even bring Meghan and their baby daughter, Lilibet, who has still not met any other members of the Royal Family."

The Diana Award's 2021 Legacy Award is set to have a prize giving ceremony in December, where Harry will also be reunited with his brother Prince William, whom he was last seen with at the unveiling of a statue of their late mother Princess Diana.

The ceremony is set to be held at Althorp, which is the stately home where Diana grew up, and her brother Earl Spencer will act as host.

Tessy Ojo, chief executive of the Diana Award, revealed both the brothers are still involved in the Diana Award scheme.

She said: "We’re delighted that we still have the support of the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex."


Tessy added: "Right now we’re the only charity that has both of them involved. It really is a privilege."

Prince Harry now lives in the United States with his wife Meghan, who gave a rare update on daughter Lilibet recently.

Following the move, Harry has jetted back for Prince Philip's funeral and for the unveiling of the statue of his late mother, which he and brother William had commissioned.

Tessy added how the brothers are both committed to honouring their late mother with the scheme.

She said: "To us, it doesn’t matter where in the world they are.

"They are jointly committed to the awards. The Dukes will be heavily involved as it will be a whole week of events, so they are eager to take part."

Harry and William have agreed a new five year plan for the charity. Tess added: "It was a strategy that was put forward by the Duke of Cambridge, and we had the Duke of Sussex support that."

It comes following reports that Harry and Meghan could be returning to the UK for Christmas this year.

Royal author Katie Nicholl said she believes a family trip back to the UK is "being looked at" by the pair, and she believes there could be a "softening" to help repair bonds with the UK-based Royals.

Speaking to Closer, Katie said: "When Harry and Meghan left, they made it clear they didn’t want to give up their home in Britain. They still have Frogmore Cottage and their plan was to come back to the UK.

"Christmas is being looked at as an opportunity. There may be a softening, which could pave the way for a healing of the family rift."
