Meghan Markle faces a “dilemma” over whether to remain in the UK ahead of the Queen’s funeral next week (September 19), a commentator has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had been visiting the UK for charity events at the time of the Queen’s passing, with Harry quickly heading to Balmoral when the news of the monarch’s illness was announced.
Since the Queen died on Thursday (September 8), the Sussexes have remained with the other royals, and even attended a walkabout with Prince William and Kate Middleton where they greeted well-wishers.

Now, with the couple’s children Archie (3) and Lilibet (1) still in LA, royal commentator Neil Sean has suggested that the former actress will have a difficult decision to make ahead of the Queen’s funeral a week today.
“As we now know we’re in a period of mourning, but it’s very difficult for Meghan Markle herself because clearly the family, whichever way you look at it, are not as welcoming to her as perhaps everybody else claims that they are,” he claimed, speaking on his YouTube channel.
“It’s obvious why not; they’re hurt, upset and finding it very hard to move forwards, particularly in these difficult times.
“So the dilemma that Meghan has now is, will she stay here in the United Kingdom, or will she have to rush back to look after her children back over in California? Who of course, originally, she only planned to leave for five days’ maximum.”
In the meantime, the former actress has reportedly already cancelled some of her other commitments, including an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show, and postponing the release of her next podcast episode, which was due tomorrow (September 13).
But, Neil suggested that even if Meghan returned home to look after her children, she could face criticism for missing the funeral.
He continued: “She is in something of a dilemma because of course we have ten to 12 days of official mourning, and then would Meghan return back here for the funeral?

“It really is a no-win situation for her because moving forwards, what can she do? It’s kind of the wrong thing either way.”
This comes as mourners who are hoping to pay their respects to the Queen by passing her coffin in London’s Westminster Hall have been warned to expect “hours” of queues.
