It has recently been suggested that the Duke of Sussex “misses the UK” – something he opened up about in his Netflix docu-series.
In the sixth episode, he revealed what he misses about living in the UK, including his “weird family gatherings” and his “friends”.
Asked what he misses about being a working royal, he said: “I miss the weird family gatherings, when we are all sort of brought together under one roof for certain times of the year.”
He then added that “being part of the institution meant I was in the UK. So I miss the UK, I miss my friends”, and he admitted he has “lost a few friends as well”.

While in the US, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet have been surrounded by Meghan’s family – including her mother Doria Ragland and Meghan’s niece Ashleigh Hale.
Meghan was open about cutting off some of her family members, including her estranged father Thomas Markle and half sister Samantha Markle.
Harry has also suffered damaged family relations, particularly with his brother Prince William after surprising allegations made against him in his memoir Spare.
As well as other royal family members based in the UK, Harry seems to be missing out on quality family time, but Meghan has no desire to return to England.
Sources told Woman that “Harry loves his wife and children, he is happy but he really misses the UK.”
Royal biographer Emily Andrews told the publication that in the UK, Meghan was “unable to control her image” but in America she is “enjoying being a celebrity”.
Meghan recently signed to WME and is said to be making a comeback to Hollywood and is “more than happy to be photographed” as she climbs her way back up the ladder.
Speaking to The Sunday Times, a close friend of the couple explained: “Meghan seems to have decided that coming back more is not what she wants to do, but Harry would like to.
Having a base in his home country, despite everything that has happened, is appealing. There is work to be done here in terms of the charities, and there would be opportunities in the future where he’ll want to be here a bit more.”
