  • Markle won’t accompany Prince Harry during his upcoming trip to London, but the news shouldn’t come as a huge surprise
  • According to Rachel Bowie (co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast), “Given the Sussexes ongoing security concerns and the lack of police protection that meets their standards in the U.K., it makes sense that she’d skip this detour and instead join Harry in Nigeria.”
