Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Headed To England, Will They Meet Up With Prince William And The Queen?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are returning to the U.K. for a series of charity visits next month — raising the prospect that they could meet with their royal relatives.

Relations have been strained between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and members of the royal family in recent years, including an ongoing estrangement between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Kate and William will have likely moved into Adelaide Cottage in Windsor by the time Meghan and Harry arrive during the first week of September, which means they will only be a short distance from Harry and Meghan’s British home, Frogmore Cottage, which is on the Queen’s Windsor Castle estate.

While that could provide a chance for the foursome to get together, there are “no current plans” for the couples to meet up, a source tells PEOPLE.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be in close proximity to Queen Elizabeth as well. Harry’s 96-year-old grandmother, who is usually at Balmoral Castle in Scotland during this time of year, is likely to travel back in order to meet with the departing Prime Minister Boris Johnson (and his incoming successor). In her role as head of state, it’s also likely she will be called upon to confirm the appointments of Cabinet ministers who will serve in the new government.

A royal source tells PEOPLE, “There are a lot of moving parts in the diary for the Queen that week.”

Palace sources have not said whether those meetings will take place at Buckingham Palace in London or at Windsor Castle.

The couple could also arrive early and travel to Scotland to see Her Majesty ahead of their planned outings. Meghan and Harry are set to be in Manchester for the One Young World Summit on Sept. 5, Germany for the Invictus Games “One Year to Go” on Sept. 6, and back to the U.K. for the Well Child Awards on Sept 8.
