Meghan Markle and Prince Harry risk provoking the Queen's wrath during an upcoming visit to the UK, according to one royal commentator.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will conduct a number of engagements on this side of the Atlantic early next month.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe says the rare visit will be "incredibly high-profile" and could give the appearance that the couple are "back doing royal jobs".

The pair are "pushing their luck" and could provoke backlash from the royal family, he claims – especially from the Queen herself.

Duncan wrote for The Daily Beast: “To the casual observer, especially overseas and even more especially in America, this will look like Harry and Meghan are back doing royal jobs, especially given that one of the gigs Harry is doing is the WellChild awards for sick children, which he always used to do when he actually was a working royal."

“It will be incredibly high-profile.”

He added: “They will be all over the media, and you won’t be able to put a cigarette paper between what Harry and Meghan are doing and what Will and Kate are doing. It’s a calculated provocation on their part.

"They are seriously pushing their luck and risking the wrath of the Queen.”

Royal expert Kinsey Schofield also claimed the trip may not help the strained royal relations.

Host of the To Di For podcast, Kinsey said senior royals were "likely not thrilled" by news of their visit.

"When the Sussexes vaguely accused a member of the royal family with being racist, started suing British media, sued the Government, and moved out of the country – monarchists were left feeling betrayed," she said.

The Sussexes are expected to arrive in early September, with them lined up to attend the One Young World Summit in Manchester on the 5th.

The Duchess of Sussex is a counsellor for the One Young World Summit alongside Justin Trudeau, Sir Richard Branson, and Jamie Oliver, among others.

They will then head to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event, before returning to the UK for the WellChild Awards on September 8.

It remains unclear how long they will be here for but, in light of their fleeting visit for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June, it’s likely the pair won’t overstay their welcome.

As they head to the UK, later on in September Prince William’s set to go to New York – however, it’s been branded “unlikely” that he’ll go visit his brother and his family while there.
