Prince Harry‘s diplomatic immunity in the US would mean that any attempts by Meghan Markle to start divorce proceedings in the future would be halted, according to an Instagram post by a social media user this week which was reshared by a royal expert.
According to the royal insiders, Meghan Markle would be forced to do the unthinkable — return to England where she has no supporters to get Prince Harry to sign the divorce papers.
Not many believe that Meghan Markle will step foot in London because of her unpopularity amongst the British people.
Royal commentator Dan Wootton said that after her controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey, there are “genuine concerns” that she would be humiliated by members of the public who would boo her.
He explained: “There are genuine concerns that she could be booed at an event attended by members of the public given her current unpopularity in the UK as a result of the Oprah interview.”
Fans of the royal family, who back Prince William and Kate Middleton, are salivating over the information and have taken to social media to let Meghan Markle know how they feel.
One person said: “If she does go over to Britain, I hope the British people boo her.”
Another royal enthusiast claimed: “I cannot forgive her … how could Willy?”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shocked the world with their interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, after stepping down from their roles as senior working members of the British royal family last year.
The couple — who married on the grounds of Windsor Castle almost three years ago — has since moved to California with their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who will be two years old next month.
Royal expert Angela Levin reshared a post this week from an Instagram user who claimed that Prince Harry’s diplomatic immunity would mean the US State Department would suspend any divorce proceedings in the event of Meghan Markle filing for divorce while the couple still lives in America.
Levin questioned “if Meghan knew this” and labeled it a “very interesting” revelation about Harry’s diplomatic immunity in the USA.’
Any divorce between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to take place in London, UK, where the same diplomatic immunity does not apply to the royals.
In recent months there has been speculation that the Duke of Sussex might try to obtain citizenship in the US by applying for dual citizenship, but a source denied this and said they did not think he would “apply for a green card” at any point.
It is thought that he has been able to stay so long without permanent residency due to his status as a member of the royal family, despite having stepped down as a working royal last year.
Experts have suggested he is staying there with an A1 visa, which is granted to diplomats and other government officials.
Citizenship in the US would mean that Prince Harry would be required to formally renounce all titles and nobility associated with his position.
There is a possibility that royal experts weighed in on a potential Meghan Markle and Prince Harry divorce after the Duchess of Sussex’s sister, Samantha Markle, revealed that the royal couple would split.
She recently told TMZ: “Maybe he’s already questioning it. He has to be if he has a functioning frontal lobe. He’s not 12. He’s got to have a sense of, ‘Oh, my God, everything you’ve said to me has been a lie. I see [the marriage] ending in divorce unless they get extensive counseling and can agree to work on being honest, to work on apologies, to work on everyone that they’ve damaged in the course of this bull-in-a-china-shop two-year spiel.”
Supporters are hoping that the power couple will stay together forever.
