American royal commentator Kinsey Schofield said the Duke of Sussex’s visit to his hometown will be more about “creating content” than “healing any old wounds” despite regrets he might have. Ms Schofield, founder of ToDiForDaily.com and author of book ‘R is for Revenge Dress’, told Express.co.uk: “I believe Prince Harry has regrets over the way that he handled his exit and perhaps his Oprah interview.
“Unfortunately, the Sussexes have responsibilities around creating content and I suspect that this trip has more to do with content creation than healing any old wounds.”
In January 2020, Harry and Meghan announced their sensational decision to step down from their senior royal duties and divide their time between the UK and North America.
The pair were forced to return their honorary military appointments and royal patronages, which were redistributed to working members of the Royal Family.
The couple moved to the US to lead a more independent life, and now live in a mansion in California with their two young children Archie and daughter Lilibet, who was named after her great-grandmother, the Queen.
In the announcement, the couple stated that the decision had come “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”.
They wrote that they wanted to “carve out a progressive new role within this institution”.
The couple added that whilst they were to “step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family” and will “work to become financially independent”, they would continue to “fully support Her Majesty The Queen”.
A few months later, the couple signed a lucrative deal with Netflix, and are expected to film content for their upcoming docu-series with the streaming giant while in the UK.
The couple made headlines with a bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview in March last year when Meghan, who is biracial, accused an unnamed royal of racism and Harry said his family had cut them off financially.
The series of bombshell claims made by the duo saw them being accused of severely damaging the Royal Family’s international reputation, while others questioned the accuracy of their allegations.

They accused an unnamed royal – not the Queen or Prince Philip – of making a racist comment about their son Archie.
In the interview, the couple claimed there had been “concerns and conversations” raised by a member of the family about what colour Archie’s skin would be.
Following his wife’s allegation, Harry said: “That conversation, I am never going to share.
“At the time, it was awkward, I was a bit shocked.”
They also claimed that a rift had arisen between Harry and Prince Charles, with the Duke claiming that at one point his father had “stopped taking my calls”.
Meghan also claimed Kate made her cry ahead of her royal wedding, following previous reports it was the other way around.
Their claims sparked a backlash and prompted the Royal Family to issue a rare statement, noting that they remain loved members of the family but recollections about their experience “may vary.”
Their relationship with the other royals has been frosty since then, most notably with Harry’s elder brother Prince William.
Harry’s criticisms of his family have continued since the Oprah interview and there was no obvious interaction between the brothers at a service at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations to mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
And now Harry’s upcoming tell-all memoir hangs over the Windsors and could be a core reason why the Dukes have failed to reconcile.
