Kate Middleton won’t meet Meghan Markle when she returns to the UK

Meghan Markle will return to Britain this week for her last engagements before stepping down as a senior royal.

But she won't be greeted by sister-in-law Kate Middleton .

After spending the festive season in British Columbia, Canada, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex briefly returned to the UK in January to make their bombshell announcement that they would no longer be working members of the Royal Family.

Just a couple of days after announcing their drastic lifestyle shift in an Instagram post on January 8, Meghan left the country with baby Archie and has not been back since.

Prince Harry has moved between the UK and North America in the last two months.

The couple will attend the Endeavour Fund Awards on Thursday so will likely be travelling to Britain in the next two days.

It will be Meghan's first royal engagement since her visit to Canada House in January.

She will also join Harry in attending the Mountbatten Festival on Saturday, and will attend events to mark International Women's Day on Sunday.

Their final official engagement will be on Monday when they join the Queen at Westminster Abbey for the service for Commonwealth Day.

However when Meghan touches down in Britain for the last time as a working royal, she won't be greeted by Prince William or his wife Kate.

That's because the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are out of the country on a three-day tour to Ireland intended to "highlight the many strong links between the UK and Ireland".

The two couples will meet for the first time since "Megxit" at the Commonwealth Day service, which will be broadcast live on BBC One and the BBC World Service.
