As for reports the Queen wants the Sussexes' to relocate to Africa to promote the Crown's interests, royal commentator Rob Shuter said on his iHeart Radio Show: "Meghan Markle is leaving Britain with her Prince and baby. [She] refuses to move to Africa, she wants to come to the USA."
Chatter about Africa began in April when sources inside Buckingham Palace claimed Queen Elizabeth hoped to "harness Harry and Meghan and this tremendous global attention they get" by placing them in a Commonwealth country like Botswana, Namibia or Kenya.
According to Mr Shuter, former actress Meghan vetoed the African plan after her lavish New York baby shower in February.
"After her baby shower in New York, Meghan knows she and Harry could do this, and if they did do this, they would become the unofficial king and queen of America," Mr Shuter said.
Earlier this week Prince Harry and Meghan were absent from official events marking American President Donald Trump's visit to London, with the Duchess still on maternity leave at Frogmore Cottage.
Of greater note was the fact Prince William and Kate Middleton were nowhere to be seen when the Trumps arrived at Buckingham Palace on Monday morning, where they were greeted by Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Despite the apparent snub, the Cambridges left their little ones Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis at home in Kensington Palace to make an appearance at a state banquet for President Trump and wife Melania on Monday night.
To return the favour, the Trumps hosted their own elegant dinner at Winfield House in London on Tuesday.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall represented Queen Elizabeth at the event, where Charles reportedly bonded with Donald over their shared love of California wine.
President Trump and the future King of England seemed to share a joke as they stood laughing together at the entrance of the house for photos.
Other guests invited to the dinner included British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Cabinet Secretary Mark Sedwill.
