The Oscars 2020 is just a few hours away and one of the hottest news that would potentially excite royal fans is Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s presence. Turns out, the former royals were invited by the Academy Awards but reportedly turned down the invitation. According to a report in Page Six, it was first rumoured that Meghan and Harry will be in Hollywood this weekend for the Oscars. Not just that, it was also reported that the high-profile couple were likely to present the Oscar for the Best Film or Documentary category.
However, looks like we will have to wait a tad bit longer till we see the couple at a glitzy red carpet event. A source told Hello!: “They were honoured by the request, but declined the invitation.” Meghan and Harry recently made their first joint appearance since stepping down at JP Morgan’s Miami billionaire’s summit. Rumours have also been doing the rounds, that the two rubbed shoulders with Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez as they met them for dinner.
Since they announced their exit from the British Royal Family, Meghan and Harry have announced started their new life in Canada’s Vancouver Island with their son Archie Harrison. They have been lying low and not yet been spotted by the paparazzi apart from the one off incident which included Meghan taking a stroll with baby Archie and walking her two dogs. Multiple international reports have speculated that it won’t be too long before Meghan Markle returns to Hollywood in some capacity.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
