• Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to return to the UK in September for charity work. 
  • Events on their itinerary include the WellChild Awards 2022, hosted in London.
  • It's unclear whether there'll be any public visits with the Queen, Prince William, and Prince Charles.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are weeks away from returning to the UK for the first time since their appearance at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June.

A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed to Insider that the couple will be back on British soil in September to meet with charitable groups they closely work with.

"Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts," they said.

According to the spokesperson, events on the Sussexes' agenda include The One Young World Summit in Manchester on September 5, an organization Markle has been linked to since 2014. According to the official event website, the Duchess of Sussex served as a counselor at the 2014 and 2016 summits, prior to marrying Harry in 2018

After a brief visit to Dusseldorf, Germany, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be back in the UK on September 8 for the WellChild Awards in London, the spokesperson added. 

It isn't clear whether there will be any public royal family reunions

Given that the visit to the UK appears to be more work-related rather than for personal reasons, it's not yet clear whether reunions with the royal family are in the cards. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex last made a public appearance alongside the British royals in June. The couple attended a royal event, their first since stepping back from royal life in 2020, at St. Paul's Cathedral in honor of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. During the event, they sat on opposite sides of the aisle and did not appear to interact with Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. 

While it's unclear whether they'll make public appearances with the royal family, it's possible the couple will privately visit with family in the UK.

During their time in London for the Jubilee, the Sussexes reportedly privately introduced their youngest child, Lilibet, to Prince Charles and the Queen. An anonymous source told People Magazine's Simon Perry at the time Charles had an "emotional" reaction to meeting Lilibet, who was also celebrating her first birthday the same weekend.

"It was a fantastic visit. The prince was delighted to see his grandson and meet his granddaughter for the first time," the source said. 

Prior to the Jubilee, in April, the couple also paid a private visit to the Queen during a trip to Europe ahead of the Invictus Games, a competition for injured service personnel founded by Harry. 

The meeting was Markle's first in-person encounter with the Queen since the Duke and Duchess' interview with Oprah Winfrey. Harry was last seen with the Queen publicly at Prince Philip's funeral in April 2021.  

Buckingham Palace did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
