  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are returning to the U.K. in September and plan to stay at Frogmore Cottage
  • Frogmore Cottage is only 800 meters away from Prince William and Kate Middleton's home in Adelaide Cottage
  • The royal couples are "unlikely to meet" unless pre-arranged, according to insiders

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle might end up being neighbors with Prince William and Kate Middleton, but their paths are unlikely to cross.

The 37-year-old Duke and 41-year-old Duchess of Sussex will return to the United Kingdom next month, and they reportedly plan to reside in their five-bedroom Frogmore Cottage at the Windsor Estate of Queen Elizabeth II, which is only 800 meters away from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new home in the Adelaide Cottage, The Sun reported.

But unnamed sources claimed it's unlikely for Prince Harry to encounter Prince William, 40, since they are "barely on speaking terms" and have "no plans" to meet since the former left Kensington Palace in 2019 with the Los Angeles-born actress in a controversial move dubbed "Megxit."

Editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward shared that she didn't think "they would bump into one another unless it was pre-arranged."

She added, "I suppose one could go round with some flowers as a peace offering, but remember what happened last time."

Seward pertained to the incident when Middleton, 40, turned up with a peace offering before the Duchess of Sussex's wedding after fighting over a "bridesmaid dress fitting." Markle allegedly slammed the door on Middleton and threw the gifted flowers in a trash bin nearby.

On Sept. 5, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would make their way to Manchester for the One Young World Summit, where Markle would reportedly give the keynote address during the opening ceremony in front of young leaders from more than 90 countries, according to the Daily Mail.

From there, the couple would jet off to Germany for another event, the commemoration of the year until the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf on Sept. 6. Prince Harry would then give a speech at the WellChild Awards in London, England, on Sept. 8, before heading back to the U.K.

Prince Harry and Markle last visited the U.K. in June during the Jubilee celebrations. Before that, they "secretly met" with Charles, the Prince of Wales, and the Queen while heading to the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton recently moved into the Adelaide Cottage alongside their children, 8-year-old Prince George of Cambridge, 7-year-old Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, and 4-year-old Prince Louis of Cambridge.

An unnamed source close to the royal family told The Sun last month that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were "very keen" to start anew in the Windsor Estate and move closer to the 96-year-old Queen, who has been experiencing "mobility problems."

"Adelaide Cottage fits the bill because it is a four-bedroom home and they do not need any more as they have no live-in staff," the source said, "They were adamant they didn't want anything too showy or anything that needed renovating or extra security so as not to be a burden on the taxpayer."

The source added that they would be paying the rent from their "private accounts" and that the move would be advantageous for their children, who may attend school locally.
