While Prince Harry and wife Meghan are seemingly doing well in their new life in the US, a former friend of Harry's mother Diana claims the Queen 'would like' to see the pair return to their royal duties.

Photographer Kent Gavin believes that despite their move away from the UK, he thinks the Duke of Sussex will eventually step back into his role as a senior royal.

"And I hope they will, but only time will tell," Kent told 9Honey. "I certainly know the Queen would like it, from what I am hearing from people at the palace."

Kent added a lot of it would come down to what Prince Harry decides to include in his upcoming tell-all memoir.

"I don't know how they will go about that, the more Harry is going to disclose in those books, there is still a lot, we understand, to come out. It will be interesting to see," he said.

The photographer has been covering the royal family since he started working with the Queen in the 1960s. He's been named Royal Photographer of the Year seven times and Royal Photographer of the Decade twice, in the 1980s and 1990s.

He was also the only photographer invited on the Royal Barge at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee flotilla in 2012.

It comes as it was reported the Queen was set to extend an 'olive branch' to her grandson, Prince Harry, and his wife, Meghan Markle as part of her upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The 95-year-old monarch is expected to award both Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, with commemorative Platinum Jubilee medals in 2022, according to Daily Express' royal correspondent Richard Palmer.

The pair will be honoured for their work on behalf of Her Majesty, despite stepping back from official royal duties in early 2020.

Since then, the Sussexes have established their own private charity, Archewell and inked multi-million dollar deals with media giants Netflix and Spotify. They recently embarked on a three-day tour of New York City, their first since quitting their roles with the royal family.
