Perez Hilton believes Prince Harry and Meghan Markle need to pack up their California mansion and return to the United Kingdom where they belong.
“Honestly, they need to give up and move back to the UK,” Hilton, 45, exclusively told Page Six at Tao’s grand opening for Cathédrale at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday.
“I feel like it’s inevitable. I don’t mean this as an insult but they’re both boring. The only thing that makes them interesting is the family in the UK and all of that drama.”
The gossip blogger predicted that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex won’t make it in Hollywood in the long run.
“In America, she and he are not royals to us. We’re not their subjects. They’re just celebrities and they have to play by the rules of celebrity,” Hilton said. “You have to work at it to maintain celebrity because the only way to monetize your celebrity is to maximize it and feed the machine.”
The podcast host, however, admitted that Markle has already hit it off with celebrity power players.
“She’s hanging out regularly with Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, with Ellen DeGeneres, with Oprah [Winfrey]. It doesn’t get any more Hollywood than that,” Hilton said.
But Hilton also thinks that the niceties won’t last forever.
“It’s still fairly young and new. They’re in their honeymoon period, so to speak, and I feel like they’ll end up moving back eventually because that would also be good for business for them even if they’re still not working royals,” he said.
Hilton also believes that Markle, 41, and Harry, 38, won’t be able to “resonate” with a lot of Americans because people find them “boring” and “hypocritical.”
“They’re still calling themselves the Duke and Duchess but they hate the institution. They’re calling their daughter and son Princess and Prince but they hate the institution,” Hilton said, adding, “I don’t dislike them, but I don’t like them either.”
The media personality is convinced that Harry wanted to leave his family because he was tired of playing second fiddle to his older brother, Prince William, who is first in the line of succession to the British throne.
“I respect what it all boils down to which is, Harry never liked being the ‘Spare,’” Hilton said, referring to Harry’s new memoir “Spare,” which riffs off the red-headed royal’s claim that his father King Charles III said on the day of his birth that he now has an “heir and a spare.”
“I get that. He never wanted to play by the palace rules. I get that. He was a grown man and wanted to make his own decisions and he wasn’t allowed to do that under the system that he was in,” Hilton said. “So that’s why I do feel like he will ultimately end up moving back because there will be some kind of compromise.”

Hilton continued, “It’s a business but it’s also a family and that’s weird. [He left] not even his family but all of his friends too. Everyone. He’s in a whole other country.”
In 2020, Markle and Harry resigned from their royal duties and moved to Montecito, Calif., where they reside with their two kids — Prince Archie, 3, and Princess Lilibet, 1 — and have been rubbing shoulders with some of Hollywood’s biggest names.
But tensions have been high between the couple and many members of the royal family since they quit royal life and proceeded to bash the monarchy in several interviews, a Netflix special and Harry’s controversial book.
Despite the royal rifts, Harry will be supporting his estranged father, 74, on Coronation Day this weekend, though it’s unclear if he will have an official role to play. As for William, the Prince of Wales, 40, will pledge his allegiance to Charles and recite the Homage of Royal Blood during the historical ceremony.
Meanwhile, Markle will remain home in California with her kids to celebrate Archie’s fourth birthday, which falls on the same day as Charles’ coronation.
