The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit the UK next month for the first time since the Platinum Jubilee to attend a charity event – despite the ongoing row over their police protection.
Harry and Meghan will also visit Germany as part of their trip to support ‘several charities close to their hearts’, their spokesperson said.
The couple will travel to Manchester for the One Young World Summit, an event which brings together young leaders from more than 190 countries, on September 5.
The Duchess of Sussex is a counsellor for the organisation, alongside Justin Trudeau, Sir Richard Branson, and Jamie Oliver, among others.
They will then head to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go event, before returning to the UK for the WellChild Awards on September 8.
Their visit to the UK will be the first time they have been back in the country since the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in early June.
A spokesman for the couple said: ‘Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September.’

It follows reports last month that the Queen had invited the Sussexes to spent time with them at Balmoral this summer
It follows reports last month that the Queen had invited the Sussexes to spent time with them at Balmoral this summer.
A Balmoral source told The Sun on Sunday: ‘Staff have been told to expect the full list of royals including Harry, Meghan and their children Archie and Lilibet.
‘They are preparing for the Sussexes.’
If they decided to accept the visit, it would allow their children Archie and Lilibet to see their great-grandmother.
However, it is claimed that the Sussexes would not spend time with other royals such as Charles and William.
Another palace insider claimed that Harry and Meghan ‘barely had 15 minutes’ with The Queen during the hectic arrangements of her Platinum Jubilee this summer.
Another sources is reported to have said: ‘I would be stunned if they did turn up.’
The Queen usually spends the whole of August and some of September at her residence in the Scottish Highlands.
News of the Sussex’s return to the UK comes as a new royal biography made bombshell claims about the Duchess of Sussex.
Tom Bower, author of a new insider’s account of the royal couple titled Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, said the Duchess ‘thought the royal family would be like Hollywood.’
Speaking to Ben Shephard and Charlotte Hawkins on Good Morning Britain he claimed that once Meghan realised the royal family was ‘lots of work and little reward’, she didn’t like it anymore.
The author said: ‘It’s wrong to say she was a famous actress, she wasn’t, she was a third rate actress, Suits was only watched by a million people.’
During the interview, the author admitted that many of his sources were people who don’t like Meghan because she’d warned her nearest and dearest her not to speak to him.
Host Ben said to Tom: ‘She was a very famous actress. She had a high profile in Hollywood and Suits is a series that was streamed all over the world, so people knew who she was.’
Tom disagreed with the host, referring to Meghan’s cover story with Vanity Fair while she was dating Prince Harry.
‘Well we wont argue but I disagree with you,’ he said. ‘The point is, until she met Harry, even Graydon Carter the editor of Vanity Fair who commissioned the article never heard of her and never heard of Suits.
‘He was just told that anyone who marries Harry is going to be famous and she indeed was.’
‘She said to her father “I want to be famous, I want to walk down the red carpet” and marrying Harry she achieved exactly that ambition.’
The biographer went on to say he believes the royal family tried very hard to accommodate Meghan and include her in the family.
He claimed: ‘People were very excited by the fact that there was a mixed race girl coming’, adding: ‘It was going to be a great development for the royal family.’
However, he said ‘it went wrong’ and why it went wrong he said he has ‘explained fully’ in his new book.
‘Both sides are to blame but I believe the blame lies mostly with Meghan, who I don’t think understood the monarchy,’ he claimed.
The author went on to admit he got a lot of his information for the book from people who don’t like Meghan because she had warned the people closest to her not to speak to him.
He said: ‘She made it pretty clear to all her friends and people who work for her not to talk to me, so it was quite an uphill struggle but I got enough people to speak to me, more than enough, I got about 80 people.’
To which Ben asked how the book is going to be an unbiased account if we know the people interviewed already don’t like Meghan.
The author said: ‘Because I sifted through, I never put in stuff that isn’t true and can’t be checked.
‘You know I have some admiration for Meghan she succeeded quite well in her life with her ambitions and I was able to balance it all.’
The author said no lawsuits from the Royal couple’s legal team have been issued yet, but Bower is no stranger to visiting court over his controversial biographies.
Two unauthorised biographies of Robert Maxwell, father of convicted British convicted sex offender and former socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, landed Bower in hot legal water — but ultimately won the raft of cases thrown at him.
The author has penned original accounts of business tycoons including Richard Branson, Conrad Black and Bernie Ecclestone — but in his latest he has gone after the Sussexes.
The book was released on July 21.
