In June, the United Kingdom will have celebrations in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. There are talks about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle possibly returning to the country on this occasion to see the royal family. However, according to an author, Prince William is reportedly “worried” about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex trying to “pull a stunt” during Her Majesty’s special event.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will likely visit the U.K. for the jubilee celebrations
Harry and Meghan have only returned to the U.K. together once since stepping down as senior royals in 2020. In April 2022, the couple briefly visited Queen Elizabeth on their way to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games. Now it seems they will visit Harry’s home country again in June.
“Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children,” a spokesperson for the Sussexes said (via CNN).
With that said, even if Harry and Meghan attend, the pair and their children will not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony during the Trooping the Colour parade. According to a palace spokesperson, only “royals carrying out official duties” will be on the balcony, which means Prince Andrew will be excluded as well.
Prince William is allegedly ‘worried’ about the Sussexes trying to ‘pull a stunt,’ author says
It remains to be seen what Harry and Meghan will do in the U.K. if they do visit. However, royal author Tom Bower alleged that some royals, including Prince William, might be on edge.
“William will worry that Harry and Meghan will pull a stunt to try to get the limelight,” Bower said (via The Sun).
The author also added, “Kate and William would be foolish not to be suspicious and would be unwise not to be cautious.”
A royal expert believes this is the ‘wrong time’ for Queen Elizabeth to see the Sussexes’ kids
Queen Elizabeth had met Harry and Meghan’s older child, Archie. However, their younger child, Lilibet, was born in the U.S. in 2021 and has not met Her Majesty yet. It is likely Lilibet and the queen will be introduced to each other if Harry and Meghan attend the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Yet, royal expert Angela Levin believes this would be the “wrong time” for an introduction.
“I think it is wrong for them to bring their small children over at this time,” Levin said (via Express). “The Queen is going to be very heavily in demand. There is a lot she has to do during that weekend.”
Levin added, “It will be hard for her because she doesn’t have the energy nor the mobility. To have small children, who don’t know her, coming around for tea is another burden on her. They could have come any time before now, and done it quietly and nicely, and that would have been a very special and intimate family event. But with so much going on during the Jubilee, it is just the wrong time.”
