Prince Harry and Meghan will be visiting the UK with their children for the event Platinum Jubilee for the Queen of England next month. Even so they, along with Prince Andrew, were not invited up to the balcony of Buckingham Palace as part of the celebrations.
The plan was announced by the kingdom to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, the title for Queen Elizabeth II after becoming the first British monarch to do so in 70 years.
The Platinum Jubilee was awarded on February 6th, but the celebration will take place on June 2-5.
Harry and Meghan have confirmed they will be attending the celebration. This will be the queen’s first chance to meet her great-grandson, Lilibet.
CNN explains that several members of the royal family will appear on the balcony of the famous Buckingham Palace during the Trooping the Color parade. This parade will start the Platinum Jubilee celebration on Thursday (2/6) morning.
A royal spokeswoman told CNN that only royals carrying out official duties would appear on the balcony.
This means Prince Harry and Meghan will not attend. The couple have been separated from the royal family since 2020 and are no longer taking part in royal duties.
Apart from the couple, Prince Andrew, who had been stripped of his royal duties and his His Royal Highness title for sexual assault, was not invited to the balcony.
The queen explained that the source would be accompanied by her three other children, Charles, Edward and Anne. In addition, also with Prince William and Kate and their children and the rest of the royal family.
Even though they weren’t invited to the balcony of Buckingham Palace, that doesn’t mean Harry, Meghan and Andrew weren’t involved in the celebrations at all. They may be invited to other events such as St. Paul.
