Harry and Meghan want to “keep it simple” during their Platinum Jubilee visit to England. They do not plan their own events.
Prince Harry (37) and his wife, Duchess Meghan (40), want to “keep it simple” during their visit to England to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s (96) platinum anniversary, a source told ITV.
The two are expected to attend the thanksgiving service with the Queen at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday morning (3/6) – and also the BBC party at the Palace the following evening (4/6), according to the report. However, they will not meet the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the “Trooping the Color” military parade (June 2nd).
No own events
The source added that the Sussexes will not be running their own program of events during their stay in the UK so as not to overshadow the four-day weekend of celebrations to mark Harry’s grandmother’s 70th government anniversary.
The insider also revealed that the Duke and Duchess will be flying in from the US without senior staff. Only a small security team will be there and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland (65). The couple’s closest associates remain in California.
They are staying at Frogmore Cottage
Harry and Meghan will be staying at their home in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage, along with their two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet – who celebrates her first birthday on Saturday.
They had resigned as senior royals more than two years ago and moved to California. The family of four will be arriving in the UK shortly.
