Harry and Meghan will arrive with their children Archie and Lilibet for the Queen’s jubilee – the anticipation is obviously great.
The celebrations for the platinum throne jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II (96) will take place next weekend. On this occasion, Prince Harry (37) and Duchess Meghan (40) will also arrive with their two children Archie (3) and Lilibet (11 months). According to unspecified sources, the monarch is looking forward to the meeting, as the “Daily Mail” reports. Her great-granddaughter will see the Queen for the first time on this occasion – and not only that: they are apparently planned to spend time together privately on Saturday (June 4), when Lili celebrates her first birthday.
The family of four are said to be staying at Frogmore Cottage, which is still their home in the UK, during their stay. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan announced their retirement as senior royals in early 2020 and moved to the United States. They live with their children in Montecito, California.
Will Doria Ragland come along as a babysitter?
As several British media reports, it is expected that Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland (65) will also travel to Great Britain. Royal expert Martin Townsend (61) told the “Express” that he “wouldn’t be surprised at all”. Ragland could look after her grandchildren while Meghan and Harry attend royal events. After all, the children are still “very small” and Meghan’s mother has often been “involved” in the past. It could just as well be that “Meghan and Harry have taken other precautions and have a nanny with them for their children”.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are currently being accompanied by a Netflix camera team for a documentary series. However, there will apparently be no private insights into the royal family during the platinum throne anniversary: According to royal insiders, Harry and Meghan are said not to be allowed to shoot in royal palaces or residences, as reported by the US celebrity site “Page Six”.
When will Harry and Meghan appear at the throne jubilee?
The main multi-day celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee begins on June 2 with the Trooping the Color parade. At the traditional event, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will probably not be on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. In addition to the monarch, only members of the royal family who perform royal tasks and duties and their children should appear there.
According to “People” magazine, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry could appear in a different role in “Trooping the Color”, for example in a carriage at the parade.
The couple is also expected to perform with the royals on June 3. A thanksgiving service will be held for the Queen at London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral on this date. According to The Telegraph, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend.
