Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan come to England. These are the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee events they’re said to be attending.
It has recently been decided: Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are returning to England for the platinum throne jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. They will not wave from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, but they will be expected at another event together with the royal family.
The couple, who are due to arrive with their two children Archie, three, and Lilibet, who celebrates her first birthday on June 4, are expected to perform alongside the royals on June 3. A thanksgiving service for the Queen will then be held at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral. According to The Telegraph, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend.
Largest royal gathering of the celebrations
Many members of the royal family are expected to attend the ceremony. They include Prince Andrew, the Queen’s son, who is no longer a working royal because of his ties to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Some of the Queen’s older great-grandchildren, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, could also attend the service, according to media reports. Meghan and Harry’s children are probably too young to be there.
Elizabeth II herself is said to have planned to attend the service. It is said to be the only platinum jubilee event where the Queen will perform with all of her children and grandchildren. The monarch had canceled some appointments in the past few months due to mobility problems.
Carriage ride for Meghan and Harry?
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 fulfill 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 Sussexes are also likely to attend a few other events during the four-day celebrations.
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.
