Queen Elizabeth II extended an olive branch to her grandson Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and invited the couple to join the royal family for next summer’s platinum jubilee celebrations.
Duo ‘Megaxit’ – who gave up their royal duties last year to live in the US – the Queen’s official birthday parade, Troopingthe Colour, which is part of the four-day celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of the throne, is expected to attend, according to The Daily Mail.
However, it is unclear whether Harry, 36, and Markle, 39, will appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace next to the Queen and other senior royals at the traditional RAF bridge, the report said.
A royal source told the press: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been invited and I am sure the Queen is very much looking forward to seeing them there.”
“The balcony moment will be decided much earlier, but there is a limit to the number of family members they should have and I had thought that working royals contributing to the family would be higher on the list than the Sussex family.”added the source.
Prince Charles saying he would? Reducing the size of the monarchy as a king is believed to support a limited presence on the balcony, but Harry and Meghan’s supporters are likely to see contempt as evidence of the allegations of mistreatment by the royal family by the couple, the outlet said.
