Meghan and Harry only coming to UK for family reunion ‘They don’t care about the balcony’ | Royal | News

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and their children are to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations but have been omitted from the Trooping the Colour balcony appearance by the Queen. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed on Friday, also their son Archie’s third birthday, that they were “excited and honoured” to attend the commemorations for the monarch’s milestone in June with their eldest child and his sister Lilibet. But the Queen has limited the Trooping the Colour balcony appearance to working members of her family, with the Duke of York and Harry and Meghan missing out.

Speaking to Daily Pop on E! News, presenter Loni Love said: “First of all, Meghan and Harry asked to come to the Jubilee.

“They didn’t ask to be on the balcony so, I think that’s the thing.

“I think this is more about Prince Andrew and making sure he’s not on it that Harry and Meghan.

“They just added Harry and Meghan so it wouldn’t look they snubbed Andrew.

“They just added Harry and Meghan so it wouldn’t look they snubbed Andrew.

“The thing that Harry and Meghan reportedly want to do is make sure that their grandchildren meet the Queen.

It is not known which elements of the four-day Jubilee weekend Harry and Meghan could make an appearance at.

A spokeswoman for the couple said: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children.”

On June 2, Trooping the Colour, the sovereign’s official birthday parade, will kick start the four days of Jubilee festivities, with 18 members of the royal family set to gather on the famous frontage, with the Queen “looking forward” to the weekend of celebrations.

A Palace spokesman said: “After careful consideration, the Queen has decided this year’s traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday June 2 will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the royal family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen.”

Joining the Queen on the balcony for Trooping will be the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

Also set to appear for the historic occasion will be Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis and the Wessexes’ children Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.
