‘I don’t know how welcome they’ll be’ for the Jubilee celebrations, Meghan and Harry have cautioned.
A royal analyst told This website that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could not get a warm welcome at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations next year.
Following a whirlwind tour in New York City, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have returned to California. The visit marked the couple’s first major outing since resigning as senior members of the Royal Family last year. Meghan, 40, and Harry, 37, paid their homage to the 9/11 victims at the monument at the old World Trade Center site while in New York.
They also visited with Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City, and Kathy Hochul, the governor of New York State.
The Sussexes then traveled to Central Park on Saturday to perform at an annual performance to combat poverty and climate change.
The couple spoke at the Global Citizen Live event, urging industrialized countries to share more COVID-19 vaccination doses with developing countries.
One of Harry and Meghan’s next big excursions could be to the United Kingdom next year for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Queen, who is Harry’s grandmother and is 95 years old, will mark the first time in British royal history that a monarch has reigned for 70 years.
While the Sussexes are thought to have been invited by the Queen herself, royal historian Hugo Vickers believes they may not be fully “welcome” for the celebration of Her Majesty’s illustrious reign.
Mr Vickers is a seasoned writer and royal critic who has written biographies of the Queen Mother and a number of other notable personalities from the twentieth century.
He has also served as chairman of the Commonwealth Walkway Trust and the Jubilee Walkway Trust.
“They talk of them coming over for this Jubilee,” he told this publication, “but I’m not sure how welcome they’ll be.”
“The Queen appears to be very generous to them, but I’m curious as to what the general public feels these days.”
“She’s taken in more folks in America since they speak that language a lot more.”
The Queen said in February that Harry and Meghan would not be returning as working royals.
The monarch said the pair are still “highly cherished members” of the family in a statement released after a 12-month evaluation of their standing.
It has not been confirmed whether Harry and Meghan will attend the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in the United Kingdom.
