The Queen may employ Zara Tindall and Eugenie to alleviate Harry and Meghan’s jubilee tensions.
The Queen may utilize members of the Royal Family, such as Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie, during her Diamond Jubilee festivities next year in the hopes of alleviating tensions following Harry and Meghan’s departure from the monarchy.
Meghan Markle, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, left the Royal Family and their responsibilities as senior royals at the start of 2020, before making a series of surprising assertions about their time as royals in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The monarchy made it apparent that they did not agree with all of the Sussexes’ interpretations of events, stating that “some recollections may vary” in a statement released by Buckingham Palace.
Following the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departure to the United States, where they live in California with their two children Archie and Lilibet, other royals have stepped up to fill in for them at public events.
During the summer months, while Her Majesty was on vacation at her Scottish Balmoral home in Aberdeenshire, Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, took on a variety of royal engagements and extra responsibilities.
A similar strategy might be used by Queen Elizabeth II in the run-up to her Platinum Jubilee next year, with non-working members of the Royal Family taking a more active role in the festivities and the monarchy as a whole.
Non-working royals like cousins Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie may be included in the year-long celebrations marking Her Majesty’s 70 years at the helm of the Firm.
The suspicion about their presence comes amid reports that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be able to attend the celebration as non-working royals, allowing them to reunite with their extended family for the first time since their renunciation.
Non-working royals are expected to attend events like Trooping the Colour, which features members of the Royal Family waving from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, but they are under no obligation or intention to match engagements like the 507 conducted by Prince Charles in 2019 ahead of his role as king.
Zara, the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip and mother of three, sought a career as an Olympic rider and hasn’t let parenthood stop her from competing in equestrian contests.
