A platinum jubilee puzzle of Queen Elizabeth II

Although they have left the Royal Family, Meghan Markle and Harry wish to be present at the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. A “puzzle” for Buckingham Palace.

The year 2022 will mark the 70th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, who ascended to the throne on February 6, 1952. And while on the Buckingham side, a four-day weekend of celebrations is planned to mark this historic date, future parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wish to participate.

“A puzzle” in this organization of this platinum jubilee that will take place from June 2 to 5 – Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3, 2022 have already been declared a holiday for the British – as reported by a close source.

The Queen has in fact just deprived the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their honorary military titles and royal patronage, following their decision this Friday, February 19, to no longer return as active members of the royal family. “Harry wants to be there.

It’s already creating a real headache and it could be embarrassing,” the source said. Where to put them if they are present? What events should they be allowed to attend? Should they be on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the fly-past? So many unanswered questions that pose real organizational problems.

There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan

The 70th anniversary celebration is of historical importance and should not be overshadowed by the presence of the couple. “There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan,” said the same source.

While it has not been an easy decision for the Queen, especially since she was looking forward to becoming a great-grandmother again, the couple who left the royal family in January 2020 does not seem intent on making things any easier.

Prince Harry, who has been deprived of his patronage with the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League and the London Marathon, and Meghan Markle, who will have to resign her position as patroness of the National Theatre, are obviously still eager to take part in the festivities.

On the side of Buckingham Palace, following this decision of Friday, February 19, a press release made a point of recalling that it was “saddened by their decision”, but declared that Meghan and Harry “remain very much loved members of the family”.
