The Windsor clan is gathered around the Queen for the Jubilee. The festivities commemorate the seventy years of her reign. This Thursday, June 2, Trooping the Colour kicked off the celebrations. They will last until Sunday, June 5. The Queen appeared, surrounded by the family to greet the crowd, around noon on Thursday. However, the Sussexes were not at her side on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. The honor of appearing there was reserved for members of the royal family, who have an official role in the monarchy. However, this is no longer the case of the couple since the Megxit in March 2020.
Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their children, however, traveled from the United States, where they live, to surround His Majesty in this Jubilee. The Duchess of Sussex had not stepped on English soil for two years. If they were deprived of a balcony, Meghan and Harry still attended the military parade from the front row. They were seen at the windows of the Major General, a room overlooking the square where Trooping the Colour was held.
Meghan Markle, photographed in a moment of complicity with Savannah Phillips, Mia Tindall and the other children of the royal family, was very noticed. As The Sun recalled, the parents of Archie and Lilibet then joined the seats reserved for them. Discreet seats, which remained however an honor. Prince Andrew, in disgrace since the Epstein affair broke out, had not been gratified.
The children of Kate Middleton made their show
The children of Prince William and Kate Middleton made a big impression during Trooping The Colour. They first paraded in a carriage, alongside their mother and the Duchess of Cornwall. Then, George, Charlotte and Louis went out on the balcony with their parents. The youngest of the Cambridges was particularly outstanding. To the point of stealing the show from his grandmother!
The little boy multiplied the antics, under the tenderized eye of his grandfather, Prince Charles. Sometimes covering his ears, sometimes grimacing, the heir of the sovereign addressed her while she greeted her subjects. Charming picture of a little Louis of England, who seems very complicit with her Majesty.
