Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee is scheduled for next June. This is a 4 day long weekend that all British people can enjoy. Moreover, the dates from June 2 to June 5, 2022 have been declared public holidays by the government. This is so that the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee can be celebrated as it should be. Of course, all members of the royal family will be present. In fact, even Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were invited to make an appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, according to Royal Stories.
It was Buckingham Palace staff members who revealed this invitation from the Queen to the Telegraph. Except that this invitation is likely to be rejected, according to the media. Indeed, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently in the Netherlands on the occasion of the Invictus Games. They paid a surprise visit to the Queen before embarking for the Netherlands. Although they plan to return by the end of the week, the chances of them making the trip to the UK are very slim. Note that it has been two years since Meghan Markle, 40, had not come to Europe. As for Prince Harry, he made an express trip to the country for Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021. Then, he made another trip to unveil a statue of his mother in Kensington last July.
The only public event allowed in the Sussexes
The parents of little Archie and little Lilibet will surely not be present on the balcony for the event, underlines Histoires Royales. It’s not just the distance between the United States and England that is likely to pose a problem. Indeed, “this appearance is the only public event to which the couple could be invited, since he is no longer an effective member of the royal family”, confides the media.
Note that various celebrations are planned during this Jubilee. Some celebrations will be reserved for active members of the royal family, such as the Trooping the Color parade.
