A move that could make people cringe. From June 2, London will be decked out in its finest attire for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. To celebrate her 70 years of reign, Elizabeth II has planned to put the small dishes in the big ones. “The festivities will feature an extensive program of events that will blend the best of British ceremonial splendor and pageantry with technically advanced artistic presentations,” the British government announced several months ago.
And for this very important event, the whole royal family could be present, even Harry and Meghan! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would indeed plan to return to the United Kingdom with their two children for the Jubilee weekend. But this presence would not please everyone. Indeed, according to the Sun, the queen would be eager to see the whole small family, but friends of Prince Charles and several members of the royal family would fear that the arrival of Harry and Meghan will overshadow the event in honor of Elizabeth II.
“Charles wants the Platinum Jubilee to focus solely on the Queen,” a source told the tabloid, before adding, “They don’t want it to become Harry and Meghan’s show. Charles and the whole family are d agreement on this point.”
Netflix invited to the Jubilee of Elizabeth II?
Another factor would also bother the Royal Family if Harry and Meghan are present for the festivities. Currently in the Netherlands for the Invictus Games, the couple is being followed by Netflix teams as part of a documentary series that the Sussexes are producing. A project that pays them big because they signed a contract for 112 million pounds sterling (130 million euros) with the streaming platform. While Harry and Meghan have already been accused of allowing Netflix cameras to film their secret visit to Elizabeth II and Charles this Thursday, April 14, the royal family fears that the American giant is pressuring to participate in the Jubilee. “They’ll want to film backstage or be in the crowd at Jubilee because that’s better footage for the documentary,” a source told The Sun. But it is not yet known if the parents of Archie and Lilibet would have given their consent for this. The party shouldn’t be spoiled though.
