  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been invited to appear at family events during the weekend of Jubilee celebrations in June.
  • This includes the traditional balcony appearance and a service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral.
  • This, however, does not mean the couple will have any formal role in the festivities.


Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth have mended their broken bridges.

The couple, who stepped back as senior members of the royal family in 2020, has been invited by the queen to appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony as part of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

This, however, does not mean the couple will have any formal role in the festivities.

Per The Telegraph, Queen Elizabeth invited the royal couple to appear at family events during the weekend of Jubilee celebrations, including the traditional balcony appearance and a service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral.

Prince Harry and Meghan are yet to confirm whether they will return to the UK for the festivities. In an interview with Today's Hoda Kotb, the 37-year-old admitted that there were a couple of security issues surrounding the arrangements of coming but added that he is trying to get his kids to meet her.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex last joined the royal family on Buckingham Palace's iconic balcony for Trooping the Colour in 2019.

The couple stopped over in the UK to visit the queen at Windsor Castle while en route to The Hague in the Netherlands for the annual Invictus Games, which kicked off over the weekend.

Speaking about their short visit, Harry told BBC One it was "great" to see his grandmother. 

Elsewhere in the interview on Today, the British royal revealed that he is always "making sure that she's protected and got the right people around her" after she tested positive for Covid-19.
