Queen ‘would love’ Harry and Meghan at Jubilee but balcony moment ‘unlikely’

Royal biographer Omid Scobie has suggested that we can expect Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to attend the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations next year, but the public appearances may not be as we expect.

Next year marks the Queen’s 70th year on the throne, making her the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee.

Nationwide festivities are planned, with an extended bank holiday set to run from June 2 to June 5.

Amid the preparations, there has been speculation around whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will travel back to the UK from their US base for the occasion having split from the Royal Family in 2020.

Now, speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast, royal biographer Omid Scobie has suggested that Harry and Meghan will likely attend the event, but may remain out of the spotlight.

He claimed: “There was a lot of talk about the couple coming back for some element of the Jubilee next year, and I do think that that will still be the case.

“Will it be a balcony moment? I don’t think so, but I do think that the couple will want to acknowledge it in their own way.

“By then, it’s a very safe time to come over, the children are old enough to fly a little bit more comfortably. I imagine with a new-born… at the end of the day this is a new-born child, I think they’re going to want to do that – especially the long overseas trip – when it’s a lot more comfortable.”

So, rather than using Lilibet’s christening as the opportunity to return to the UK to spend some time with the family, Omid suggested that the Jubilee would be an appropriate opportunity for the couple to visit.

He added: “My money is on the Jubilee, I know that the Queen would love to have them over for an aspect of it, so I would imagine that that conversation, if it isn’t already happening, will be happening soon.”
