Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be welcomed back into the Royal Family on Thursday despite having 'mutinied in the most spectacular fashion', a royal expert has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the annual Trooping the Colour to kick off the nation's long weekend celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
But, reports royal writer Daniela Elser, "they will reportedly be ignominiously bussed to Horse Guards Parade with other extended members of the royal family, rather than making the journey in the royal carriage procession as they did in 2019".
However, a lot has changed in three years.

Megxit has come and gone, and with it came a slew of public appearances by Harry and Meghan in the US in which they were… less than complimentary on the House of Windsor.
In their infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple even declared to a reported global audience of 50million people that the palace may in fact be institutionally racist. The palace insists that "recollections may vary".
And so, as Ms Elser puts it, this long weekend with the eyes of the world upon them may turn out to be very important for Harry and Meghan.
"To put it another way," the news.au.com columnist writes, "it is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who are responsible for sparking one of the biggest crises in modern royal history, and it is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who have now turned up (in part at least) for crumpets and some quality family time."

Other royal experts agree the Jubilee may be crucial for the Sussex's ongoing relationship with the palace.
Speaking exclusively to The Star, royal expert Kinsey Schofield, founder of To Di For Daily and the To Di For Daily podcast, believes that Harry and Meghan’s attendance is a big step in helping their relationship with William and Kate.
She said: “It is the first step toward real healing. This is only the second time (that we know) Meghan has returned to the UK and will likely be face to face with Prince William and Catherine for the first time since Megxit.
"The Royal Family might be in a position to sit back and relax and not worry about the Sussexes across the pond sending PR grenades in their direction if all goes well. I think that sense of peace would be of great significance to the Queen.”
