Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, like the rest of the British royal family, must mark their calendars. Why? Because in 2022, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her platinum jubilee with a series of events. In June 2022, the festivities will culminate in a lavish four-day celebration. It’s “vital,” according to a royal author, that they attend to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s reign of 70 years.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry haven’t seen Queen Elizabeth in years.
Harry and Meghan haven’t been seen in public with Queen Elizabeth in a long time. In fact, the three of them haven’t been seen in public since March 2020.
The Duke and Duchess of York had already announced that they would be stepping down as senior working royals. By the spring, they’d completed the last of their official appearances. For Commonwealth Day, the couple joined Queen Elizabeth and other royals.
Meghan, who is now 40 years old, and Harry, who is 37 years old, attended a commemorative service on March 11, 2020. They had an awkward encounter with Prince William and Kate Middleton while being photographed alongside Queen Elizabeth and other royals.
According to a royal author, Harry and Meghan must attend Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee to cement their royal family ties.
It’s critical that Harry and Meghan attend the festivities, according to Ian Lloyd, author of The Duke: 100 Chapters in the Life of Prince Philip. They must remind the world of their connection to the British royal family, as the royal biographer told The United States Sun in November 2021.
“I’d be surprised if they didn’t show up for the Jubilee next year,” he said. “And that’s because their brand is built on their association with the royal family.”
“As much as they appear to fight it and go their own way to do things, the only reason they are getting the fame they have now is because Harry is the grandson of Elizabeth II and his mother was Princess of Wales, Diana, who everyone in America adored,” Lloyd continued.
“Being associated with the royal family is extremely important, so I believe they would want to become associated with them simply to keep their brand alive,” he added.
According to reports, Harry and Meghan will spend Christmas with Queen Elizabeth.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to have finalized their Christmas plans. They are traveling to England with their children, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet “Lili” Mountbatten-Windsor.
Harry reportedly felt “helpless” during Queen Elizabeth’s brief hospitalization in October 2021. As a result, despite concerns about his grandmother’s health, he and Meghan have decided to spend Christmas with her. As a result, Lili will have the opportunity to meet her namesake for the first time. It’s also possible that Harry and Meghan will attend the Sandringham Christmas church service.
