The Queen of England has reportedly invited Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to her 95th birthday celebrations in June despite the couple’s controversial break from the royalty.
This is thought to be the Royal Family’s first public reunion with the couple since last year when they decided to step back from official royal duties
A senior royal aide told the newspaper: “The current plan is for the Queen’s birthday parade to go ahead in London as normal, with the acceptance that it may need to be adapted or scaled back depending on what guidelines are in force at the time. But the aspiration and the ultimate desire is to make it happen.”
Last year, a scaled-down Trooping the Colour took place at Windsor Castle, with Her Majesty being the only royal in attendance. Traditionally the monarch is joined by her family members on the balcony at Buckingham Palace during the public ceremony.
The Sussexes were last seen publicly with the royal family at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March 2020
A source close to the couple told The Times of London that they have “no plans” to use social media for their new company, Archewell, and are “very unlikely” to resume use of their personal accounts in the foreseeable future. The former royal couple is understood to have become disillusioned by the “hate” they encountered on social media.
