The banner-carrying ceremony will take place on June 12, but the Queen’s grandson plans to stay in the United States.
This decision was made because Markle’s health does not allow her to go anywhere after the birth of her daughter Lilibet Diana, who was born on June 4.
Although Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, the celebration in honor of her birth is arranged on the second Saturday in June-it is called the banner-Carrying holiday, which takes place at Windsor Castle. A press release from Buckingham Palace says that the birthday girl will be accompanied by her youngest son, Prince Edward, but nothing is said about the presence of other members of the royal family. Earlier, Prince Harry was also invited to a reconciliation dinner with Elizabeth II. He will likely arrive in the UK by July 1 for the opening ceremony of the monument to his mother, Princess Diana. This event is timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of her birth.
