In June 2022, large-scale celebrations are planned in the UK in honor of the 70th anniversary of the accession of Elizabeth II to the throne (this happened on February 6, 1952). According to one of the Buckingham Palace insiders, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle expressed a desire to attend the solemn event, which is already becoming a serious “headache” for the organizers of the event.
The Platinum Party at the Palace is expected to feature a live concert featuring “the world’s largest show business stars”, as well as a spectacular theatrical performance with the participation of 50,000 artists. In addition, the queen, who loves horses, will visit the Epsom Derby, one of the most prestigious horse races in the world.
However, the presence of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex represents a serious “protocol nightmare” for the palace staff. Deciding what events they will be allowed to attend and where they can be hosted becomes a real challenge. Moreover, the royal officials reasonably fear that the presence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the celebration may overshadow the main news feed, and they will again draw all attention to themselves.
“This is a celebration of the Queen’s 70 years of service to the people and cannot be overshadowed,” a source told The Sun.
We will remind that today it became known that the inhabitants of the United Kingdom asked Elizabeth II to deprive all titles of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Against the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a petition called “The Right Deed” was created – in two weeks it was signed by more than 43 thousand Britons. According to the Daily Star, the initiator was Lady Colin Caspbell, author of books about the royal family.
