On July 1, the grand opening of a monument to Princess Diana in honor of her 60th birthday will take place, but neither Meghan Markle nor Kate Middleton will be on it.
On July 1, Princess Diana’s 60th birthday, Prince Harry and his brother Prince William will attend the inauguration of the statue of Diana in the garden of Kensington Palace, which they honored the memory of their mother. Until that time, Prince Harry will be in a 10-day quarantine at the Windsor residence, where he and his wife lived before they stepped down from their royal duties and moved to Canada.
Meghan Markle temporarily refused to travel and will not come to London, as she is busy looking after her newborn daughter Lilibet and two-year-old son Archie.
Kate Middleton will not be present at the event either: due to coronavirus restrictions, “only Diana’s close relatives are allowed to attend the ceremony.” An exception was made only for the sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and garden designer Pip Morrison.
Harry last visited the UK in April when he attended the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip. The upcoming meeting of the brothers promises to be tense, especially considering that Prince William and Kate Middleton recently announced a boycott to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Recall that a year and a half ago, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned and left England. Since then, their relationship with the royal family has deteriorated. It all started with an interview with Oprah, during which it became known about Megan’s suicidal thoughts, bullying by Kate Middleton and discussions about the skin color of Archie, the son of Harry and Megan. And in the podcast “Sofa Expert” Harry compared his previous life to The Truman Show and said that he felt like an animal in a zoo cage.
