Royal Family news – Queen offers Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a MASSIVE olive branch with invite to Jubilee next year

June 28, 2021

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have been invited to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in 2022.

But questions remain over whether the battling royals will share a public balcony appearance outside Buckingham Palace.

The Queen has extended an olive branch to the Sussexes by inviting them to her mammoth Platinum Jubilee celebrations in summer.

According to the Mail on Sunday, the Duke and Duchess plan to attend the Queen’s official birthday parade which will take place over four days next June.

But it is unclear whether Harry and Meghan will appear on the balcony with the rest of the Royal Family. The celebrations will kick off with a full staging of Trooping the Colour, the parade of more than 1,400 soldiers that marks the queen’s official birthday.

The Sussexes intend returning to the UK for the special occasion.

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY ‘TOLD ROYALS THEY DIDN’T WANT ARCHIE TO BE A PRINCE’ BEFORE COMPLAINING HE WASN’T ONE DURING OPRAH INTERVIEW

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told the Royal Family they didn’t want Archie to be a prince before complaining he hadn’t been given the title during their tell-all chat with Oprah Winfrey, it’s been claimed.

    The Sussexes “never raised an issue” about their son not being made a prince with the Palace – but then brought it up during the bombshell interview in March, sources say.

    A source told the outlet that Meghan and Harry “never raised an issue” and that the Duke of Sussex had been “adamant” that Archie “should be raised without titles like his cousins Peter and Zara Phillips”.

    But in their shock interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan hinted otherwise and discussed the reason Archie was not made a prince when he was born, saying:

    “But in those months when I was pregnant, all around same time: we have in tandem he won’t be given security, a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

    HOMESICK’ HARRY ‘CALLING UK PALS FOR ADVICE & WANTS TO ADMIT MISTAKES’ AFTER FURY OVER PRINCE CHARLES COMMENTS

    Prince Harry has been calling pals in the UK for advice after his comments about his father backfired, according to a royal author.

    The “homesick” royal has a network of close friends back home in Britain – some he has known from his days as a party-loving bachelor.

    The “support system” is said to be made up of schoolmates, revellers at ‘Club H’ (the brothers’ basement disco at Highgrove), military comrades, royal mentors and aides.

    Many of the close-knit circle are also friends with his brother Prince William and attended both of their weddings.

    PRINCE HARRY ‘WANTED TO APPEAR ON JAMES CORDEN’S CHAT SHOW FOR YEARS’ AFTER THE ROYAL CONTACTED CORDEN BECAUSE HE WANTED TO ‘CHEER PEOPLE UP’

    During a chat with TV presenter James Corden, released in February, the Duke of Sussex 36, revealed he went from ‘zero to sixty’ with Meghan and how the pressures of living in London were ‘destroying my mental health.’ 

    During the lengthy chat, Harry told Corden that he ‘never walked away’ from the royal family and he did ‘what any husband or father would do’ by emigrating to Los Angeles. 

    The Hollywood Reporter told how producer Ben Winston said: ‘[Harry] said, “We’re coming out of lockdown, I’m in L.A., do you think we should plan something fun to almost cheer everybody up in a way”.’

    On a panel with Ru Paul about his CBS show, James explained: ‘There was a certain time in London if you went out long enough and ended up drinking long enough, you’d probably bump into Prince Harry once in a while.’

    He said he had ‘always been very, very fond of him’ and performed a 10 minute ‘bit’ at the royal wedding to Meghan in 2018.

    KATE MIDDLETON ‘JUST WANTS TO BRING THE FAMILY TOGETHER’

    Kate Middleton is “not the type to get het up” and wants to bring the Royal Family together amid the painful Meghan and Harry dramas, a source has claimed.

    But the Duchess of Cambridge may be off the guest list when a statue of Princess Diana is unveiled this week – meaning William and Harry could be meeting without the 'peacemaker'.

    Meghan had claimed that Kate made her cry at a bridesmaid fitting before her big wedding.

    But The Telegraph reported Kate Middleton was focusing on keeping the family together.

    The source claimed: "The Duchess hasn't said much about Oprah at all.

    "I think the bridesmaids' dress comments were the least of anyone's worries. And she's not really the type to get het up about these sorts of things.

    "She's just trying to help to bring the family back together and alleviate her husband's stress and sadness."

    NATIVE AMERICANS FEAR HARRY & MEGHAN ARE USING HOLY WATER TO IRRIGATE GARDENS

    Harry & Meghan are causing fear amongst Native Americans as they worry they are irrigating their gardens with what they regard as holy water.

    The couple’s £11million Californian mansion is built on land that once belonged to the Chumash tribe.

    The area is home to several hot and cold springs, plus a series of underground rivers, from which locals divert water.

    But tribe leader Eleanor Fishburn, 60, said it should not be used to irrigate their gardens.

    She said: “For us, this water is a pure water, a holy water and a ceremonial water.

    “As a native population, it is sacred for us and the idea that people in the area are using water from springs to water their gardens is something that doesn’t sit well with us.”

    MEGHAN AND HARRY FACE BACKLASH AFTER THEY TRY TO CLAIM THEY WEREN'T MISLEADING WITH 'CUT OFF' OPRAH CLAIMS

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have tried to claim they weren't misleading the public when they moaned that Prince Charles "cut them off" during their explosive Oprah chat.

    The Duke of Sussex told the world he was “cut off financially” by the Royals when he sat down for his infamous interview with Oprah earlier this year.

    But Prince Charles’ annual report, released last night, showed his youngest son received a “substantial” sum from him after Megxit.

    Figures show he gave both the Sussexes and Cambridges a share of £4.45million, despite Harry claiming he had been hung out to dry by the Firm.

    Harry famously told Oprah he had been "cut off in the first quarter of 2020" – allowing the public to believe he meant January to March.

    A spokesperson for the Sussexes said “it’s inaccurate to suggest that there’s a contradiction", and insisted Harry was talking about the first quarter of the financial year from April 2020.

    EXPERTS CLAIM KATE MIDDLETON FOUND MEGHAN MARKLE ‘DIFFICULT’ WHILST DIANA WOULD HAVE BEEN ‘THRILLED’ WILLIAM HAS PERFECT MATCH

    Princess Diana would have been “thrilled” Prince William has found his “perfect match” in Kate Middleton – but found Meghan Markle “difficult”, a royal expert has claimed.

    Katie Nicholl – author of the biography Harry And Meghan – told Fabulous Magazine that the late royal would have had conflicting feelings towards her daughters-in-law.

    In tomorrow’s issue of Fabulous, the royal expert claimed Princess Diana would have approved of Kate Middleton.

    Katie said: “She would have been thrilled that William found the perfect match in Kate but it’s hard to know what she would have made of Meghan. 

    “She would have loved the fact that Harry married a bi-racial, divorced Hollywood actress. This was Harry shaking things up, whether that was or wasn’t what he set out to do.”

    PRINCESS DIANA WOULD BE 'VERY UNCOMFORTABLE' WITH OPRAH INTERVIEW

    Simone Simmons, a pal and confidante of the late princess, said Diana thought the chat show host was "only after sensationalism" and showed a "lack of respect" to her interview subjects.

    The fierce revelation comes just months after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry let loose on the Royal Family in their explosive chat with Oprah in March.

    Harry claimed his dad and brother were "trapped" in the Royal Firm, while Meghan revealed she had had suicidal thoughts during her time as a working royal.

    The bombshell interview was a result of Meghan and Harry's friendship with Oprah – who Diana, it seems, did not feel as comfortable to be around.

    In an updated version of the book Battle of Brothers, Simone Simmons tells author Robert Lacey: “Diana felt very uncomfortable with Oprah."

    HARRY AND WILLIAM WERE 'AT EACH OTHER'S THROATS' AS SOON AS PRESS EXITED PHILIP'S FUNERAL

    Prince William and Prince Harry were "at each other's throats" at Prince Philip's funeral the second camera's turned away, according to new bombshell claims.

    Robert Lacey – the author of tell-all book Battle of Brothers, which looks into the feud between the pair – says a row broke out as soon as they stepped inside Windsor Castle.

    It was understood Charles had sent away the funeral cars to allow his sons the chance to talk face-to-face for the first time since Harry's move to LA.

    But Mr Lacey said efforts to encourage the men to make their peace were to no avail – and friends "have been despairing over the searing animosity – the sheer uncompromising, bloody-minded anger – between the two."

    Writing for the Daily Mail, the author said the brothers' friends hoped the funeral could be "the chance for some healing to develop".
