Prince Harry didn’t answer
During his interview with Today, Prince Harry talked about the ‘special relationship’ he has with the Queen and that ‘we talk about things she can’t talk about with anyone else’.
Although, when US journalist Hoda Kotb asked if he would attend his grandmother's Jubilee celebration next month, Prince Harry answered:
I don't know if I'll come. There are lots of issues with security and everything else.
That's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to do everything to make sure my kids can meet her.
Prince Harry and Meghan have been invited
Despite not knowing if he’ll attend his grandmother’s Jubilee celebration in June, he and his wife have been invited to stand on the balcony at Buckingham Palace. However, if they decided to come, they will not be given a ‘formal role’ in the celebrations.
If Prince Harry and Meghan decided to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee in London, they will appear at the family events such as the traditional balcony appearance and a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral.
However, as the couple is no longer Senior Royals, they will not be allowed to participate in Trooping the Colour or have central roles during the Bank Holiday weekend according to The Telegraph.
