Next June, Elizabeth II will celebrate her 70th birthday on the throne of England. For the occasion, several festivities are planned and the entire royal family should gather in honor of the sovereign. But for the past few months, certain questions have remained unanswered: will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle return to the United Kingdom for the event? Will Prince Andrew be on the balcony during “Trooping The Colour” on Thursday June 2? Elizabeth II has finally decided. In a press release, Buckingham Palace announced this Friday, May 6 that “the traditional balcony appearance for the Salute to the Colors (…) will this year be limited to Her Majesty and members of the Royal Family who carry out official public engagements on behalf of the Queen. Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew will therefore not greet the public.

A future meeting between the queen and Lilibet?
A few hours after this announcement, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to respond through a spokesperson. The latter explained that “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were excited and honored to take part in the Queen’s Jubilee with their children”. Archie, who is celebrating his 3rd birthday on May 6, and Lilibet will therefore be present! A first for the couple’s little girl who, since her birth in June 2021, has not yet met her English family. There is no doubt that Prince Charles, Elisabeth II but also Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children will be delighted to meet Archie’s little sister.
