Meghan and Harry planning alternative US Jubilee celebrations, expert claims

A royal commentator has suggested that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may be planning for alternative celebrations to mark the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations next summer, in case they don't join the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace.

Queen Elizabeth will reach 70 years on the throne next June and preparation for festivities to mark the occasion are underway, with events planned for "biggest event the UK has ever seen" over an extended bank holiday weekend.

But since their reported falling out with members of the Firm since moving across to the US last year, there has supposedly been uncertainty over whether Harry and Meghan will be in attendance.

The pair have not returned to the UK together since the birth of their daughter Lilibet and it is also unclear whether they will celebrate Christmas with the likes of Prince William and Kate Middleton in the United Kingdom.

Now, on his YouTube channel, royal commentator Neil Sean has claimed that the Sussexes are already considering what they might do if they do not return to the UK to mark the Queen’s Jubilee.

“According to a very good source, very close to Harry and Meghan, it looks like Harry and Meghan could be planning the alternative Platinum Jubilee celebrations,” he claimed.

“A lot of people over in New York and particularly in the United States will be celebrating with us on that special weekend.

“But Harry and Meghan, according to that close source, think they could do something themselves – perhaps throw a huge gala party, some big sort of concert event, all raising money for the charitable causes associated with not just Harry and Meghan, but some of the causes associated with her gracious Majesty the Queen."

Neil did acknowledge that such a decision might not receive an overwhelmingly positive response from royal fans, noting: “A lot of people may scoff at this, but Prince Harry is within his right to celebrate his grandmother being on the throne for so long.

“Moving forward for Harry and Meghan, it does appear that whatever they do, it always seems to have a tinge of badness, simply because they’re ex-royals, they’re not senior members of the British Royal Family anymore.”

Looking to the near future, and with winter approaching in the UK, royal commentators have been speculating over how Meghan and Harry will spend their first Christmas with their daughter Lilibet.

And after a reportedly frictional year for the royal institution, Neil has claimed that the Queen will largely avoid discussing “Royal Family troubles” during her traditional holiday speech.
