Recently, it has been said again and again that Princes Harry and William are trying to relax their tense relationship. But during the Queen's platinum jubilee there seems to be little opportunity for that. In any case, there is apparently no private meeting between the two on the program.
For the Queen's platinum anniversary, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are finally back in the UK. After all this time, that would actually be the right opportunity to exchange a few words privately with Harry's brother and his wife, Prince William and Duchess Kate. But nothing will come of it. At least that's what an unnamed palace insider told the New York Post.
Harry is said to have continued to have a frosty relationship with his older brother after stepping down from royal leadership. "At the moment it doesn't look like Harry and Meghan and William and Kate will be getting together as a foursome during the anniversary celebrations," the insider said. "In any case, there's nothing in the calendar at the moment."
However, that would also mean that William and Kate's three children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, their cousin Archie, 3, and cousin Lilibet, who celebrated their first birthday on Saturday in Britain celebrates, will not see. As previously reported, William and Kate will be more than 200km away in Wales when Lilibet celebrates with the Queen at Windsor Castle on Saturday. It is not yet known if a historical photo of the Queen and her great-granddaughter will be released after their meeting.
The former "Fab Four" will officially meet for the first time in more than two years this Friday at the thanksgiving service for Queen Elizabeth II at St. Paul's Cathedral. Their last appearance together was in March 2020 at the Commonwealth Day service at London's Westminster Abbey. A few days later, Harry and Meghan left Great Britain with their son Archie. Lilibet was later born in the USA.
On Thursday, Harry and Meghan watched the Trooping the Color ceremony in honor of the Queen from the Major General's office in central London. They beamed as they were reunited with their family. Snapshots show them chatting to children from the royal family. However, William and Kate did not see her.
