The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee next year, with a four-day bank holiday weekend planned in June to mark the momentous occasion. Prince Harry plans to return to the UK to celebrate the milestone with his family and his wife Meghan Markle could join him for the trip. But the visit could prove an awkward encounter for the Royal Family, after the couple’s recent string of bombshell claims.
One insider told the Sun the reunion could cause a “fresh headache” for the Royal Family.
They said: “Harry wants to be there.
“It is already causing a headache and is going to be very awkward.
“Where will they be positioned if they turn up? What events can they attend?
“Will we put them on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the flypast?”
The momentous occasion will be marked with a RAF fly-past, watched by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family from the Buckingham Palace balcony.
In the past, Meghan and Harry have been among the royals stood on the balcony to watch the planes soar through the air.
But as the couple has stepped down as senior royals, it is not known whether they will be invited to stand alongside other members of the Firm – or take part in any of the other expected celebrations.
