Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, are reportedly keeping their diaries “free” for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June. Royal expert Neil Sean has claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are most likely set to be invited to “some kind of banquet”. He went to claim that the couple may “distract” from the monarch.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean said: “I’m sure that her gracious Majesty the Queen would have enough people helping to serve the teas and possibly clearing up at Windsor Great park who knows and you can only imagine what on earth they could possibly offer.
“I don’t mean that in a cruel way but you know it’s going to be very difficult for Her Majesty the Queen and of course, His Royal Highness Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
“What could they offer?
“That would take away a lot of focus away from the Queen.

“What I’m suspecting is there will be some kind of banquet, perhaps low-key, that they possibly could get invited to.
“What we do know however is their diaries are remaining free.”
It comes ad the Queen’s royal aides have adopted a new strategy to stop royal fans “panicking” over the monarch’s health after she was advised to rest.
The Queen has carried out multiple virtual audiences – the latest in a run of light official duties.
“I think they’re worried about a repeat of that.”
Royal expert Angela Levin noted that the Queen was standing in her latest pictures.
She added: “She stood up to show that she’s not so unwell that she has to sit.
“That is saying something too.”
