Royal commentator Jonathan Sacerdoti said he understood why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would want to come back to the UK for the Queen’s Jubilee celebration. He also noted he could understand why they may not want to or why they could not get an invitation. During an interview with Express.co.uk, he highlighted that the royal couple would shift focus away from the Queen.

He noted this was due to their comments on the Royal Family and the manner in which they stepped back from working royal duties.

Mr Sacerdoti said: “I think it would be very difficult for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to return.

“I can understand why they may want to return for the Jubilee celebrations.

“I also understand why the Royal Family may want to invite Meghan and Harry but also why they may not want to invite them.

“Meghan and Harry will absolutely shift the focus away from the intended celebrations of the Queen’s spectacular and lengthy service as monarch.

“That is undesirable for everyone, most notably Meghan and Harry, it should be at least.

The royal expert concluded that it would prove to be a difficult choice on whether to come or not for the pair.

He said: “Them being in the UK, especially without having resolved previous issues will be a distraction.

“I can understand therefore why they may not be here through their choice or the Royal Families.

“With all of these Meghan and Harry stories, not being invited or choosing not to come in itself is a story.

“It also steals focus away from the Queen and this magnificent celebration.

“I could fully understand why Meghan and Harry would not be present.”

The Jubilee celebrations are to mark Her Majesty’s historic 70-year reign, a feat no other British monarch has achieved.

Speculation has grown in recent months about whether Harry and Meghan will attend the celebrations with royal experts making their predictions. 

After moving across the pond, Harry returned to the UK for the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, who died in April.

The Duchess of Sussex and their eldest child, Archie Harrison, however, have not been to the UK since the family relocated to North America in 2020.

The couple’s youngest, daughter Lilibet Diana, was born in California and has yet to meet her British family.
