“Kate and William would be foolish not to be suspicious and would be unwise not to be cautious.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are no longer working royals, will not join the Queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for Trooping the Colour. They will, however, attend some of the weekend’s events.
The last time William and Harry made a public appearance together was in July 2021, when they attended the unveiling of a Kensington Palace statue dedicated to their mother, Princess Diana.
After the Oprah Winfrey interview in March of last year, insiders revealed that a ‘furious’ William did not want to attend the event.
Palace sources are also said to be anxious that the attention centred on a Netflix film team following Harry and Meghan as part of their multi-million dollar deal will distract from the Jubilee celebrations.
Aides are reportedly planning to stop the Netflix crew from filming any Jubilee events within the palace.
They don’t want the production team to ‘exploit’ the celebrations, therefore, Netflix cameras will not be allowed at Royal properties including Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.
Yet, the film crew can blend in with the audience and follow the couple while they are in VIP areas at public Jubilee events. During the four days of celebrations, they could join the couple inside other major venues, including St Paul’s Cathedral.
Last week, Harry and Meghan announced their plans to visit the UK in June with their two children.
A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the news that they would be attending, saying, “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children.”
