In a few days, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will travel to the UK with their two children to attend the Jubilee celebrations. However, Archie and Lilibet are denied a special event.

The arrival of Prince Harry, 37, and Duchess Meghan, 40, in Great Britain is awaited with great excitement. For the first time, the couple is traveling with their two children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 11 months, to the Duke of Sussex’s homeland, where Queen Elizabeth, 96, and her great-granddaughter will meet for the first time.

On Archie’s third birthday, May 6, 2022, the Sussexes announced their excitement for the four-day celebration in London. “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted and honored to be taking their children to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations,” they said in a statement.

The anniversary weekend begins with the “Trooping the Color” parade, which takes place annually on the occasion of the monarch’s birthday. And again this year, the Royals will wave to onlookers from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

The Sussexes, however, will be denied that honor this year. As the Queen explained a few weeks ago, only working members of the royal family will be at her side on the palace balcony. “After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that the traditional Trooping the Color balcony appearance on Thursday 2 June will be restricted to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family currently carrying out official public duties on the Queen’s behalf,” said the official statement.

So, contrary to all the hopes of the fans, the children of Harry and Meghan will not celebrate their debut on the castle balcony. Her cousin Prince Louis, 4, on the other hand, was allowed to wave to the cheering crowd at the tender age of one. And the two eldest of Prince William, 39, and Duchess Catherine, 40, have been here several times with their relatives.

Although Lilibet celebrates her first birthday on her great-grandmother’s platinum anniversary, she does not receive this honor. And the now three-year-old Archie has never been seen on the balcony. In 2019 he did not participate as he was only a few weeks old. The following year, his parents emigrated to the United States as part of their retirement as senior royals, and the celebrations in London had to be held on a smaller scale due to the coronavirus.
