Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are trying to mend their relationship with the royal family. However, despite their visit to the Queen last month, their relationship with the royals hasn't completely healed yet.
Prince Harry Still At Odds With Royal Family, Memoir Allegedly Another Source Of Concern
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had not visited the U.K. together for over two years. However, they paid Queen Elizabeth II a visit before they flew to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games in April. But Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's visit did not completely ease the rift between them and the members of the firm.
"I’d say the rift very definitely hasn’t been healed," royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Us Weekly. "That, I’m afraid, is quite clear."
Fitzwilliams said the royals are in an "extraordinary situation." The Sussexes and the royal family have a rocky relationship, and there are a lot of things that need to be done. Also, Prince Harry's upcoming memoir could be another source of problem between the two parties.
"It will again be a source of very, very substantial discord," the royal expert added. "Whatever he writes, if it’s published this year, it’s going to cause problems."
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Effort To Reconnect With The Royal Family
Aside from an unannounced visit last month when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met the Queen and Prince Charles, the Sussexes agreed to return to the United Kingdom for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebration next week.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also announced that they would bring their two kids — son Archie, 3, and 11-month-old daughter Lilibet.
Bringing their kids to the U.K. will be a sweet treat to the royal family. It's been over two years since they saw Archie in person. Also, they haven't met the Sussexes' daughter in person yet.
"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," the Sussexes' spokesperson told Harper's Bazaar.
However, the Sussexes and their kids will not be able to join the Queen on the balcony during the Trooping the Colour. The 96-year-old monarch decided to limit the royals who would join her on the balcony to those who are still working for the monarchy.
"After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that this year's traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd of June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen," a Buckingham Palace spokesman said in a statement, People reported.
