In June 2022, Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her 70th year as the British monarch with four days of festivities.
The Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II is one of the most anticipated events of 2022, with fans eager to see the royal family reunited, even if Prince Harry may not be present.
In his Mirror column, journalist Paul Routledge gave his predictions for the coming year. In it, he said that due to rumors about their feud with the British royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may not even fly to the UK to join Her Majesty’s celebrations.
“In June, the country comes to a standstill to celebrate our 96-year-old Queen’s 70 years on the throne. It’s amazing that aged 78, I’ve lived through the governments of 15 prime ministers but I’ve only ever known one monarch. The nation rejoices, but Meghan Markle bans Harry from joining in the fun,” he wrote.
Prince Andrew’s sexual assault case against Virginia Roberts Giuffre, according to Routledge, will cost him money by 2022. In a New York court, she accused him of “rape in the first degree.” She claimed he sexually abused her while she was still a kid, an accusation he has categorically denied.
“The Duke of York is declared bankrupt after failing to pay his lawyer’s bills. He goes to the USA to defend himself and is reconciled with Harry on a chat show,” the political correspondent added.
The predictions of Routledge contrast reports that Prince Harry is looking forward to his grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. He is thought to have indicated an interest in attending the four-day event, which will take place from June 2 to 5. This is thought to be in keeping with his and Meghan Markle’s vow to return to the United Kingdom for family occasions when they left their top posts and went to California.
As per Ibtimes, the presence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations has yet to be confirmed by Buckingham Palace. It’s also unclear whether the monarch will make any public appearances over the next four days.
However, due to her age, she is expected to celebrate it “quite differently.” She would certainly have others represent her at engagements and would not “go to the Commonwealth or do any tours.”
