“BREAKING: Queen bans Harry, Meghan & Andrew from Buckingham Palace balcony for Trooping of Colour ceremony during Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Only working royals performing duties for her will attend. Massive snub to the renegade Sussexes and her shamed son. Good decision,” he wrote.

“The Queen has confirmed Harry and Meghan will not stand at the balcony during Jubilee events. Quite right. It would not be fair on other members of the Royal family who carry out their duties with such unstinting devotion. Let them have their ‘privacy’,” they wrote.

Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their duties as senior royals in 2020.

And Prince Andrew was revoked from his working position as a royal within the family this year amid the allegations surrounding the s*xual assault of Virginia Giuffre, to who he paid a financial settlement in March 2022.

“After careful consideration, the Queen has decided this year’s traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd 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 palace spokesperson said, as per Metro.

These members include; the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

“In addition, the Cambridge and Wessex children are also expected to appear as is Sir Tim Laurence, who the Queen is happy to attend as a frequent attendee and support for Princess Royal on official engagements,” the spokesperson continued.

So, it looks like the royal celebration is going to look quite different this year.

And this comes as a source said that Prince Harry and Megan Markle “are much-loved members of the family and they would be invited to the family event.”
