Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are heading to England for the Queen’s Jubilee, and apparently they’re expected to attend a massive event called the Service of Thanksgiving, which sadly does not involve a giant turkey. But it does involve literally every member of the royal family hanging out together, and The Telegraph reports that the Sussexes haven’t been around this many royals since their literal wedding.
According to The Telegraph, all of the Queen’s relatives will gather to celebrate her 75 year reign at St Paul’s Cathedral. We’re talking cousins, kids, grandchildren—literally everyone. Though the really little kids won’t be there, so if you’re hoping for a glimpse of Meghan and Harry’s son, Archie, and their daughter, Lilibet, you might be disappointed.
The service is going down on Friday, June 3, but it’s just one of mannnny royal events over the four day weekend. Note: Meghan and Harry aren’t expected to appear on the balcony for Trooping the Colour on Thursday (another big royal event), because— per the BBC—the Queen decided that only “working royals” and their children would be in attendance.
In other words, Kate Middleton and Prince William + their kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis will be there, and the Sussexes sadly won’t. That said, Meghan and Harry could show up on the royal balcony during Sunday’s Platinum Pageant when the royals gather to watch a £15 million parade (which includes a performance from Ed Sheeran).
According to Cosmopolitan UK, the Buckingham Palace balcony will have the best view of the parade and is the most likely spot for the royals to gather and watch. Anyway, well see what happens! Truly never expected this much drama around a literal balcony, but here we are!
