According to royal aides, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would also be invited to Trooping the Colour parade, reported The Independent. If the military parade, scheduled for June 12, is held, it would mark the first public reunion for the royal family since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their royal roles.
Prince Harry and Meghan’s last public appearance as members of the royal family was on March 9, 2020, at the Westminster Abbey Commonwealth Service.
“The current plan is for the Queen’s birthday parade to go ahead in London as normal, with the acceptance that it may need to be adapted or scaled back depending on what guidelines are in force at the time. But the aspiration and the ultimate desire is to make it happen,” the royal aide was quoted as saying.
However, no confirmation has been received from the Duke and Duchess yet on whether or not they would be attending the royal event in June.
