Harry and Meghan will make Jubilee ‘the Sussex show’ – expert

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be a "distraction" at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II, a royal expert has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently visited the Queen in a surprise return to the UK, Meghan Markle's first since leaving The Firm in 2020, and prompted suggestions that the pair could attend the celebration.

The 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth is set to be celebrated, but critics have said the attendance of Harry and Meghan would cause a "media frenzy" and distract from celebrations.

One royal expert has claimed the couple would be a distracting addition with their corporate, tell-all deals with Netflix and Penguin Random House.

One expert, Camilla Tominey, said: "A celebration of the Queen's 70 years on the throne should not be the Harry and Meghan show."

Another expert, military historian Christopher Joll, agreed with Tominey, saying: "It should not be the Sussex show. They will inevitably be a distraction if they turn up.

"But that doesn't mean to say they shouldn't turn up. The question is what should they do if they turn up."

The pair of royal experts then questioned whether it was possible for the Duke and Duchess to "keep a low profile on a Buckingham Palace balcony".

The pair continued with Tominey saying: "There'll be lip readers, body language experts, they'll be a media frenzy around the whole thing, won't there?"

Joll agreed, saying: "Absolutely. And then, of course, there is also the elephant in the room that nobody has mentioned thus far.

"That is Harry's memoirs. He has promised a kiss and tell memoir that Penguin Random House have apparently paid him a multi-million pound advance for."

Between the kiss and tell memoir and the exclusive deal the Sussexes have with Netflix, Daily Express reported concerns over the Queen being undermined at her own ceremony.
