Harry and Meghan “uninvited” from a party at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s funeral

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were reportedly not invited to the grand state party held at Buckingham Palace on the eve of the Queen’s funeral.

Prince Harry and Meghan reportedly received an invitation to the event earlier this week.

However, the Sussexes are currently not expected to join the ranks of world leaders, foreign dignitaries and royalty after some palace officials have voiced concerns arguing that the event should be limited to working members of the royal family. Daily Telegraph reported.

According to the report, sources close to the couple had apparently been confused by the confusion, while palace advisers continued to “insist they had not been invited.”

The state party – the night before the queen’s funeral – is held on Sunday by King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla.

Over 500 world leaders, diplomats and international royalty will be attending the VIP party, and will also be welcomed by William and Kate, the new Prince and Princess of Wales.

US and French presidents Joe Biden and Emmanuel Macron will be among the participants of the event. The two will arrive in Britain on the eve of the Queen’s funeral on Monday.

This is not the first time confusion has arisen over the responsibilities of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, whose relations with the wider royal family were strained by the decision to resign from their positions when the working royal family moved to California.

There have been reports of similar mixed news regarding Prince Harry’s right to wear a military uniform as he followed the Queen’s coffin in a procession.

The Duke of Sussex, who served 10 years in the British Army, wore military medals strapped to his morning suit as he walked in procession alongside his father, king, brother, Prince of Wales and other royalty.

Harry was also forbidden to salute the coffin like his brother and father, and instead just bowed his head.

But on Friday it was revealed that the king had given Harry permission to wear a military uniform on the royal vigil with his cousins ​​at the queen’s coffin on the evening of Saturday, September 17.
