Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may destabilise Queen at jubilee, expert claims

The presence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee events could "destabilise" the celebration, an expert has claimed.

Resentment between several members of the Royal Family could also be on the cards ahead of the Queen's 70-year celebration, royal expert Camilla Tominey has said.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will receive widespread publicity when they arrive in the UK with their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, who turns one during the Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Palace aides have reportedly said they will do all they can to prevent a Sussex "sideshow" looming over the long-reigning Monarch's celebrations, Tominey claimed.

She explained: "You can include the Sussexes but you don't want there to be some sort of Harry and Meghan sideshow going on when the main event must be the Queen.

"The Palace has a degree of control over Harry and Meghan while they're in the confines of Buckingham Palace and the confines of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations official, but there's nothing to stop them freelancing and doing their own thing while they're in the UK.

"Of course, if they're going to be seen out and about with their children, it's going to generate publicity."

Tominey also claimed that some "resentment" could be aired by other members of the Royal Family for Harry and Meghan, with fears that some could be overshadowed by the return of the Sussexes, Daily Mail reported.

She said: "Equally, there will be other members of the Royal Family who are doing the daily grind who will resent being overshadowed by Harry and Meghan, even if they don't admit it.

"You're not going to want to have the likes of Princess Anne and the Earl and Countess of Wessex, for instance, who, day in day out, plant trees, unveil plaques and go to the opening of royal envelopes, only to have the media focus completely on Harry and Meghan who aren't playing a role at all in the so-called family Firm."

Daily Star has contacted the Sussexes for comment.
