A report in British media this week indicated that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are among the dignitaries attending the reception, but not royals from outside of the United Kingdom.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were not invited to the pre-funeral reception of Queen Elizabeth II, according to a report by The Telegraph. King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla had previously invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to the grand event, which takes place at Buckingham palace and is being hosted by King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla.

Despite this, it appears that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been informed that only working British royals are allowed to attend The Queen’s pre-funeral reception. Royal aides have repeatedly stated that Harry and Meghan will not be attending the event, as per the publication, it remains unclear why the couple was ever invited to the event. Furthermore, a number of sources have claimed that Harry and Meghan appeared confused by the apparent mixup. The US President Joe Biden and the French President Emmanuel Macron, who will also attend The Queen’s funeral on September 19, will attend the grand event honoring Queen Elizabeth.

At the same time, this isn’t the only scandal concerning the Sussexes and their involvement in Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. Prince Harry initially was not permitted to wear his military uniform for the funeral events of his beloved grandmother, which caused a major public uproar since ex-royal Prince Andrew, who has been accused of sexual assault, was allowed to do the same. Eventually, the Duke of Sussex was also granted special permission by his father, King Charles III, to wear his military uniform for Queen Elizabeth II’s vigil.

At Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin procession, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex held hands, which is said to be a breach of royal protocol. However, as discussed above, they are no longer working royals. “Harry and Meghan are grieving relatives and are under no obligation to follow royal protocol,” body language expert Inbaal Honigman told The Daily Express in defense of Harry and Meghan.
