Prince Harry and wife Meghan want to be at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, causing a ‘fresh headache’ according to a Royal insider.

The Queen will celebrate 70 years since her coronation in June 2022, and today the Palace announced a four-day bank holiday weekend to celebrate the occasion.

Despite Harry and Meghan stepping away from official royal duties, they have previously indicated that they would like to return to the fold for special family occasions, such as the Platinum Jubilee.

However, that may prove to be a challenge for organisers as they try to figure out how and where to place them during the celebrations.

An insider told The Sun: “Harry wants to be there. It is already causing a headache and is going to be very awkward. Where will they be positioned if they turn up? What events can they attend? Will we put them on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the flypast?”

The source continued to worry about the publicity of the controversial duo’s return to the Palace, adding: “This is a celebration for the Queen’s 70 years of service to the nation and should not be overshadowed. There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan.”

Harry wanted to return to the UK on July 1 for the unveiling of his mother’s statute for her 60 birthday, but these plans are in question as Meghan is heavily pregnant with their daughter.

The Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers appeared on ITV’s Lorraine yesterday to discuss the possibility of Harry returning for Princess Diana’s statue unveiling.

He said: “The things I'm being told is they still really want to be there, both of them. Certainly, William and Kate will be there. But whether Harry can fly over there because the baby is imminently due this summer, it will certainly be in the next couple of weeks.”

Russell Myers continued: “It's been talked about for so many months now, this deteriorating relationship. And the issue is that Harry is expecting a second child, a baby girl on the way, and whether they will attend together or whether they will make separate speeches.”

The Kensington Palace statue honouring the late Princess Diana has been a long time in the making, with brothers Harry and William working on the plans since 2017.
