It’s great news that you’re coming to the UK to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen Platinum Jubilee.
However, I believe you are all aware that, Historic Bank Holiday Celebrations This Week All in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s extraordinary reign.
And, IMHO, it has nothing to do with the two of you.
Your daughter will be celebrating her first birthday on Saturday 4th June and she is the only one of her 12 great-grandchildren whom Her Majesty has yet to meet.
Historic photos of the moment she met the Queen – in other words, Lilibet met Lilibet – will be a timeless and treasured photograph of the Royal Archives in Windsor.
When you see your grandmother again, Prince Harry, you’ll find— despite your worries – Her Majesty is well protected and in safe hands.
I’m sure she appreciates the concerns you expressed on American TV after your last private meeting, when you fly around to visit her On the way to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.
This time, I hope you can leave your Netflix The behind-the-scenes crew takes the Queen centre stage during the four-day national celebration to mark her unique 70-year reign.
We look forward to seeing you and the rest of the Royal Family at the Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday.
Then for the rest of the Bank Holidays, join in the fun of this remarkable celebration – but remember, it’s not about you, it’s about Queen Elizabeth II. It must be hard to accept that none of you will be flying over 70 military aircraft on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on Thursday.
But as you know, the monarch has decided to show up only to serving royals.
It was a decision I am sure you will understand and respect as you have decided to leave this country and give up your royal duties. Meghan, I know you worked hard for two years to be a working member of the royal family, but I realize it’s not for you.
You did try, and now you’ve got the life you want, it’s definitely your right.
But your way – give your version of events Controversial Oprah Winfrey Interview – Polarizing the country.
You and Harry seem to be separated by generations. Millions of young people see you as a victim who needs to be heard.
Although those of us older people think you are doing it wrong.
Remember, this platinum jubilee is about the Queen – and no one else.
The British people will be out by millions – even in these trying times – to honour a 96-year-old woman who has provided a life of service and responsibility to our country. A woman is celebrating a milestone in our lifetimes — not even Archie’s.
A woman who has never let us down.
Please don’t let Her Majesty down, Harry and Meghan, and this time, please take a back seat. Let the true Jubilee star shine.
Warmest regards, Arthur
