Fears Meghan and Harry will cheat at Platinum Jubilee

When Meghan and Harry headed to the UK, there were fears of chaos from the moment they landed.

Rebels are what makes royal history interesting: otherwise they’re just a bunch of retarded idiots with a bad habit of marrying cousins ​​and occasionally trying to invade France.

The modern British royal family is no different, largely thanks to Harry and Meghan, Duke and Duchess of Sussex. (Or, as I like it, Sussex’s disengagement.)

Over the next few days, the traitor duo will travel to London for their first official return since dropping the royal towel in 2020, and one question no one can answer about the trip: Sousse Can the Coxs survive the four-day Platinum Jubilee Event without hooligans?

That’s the unknown that Buckingham Palace aides fear, according to a new report from the Financial Times. This telegraphfears dropping a “Sussex bomb” during the Jubilee, while “courts have been doing everything they can to eliminate any potential flashpoints”.

(Anyone else imagine the courtiers are now walking around the palace, taking down the artwork in question? Let’s never forget William and Kate, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Happy to leave a picture called black page When the President and First Ladies Barack and Michelle Obama came to dinner, they were on the walls of their Kensington Palace apartment. )

Although Jubilee long weekend It’s packed with official events, including the first “Military Parade” since 2019, the Platinum Jubilee Concert at the Palace, as well as the Platinum Gala for 5,000 people and a surprising number of puppets – all entirely at the Palace Under the control of Mandarin – what Harry and Meghan might do outside of this timetable will cause panic.

This telegraph‘s Camilla Tominey, who broke the news that Harry was dating Suit Back in 2016, The Star reported that “power seems to have an impact on any [the Sussexes] The ‘unofficial’ program”, and “their habit of not appearing in public … naturally attracted the attention of the ‘circus’, their every move. “

Just last week, Meghan managed to cause a small uproar. A surprise appearance in Uwald, Texas Last week, 19 schoolchildren and two teachers were brutally murdered by a lone gunman.

(Even in her earliest royal days, the Duchess has shown a tendency to deviate from the script, such as in Bristol in early 2019, when she decided to write Ostensibly empowering sex workers with information about bananas.)

When it comes to the Sussex couple’s UK excursion, the only confirmed detail is that they will be staying at Frogmore Cottage, their five-bedroom home in Windsor that until recently housed Princess Eugenie and Her husband Jack Brooksbank, Harry and Meghan will attend a Thanksgiving service for the Queen at St Paul’s Church on Friday. (It was revealed this week that Eugenie and Jack will be moving out of Frogmore, where they will split their time between a coastal town in Portugal and the Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace, where Brooksbank will be for luxury real estate development.)

There is only one verified outing on the books, which gives the couple enough time to show up at any number of UK schools, childcare centres or dog rescues to remind everyone how much they care about them.

The problem is that no one seems to really know what they plan to do during their short trip to the UK.in another telegraph Over the weekend, the paper’s royal correspondent revealed that the Sussexes “are believed to have been in touch with the royal family only to discuss Jubilee logistical arrangements, while royal aides are keeping their distance from their wider plans”.

When asked about the possibility of “the couple only going on official events”, a source told the paper: “We’ll see.”

However, despite this, the same report also suggests that the former serving royals are planning to maintain their best behaviour and “intend to limit themselves to public events during the jubilee, spending time privately with their families, but not elsewhere. Unannounced visit”.

What you have to ask yourself here is what does Harry and Meghan need to get off this trip to the UK? They may have a large estate with 16 toilets and a lot of business deals going on which would make moager Kris Jenner envious of the dollar but looking at the press release many of their toilets and things are starting to look less golden .

For nearly two years, they Nothing published for Netflix, although the streaming giant has signed deals worth up to $140 million with the two. Earlier this month, one of their only two projects announced was axed, and last week it was reported that they are now working on a documentary dubbed “At Home.”

Hour after hour watching Harry and Meghan care about the capital ‘c’ is hardly the same as their initial promise of “influential content that unlocks the action”.

Likewise, they may reportedly have signed a $35 million Spotify deal in 2020, but so far they’ve only released an hour and a half of podcasts that include a grab bag from their famous pal, along with Meghan A trailer for the upcoming series. prototype Encountered a collective “baa”.

Nor have they really made any meaningful progress to establish themselves as humanitarians, thought leaders or Meghan’s proto-political powerhouse.

In short, aside from confusing the Sussexes with designer chicken coops, and the promise of a lot of work, the Big Meck Brexit experiment has so far not really paid off for the Sussexes to start.

Two years after arriving in California, their star megawatt numbers had dimmed, and they had become another part of America’s celebrity fabric, hardly the glittering globe-trotting philanthropist ideal that many (myself included) thought they would be.

They now need to free themselves from the PR slump, with a timely injection of royal stardust and a chance to remind the world that they’re not just Kardashian-esque TV stuff.

With the eyes of the world about to land on London and an army of international media currently setting up shop down the road from the palace, will the Duke and Duchess let the opportunity come back into focus, if only briefly slip past them?

Based on past forms, such as their October 2019 documentary about their visit to southern Africa, where they talked about the hardships of royal life, and Harry’s recent comments about wanting to make sure the Queen is “protected”, they have a knack Otherwise ticket booing, smooth sailing moments, and refocusing the focus directly on yourself.

Given that their 3-year-old child Archie and baby Lilibet will also be traveling with them, the possibilities for how that might play out during the Jubilee go beyond a possible surprise school visit.

Archie hadn’t seen the British family when she was about six months old, and Lili had never set foot on British soil, and the Queen is expected to spend time with the children.

Given that Harry and Meghan have a proven track record of publicizing private family dealings (oh, hey, Oprah!) we could see them, say, post a picture of Her Majesty and her namesake little Lily or some other Touching photos? Week?

After everything we’ve seen over the past few years, nothing is real right now.

Just in case anyone is concerned that things are too easy, and Netflix.While the streaming giant has yet to apply for media accreditation for the Jubilee’s public event, “the prospect of a Netflix crew also making an appearance is said to be alarming,” according to telegraph.

Where would Frogmore fall, even if the palace was off limits? Who will ultimately decide whether prying lenses are allowed to break through the designer walls of a Sussex home? (Monday night, This sun The pair have reportedly renewed their lease on the property. )

If the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do decide to stage some kind of high-profile coup this week, it will be a gamble. Not only would the British press and the public have a stroke, but the Queen is still widely respected and loved in America.

Doing something to detract from her grand celebration could be bad for the American audience, which the Sussexes need to stream, listen to and buy their upcoming content offerings.

Taking this roguelike path will also eliminate any tinkering with the home bridge that may be going on behind the scenes. (all weekend This Mirror Reports say William and Harry have been timing each other via FaceTime to “reunite” ahead of the jubilee. )

For the time being it’s a waiting game, and for Palace? It’s probably not a bad idea to start closing the hatches.
