Prince Harry and Meghan's Expected Roles In Trooping The Colour Revealed

The Queen’s traditional
birthday parade, Trooping the Colour, is the first royal event that will
officially kick off the Platinum Jubilee bank holiday celebrations
and members of the royal family will be out in force.

Among those are Prince
Harry and Meghan Markle, who, despite not securing a place on
the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the flypast, are expected to
take part in the military event.

The most likely scenario is
that the Sussexes will ride in a carriage during the procession that departs
from the palace and travels along the Mall to Horse Guards Parade and back
again.

In 2019, Harry and Meghan
shared a carriage with the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of
Cambridge, while the year before that they were accompanied by one guardsman.

Their children Archie, three,
and Lili, who turns one on Saturday – who they are raising as private
citizens – are too young to ride in the carriage and will most likely watch the
parade from inside Buckingham Palace. In the past, royal children have been
spotted peeking out from behind the curtains to watch the carriages leave and
return.

This year will be slightly
different as the Queen will only be joined on the balcony by working members of
the royal family and their children. As Harry and Meghan quit royal life in
2020, they will not be watching the flypast or waving to crowds from the
balcony.

But the Sussexes could
still have their balcony moment later this week. On Sunday 5 June on the
final day of the bank holiday weekend, the Queen and members of the royal
family could make a final appearance on the balcony as part of the Jubilee
Pageant event that will round off the weekend.

The pageant, which will parade
through the streets of London, is set to be watched by up to a billion people
across the globe, and more than 10,000 people will be involved in the £15
million processions.

Some of the sights set to
feature along the 3km route include Ed Sheeran singing the national anthem,
puppet corgis, a giant 3D wire bust of the Queen, a tribute to seven decades of
fashion, music and culture, and the Gold State Coach which will appear on the
streets of London for the first time in 20 years.

A spokesperson for Harry and
Meghan has previously said: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess
of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
celebrations this June with their children.”
