The royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are planning to visit the United Kingdom for charitable purposes. Following the news, viewers have been giving their opinions on the couple’s rationale for coming back. The following are comments made by internet users who are either glad or unhappy by the news.
Throughout the course of the last several months, many members of the Royal Family have been in the news for a variety of reasons. During the month of June 2022, Queen Elizabeth was the center of attention as she celebrated the completion of her 70th year as the monarch of the United Kingdom.
The Platinum Jubilee Celebrations were held over the course of four days, and a large number of members of the Royal Family attended, including Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle.
Despite their efforts to maintain an extremely low profile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made headlines when they were seen attending the National Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral. The service was held in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Many people on the internet had high hopes that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would join the Queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace the next day for the conclusion of the Trooping the Colour ceremony.
Unfortuitously, the results of their expectations did not live up to their expectations. There were only eight members of the Royal Family who were granted the honour of appearing on the balcony with Queen Elizabeth, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not among them.
In a statement that was issued by Buckingham Palace, it was revealed that the Queen had only allowed working royals to join her on her trip. On the other hand, it was subsequently stated that a source disclosed that Queen Elizabeth was not involved in the decision to restrict access to the Buckingham Palace balcony to just serving members of the royal family.
The insider claims that Prince Charles and Prince William were the only ones responsible for Harry and Markle being prevented from making an appearance on the balcony. A source close to the situation revealed (to Marie Claire):
“They believe that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have brought nothing but upheaval onto the Royal Family ever since they moved to the United States with their never-ending stream of tell-alls and interviews, which cast aspersions on the Royal Family.”
In addition, the source said that Charles and William believed it was dishonest of Harry and Meghan to smile and wave at the audience while acting as if everything was OK.
QUEEN ELIZABETH AND HARRY’S RELATIONSHIP
Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave their explosive interview to Oprah Winfrey and made their huge move to the United States, the duo, notably Harry, has stayed distant from many members of the royal family. Markle and Harry have also moved to the United States.
On the other hand, Queen Elizabeth is conspicuously absent from the list. Despite all that has happened between Harry and the Royal Family, he has managed to keep his connection with his grandmother in excellent standing.
Harry has said on several times how close the two of them are to one another and how strong their friendship is. It was revealed that he and Queen Elizabeth share what he describes as a “very unique bond” during one of the interviews that he gave. Harry also said that they talk about matters that the king cannot discuss with anybody else and that these talks are private.
Many people have experienced the warm bond that exists between the Queen and her grandson, so it would seem that the Duke’s assertions are real. A friend of Harry’s previously shared the information that Her Majesty loves the Duke and would always grant any of his wishes if she had the chance.
Just recently, Queen Elizabeth’s fondness for Prince Harry was brought back into the spotlight when it was revealed that she had extended an invitation to him and his family to spend the summer with her in Balmoral.
Staff members at the Scottish estate were reportedly informed by a source inside the residence that they should be prepared for the arrival of the whole list of royals, which includes Harry, Markle, and their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
When the news leaked that the monarch’s usual welcome to Balmoral castle would not take place owing to health concerns, many people were disappointed since they had been anticipating yet another Royal Family event.
During the yearly event that was supposed to take place in Scotland on August 9, 2022, Queen Elizabeth was supposed to meet and welcome members of the general public at the entrance to the castle.
In addition to that, her majesty would have also conducted an inspection of a Guard of Honor provided by the Balaklava Company of the 5th Batallion of The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
Unfortuitously, however, the ceremony was changed to a more intimate private gathering, which took place behind the walls of the castle and was not open to the sight of the media or the general public.
THE SUSSEX’S TRIP TO THE UK AND THE REACTIONS OF THEIR FANS
Following the announcement made by a spokeswoman on August 15, 2022, that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be traveling to the United Kingdom during the first week of September 2022, tongues were set to wagging in anticipation of their arrival. It is essential to take notice that this will be Harry and Markle’s second visit in 2022, all owing to the work that they do for charity organizations.
A spokesman for the couple has said that they would be attending the One Young World 2022 Manchester Summit on September 5 when they are over in the United Kingdom. The next day after that, Harry and Markle will go to Germany in order to participate in the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023 One Year to Go.
After that, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will fly back to the United Kingdom in time to attend the WellChild Awards 2022 on September 8 of that year.
After the news broke, internet users immediately took to various social media platforms to voice their opinions about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming trip.
Some people are under the impression that the pair is not coming to volunteer their time. According to the assertions of one user of Twitter:
“I believe that it is all about public relations and, therefore, money. They are required to link themselves to royals for Netflix, public relations, and image purposes. Nobody wants them to be here; the only thing they provide is an air of narcissism and a sense of false security.”
Another user commented on Twitter, pointing out that Harry and Markle were going to watch some film on Netflix. This user contributed:
“They do not speak for us, our nation, or the Monarchy in any way. Whether they are going to beg for money from the Royal Family or not, these two people are despicable. In any case, you are not invited.”
Additionally, a third wrote:
“They are not going for that purpose at all; the true reason is that they want to promote his book. The only thing that is “near to their hearts” is the amount of money in their bank accounts.”
On the other side, numerous users of the platform have shown their approval and excitement for Harry and Markle’s visit by expressing support and goodwill towards them. One user on Twitter wrote the following:
“I am grateful for the news of the Sussexes. I just cannot wait to see the award. Are you going to webcast it because there are going to be a lot of people all around the globe who are interested in seeing it?”
An further commenter said, “So excited…looking forward to watching them do what they do best, serve with all their hearts, and influence the lives of people.”
In addition, a third responder wrote:
It should come as no surprise that there has been a range of reactions to the news that Harry and Markle will be visiting soon. In the end, all that can be done by the rest of the world is wait and watch what happens during their stay.
