Harry and Meghan at Jubilee all about ‘repairing House of Windsor brand in US’

The Royal Family has a chance to redeem its reputation in the US by welcoming Prince Harry and Meghan Markle back into the fold during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, according to one royal columnist.

Queen Elizabeth II is the first monarch to be celebrating a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years on the throne, and the historic occasion has seen the Duke and Duchess of Sussex return to the United Kingdom together for the first time since Megxit.

Although they have been demoted to a separate balcony during the Trooping the Colour event – which kicks off proceedings on Thursday, Daily Mail columnist Richard Kay still thinks Harry, Meghan and Lilibet can be of use to the House of Windsor.

In his daily column on the morning of Day One of the Platinum Jubilee, he says: "The significance of this olive branch invitation cannot be exaggerated.

"For it offers the real chance of not just healing the breach between the Sussexes and the royals but also repairing the House of Windsor brand, which, in America at least, has been severely tarnished by the Harry and Meghan falling-out.

"What's more, it could ensure that the couple, who cannot be certain of the reaction they will receive from the public during the four days of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, are met with warmth rather than stony indifference."

Other royal experts agree the Jubilee may be crucial for the Sussex's ongoing relationship with the palace.

Speaking exclusively to The Star, royal expert Kinsey Schofield, founder of theTo Di For Dailyand To Di For Daily podcast, believes that Harry and Meghan’s attendance is a big step in helping their relationship with William and Kate.

She said: “It is the first step toward real healing. This is only the second time (that we know) Meghan has returned to the UK and will likely be face to face with Prince William and Catherine for the first time since Megxit.

"The Royal Family might be in a position to sit back and relax and not worry about the Sussexes across the pond sending PR grenades in their direction if all goes well. I think that sense of peace would be of great significance to the Queen.”
