Latest sign King Charles refuses to mend bond with Prince Harry

For the second year in a row, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were not invited to the Trooping the Colour ceremony.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not take part in the military procession this year, as they did in 2023 after the coronation of King Charles III. People Magazine has confirmed.

Trooping the Colour is an annual parade that has marked the official birthday celebration of the reigning monarch for more than 260 years.

The annual event is scheduled to take place on June 15th.

Although Harry and Meghan gave up their roles as senior members of the royal family in 2020, Queen Elizabeth II still allowed the couple to make a discreet appearance at the 2022 Trooping the Colour parade.

The couple were photographed chatting in the Major General’s office at Buckingham Palace during the launch of the Queen’s four-day Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

However, Harry and Meghan were conspicuously missing from the balcony photos at Buckingham Palace this year. Instead, the Queen was joined by the then Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children.

Sources told The Post at the time that royal courtiers were reportedly concerned that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would upstage the monarch if they attended the photocall.

Since Charles took over his mother’s royal duties following her death in September 2022, he has apparently taken an even more staunch stance against Harry and Meghan’s interference in royal affairs.

His hard line began when he decided not to invite the Sussexes to his first Trooping the Colour, which took place last year, and then had the couple removed from the royal family website a few months later.

Elsewhere, a royal expert has claimed it is unlikely that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be stripped of their titles.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, told The Royal Beat that King Charles III is unlikely to strip Meghan and Prince Harry of their royal titles, even though they stepped down from royal duties in 2020.

“I don’t think anything will happen to the titles because if they lose their titles, Harry is still a prince of the blood and Meghan is not the Duchess of Sussex, [would] “Be Princess Henry,” Seward said, according to The Mirror.

She further said that the public might perceive it as an “unfriendly” move by the palace if it stripped the two of their titles.

“That would really be [confuse the Americans]”, she added. “I think [it’s] it’s probably best to just leave it because it looks unfriendly, it looks unnecessary.”
