Harry and Meghan lack the qualities that the late Queen embodied, and the fact that King Charles did not invite them to the event is seen as a positive outcome by some, including the speaker. Considering the past events, it is assumed that Harry and Meghan would have declined the invitation anyway. Instead, they claim they will commemorate the Queen's passing in their own way, which the speaker sarcastically describes as Harry fanning Meghan while she discusses white privilege and colonialism, possibly with press involvement despite claiming to prioritize privacy. Overall, the situation is considered a significant birthday present for Meghan Markle.
According to a source reported by The Sun, there has been no communication or invitation extended to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex regarding the event. The source mentioned that if the couple is not included in the event plans, they will find their own way to mark its significance. Recently, the couple was seen leaving a restaurant in Montecito, California, on August 2, just ahead of Meghan's birthday on August 4. The event is scheduled to take place in Balmoral and coincides with Prince Harry's expected attendance at the 2023 Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany, from September 9. Senior members of the royal family, including Prince Andrew, are expected to be present at the anniversary ceremony. Since 2020, Harry and Meghan have distanced themselves from Royal Family affairs after choosing to step down from royal duties. This separation has been exacerbated by significant events, such as the release of Harry's memoir, which criticized certain members of the Royal Family, including Prince William. Although Harry was briefly seen at his father's Coronation in May, he returned to the US within 24 hours of the ceremony.
