Prince Harry is slated to fly to Europe this weekend for the Invictus Games, but he is not anticipated to pay a visit to his ill grandmother, the Queen.
According to royal analyst Robert Jobson, Harry is’very unlikely’ to deviate from his Invictus tour in the Netherlands to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 96th birthday with family on April 21.
“The question is whether he will come over to Britain to wish his grandmother, the Queen, a happy 96th birthday on April 21,” Jobson told The Mirror. Given the division he has made in the family, it is quite improbable.”
He went on to say, “Harry stated he wanted to bring his kids from across the Atlantic to visit, but ‘doesn’t feel comfortable’ under the existing security arrangements.” Isn’t this merely another excuse?”
“Is the Hague any less safe than Westminster Abbey for his grandpa Philip’s thanksgiving ceremony, where the Queen led her family and Europe’s crowned heads in respect to her late husband?” Jobson inquired.
Jobson even speculated that Harry and Meghan would not return to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this summer.
“Despite the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee festivities in June, I don’t see Harry returning to the UK this year,” he added.
