Even so, however, the pair’s return this Jubilee was hotly anticipated after bombshell TV interviews prompted rumours of a rift between the Sussexes and the Royal Family in recent years.
But Meghan and Harry’s focus was firmly on celebrating the Queen and her long reign, despite being missing from the Trooping The Colour balcony appearance as only working royals were invited to join the Queen, leaving out several royals including the Sussexes.
The pair kept a low profile as they watched the procession with other non-working royals from Horse Guard’s Parade.
The following day, Harry and Meghan looked delighted to attend the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, and many in the crowd cheered upon their arrival.
The couple were not seated with working royals during the service and instead took up a spot on the opposite side of the chapel with the rest of the Queen’s grandchildren and extended family.
But as for the other Platinum Jubilee events over the four-day weekend, Meghan and Harry were noticeably absent.
The Sussexes didn’t appear at the Platinum Party at the Palace on Saturday night, nor did they attend the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on Sunday.
