In the wake of the Queen’s passing, the royal family has seemingly put their dramatic interpersonal dynamics to one side.
However, it appears Meghan Markle and Prince Harry didn’t get an invitation to the reception at Buckingham Palace, leaving some of their closest friends “baffled.”
There are reports that Meghan and Harry did not receive an invitation to the state reception at Buckingham Palace on Sunday evening hosted by King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla.
Before the Queen’s funeral, Buckingham Palace welcomed world leaders and royals from many countries who attended the event.
A formal invitation went out to the Sussexes earlier this week. Still, they later discovered that the event was strictly for “working members of the royal family only.”
According to reports, the reception was a “muted affair.” The guests expected to wear “lounge suits or morning dress” as they enjoyed drinks and canapés.
Among the hosts are Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
Reportedly, there has been a bit of miscommunication regarding Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the Royals.
During the Queen’s final vigil, Harry did not have the right to wear his military uniform.
Despite this, King Charles allowed Harry to appear in uniform with his brother Prince William. A palace source stated, “At the King’s request, they will both be in uniform.”
An additional source said, “Common sense has prevailed. It was a ludicrous situation, given the Duke of Sussex has served his country.”
Additionally, the source stated, “And is a highly respected member of the armed forces with everything he has done for veterans.
The insider pointed out, “It is important that the Queen’s grandchildren are all made to feel welcome and comfortable as they grieve their beloved grandmother together.”
