Harry and Meghan ‘set for showdown’ with William and Kate amid Jubilee balcony snub

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set for a "frosty showdown" with Prince William at Kate Middleton when they reunite for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are due to fly from the US to the UK along with their two children Archie and Lilibet to celebrate the Queen's record breaking 70 years on the throne next month.

Harry, 37, and 40 year old Meghan shared their excitement over their pending visit to the UK, which will mark the first time all the Sussex's have been to the UK since Harry and Meghan stepped down from their roles as senior working royals in 2020.

The couple will not be joining the working royals on the Buckingham Palace balcony, despite reports the Queen invited them to do so last month. However, they are likely to join the family at St Paul's Cathedral for a thanksgiving service, to celebrate the Queen's incredible reign.

Harry and Meghan will attend alongside Prince William, 39, and Kate, 40, whom they have not been photographed alongside since March 2020 at the Commonwealth Day in March 2020.

Former working senior Royals Harry and Meghan appeared at the service, which was the couple's last appearance before they officially stepped down and move to the United States of America.

It's understood Harry and William's relationship has since hit rock bottom and tensions are said to have been made worse by the Sussexs' interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the bombshell interview, Harry made a series of claims about the Royal Family including a claim that an unnamed member of the Firm asked the couple about the colour of their unborn child's skin.

Following the interview, Prince William was asked if the Royal Family were racist during an engagement at an east London school. He said: "We’re very much not a racist family."

The brothers were then publicly reunited as they unveiled the statue they had commissioned in memory of their mother Princess Diana.

It was later claimed in Harry and Meghan's biography Finding Freedom William was "was understood to be ‘furious’ that private family matters were being discussed in the public domain".

Meanwhile, it's also been claimed William fears Harry will use conversations from the Queen's Jubilee celebrations as material for his Netflix shows.

A source has claimed the Duke of Cambridge is "wary" about his brother's decision to join the celebrations.

An insider told The Sun: "William wants to talk to Harry to try to heal the rift between them but he’s fearful it will find its way on to Netflix, Oprah or into Harry's upcoming book."
