Harry & Meghan Rejected the Queen’s Christmas ‘Invitation’—Here’s Why They’re ‘Not Coming’

Home for the holidays. While we’ve heard whispers of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attending the royal family’s Christmas dinner, it sounds like a trip across the pond isn’t currently in the cards for the Sussexes. A new report claims that the California-based couple are “not coming” to the U.K. for Christmas with the Queen.

This year will mark the 95-year-old monarch’s first Christmas since her husband Prince Philip’s death in April 2021. Following his death, there have been numerous reports about the Queen’s health issues, leading many to wonder if Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, would make the trip out with their children—2-year-old Archie and 5-month-old Lilibet—to see the aging royal this holiday season. According to a source who spoke to Page Six on November 17, 2021, an “invitation” was already sent out to the Sussexes, but royal staffers aren’t holding their breath when it comes to getting an RSVP from the couple.

“There’s a lot that goes into the logistics and the planning of the family Christmas, so of course, staff know that Harry and Meghan are not coming,” one source told the site. “If they were, they would have communicated it to their family by now.” The insider went on to note, “But this is Her Majesty’s first Christmas without her husband, so one would have hoped they would want to be with her.”

So, why aren’t Meghan and Harry attending? Well, according to Page Six’s source, the couple are wary about the media backlash that they may face once they return to the U.K. “I think everyone understands there will be a frenzy when they both come back to the UK, but they need to rip the [Band-Aid] off and get on with it,” the insider said.

Meghan and Harry have not spent Christmas with the royal family since 2018. The couple opted to break royal tradition in 2019 by spending the winter holidays with their son Archie in Canada. Then, in 2020, the Sussexes were unable to visit the royal family for Christmas a second time due to travel restrictions that prevented them from visiting the U.K. from California, which is where they relocated following their royal exit earlier that year. Needless to say, it’s been quite a while since the Duke and Duchess have celebrated Christmas with the rest of the royal family—and it looks like this will continue to be the case this holiday season.

Harry doesn't realize this might be his last chance to make his grandmother happy, and try to reconcile with the family.

The gesture of taking his family - or maybe even just his two kids - back to England, would go such a long way with the Queen, Prince Charles, and William.

But he would rather play this stupid little game.

I think the fact that he has two young children, would at least open up some dialogue between Harry and his father and brother. It's hard to keep up a grudge, when you have two little kids by your side. And I'm sure Queen Elizabeth would love to see her great-grandchildren.

It's such a small thing, but the gesture would be huge.

Harry really needs to re-think this.

They know what they've done, they know why, they know what is true and they know what's not.

Given that, how do they go back? This isn't the Hallmark Channel.

by Anonymousreply 4November 17, 2021 10:09 PM

I think it’s most likely they’ll bring the kids over to see the Queen and Charles (not Will) at a lower-key time, maybe between US Thanksgiving and Christmas, be on best behavior, and then the news will come out once they’ve landed back in the US.

Putting everything else aside, they will want for their kids to at least meet their great-gran, and she’ll want to meet them.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some agreement in place to avoid William and Harry being present at the same time. Clearly bad blood there.

Who knows ….. Harry probably loves his grandmother …. must knew of her ill health, fear she may not last another year. He left his father, brother, the family. They may not be thrilled to have him in their midst. Then there is her. They will blame her, two kids in tow will not charm them. The press will keep an eye on the H&M digs in CA, so a venture out for a super-secret private night flight to England would set the tabloids on fire. Any rich nobody could do it easily, fly over, use Heathrow private-plane area, quick car to Windsor. Done! Windsor has rooms, Harry could hide from any family he did not want to see, really only have to suffer a family gathering at Christmas dinner. Oh poor Gan! Or ….he, they, could stay home in CA. Harry left duties and family … he does not belong with the Windsor family now, he left.

When the Queen first fell ill weeks ago, H&M's PR said they both wanted to go see her. That must have been declined by the palace because then the PR was that Harry would go see the Queen alone.

H&M probably thought it better to have at least one of them go so that they can maintain the illusion that they're still pseudo royals for their Netflix doc. That must have been declined, too, as now the excuse is they're "too busy".

They do not realize that they are not saving face nor fooling anyone. The whole world knows that they are no longer welcome by the family. We knew it the minute the Oprah special ended.

It would be much better had they not commented at all and left it to wonder. They are fools.

While sensitive to its ratio decidendi, I am saddened by this decision, and it remains my fervent wish that Uncle Harry and Aunt Meghan might reconsider. Their presence at Christmas would, I know, give us all an opportunity to rejoice in glad tidings while acknowledging the inexorable march of fate.

I should also be delighted to show Aunt Meghan my own storybook, written entirely by my hand and secreted in the basement of a remote cottage deep in the thickets at Sandringham.

If they wanted to go--with or without the kids--they would.

If Mr. & Mrs. Markle are worried about traveling with kids, they could just go on their own for three or four days. And then do a Zoom call to have the queen see the kids especially Lilibet who no one has seen. The Markles don't want to go.

Harry has extreme Stockholm Syndrome. Harry is like Patty Hearst and now solely identifies with his captor.

Markle has succeeded in isolating Harry from all family and friends. And she has isolated herself from all of her own family except maybe her mother. She seems to have no old friends--or even any current ones. Everything is a business arrangement particularly new friends, more aptly called "associates."

Even before covid, Harry wasnt going hunting with his brother because Rachel had an issue with it.

At Christmas, she’s got the Yorkies’ new babies to coo over as well as the usual cohort of great grandchildren who are all at the cute/rambunctious stage. It’s a house full.

There was once a woman named Susie Sharp Lynch who got divorced from her husband and went to great lengths to keep their two sons away from him and his family because she was extremely bitter about the divorce.

She was narcissistic, extremely paranoid and was constantly making up lies that her ex-husband had mafia connections and was constantly threatening to have her and their kids murdered. She also hated his family and went from great lengths to keep the kids from seeing their grandmother and aunt.

Eventually she entered into an incestuous relationship with her cousin who was a paranoid schizophrenic gun nut who impersonated a doctor and had him kill her former mother-in-law and sister-in-law because they were well off and helping her ex in the custody battle and then she later had him kill her parents and grandmother because they were going to testify against her in court in favor of her ex.

Eventually a police chase and shootout ensued which ended with her, her cousin, her two sons and their dogs all being killed when her cousin had the car rigged to exploded.

This all happened and the mid-80's and after I was done reading about it I realized how much she reminded me of Rachel.

I guess that Harry may have to build bridges and visit eventually. However, here's the problem, speculatively speaking, about visiting:

Yes, in theory he probably should visit. But the reality is no one really wants him there. Harry and Markle have deeply hurt, angered and disgusted the British royal family. As a result, Harry would show up with or without Markle and the kids. The queen, maybe Kate, Beatrice and Eugenie would be cordial and fuss over the kids for a couple of hours or maybe an afternoon. But after that, Harry knows he is unwanted. No one will be clamoring to see Harry and no one wants to see Markle or even "ask if she's okay." So what does he do? Where would he go, where would he stay? Sure there are plenty of places for him to stay, but nobody wants to talk to him. So he goes back to his room--and does what?

The family, especially William, doesn't want to see Harry. Charles is hurt, Camilla, Anne and Edward are likely pissed and are not in the mood to coddle Harry. They probably feel like they don't even know him any longer. The family is angry at him for that irreparable lying and toxic interview he and Markle did with Oprah. The media would be all over the Harry's visit. The family would isolate and turn away from Harry and Markle after their initial "Hello and nods." There wouldn't be any good news to report in the media. The visit would damage the family. And if the family isn't all that friendly with Harry and/or Markle, it would give those the opportunity to play the victim once again.

The family is not friendly with with H&M, so what good would a do if they would only realistically spend a couple of hours with each other? No one wants him stopping by for a visit and hanging around their living room when they all have families of their own and want to have happy holidays themselves. Maybe it's better not to force a very unproductive and unfriendly visit. Yes, Harry always says he likes his grandmother, but let's face it, she's 95. She's not going to be hanging around with him for more than an afternoon.

And lastly, they all know he's "writing" (collaborating) on that tell-all book due out next year. A book like that is a deadly and toxic nonstarter with the royal family. They are all going avoid the two Monteshitto grifters as Diana would say, "like a bad rash."

For those saying children shouldn't fly between the US/UK. I have done that journey 2x with children, helping a family member. The planes were full of other people travelling with children and everyone was being safe, courteous, and helping each other out. A great many Americans and Brits live in the opposite country and have been travelling to see family on either side. If we mere plebs can do it multiple times safely, I'm sure H&M have the resources to have a safe TransAtlantic journey with their children as well. There are many reasons for them not to go to the UK, but not this one.

Of course since it seems like they aren't coming, you all and the British tabloids are crying that they're offending the queen, banned from the UK, and only thinking of themselves, respectively.

They can't win, you all want them both dead and not living as that is the only acceptable punishment in your minds for going against The Firm, and even then you'd probably find some way to say that the manner of their deaths was offensive to the queen, the UK, or the environment.

We all wish there was a way they could rue the world.But they are forever the King & Queen of all our hearts!!

Meghan's mother is going to be invited for Christmas with the Queen. Nope, she wasn't.

Lilibet is going to have a Windsor christening. Crickets.

The Sussexes are going to be invited to Sandringham for Christmas....oh wait...the couple declined.

by Anonymousreply 92November 18, 2021 7:36 PM

R91 - let me explain it to you.

SS makes a claim that the Sussexes have been invited to Christmas with the Queen =

Hey, Queenie. We want to come see you so invite us back to England. Maybe we can christen Lilibet while we're over here too!

When the Queen doesn't do what they want = Sadly, the Sussexes have declined her invitation.

Of course, the only way we would know for sure is if the Palace "leaks" that no Xmas invitation was sent to H & M.

Think about it...why would the Sussexes be invited after what Ms. Perjury did? Is the Queen going to ruin everyone's Christmas to accommodate these two losers? Is she going to sully her own reputation and that of the monarchy by having them anywhere near her at this time? I don't think anyone would relish playing "Happy Family".

As you age you are less able to tolerate stress & high drama. HM is saving herself(or the family is doing it for her)from needless stress & agro. No matter how gracious the RF may be it will get twisted for bucks & attention.

The best way to avoid drama is to avoid dramatic people whenever you can. That's exactly what the RF seem to be doing .Catherine must be on her knees at Westminster Abbey thanking God they are at Monteshitto & praying that they stay there forever more!

^Well, the article in New York Magazine last week, re the "trolls" that are allegedly harassing MeAgain online, was indeed written by someone at UCLA in an "institute" that is paid for and supported by Archewell. That fact appears nowhere in connection with the piece itself, it was only pointed out by readers in the Comments section, who bothered to look into the author of the piece. So, yes, the Harkles paid for that lengthy and fraudulent "expose' ", which was based entirely on fake forensic science. She paid for this and it was exposed very quickly. The article is still online, it's in their section called "The Cut."

I find Markle and Harry intensely irritating, but I also understand the need to distance yourself from bad family dynamics.

They made the situation worse with all their dramatics, but I do believe at the beginning it was a generally bad situation and they needed to leave.

There probably was some racism, William seems a dick, Kate seems frigidly aloof, Charles has always been an asshole.

Had they gone away quietly and in an organized way, I think the sympathy would still be with them.

by Anonymousreply 150November 22, 2021 4:19 PM

R150 - they left because of many reasons and not any of them are because of the three people you mentioned.

(1) the main reason they left is the incredible need to make money from their titles and they couldn't do it within the BRF because the Queen said no to their "half-in/half out" request.

(2) They left because they couldn't control the bad, mean British press and Buckingham Palace wasn't going to stick up for them because most of the bad stories were TRUE. The Palace gave them people to help, buried the bullying in the hope it would go away. Highly doubtful there was racism.

(3) Meghan needed to find her "voice" and she couldn't do it within the Royal Family. Meghan doesn't like to be any number but No# 1 but alas, in the Windsor family, No# 1 is THE QUEEN. It always has to be about MEGHAN.

They weren't invited. The end.

That's strictly their PR doing the manifesting trick: if they say it happened, it will happen.

The Sussexes know that Knauf finally gave that damning shit to ANL's legal team because the Palace, taking the gloves off after the Oprah interview, greenlit it for Knauf. Knauf works for William and Kate now. Charles also won't protect Meghan any longer just to protect Harry. And the Queen was livid about the Lilibet shit.

Christmas lunch with the family? Really? The photo op walk from church at Sandringham with the public waiting outside to boo the Harkles?

I don't think so. And they don't give fuck all about the two kids who are complete strangers to them. Charles has three others he adores and to whose mother and father he has become much closer.

They hate Meghan's guts and she knows it and they know she knows it. They don't want her anywhere near them. If Harry wants to try to make po peace with his Gran before she dies, he should slip in privately to do so.

But of course he won't be interested unless he can broadcast it to the world.

Meghan was just outed as a perjurer through Palace channels. If by some chance ANL pull this off, and I think there's a small chance they could, Meghan will know it was the Palace that fucked her over.

The Palace quietly took the gloves off after that shit in the spring.

This isn’t right, especially with respect to a family with great power and social and diplomatic connections inside Germany at that time. It was apparent in 1933 that Hitler was ginning up anti-Semitic sentiment, alarming enough that Germans like Victor Klemperer noticed his neighbors and colleagues bullying Jews and German Jews being locked out of their jobs and homes. Outside Germany, intelligent people who were well-versed in international affairs knew something was going wrong there and were alarmed when they saw the Nuremberg Rally. Remember, the Mitfords and other members of the aristocracy were involved with the British Union of Fascists, which went to Germany in 1933 to meet Hitler.

This doesn’t really show the Queen Mum was a Nazi, but it does show she was vapid, emphasizing that there’s nothing particularly sophisticated about the royal family’s grasp of world affairs. The country has been very lucky with QEII that she is aware of her own limitations in that area and doesn’t take a heavy hand.

Who know what the intention was in those gestures almost 90 years ago. My first assumption was that they were joking around and making fun of Hitler at a time before the death camps were in place , much less known about. Finding footage of someone imitating Trump 90 years from now won’t necessarily mean that person was a Trump supporter. On the other hand, it is possible they were hard core Nazis, but I don’t think this photo makes that possibility any more likely than it otherwise would have been.

In any event the Queen was a small child. If you want to criticise the royal family, there are probably more plausible reasons than this silly photo.

I totally agree, but it’s a good sign that of us (me included) were shortsighted and foolish not to take his thread seriously. So if someone produced a picture of me jokingly giving a thumbs up to Trump, it would be fair for people of the future to look at me and go, “stupid fool!” But as you say, that applies to the Queen Mother, not the kids who are just copying along. I’m guessing QEII feels her stomach turn looking at that picture given her war experiences.

Get over it and stop adding 2 +2 and getting 5... even the editor of The Sun, at the time, said it was more about the Duke of Windsor than anything about the Queen or the Queen Mother. The film taken in 1933... the year Hitler first became Chancellor:

Mr Abell told the BBC the video was a piece of "social history" and said the paper had set out the context of the time and explained that the Queen and Queen Mother went on to become "heroes" of World War Two. He denied the video had intruded into the Royal Family's privacy. "I think this is a piece of social history. One of the most significant events in our country's history, the Second World War, the rise of Nazism, one of the most pernicious movements in human history, and I think one is entitled to have a look at some of the background to it." He added: "We're very clear. We're of course not suggesting anything improper on behalf of the Queen or the Queen Mum."

Sun managing editor Stig Abell said he did not accept Buckingham Palace's accusation that the footage had been "exploited". He said the newspaper had decided to publish the story because it was of great public importance and the involvement of Prince Edward gave it "historical significance".

I know that was 1933 and this is 2021 when facts don't matter and you just make anything up to suit any agenda you've got, but for those of us who dwell in the real world, this is what it is and what it was... I think we have all had a moment of foolishness or thoughtlessness witnessed by others that looks stupid in isolation and is explicable if mildly awkward in hindsight.

First of all I want to confirm that you really honestly consider most or all headlines to be related to matters of great moral importance. If so, I find that very very hard to believe. I think if someone found a film of the Queen doing karate as a child it could well make headlines.

I could certainly imagine myself mocking Hitler innthe early thirties. In case you’ve never heard of it, there was a television program called Hogan’s Heroes that portrayed the Nazis as nothing worse than bumbling fools. And this was a couple of decades after the death camps were publicised. And virtually all the actors playing them were Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany. That I do find a bit bizarre and in questionable taste given the Nazis were known to have committed genocide at that point. However,It was EXTREMELY common for kids and even adults to imitate these buffoonish nazi characters To date none of the executives or Jewish actors associated with the programme has disowned it or apologised for it think it would be even weirder for the Queen to apologise for this innocuous bit of behaviour as a child

R 211 A friend informed me that the BBC is investigating other recently discovered footage of well known British and American figures bowing and scraping before Hitler. . To make it worse, unlike the Queen, these celebrities are rumoured to have been middle aged at the time and to have done so decades after the Final Solution was put into effect. in addition they are rumoured to have done so very publicly and not in their private garden where they would have assumed no one would see them. It is very disturbing since this behaviour would almost certainly mean that these figures were nazi sympathisers and confined the extermination of Jews and other minorities. The names have not been confirmed, but there are rumours that they include figues as prominent as John Cleese, Werner Klemperer, and Charlie Chaplin.

The government of the UK may be a more reliable source.

"It sets the single grant supporting the monarch’s official business, enabling The Queen to discharge her duties as Head of State. It meets the central staff costs and running expenses of Her Majesty’s official household – including official receptions, investitures and garden parties. It also covers maintenance of the Royal Palaces in England and the cost of travel to carry out royal engagements such as opening buildings and other royal visits.

In exchange for this public support, The Queen surrenders the revenue from The Crown Estate to the government which for 2019-20 was £345 million. The Sovereign Grant for 2021-22 is £86.3 million which is 25% of £345 million. Section 2 explains how this is calculated."

No negative stories would ever have appeared in the UK press, their staff would have adored them, and the Queen would have issued Leyters Patent making their two kids HRHs.

But no one did like them, except Princess Eugenie.

They put everyone's backs up from the get-go, especially Meghan.

Just endless self-marketing to keep themselves on the front pages to pay the mortgage and keep themselves in the style which they believe they deserve.

When it all would have been done for them as working royals . . . Free lovely homes, guaranteed income, extended family, another trust fund for Harry when Charles died, probably for the kids, too . . . Comfort, decent work cut to hand, beautiful clothes, and PR that came with the job.

It’s an interesting contrast with Wallis and Edward* whose post-abdication strategy was to try and hang onto the remoteness/exclusivity of royalty, putting on airs and acting as if people should be honored to visit them or if they deigned to attend a dinner. Meghan and Harry are striving hard to be celebrities, but are doing more of a “royalty - they’re just like us!” thing, which I find interesting. I can’t imagine W & E trying to talk to “the commoners” via a podcast. It worked to some extent for W & E except that they put themselves on a pedestal too high for regular socialites but too low for Edward’s family (actual royalty) and became very isolated.

* I don’t mean to suggest any approval of these two as people, I read a bio of her that made clear they were contemptible, self-involved, scheming bigots. I don’t think Harry and Meghan hold a candle to them in terms of desertion of duty or bad personal qualities.

Technically, FC is still the Sussex's "UK home" until that lease is up, when Euge and Jack take it over as the primary tenants.

But after the latest debacle when it went from just ignoring Meghan's bad behaviour to Meghan being outed as having committed perjury in a court of law, it may get a bit stickier for Euge to keep pretending.

Scobie is already covering his arse by stating he filmed that bit for the BBC last year (BP "Before Perjury).

Who the fuck sends her lawyer in to a BBC gossip show to tell the world there is absolutely no truth to the bullying accusations before the report is concluded, and for a client who clearly perjured herself in court?!

Because we all know that Afia was saying what she did Because Meghan Told Us There Was No Truth In It
