Reports that Harry and Meghan were uninvited to pre-funeral reception are conflicting as royal drama unfolds

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly been uninvited to Queen Elizabeth II’s pre-funeral reception at Buckingham Palace which is allegedly only for working British royals, world leaders, and foreign royals.

The Telegraph is reporting that the couple received an invite to the prestigious event that will be hosted by King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla. They were then allegedly informed that they actually were not invited after stepping down as senior royals in 2020.

It is still unclear why the high-profile couple was invited in the first place and there are conflicting reports on whether they will attend or not. Yahoo New UK is reporting that despite the reception originally only being for working members of the royal family, an exception was made and the Sussexes are expected to attend.

Sources told the Telegraph that the couple “appeared baffled” by the apparent mixup.


Evidently, there has been a ton of misinformation and gossip concerning the royals during the mourning of the Queen. There are so many conflicting reports, that it’s hard to tell what is factual and what is not at this point.

Harry and Meghan have been in the UK following the death of the Queen who passed away on Sept. 8 at the age of 96 following her historic 70-year reign.

They were rumored to have attended a private reunion dinner to which all royals were invited, according to The Sun. It was also reported that all was forgiven during the gathering.

Fox News is painting a different picture of the event altogether, claiming that bread was never broken. Instead, drinks and snacks were served and there was polite conversation. But Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William, and Kate Middleton evidently did not reconcile. The confab was allegedly short-lived and Meghan reportedly felt “uncomfortable.”

The couple surprised everyone when they appeared with William and Kate at Windsor Castle last Saturday to thank members of the public who are mourning her majesty. The four have been seen at a number of events, including the arrival of the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall on Wednesday for her lying-in-state.

Prince Harry and Markle also reportedly breached royal protocol during the monarch’s procession, which took place on Wednesday, by holding hands.

The couple gave up their royal duties as Duke and Duchess of Sussex in January 2020 due to an alleged falling out within the family. They have since relocated from England to California.

There is also confusion over Harry’s right to wear a military uniform throughout his visit back home. King Charles granted permission for him to wear his uniform during a Saturday night vigil for the Queen.

The state event will be attended by many of the world’s most powerful individuals who will gather in the same building.

It is believed foreign office officials have handwritten approximately 1,000 invitations for the funeral and the reception with King Charles.

Around 500 dignitaries will attend the state funeral, in what is said to be one of the biggest logistical and diplomatic events in the UK in decades.

They will join members of the royal family, UK prime ministers past and present, and key figures from public life at Westminster Abbey which can hold approximately 2,000 people. The funeral will take place at 11 am on Monday, according to People.

President Biden is among those expected to attend the reception and the funeral. Harry and Meghan are also expected to attend the funeral on Monday.
