Queen has chance to solve Harry and Meghan feud with perfect olive branch

A royal commentator has claimed that the current Royal Family feud could finally be put to rest with one simple act of kindness next year.

Marlene Koenig believes that, ahead of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee next year, extending an invite across the pond to Prince Harry and Meghan would be the "perfect olive branch".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex haven't been in the UK as a couple since they jetted off to sunny California in March last year.

Although Harry's relationship with the Firm reportedly remains strained, particularly with father Prince Charles and brother Prince William, Koenig thinks the couple are still important royals.

Speaking to Expres.co.uk, she said: "I think it would just send a good message. Forget about the previous comments and statements that have been said.

"This would be the Queen saying 'you are my family', and I think that would be very important.

"I would think that it would be the perfect olive branch for the Queen to say, 'I want you there'."

Next year, the Queen will be the first British monarch to reach her 70th year on the throne. The celebrations will include an extended bank holiday weekend from June 2-5, even though the actual date of the anniversary is February 6.

Another royal expert, historian Hugo Vickers, believes the celebrations will be massive, especially following the lockdowns of the last two years.

He said: "It's such an opportunity to have fun, to celebrate the Queen and to enjoy doing it.

"The Queen herself is going to do about 10 big things in the course of the year.

"Nobody's ever seen a Platinum Jubilee before. I think it will be hugely significant.

"By the time it comes around, with a bit of luck, people will feel happier about coming.

"They'll have been locked up for two years more or less and they'll suddenly burst into life."

In 2012, the Queen and Prince Philips visited all the regions of the UK to celebrate their Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years of Elizabeth II on the throne.

For next year's historic event, Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said: "We can all look forward to a special, four-day Jubilee weekend, when we will put on a spectacular, once-in-a-generation show that mixes the best of British ceremonial splendour with cutting edge art and technology."
