Queen Elizabeth might be joined by her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle on the Buckingham Palace balcony for her Platinum Jubilee celebration without the Netflix team.

The US-based couple might take up the invitation to join the British Royal Family for the traditional Royal Air Force fly-past as crowds watch from The Mall, but Netflix cameras are not allowed, reported The Sun. They might even bring their daughter Lilibet, for the first time to the UK alongside their son Archie. The Queen, who is turning 96 Thursday, has never met Lilibet, who is named after her.

Palace planners are reportedly trying to work out where Harry and Meghan should stand for the balcony line-up. The Sussexes, now non-working royals, should stand at the edge while the monarch appears with her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla one side and Harry's elder brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton on the other.

It is understood that Harry and Meghan will not be allowed to have their Netflix film crew on the balcony. A team from the streaming giant, with which they have a £113 million ($14,73,26,575) deal, followed them at the Invictus Games in Netherlands after they had surprise “clear the air talks” with the Queen, Charles, and Camilla at Windsor last Thursday.

A source said that it’s expected that the "Sussexes will be on the balcony, quite possibly with their children," and that it will be a "powerful show of unity for the Queen but it is proving a headache for planners.” Behind palace walls there are fears that the “Harry and Meg show” could “hijack or overshadow” the Platinum Jubilee celebrations that run from June 2 to June 5. The couple were reportedly denied a “half-in, half-out” royal role amid fears they might use it to cash in on their life in the US, but senior staff pointed out that the pair promised “to uphold the values of Her Majesty” at all times.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Vine show panelist Cristo Foufas slammed Harry and Meghan for bringing a Netflix camera crew with them to the Invictus Games, reported Daily Star. Foufas said on the Channel 5 show Monday that he does have "some great sympathy for the plight of privacy for the Duke and Duchess of Netflix who were obviously spending time with the Queen this weekend." He added that it was a very "intimate meeting between them, the queen, the director, the cameraman, the hair, make-up, their publicist..."
