In a sign Queen Elizabeth is looking to heal the royal rift after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave up their royal duties, the two have reportedly been invited to be part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

According to Daily Mail, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will appear at family events. It is understood, the events to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne would include the traditional Buckingham Palace balcony appearance and a service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral. But it all depends on their decision to travel to London from their home in California. As Harry and his wife are non working members of the Royal family, they will not be invited to take part in any official events like Trooping the Color.

The moment on the Buckingham Palace balcony, for the traditional flypast on June 2, is expected to be a poignant one for the Queen. It will most likely mark the last time they will all appear together during the monarch's reign. The Sussexes' presence would mean a lot to the 95-year-old Queen, believe her aides. But they have warned it would have to be carefully managed and would involve a "leap of faith" from all sides after a string of damaging claims made by Harry and Meghan since they left London and moved to California.

The Sussexes were not in a position to discuss future travel plans, a spokesperson for the couple said on Monday amid a row over Harry's security.

As the monarch, who will celebrate her 96th birthday on Thursday, is increasingly becoming frail, it is believed that she will unlikely make extensive public appearances herself during the Jubilee celebrations, reported Mirror.

The report on the invitation comes after Harry and Meghan seemingly promised the Queen that she will get to hug her great-grandchildren Archie and Lilibet "in the near future" during a "very cordial" secret meeting.

Talking about his recent secret meeting with the Queen, Harry said that she would have "loved" to be at the Invictus Games, reported Daily Mail. The 37-year-old said that "it was great to see her" during a quick stop-off before he reached the Netherlands for the event that was started by Harry for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women in 2014.
