Meghan Markle is all set to attend this week’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in the UK, but the former American actress is believed to be against repairing her rift with the Royal Family.

Since leaving full time duties in March 2020 with her husband, Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex has been on frosty terms with the Royal Family, according to Express. The royals are said to still be furious with Harry and Meghan after the two branded them racist in their interview with Oprah Winfrey last year.

And now, royal commentator and biographer Howard Hodgson has said that he isn’t convinced Meghan's appearance at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations to mark Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year-reign will repair relations with the Royal Family.

Hodgson told The Sun that he doesn’t think Meghan "wants it to be repaired, because if it was repaired, that might get Harry wanting to come back and play his role." The biographer noted that in a way, Harry's father, Prince Charles, doesn’t want any "focus going in that direction, he wants a straight-line focus on him, William and George.”

But the Queen will “go out of her way” to welcome Harry and Meghan back into the fold with some “special gestures," said royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams. He noted that there’s "this rift with the Sussexes and it’s been really damaging." His own feeling is that the monarch will "go out of her way to be as generous a host as she possibly can."

He said that nobody wants a repeat of what happened at the "rather extraordinary Commonwealth Day, with the Cambridges and Sussexes actually looking hostile to each other." He noted that anything like that is not going to happen now, and that he wouldn’t be "surprised if there are special gestures to make them feel welcome.”

The Queen, 96, will be joined by only working royals for her traditional appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony. Harry and Meghan have been excluded as they quit working as senior royals in 2020, but there are rumors that there may be a second balcony appearance featuring the Queen’s extended family. It might include Harry and Meghan as well.
