Prince Harry and Meghan Markle "won't be seen much" during Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebration, "Royally Us" co-host Christine Ross revealed.

According to Ross, the couple will instead maintain a low profile during the celebration, opting to attend "private celebrations" to honor of the Queen. "Meghan and Harry will be there for the celebrations," Ross said. "I think that they will mostly take part in private celebrations. I don't think we're going to see them very much, to be honest. But they're there, they're part of the family, but they're not taking away from the story."

"If they didn't go, the story would be they're not allowed to go," Ross said. "But, and if they were there and they were front and center on the balcony again, they would be the main headlines. I feel like we're going to see a lot of decisions in the next couple of weeks that are really forcing a redirection of the conversation to the Queen. All of this is about the Queen. It's not about the drama with Harry and Meghan. It's not about the drama with Andrew."

The Platinum Jubilee is scheduled for June 2 to June 5, honoring the Queen's historic 70 years on the throne; she is considered the longest-reigning British monarch in history, surpassing Queen Victoria's time. "It's really about Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and her 70 years on the throne," Ross continued. "So, I think we're going to see a lot of these careful considerations that sort of redirect that spotlight."

Meanwhile, royal author Ian Lloyd recently claimed that the Royal Family does not honor a second child as much as the first one because of "heir and spare." Harry is believed to have always been a spare to Prince William. Harry's rank in the family was only reduced after William welcomed three children with Kate Middleton.

"The problem with being the second is that you grow up with your sibling and you are equal - Diana treated Harry and William as equals, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth treated Elizabeth and Margaret like equals when they were children. But then what happens is that when the older one becomes sovereign or the heir it feels the second sibling more or less disappears."

The expert went on and mentioned Princess Margaret and Queen Elizabeth as a reference. He exemplified that if ever Queen was killed during World War II, Margaret would become the Queen. Lloyd also believed that Meghan and Harry have no role in the Royal Family, "They only ever support the heir and spare, so Meghan and Harry would never shine in this country."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex previously made a surprise visit to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen, and the couple were then invited to attend the Platinum Jubilee, which will start with a Trooping the Colour parade and Buckingham Palace balcony appearance on June 2. However, the Queen officially announced recently that only working members of the Royal Family would appear on the balcony, eliminating the possible appearance of Meghan, Harry or Prince Andrew.
