Prince Edward is given Ulster Jubilee role and William and Kate will head for Wales

-

- Advertisment -

The Queen will use her Platinum Jubilee to emphasise UK unity, sending members of her family to all four nations.

Prince William and wife Kate will visit Wales over the extended bank holiday weekend from June 2 to 5.

Prince Edward and Sophie will go to Northern Ireland while Princess Anne heads to Scotland.

Prince Charles and Camilla will remain in London with the Queen.

There will be no roles for Prince Harry and Meghan and Prince Andrew.

The four main events of the weekend – Trooping the Colour, the Party at the Palace, the Platinum Jubilee Pageant and a service of thanksgiving – will all be in London. 

But jubilee beacons will be lit at 2,000 locations around the UK and the Commonwealth on June 2 and over 60,000 Big Jubilee Lunches involving millions of Britons will be held on June 5.

A Palace spokesman said: ‘Members of the Royal Family will attend engagements in each nation, including public events marking the occasion.’

Further details of the visits will be revealed in the coming weeks.

It comes after the Queen personally decided that only members of the royal family who are currently undertaking official public duties on her behalf will be eligible to join her on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for Trooping the Colour

Last week Buckingham Palace confirmed further details of the Platinum Jubilee weekend from June 2-5.

And they revealed that the Queen had personally decided, after ‘careful consideration’, that only members of the royal family who are currently undertaking official public duties on her behalf will be eligible to join her on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for Trooping the Colour, the first major public event of the celebrations.

She has also given special permission for the Cambridge’s three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to attend, as well as Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn, Edward and Sophie’s son and daughter.

Princess Anne’s husband, Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, will also be among the 18 attendees as he regularly accompanies his 70-year-old wife on official duties and tours.

Her decision made clear in light of fevered public debate as to whether Harry, Meghan and Andrew could join her in a show of family unity, that they would not be welcome.

But she has extended an invitation to join her in a personal capacity at other events over the extended bank holiday weekend including a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral and the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.

And within minutes of her announcement, a spokesman for the Sussexes in the US rushed out a statement saying that they were ‘excited and honoured’ to attend with their their two children.

Archie, three, hasn’t seen his British family since he was a baby, while his sister Lili, who will celebrate her first birthday while in the UK, has never met any of them.

There is a certain amount of concern among royal aides about how Harry and Meghan will be received and how the difficulty family dynamics will play out in public.

William has, in particular, been left hurt and angry by his brother’s behaviour and his repeated attacks on the Royal Family.

But there is also a determination to put family hostilities to one side to celebrate the Queen’s historic 70 years of peerless service to the nation.

‘If Her Majesty is happy for this to happen you can expect everyone to follow her lead. 

‘I also know the Prince of Wales is particularly excited to meet his grand-children,’ a source told the Mail.
