Harry and Meghan are said to be not invited to the state dinner at Buckingham Palace on September 18 because they are no longer performing royal duties.
On the evening of September 16, Harry and Meghan are said to have received an invitation to a state reception event hosted by King Charles III and Queen Camilla at Buckingham Palace on the evening of September 18.
However, sources close to Harry and Meghan expressed confusion when palace officials later confirmed the two were not invited and were not expected to be at the state banquet.
They emphasize the event is only open to members who are performing their royal duties, as well as world leaders and foreign royals. Representatives of Harry – Meghan have not yet responded to this information.
US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron and many heads of state will be welcomed to London for a state dinner the night before Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. Guests are required to dress formally, no hats, no fancy accessories.
Prince William and his wife, Princess Anne, and Prince Andrew take on the role of reception. Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako, who has retired from most public events for 20 years, will attend the event. The guest list also includes the ambassadors of North Korea and Iran.
