Meghan and Harry warned Jubilee is ‘not about them’ and not to upstage the Queen

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ahave been told they must accept their role on the sidelines of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee as it is 'not about them'.

The Sussexes are due to fly into the UK for their first joint visit since leaving the firm in 2020 this week to join in with Her Majesty's 70-year celebrations.

However, in a desperate open letter to the pair, prominent Royal photographer Arthur Edwards has begged them to take a back seat.

Writing in the Sun, Mr Edwards said: "Dear Harry and Meghan.

"I am sure you are both already aware, this week’s historic Bank Holiday celebrations is all about commemorating Queen Elizabeth’s remarkable reign.

"And, with respect, it is not about the pair of you."

In a measured attack on the pair's past love of the spotlight, Mr Edwards continued to state that the pair missing the trooping of the colour balcony display would be hard for them but is a decision they should have expected and respect.

He also demanded they leave their "Netflix crew behind and allow the Queen to take centre stage."

He concluded: "Please, Harry and Meghan, don’t let Her Majesty down and, for once, take a back seat. Let the real star of the Jubilee shine."

Meghan and Harry's public appearances at the Jubilee Celebrations are thought to be few and far between.
