Initially, the couple received an invitation to a grand event organized by King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla for world leaders and foreign royals. But now they have apparently been informed that only “working members” of the British royal family are welcome.

“The King and The Queen Consort will host heads of state and official overseas guests at Buckingham Palace before the state funeral of Her Majesty the Queen. This will be an official state event,” the Palace statement said.

An official event hosted by the King is scheduled for Sunday, 18 September 2022, with heads of state and official foreign guests on the invitee list.

Previously, Prince Harry and Meghan arrived at Buckingham Palace, where, along with other members of the Royal family, they met the Queen’s coffin as it arrived from Scotland.

Prince Harry and Meghan the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, stepped down from royal duties in January 2020.

Queen Elizabeth II died after more than 70 years on the British throne, on 8 September at the age of 96, at Balmoral in Scotland surrounded by her family. Her eldest son, Charles, became King of the United Kingdom immediately on her death, but the official accession ceremony took place on Saturday at St James’s Palace in London.
