Prince Harry Declines ‘Save the Date’ to Duke of Westminster’s Wedding Amidst Royal Family Dynamics

Royal Wedding Invitation Declined:

Prince Harry has reportedly turned down a ‘save the date’ for the Duke of Westminster’s wedding, opting to avoid what sources describe as an ‘awkward’ situation with the royal family.

Both Harry and his brother Prince William received invitations to Hugh Grosvenor’s upcoming wedding to Olivia Henson, set to take place next summer at Chester Cathedral.

Personal Apology to Duke of Westminster:

In a personal call to the Duke, Prince Harry expressed his regrets, apologizing for his and Meghan’s absence from the high-profile event.

The decision, as insiders reveal, stems from a desire to prevent potential discomfort within the royal family, and the Duke is said to have understood Harry’s position.

Speculations and Wedding Dynamics:

Speculations arose surrounding the Duke’s decision not to invite the Sussexes to the wedding, with concerns about potential drama and the ongoing rift between Prince Harry and Prince William.

Reports suggest that William and Kate, as well as King and Queen Camilla, are expected to attend the June 6 wedding, with Prince Charles possibly serving as the best man.

Clarifying Previous Reports:

Recent reports hinted at the Duke of Westminster initially planning to invite Harry and Meghan but later changing his mind to avoid complications.

An insider close to Team Sussex countered these claims, revealing that Harry had received a ‘save the date’ card months ago and personally communicated his decision to the Duke.

Friendship Dynamics and Unfortunate Circumstances:

A friend of both William and Harry expressed sadness over the situation, highlighting the unique bond Hugh Grosvenor shares with the royal brothers.

The friend acknowledges the wish for reconciliation but recognizes the unlikelihood of it happening before the wedding, emphasizing the desire to spare any awkwardness on the special day.

Background on Duke of Westminster:

Hugh Grosvenor, known as Hughie to his friends, is a billionaire and godfather to Prince Archie as well as Prince George. With deep ties to the royal family, Grosvenor’s wedding has garnered attention, not only for its grandeur but also for the complexities surrounding the guest list and familial relationships.

Legal Consequences and Ongoing Royal Drama:

The news of Harry and Meghan’s decision not to attend the Duke’s wedding coincides with mounting backlash over the couple’s silence on racism claims made in Omid Scobie’s book, “Endgame.” A potential meeting between Prince William and King Charles is set to discuss how to handle the fallout, with legal consequences still on the table.

Proposed Title Stripping:

Conservative MP Bob Seely proposes a Bill that could strip the Sussexes of their Duke and Duchess titles, citing the ‘poisonously insidious’ use of race in smearing the Royal Family.

The proposed Titles Deprivation 1917 Amendment Bill seeks to revive wartime laws that could lead to the removal of Harry and Meghan’s titles.

Ongoing Silence and Political Response:

The couple’s continued silence on the racism claims has prompted political responses, with MP Bob Seely aiming to bring legislation that revives historical laws to potentially alter Harry and Meghan’s titles.

The royal family maintains a ‘business as usual’ stance, but the repercussions of the ongoing controversy remain uncertain.
