Harry, Meghan and Andrew banned from Palace balcony amid 'booing concerns', Royal insiders claim

Prince Andrew and the Sussexes were axed from Buckingham Palace balcony for the Queen’s Jubilee amid concerns that the crowd may boo them, Royal insiders have claimed.

Yesterday, news broke that Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Prince Andrew were told to stay away from iconic moment to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign on June 2.

It was expected that trio would join the Queen on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for traditional Trooping the Colour flypast from the RAF to mark the occasion.

A spokesperson for the Queen said that this event would only be limited to working members of the Royal Family.

But the Mirror is reporting that this may be an ‘elegant solution’ to concerns that the three could be booed by crowds in The Mall.

This comes amid the fallout over Prince Andrew’s sex case shame and following Harry and Meghan’s decision to quit Royal duties and move to the US.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said yesterday: “After careful consideration, the Queen has decided this year’s traditional Trooping the Colour balcony ­appearance will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties.”

Just minutes after the Queen announced her cull, Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, vowed to bring their children Archie, three, and toddler Lilibet to the UK anyway. It will be their first visit with the family since leaving for America, amid a rift with Prince William and Kate.

'Only person who talks to Prince Andrew is his horse' and he hates riding, says expert
The Diana Chronicles, says that while Prince Andrew used to absolutely hate riding, he’s doing a lot of it at the moment “because the only person who’ll talk to him is the horse”.The disgraced duke, mired in scandal because of his friendship with notorious paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, is “coroneted sleaze machine,” according to Brown.Palace sources said “ruthless and swift” action had been taken to put distance between Andrew and the royal family before he faced a US court to fight allegations from Epstein victim Virginia GiuffrePrince Charles and his son William are understood to have been 'instrumental' in the decision, which was “widely discussed” within royal circles.In January, Andrew was stripped of his military affiliations and royal patronages, and was forbidden from using the His Royal Highness [HRH] royal style in any official capacity.He was forced into an embarrassing U-turn earlier this month when – writing on his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson’s Instagram account – he posted reflections on his service during the Falklands War, and signed the post with an HRH. He later deleted the post.The Duke of York ended his seven-month legal battle to prevent an embarrassing court appearance in New York with a £12 million financial settlement to his accuser Virginia Giuffre.Sources say no public money was used to fund the settlement.

Prince Andrew “doesn’t seem to understand the public outcry” according to royal insiders – and hopes to accompany the Queen to the Epsom Derby despite his recent controversies.The Duke of York, who recently settled his infamous court case with Virginia Giuffre, is believed to be in line to attend the horse racing event with his mum in June.A source told the Sun: “He was meant to stay invisible during the Platinum Jubilee so there is no way he will be at events like Trooping the Colour.“But the Queen needs a chaperone on all occasions at the moment due to her mobility issues and Andrew has earmarked the Derby as the one he will accompany her at.“He just doesn’t seem to understand the public outcry.”The 62-year-old has faced huge questions surrounding his role in the royal family after he settled Ms Giuffre’s civil suit without an admission of guilt for an undisclosed sum.He had previously returned his military titles and royal patronage to the Queen despite having always strenuously denied all allegations.During a memorial service for Prince Philip on Tuesday, Andrew helped his elderly mother through Westminster Abbey.The decision to maintain his centre-stage appearance, broadcast live on the BBC, came as a surprise to those who thought the royal family wouldn’t want to attract attention to him.But it isn’t just the public who have questioned Andrew’s role in the monarchy and Prince Charles and Prince William are reportedly unhappy about his continued involvement.

Prince Andrew 'betrayed by his body language as he walked Queen down aisle', says expert
Prince Andrew was chosen to escort his mother the Queen to Prince Philip’s memorial service to “soften his image” with the public but his body language “betrays” him, according to an expert.The Duke of York being heavily involved in the memorial has sparked controversy with it being his first appearance in public with the Royal Family since the high-profile settlement with his accuser Virginia Giuffre.Ms Giuffre was suing him for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was 17 after being trafficked by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who Andrew had a friendship with.Leading UK psychotherapist and body language expert Nick Davies watched Andrew as escorted the Queen and believes his simple nod at the end stopped his attempt to show his “empathetic side” to the general public on Tuesday (March 29).Nick told the Daily Star: “I think having Andrew support the Queen as she comes in could have also been to soften his image with the general public and show his empathetic side, however he betrays this by just nodding to her as they move to their seats on either side of the isle rather than checking of she's OK to make the last few steps.”In January this year, Andrew was stripped of his honorary military titles and patronages by the Queen, forcing him to relinquish using HRH.At the time, Buckingham Palace said: “The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”The Queen having Andrew by her side as she made her way to the front of Westminster Abbey was seen as “unexpected” by some experts after the trouble the now settled lawsuit caused.Keep up to date with all the latest news stories. by signing up for one of Daily Star's free newsletters here.Joe Little,

Prince Andrew will attend the memorial service for Prince Philip next week, according to his spokesman.The scandal-hit Duke of York would be making his first appearance in public since his out-of-court settlement with Virginia Giuffre last month.Andrew, who is Philip and the Queen's third son, is planning to visit the event at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday March 29.He previously attended his father's funeral in April 2021.The Queen is also expected to to be at the service next week, and will be joined by some of Philip’s friends, colleagues and members of organisations he supported.The decision regarding Andrew’s attendance was understood to depend on whether she considered the service a family event or an official engagement.The potential for Andrew's appearance to detract from the occasion was also considered.The Duke of York can no longer use the title HRH in an official capacity after being stripped of his titles in January following sexual abuse allegations made against him by Virginia Giuffre.The decision was made less than 24 hours after it emerged Andrew was to face a a civil trial over allegations he had sex with Virginia Giuffre when she was 17 – a claim he has repeatedly denied.The case was dropped in February after an estimated £7million settlement was reached.Andrew has always fervently denied all the allegations and his lawyers agreed that some of the settlement sum will go to supporting victims of sexual abuse.A source speaking the Sun suggested that Buckingham Palace officials were trying to find a way of getting the 95-year-old Queen into Westminster Abbey for her late husband's memorial service without being seen.Her Majesty, 95, has recently recovered from Covid, which Prince Charles and Camilla also

Rebel Wilson says Leonardo DiCaprio 'likes them young' as she mocks his dating habits

In one segment of the show, the How To Be Single star made a quip about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.
