To mark her Platinum Jubilee year in 2022, Her Majesty the Queen will award Platinum Jubilee medals to some members of the Royal Family. Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the 95-year-old monarch will award the medals to a number of her relatives including those who no longer or have never undertaken official engagements on her behalf.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appear on the list of those set to receive the award, according to the Daily Express’s royal correspondent Richard Palmer.
Despite stepping away from the monarchy in early 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will both still receive the honour alongside other acting members of the Firm.
Among those who will also receive the award is Prince Andrew, who is currently involved in a civil lawsuit in New York, and his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
A source told Mr Palmer that the award “is purely commemorative”.
A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: “A wide number of members of the Royal Family will receive the Platinum Jubilee medal in line with the previous two jubilees.”
Prince Harry, 37 already has two medals from his grandmother’s Golden and Diamond Jubilees.
