Prince Andrew will not appear at Trooping the Color today – while Meghan and Harry secured a last-minute spot.

The Duke of York, who stepped down from royal duties following a sex scandal, can still attend a Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral with family members tomorrow.

Andrew denied the allegations against him and later reached an out-of-court settlement with his accuser. The settlement is not an admission of guilt.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will watch Thursday’s parade from a balcony above Horse Guards Parade before returning to their Windsor home, while others can join the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Her appearance follows the monarch encouraging everyone to revel in her Platinum Jubilee celebrations over the special bank holiday weekend, stating, “I know many happy memories will be made on these festive occasions.”
