Meghan And Harry's Silence Over The Latest Royal Family News Is Deafening

Queen Elizabeth II celebrated an amazing anniversary over the weekend. The monarch, 95, kicked off her Platinum Jubilee year by commemorating seven decades on the throne. 

The milestone is a huge one, and Elizabeth marked the occasion by sharing a public statement, per ABC News.

"February 6, marks the 70th anniversary of my Accession in 1952," Elizabeth stated (via Express). "It is a day that, even after 70 years, I still remember as much for the death of my father, King George VI, as for the start of my reign."

She added: "As we mark this anniversary, it gives me pleasure to renew to you the pledge I gave in 1947 that my life will always be devoted to your service."

Meanwhile, many other members of the royal family — such as Elizabeth's oldest son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles — spoke out in celebration of the anniversary (via BBC). 

While the likes of Prince William and Kate Middleton took to social media to recognize the queen's ascension by retweeting messages from the official royal family Twitter account, there were two major members of the royal family who stayed quiet on Elizabeth's special day.

Meghan and Harry didn't publicly honor the queen's milestone anniversary

According to Express, Queen Elizabeth was surrounded by a lot of love and support as she celebrated her 70th year on the throne on Feb. 6, 2022. 

However, her grandson Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, stayed very quiet on social media throughout the day, not publicly recognizing the monarch for her seven decades of service to the firm. 

They often speak out about issues via Instagram and Twitter, as well as their Archwell website, however, they stayed silent during the queen's anniversary.

While it was originally expected that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would return to the U.K. to celebrate the queen's Platinum Jubilee later this year, there are now questions surrounding their return. 

The prince has been outspoken through his representatives about not feeling safe in the U.K. with his family due to the fact that he was stripped of his right to hire police protection when he exited the royal family in 2020. Harry is even pursuing legal action, and it seems that Sussexes' visit is in jeopardy if they can't find a solution to their security issues.

It remains to be seen if Harry and Meghan will find a way to honor Elizabeth during her Platinum Jubilee. However, their silence seems to speak volumes about how they feel at the moment. 

Meanwhile, royal expert Russell Myers says that there's a good chance Harry will return for the Jubilee celebrations with or without his family.
