Queen Elizabeth invited Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to the Balmoral Castle in Scotland but they declined her invitation. Every summer, the queen together with Prince Philip invites a few royal relatives to Balmoral Castle on vacation.
Following the tradition, the queen invites royal family members to pay her and Prince Philip visits. Prince William has been there, Kate Middleton has been there, but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry declined their invite this year.
According to People, Meghan and Harry have declined Queen Elizabeth’s invitation to Balmoral Castle this year, however it was because of a more pressing projects to take care of. In addition to taking care of their 4-month old son, baby Archie Harrison, they planned on royal tour of Africa, the preparation of Harry’s eco-friendly travel initiative, Travalyst, the launch of Meghan’s capsule collection with Misha Nonoo for Smart Works, and Meghan’s surprise trip to support Serena Williams at the US Open, all within this month.
With everything going on right now, a trip to Balmoral Castle doesn’t seem to be very practical at the moment! The royals hope to honor the invite next year.
