Prince Harry's Jubilee weekend plan has frustrated many royal fans who were hoping that the Duke of Sussex would be returning to the UK in order to spend time with the Queen.

  • It has now been reported by royal commentators that the Duke will be busyy with a sporting event in California during the weekend. 
  • However, it has still not confirmed by the Royal Family whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be in attendance.

The Queen has just been delivered sad news as Her Majesty faces new disappointment in Jubilee year, and now it appears that she may have to prepare herself once again for some bad news.

It appears that one of the Queen's grandchildren, Prince Harry, may not be in attendance at the Platinum Jubilee because of a sporting fixture.

It was revealed by royal commentator, Omid Scobie, announced on Twitter that the Prince may be occupied at a polo event in California during the jubilee weekend. 

"Prince Harry will play the entire 12 goal polo season at Santa Barbara with his #LosPadres teammates (@nachofigueras, @kekomagrini, Juan Guerrero)"

The author of Finding Freedom then added the dates of various events as he said the Folded Hills Pope Challenge, would take place on May 6-15, the Lisle Nixon Cup would run from May 20-29, and the Cheval Athletics USPA Intra-Circuit, will take place from June 3-19.

Royal fans didn't take long to put the dates together and realized that the Cheval Athletics USPA Intra-Circuit, which will take place from June 3-19, will directly conflict with the Queen's jubilee scheduled for June 2-5.

"How to say you're not going to the Jubilee without actually saying you're not going to the Jubilee," said one fan.

"Welp, that settles the question of if they'll come and overshadow the Queen or make the jubbly too dangerous," said another.

"Harry playing polo in the US will absolutely upstage the Queen," said yet another commenter.

However not all fans were frustrated, and many were pleased that the royal was involved in a charity sports event. "Amazing news. Los Padres team will be playing charity polo helping others and doing good for many. Looking forward to cheering them on," said one fan.

"Way to go Prince Harry! Live your best life and don't be used by anyone for clout! Looking forward to these matches. Brilliant!" added another.

Omid also added later that this announcement didn't necessarily confirm that Prince Harry would not be attending the jubilee. "*For clarity, these are simply the listed dates of the tournaments, not the dates of their matches. Don't read into it too much!" said the commentator.

It still remains uncertain if Prince Harry will be going to this jubilee celebration. Previously when asked about attendance during an interview with Today, the royal has stated, “I don't know yet. There's lots of things: security issues and everything else. So this is what I'm trying to do, trying to make it possible that, you know, I can get my kids to meet her [the Queen].”
