The British Queen blows out 96 candles on Thursday, and the royal palace traditionally celebrates this with a new image. In the photo, the head of state is flanked by two white ponies, a typical British breed of horse. But the happy event takes a sharp advantage again.

Not only is Queen Elizabeth II now 96, but this summer she will also be on the throne for at least 70 years. This makes her the longest serving head of state in British history. But despite all those festivities and the new image, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have overshadowed events once again.
For example, the prince, who made the decision two years ago to leave the royal family with his family, once again gave a high-profile interview with NBC TV. In it, Harry mentioned, among other things, his good relationship with his grandmother. He revealed that the two had a lot of secret conversations: “She told me things she couldn’t share with anyone else.”
Speaking about his recent visit to the Queen, he said, “I just want to make sure she is well looked after and protected at all times. She has to surround herself with the right people.”
These are false statements with the royal family and staff. “Harry is a loose cannon,” says British royal watcher Penny Junor. Royal Palace employees are not satisfied with the statements. They find it unworldly and testify to unseen arrogance. But the royal family is still terrified of what Harry will say on television in the weeks, months and even years to come.”
It is currently unknown if Harry and his family will attend the British Queen’s Jubilee this summer.
