Harry and Meghan have been ‘uninvited to the state reception at Buckingham Palace’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were ‘uninvited’ to a state reception for world leaders and foreign royals tomorrow evening, it was reported last night.

It is thought the couple received an invitation to the event, hosted by King Charles and the Queen Consort, earlier in the week.

But Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are now unlikely to attend after officials at Buckingham Palace insisted the reception was for working royals only, it is understood.

It follows an apparent U-turn over Harry’s right to wear military uniform despite being a non-working royal.
