THE Queen hates letting people down. That was one of the strengths of her long reign.
Now she’s being forced into it, it must be both frustrating and annoying.
She doesn’t think she’s old. As for her, she is 96 years young.
But she knows she must start passing on her duties and she has given us clues as to the future.
Her platinum jubilee photo, which shows her in the Victoria Vestibule at Windsor Castle overlooking the statue of King Charles II, was symbolic – an indication that King Charles III will soon be with us.
Such was Thursday’s balcony appearance with her son and heir and his son and heir – the present, the future and the hope of what is to come.
But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are clearly not part of the plan.
At yesterday’s service, they sat on the opposite side of the cathedral from Charles, Camilla, William and Kate.
Harry and Meghan were sandwiched between Princess Eugenie’s husband, Jack Brooksbank, and the Queen’s niece, Lady Sarah Chatto.
In Hollywood, celebrities get annoyed when they don’t have a place of honor in a restaurant.
So sitting behind the Duke of Gloucester, who is 31st in line to Harry’s sixth in line, it must have been teasing.
The Queen doesn’t like it when her family is at loggerheads, although she doesn’t enjoy being taken advantage of either.
When she finally hands down her role to Prince Charles, she knows that unless things change radically, Harry will fulfill his wish to be free.
