A royal expert said the Queen will try to forgive “the more rebellious” members of her family.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey sparked waves of backlash from many royalists.

Her bombastic claims about being part of the royal family led to questions about how the family would interact during the anniversary celebrations.

But royal expert Catherine Butchert says Her Majesty will try to forgive and forget.

Speaking from St Paul’s Cathedral today, she said the Queen’s “strong faith” influenced her reaction to being reunited with Harry and Meghan.

She told Metro.co.uk: “As far as I can tell there has been a lot of harmony so far.

“The Queen has said in the past that even the more rebellious members of her family are dearly loved family members.

“She’s someone who likes to include members of her family and not push them away.”

Ms Butchert, who wrote the book Faith in Our Queen, also referenced a handshake between Her Majesty and Martin McGuinness in 2012.

The former IRA leader is believed to have been the commander who ordered the assassination of the Queen’s cousin, Lord Mountbatten.

Ms Butchert said: “The Queen has demonstrated an ability to forgive throughout her life.

“She once reached out to shake hands with someone who may have been involved in the murder of her cousin.

“She is someone who has tried to bring about reconciliation between nations in her role in the Commonwealth, but also as a mother has tried to include members of her family who others feel should be marginalized.”

The author added that the show of support for the Sussexes today was “amazing”.

She added: “The atmosphere today was amazing, especially after two years of Covid I think people are just so excited to come out and celebrate.

“This is a formal celebration.

“But the Queen is also someone who has her faith and is a regular Bible student, so even though she wasn’t there, Thanksgiving service is very personal to her as well.”

Royal biographer Omid Scobie also shared his thoughts today on the current atmosphere within the royal family.

He said there was “equal jubilation” for the arrival of the Cambridges and the Sussexes.

While her relationship with the royal family is “not necessarily back on track,” the public reception has been positive, he added.
