ITV's Lorraine Kelly pours scorn on Prince Harry as he's 'set to miss Queen's Jubilee to play polo'

LORRAINE Kelly reacted with shock at the news Prince Harry may miss the Queen's Jubilee celebrations to play polo.

Revealing the latest story about the Duke of Sussex, the ITV star added: "What? What? What?"

She said: "This morning it's being reported Prince Harry will miss the Queen's big Jubilee celebrations in the summer because of playing polo.

"He's got a polo schedule in America. What? What? What?"

A royal expert in the studio replied: "It does appear that Prince Harry has signed up to play a full season with a polo team in California.

"Now, is this the clearest indication whether he will or won't be at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations."

Lorraine added: "It's a niche sport it's fair to say. I don't think anybody would be upset if he missed for such a huge occasion as this Jubilee. Surely – surely, surely.

"It's that iconic balcony photograph, that's what they want. If Prince Harry won't be there presumably Meghan won't be there and the kids."

The 37-year-old prince, who has played polo all his life, has joined a team with his good friend and sportsman, Nacho Figueras.

Last night it emerged he will play the entirety of the polo season with his professional chums, according to royal reporter Omid Scobie.

One of the fixtures will clash with his gran's celebrations – with the Cheval Athletics USPA Intra-Circuit tournament due to take place June 3-19.

It means the Duke could miss joining his family on Buckingham Palace's balcony among other major celebrations.

On Thursday, June 2, the day before the tournament is due to begin, a parade will take place, to honour The Queen's birthday.

Members of the Royal Family will join 1,400 soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians, parading down The Mall on horseback, while The Queen watches from the Buckingham Palace balcony.
