Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 'teed up to present the Best Picture Oscar' next week

Date:


Prince Harry and Meghan were said to have been approached at the end of last year to take the stage at the awards ceremony. However, it is not yet known whether they have agreed to attend the event. The Oscars will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 27.

This is just two days before the memorial service in London for Prince Philip.

Referring to the complication surrounding Prince Harry and the memorial service in London, a source speaking to The Sun newspaper said: “It would be seen as a final kick in the teeth for the royal family if he did.

“He’s too nervous to fly to London without police protection.

“But happy to stand up in front of a huge live audience at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The news comes at a time when Prince Harry is taking the UK Government to court over its decision not to provide full police protection when he visits Britain.

His lawyers said he does “not feel safe” without police protection.

Daily Mail royal editor Rebecca English said: “Within a couple of minutes of announcing that he would not be attending the Duke of Edinburgh’s service of thanksgiving, Harry’s team also announced that he would be attending the Invictus Games in the Hague in April, just a few weeks later.

“This has obviously surprised a lot of people… to travel to Europe to go to that, but not to his grandfather’s memorial service has, to use a well-worn phrase, got people’s goat.

“They feel it is a slap in the face to the Queen and, again, another PR disaster as far as many people in the UK are concerned.”
