The Royal Family Is Thriving Without Harry and Meghan

Few people do polite passive aggression better than we Brits.

It's why Meghan and Harry were invited to Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee.

At the Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral on day two of the celebrations,

their new place in the pecking order became apparent

they were with the royal equivalent of the B-list, sitting with the daughters of disgraced uncle

Prince Andrew, and waiting with the hoi polloi for the star turns of Harry's grandmother, father and brother.

This past weekend celebrating a woman who, despite her 70 years as our head of state remains an enigma, proved it.

During four days of festivities, millions partied. Even die-hards who would prefer a Republic to the dysfunctional,

not-terribly-bright family of Germanic extraction we are told to scrape and bow to.
