"I think it would just send a good message. Forget about the previous comments and statements that have been said. This would be the Queen saying 'you are my family,'" she noted to The Express. "And I think that would be very important."

Elizabeth will be the first British monarch to have a platinum jubilee, which marks her 70 years of service.

"There will be year-long Platinum Jubilee celebrations throughout the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world as communities and people come together to celebrate The Queen’s historic reign," stated Buckingham Palace. "Throughout the year, Her Majesty and Members of the Royal Family will travel around the country to undertake a variety of engagements to mark this historic occasion."

The festivties will culminate in June, when the Trooping of the Colour parade takes place.

Though nothing has been confirmed, a source previously told The Sun that the Duke of Sussex does want to be present for the occasion, especially since Elizabeth has yet to meet his daughter, Lilibet, who was born on June 4.

"Harry wants to be there. It is already causing a headache and is going to be very awkward," shared the source. "Where will they be positioned if they turn up? What events can they attend? Will we put them on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the flypast?"

"This is a celebration for the Queen’s 70 years of service to the nation and should not be overshadowed," the source declared. "There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan."
