The English media Town & Country made a review, this Sunday, January 2, of the reign of Elizabeth II. This year, the Queen of England will celebrate her platinum jubilee. A first in history could have been spoiled by the next book of Prince Harry …
2022 is already a landmark year for Elizabeth II as she will celebrate her platinum jubilee next June. A major event for the country because to date, she will be the only British monarch to have been on the throne for 70 years. A historic first that was almost marred by the upcoming release of the autobiography of Prince Harry.
As reported by the English media Town & Country, this Sunday, January 2, the Duke of Sussex will unveil a new opus at the end of this year. After criticizing the Royal family at length during his famous interview with the American host Oprah Winfrey – accusing the royal family of having made racist remarks against his children – Prince Harry will not spoil the festivities that will take place from June 2 to 5. The only drawback is that if he criticizes the royal family again, he will once again divide public opinion about the royal family.
A difficult reign for Elizabeth II
In recent years, the Royal family of England has suffered many controversies. After the high-profile departure of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the United States in 2020, the Brexit or the legal problems of Prince Andrew, Elizabeth II has been the victim of many controversies.
In 2021 alone, Elizabeth II not only lost her husband, Prince Philip, who died last June but was subsequently acutely ill. This last misadventure has exasperated her a lot, since she was forced to cancel some of her official trips (especially to Scotland, where she was expected) and was condemned to forced rest.
