The Windsor clan is probably enjoying the brief respite in criticism brought about by the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Of course, it hasn't been all fawning praise for the royals, and there are still daily reminders that the institution in general and certain members in particular are not very well-liked in the UK or abroad.

To the surprise of many, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were invited to the Jubilee by the monarch herself.

Meghan and Harry visited Elizabeth last month, and she personally extended an invitation to the couple shortly thereafter.

"There was a loud reaction from the crowd to the arrival of Harry and Meghan: a mix of boos and cheers," tweeted royal journalist Richard Palmer.

"Our correspondent outside says what sounded like a mixed reaction had turned into a clear cheer by the time the Sussexes had reached the top of the steps," he added

But hey, it could have been worse for Meghan and Harry -- numerous onlookers say that Prime Minister Boris Johnson was met with a chorus of enthusiastic jeers and more than a few four-letter words.

And in a move that's either gloriously calculating or humiliatingly petty -- depending on whose side you're on -- it seems that Kate has not been invited to Lilibet's birthday party. So yeah, the British tabloid press will be covering the feud between Meghan and Kate for about the next 50 years.
