Queen Elizabeth II marks a special occasion this year, which she is set to honour in the traditional way! The royal will be giving out medals for her Platinum Jubilee, and as People shares, a source revealed why even those distanced from the royal family have a good chance of receiving them.

Queen expected to give medals to extended royal family

The Queen's jubilees are known to be celebratory events full of pomp and circumstance. In 2012, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 60 years as Britain's monarch with the Diamond Jubilee, and now the Platinum Jubilee marks another decade of her assuming the throne. This means that next month, she will give out special medals.

Emergency services and military personnel receive these commemorative jubilee medals, along with those close to the royal family. And while immediate members of the royal family, such as Duchess Kate, Prince William, Duchess Camilla, and Prince Charles, will be given the honour without question, it is less certain for other royals.

"In common with previous jubilees, it is likely that wider members of the royal family would receive the Platinum Jubilee," the royal insider explained. This means that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should be awarded the medals, despite leaving their positions as senior royals. Even Prince Andrew, who the queen recently stripped of his royal patronages and roles, is expected to be included.
