Lorraine Kelly says Prince Harry should come to the Queen's jubilee
Lorraine Kelly has said that Prince Harry should attend the Queen's platinum jubilee celebration next month.
Among the events due to take place between 2-5 June are a live concert from Buckingham Palace and a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral.
While Harry has yet to confirm whether he will be attending the weekend celebrations, he has previously pledged to play polo fixtures in California on the same dates.

Kelly addressed the prospect of Harry missing the jubilee celebrations of his grandmother who has reigned as Queen since 1952.
Kelly said: "It’s a niche sport. I don’t think anybody would be upset if he missed [the tournament] for such a huge occasion as this jubilee, surely."
She added: "Its that iconic balcony photograph, that’s what [the Royal Family] want, I guess. Prince Harry should come."
Kelly has previously addressed Harry missing Prince Philip's funeral to attend the Invictus Games: "It’s really a shame that he can’t be there with his family because I think that would build bridges so, so much."
George Ezra has been confirmed to perform at the Platinum Party concert that is due to take place at Buckingham Palace on 4 June and be broadcast on the BBC.
No other names for the concert have yet been announced but the BBC have promised the line-up will feature "pop stars to rock royalty to opera singers".
A statement from the broadcaster also said the show will feature "stars from film, TV and the stage will also tell the story and celebrate some of the most significant cultural moments from the Queen's reign".
Five thousand pairs of tickets will be available via a ballot with additional tickets to be made available for various charities.
To celebrate the Queen's diamond jubilee ten years ago, stars such as Robbie Williams, Brian May and Elton John performed.
