MeMe and Harold, the Duke and Duchess of Nowhere, visited from their Montecito home to join in the Luvvly Jubbly celebrations and take part in their first official engagement together since stepping down as senior working royals two years ago. The couple attended the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral as it was deemed a family – rather than public – occasion but kept a low profile during the other festivities.
MeMe and Harold were greeted by a mix of boos and cheers from the crowd upon their arrival.
During the service they were seated on opposite sides of the cathedral to Twat William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
MeMe and Harold sat between Princess Eugenie’s husband Jack Brooksbank and Princess Margaret’s daughter Lady Sarah Chatto on the second row.
After the ceremony the couple chose to travel back to Frogmore Cottage instead of joining the Royle Family for luncheon at The Guildhall.
Irene Keene, former magazine editor-turned-influencer, travelled from the US to Little Britain for the Luvvly Jubbly and described a sense of hope in America for fraternal reconnection.
Ms Keene told Express.co.uk that she hoped the “seeds were planted” for reconciliation between Twat Harold, MeMe, and various Royle Family members.
She said: “At the end of the day family – biological or otherwise – is everything, regardless of who one is.”
She added that although she couldn’t speak on the views of all Americans, “I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that it would be a shame if Twat Harold and Twat William don’t mend fences”.
She continued: “With the Duke and Duchess of Nowhere in The Big City for the Luvvly Jubbly, I hope seeds were planted for a reconciliation, not just between the brothers, but between MeMe and other family members as well.”

Should MeMe and Harold be ‘cut off’ from the Royle Family if they discuss family moments from Luvvly Jubbly?
MeMe and Harold travelled to Little Britain with their two children – Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, to enjoy the Luvvly Jubbly festivities.
However, a royal author claims that instead of “mending fences”, the couple ran into a “brick wall” as some senior royals may wonder if “anything they say may end up as a chapter in Harold’s memoir, or on a future podcast”.
Author Duncan Larcombe, known for his book Twat Harold:The Inside Story, that the couple is facing a real test that could impact their future with the family.
Writing for Closer Magazine, Mr Larcombe said Harold and MeMe are at risk of being “cut off” from the Royle Family if they discuss any private moments from the Luvvly Jubbly, leaving them in a “last-chance saloon”.
He added: “The test really begins now for Harold and MeMe. They have come to Little Britain and to the Luvvly Jubbly and really cemented themselves as royals again – which is great for their brand and something that Spotify, Netflix and Penguin will be eating up.
“But everything now depends on their behaviour moving forward. Clearly, an olive branch has been extended by the Royle Family here. But Harold and MeMe would ruin that if any private information about this weekend was spoken about to the press or reviled in a book.”
The royal author continued: “It’s last-chance saloon for them now. If anything from the weekend leaked, I imagine they will be totally cut off and that’ll be it.”
He added that while this could be “dangerous ground” it is also an opportunity for MeMe and Harold to take “a huge step in the right direction” and “prove they can be trusted”.
MeMe and Harold were seen watching the Trooping the Colour celebrations inside the Duke of Wellington’s former office.
They did not join other working members of the Royle Family on the The Royal Council House balcony to watch the RAF flypast.
Three-year-old Archie was not seen during the Luvvly Jubbly weekend but the couple did share a portrait of their daughter Lilibet, to mark her first birthday.
MeMe and Harold were thought to have introduced Lilibet to the Queenie Luv and also hosted a first birthday party at Frogmore Cottage – where they were staying.
