Duran Duran star Simon Le Bon has spoken about ” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ” absence from the music video for the band’s new song, following the release of the their new album, FUTURE PAST, which celebrates 40 years since their first hit. Speaking about creating the film for hit ANNIVERSARY, the singer told how they created an imaginary party to celebrate the milestone, which was attended by an array of lookalike A-list stars. While the video heavily features a lookalike of the Queen, the singer, 63, addressed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s lack of appearance of sorts at the faux bash.
So they’re not going to make it tonight

Speaking about filming, the singer told how the fake party was inclusive of all lookalike celebrities.
Simon said: “Like all Duran Duran parties, we invite everybody.”
However, he went on to address the Duke and Duchess of Sussex not being mentioned in any way.
“You’d hear someone saying, ‘Oh I’m afraid Meghan’s broken her ankle and Harry’s got a cold, so they’re not going to make it tonight’,” he told Sky News.

The video ends with the A-list lookalikes jumping into an outdoor pool as the Queen falls asleep inside the luxury house.
Despite the lookalike of the monarch featuring multiple times through the video, Harry and Meghan do not.
In 2018 Simon’s eldest daughter Amber Le Bon was one of Harry and Meghan’s wedding guests on their big day.
The model couldn’t resist sharing her favourite moments from one of the biggest royal events of the decade to her Instagram.
Amber smiled as she posed for an outdoor snap, captioning the picture: “Pretty in pink… Saturday night sunset – rose quartz vibes bringing love,” as the event’s guests milled around in the background.
Following the main event at Windsor Castle, Harry and Meghan went on to host 200 guests at their intimate reception at Frogmore Hall.
