HomeKit invitation stuck on pending/admin privileges revoked

Hey everyone,

I'm having issues with HomeKit. I'm attempting to add my Philip Hue lights and set up multiple rooms. However, when I go to invite my partner the invitation is just stuck on pending; it also gets stuck on pending when my partner tries to invite me (see attached pic), been stuck like that for hours.

Also, I set everything up, my lights etc, as admin/home owner, and then randomly at some point I seem to lose admin privileges in Homekit and I can't figure out why? It seems to think I am a guest, even though I set it up as an admin/home owner?

Does anyone have any suggestions on to why this is happening? I'm running the latest version of iOS and my partner is running the latest beta version.
