The Sussexes’ attendance at the Platinum Jubilee was confirmed earlier this month following intense speculation.

A spokeswoman for the couple said: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children.”

It will be the first time Harry and Meghan have brought their family to the UK since leaving for the US.

It is not known which parts of the four-day weekend they will make an appearance.

They will not appear on Buckingham Palace’s balcony during Trooping the Colour on Thursday June 2 after the Queen limited the moment to working royals only.

Harry and Meghan are living in Montecito with Archie, three, and Lili after quitting royal duties in 2020.
