Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have arrived in the UK ahead of the long weekend of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

They will be joined by their children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, who turns one on Saturday, the Mirror understands.

It is the first time that the couple’s daughter, who is named after the monarch, is visiting her father’s homeland and the trip will mark her first time meeting her royal family.

Earlier this month, a spokesman for the couple said they were “excited” and “honored” to attend the celebrations.

It is the first time the Sussexes have returned to the UK as a family since leaving the US – although the couple paid a secret visit to the Queen last month when they traveled to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

While they are here, it will be Lilibet’s first birthday – and so far she has not met the Queen, her grandfather Prince Charles or any other members of the royal family.

The anniversary celebrations kick off tomorrow with Trooping the Color – but it’s not yet known what role Harry and Meghan will play in the event.

However, it has been confirmed that they will not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the parade for the traditional RAF flypast, as the Queen has restricted her balcony appearances to working royals only.

Joining the Queen on the balcony for trooping are Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

Also appearing on the historic occasion are Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as well as the Wessexes’ children, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.

On Friday, however, Harry and Meghan are expected to join the Queen and the rest of the royal family for a service at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Corresponding The TelegraphAs well as Harry and Meghan, who are expected to attend the service at St Paul’s, Prince Andrew is also expected to be among those attending.

This means all of the Queen’s children and grandchildren could be in attendance at the event – and reportedly some of her great-grandchildren as well.

The youngest royals who could be there include Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Mia Tindall, although Harry and Meghan’s two children, Archie and Lilibet, are unlikely to be there given their young ages.

Meanwhile, reports have also indicated that the couple will finally officially introduce Lilibet to the Queen on Saturday, on her first birthday, at a possible party.

Saturday is the Epsom Derby – an event the Queen often attends but it has been reported she may no longer plan to go.

The 96-year-old monarch, who suffers from mobility issues, is said to want to calm down during her milestone celebrations, with her daughter Princess Anne replacing her at the racecourse instead, the Sunday Times reported.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment, saying the Queen’s attendance at events would only be confirmed closer to the time.

However, The sun has reported that Her Majesty will instead see her great-granddaughter, whose name honors the monarch.

You can also take part in the anniversary competition taking place on Sunday – although again this has not been confirmed.
