Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to 'renew their vows' in the US - four years after tying the knot at Windsor Castle and there is talk of special 'roles for the kids'.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly planning to 'renew their wedding vows' in the coming weeks - complete with special 'roles for the kids'.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are planning to return to the UK next month for two upcoming engagements, including attending the WellChild Awards, will be based just 'minutes' from Prince William and Kate Middleton.

But they are said to be planning something more special - a vow renewal in front of family and friends.

A source told Heat magazine, "They’re looking at various venues and figuring out the type of ceremony they want, as well as how many guests to invite.

"The grand plan is to turn it into a big family vacation that will also serve as a second honeymoon."

It's understood that the ceremony will be different from the royal wedding at Windsor in 'every aspect' and is said to be something they've wanted to do ever since starting a new life in the US after stepping back as senior working members of the Royal Family.

And after delays caused by the pandemic, and the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, it's understood that they're keen to get things moving again.

It's thought that Meghan's mum Doria will be present along with their children, son Archie, three, and daughter Lilibet, one, plus a handful of US friends like "Katherine and David [Foster], Janina [Gavankar], possibly Priyanka and Nick Jonas."

The source added, "There’ll be roles for the kids and they’ll write their own vows. The grand plan is to turn it into a big family vacation that will also serve as a second honeymoon.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have some big projects lined up in the coming months including his tell-all memoir, and a Netflix docuseries.

We can't wait to see adorable pics of Archie and Lili.
