- Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have confirmed Archie and Lilibet will come to the UK with them when they return next month.
- This is exciting news for the royal family, many of whom are yet to meet the couple's daughter, Lilibet.
- This royal news (opens in new tab) comes after fresh disappointment for the Queen as the Palace confirmed she will miss ALL garden parties this year (opens in new tab).
After months of speculation and an olive branch from the Queen (opens in new tab), Harry and Meghan have confirmed that they will be attending the Platinum Jubilee (opens in new tab) with their children, Archie and Lilibet (opens in new tab).
The Platinum Jubilee marks the Queen’s 70th year on the throne and will see celebrations take place from the 2nd to the 5th of June. The special milestone will bring a four-day bank holiday, a special Jubilee concert (opens in new tab), and pubs staying open until 1 am!
It was unclear whether the Sussexes would be in attendance after ongoing reports of a rift between the couple and the Firm (opens in new tab).
However, now a spokesperson for the pair has said, “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honored to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children.”
The occasion will mark the first time Harry and Meghan have returned to the UK with their children, since stepping back as senior royals (opens in new tab) in 2019.
This will no doubt be exciting news for the royal family, as several members are still yet to meet the couple’s second child, Lilibet.
There were even fears that the Queen would never meet her after Harry skipped Prince Philip’s memorial over security concerns. This is thankfully not the case, as the family will now travel from LA to join in with the Jubilee festivities. Meaning the Queen can finally meet her great-grandaughter, with whom she shares her special nickname.
This will also be the first time Harry’s father, Prince Charles will meet Lilibet. He has previously expressed his ‘incredible sadness (opens in new tab)’ over not having met his youngest grandchild.
