  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will soon arrive in the UK with their two children.
  • The royal couple is expected to attend the service of thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral on Friday.
  • They will also likely participate in a carriage ride as part of the Trooping the Colour parade.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will soon arrive in the UK with their two children, Archie and Lilibet, to celebrate the queen's 70 years on the throne. 

While the royal couple are no longer senior members of the royal family and, as a result, will not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony for Trooping the Colour, they will reunite with Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royals for another Platinum Jubilee event.

Harry and Meghan are expected to attend the service of thanksgiving at St. Paul's Cathedral on Friday, 3 June, according to The Telegraph.

Their children, however, are believed to be too young for the outing.

Although the couple will not watch the flypast on the palace balcony, Meghan and Prince Harry may appear at Trooping the Colour in another capacity, such as taking part in a carriage ride as part of the parade, People reports.

And that's not all. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will likely attend other events throughout the weekend as well.

On Saturday, members of the royal family will attend the Derby at Epsom, followed by the Platinum Party at the Palace in the evening, with performances by Queen, Adam Lambert, Diana Ross and more.

The four-day celebration will wrap with the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on Sunday.
