Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are set to return to the United Kingdom this June to attend Queen Elizabeth‘s Platinum Jubilee celebrations—and they’re taking their kids with them.

“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,” a spokesperson for the couple tells

The trip will mark the first time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will publicly arrive in the United Kingdom since the couple stepped back as senior members of the royal family in early 2020. And while their three-year-old son, Archie, will be returning to his place of birth, the visit will be 11-month-old Lilibet’s first time in the country.

Today, a spokesperson for Queen Elizabeth II confirmed the official guest list for royal family members who may attend the traditional balcony appearance during the Platinum Jubilee.

In a statement to BAZAAR, the spokesperson says, “After careful consideration, The Queen has decided this year’s traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd June will be limited to Her Majesty and those Members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of The Queen.”

The decision means that Harry and Meghan are not invited to appear on the balcony, and neither are other non-working royals including Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.

Those who will join Her Majesty on the balcony include Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, and Prince William, Duchess Kate, and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
