With the official festivities for Elizabeth II’s platinum jubilee beginning this Thursday, June 2, Prince Harry, his wife Meghan Markle and their two children arrived at the Windsor estate on Wednesday evening, according to a tweet from British journalist Chris Ship.

It’s official, Prince Harry, his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, Archie (3 years) and Lilibet (11 months) have just arrived in England to attend the official celebrations of Elizabeth II’s platinum jubilee, which will begin as early as this Thursday, June 2. “Prince Harry and Meghan are on the scene. They have arrived at their home on the Windsor estate. This is the first time their daughter Lilibet – the Queen’s great-granddaughter – has come to the UK,” tweeted British ITV News reporter Chris Ship on the evening of this Wednesday, June 1, adding “they will surely attend the Trooping the Colour military rally tomorrow.”

For their stay in the UK, Prince Harry’s family will stay at his former cottage in Frogmore, now occupied by the Duke of Sussex’s cousin Princess Eugenie, as well as her husband Jack Brooksbank and their son August. The former official residence of Meghan and Harry before they moved away from the royal family to the United States, is a ten-minute walk from the Queen’s apartments. “If they stay at Frogmore Cottage, they will be extremely safe there. Maybe that’s why they don’t do anything outside of the main platinum jubilee events because they don’t have protection,” Simon Morgan, a former royal protection officer, told MailOnline on Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to attend the Thanksgiving service with the Queen at St. Paul’s Cathedral this Friday morning, as well as the BBC’s Buckingham Palace party the following evening. They will see Diana Ross, Queen, Andrea Bocelli and Duran Duran among others. Simon Morgan confided that they should normally have armed protection during these events. Due to their withdrawal from their royal duties since February 2020, the couple will not appear on the balcony of the royal palace, as well as Prince Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, in disgrace since the accusations of sexual assault by Virginia Giuffre.

Elizabeth II will meet Lilibet for the first time

According to the tabloid Page Six, Elizabeth is expected to meet her granddaughter Lilibet for the first time since her birth, during the first birthday of Meghan and Harry’s youngest daughter, which will take place this Saturday, June 4. Prince Harry’s brother, Prince William, along with his wife Kate Middleton and their three children, George (8), Charlotte (7) and Louis (4) will also finally get to meet little Lilibet.
