Following months of speculation, Buckingham Palace confirmed Prince Harry will return to the UK, but Meghan Markle, Archie and Lilibet will all remain in the US.

Harry will join his brother William and his wife Kate, the Princess of Wales, alongside their eldest son Prince George, who will comprise one of the Pages of Honour who form part of the procession through the Nave of Westminster Abbey.

Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’s attendance is yet to be confirmed but they are very much expected to be there.

The King’s siblings, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew are also expected to attend alongside their partners but Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, did not receive an invitation to the ceremony.

The couple’s children Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie will attend, however, alongside Princess Anne’s children Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall and their spouses.
