The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear are said to have told the Queen they will keep a low profile and only stick to official engagements during the upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Meghan and Harry won’t pay any “surprise” visit elsewhere that could overshadow the royal celebrations while they are in full swing, according to the Telegraph.

They are widely expected to take part in the service of thanksgiving held at St Paul’s Cathedral on June 3 and they are likely to attend other events open to the family.

This comes amid claims from sources that the monarch has “ordered the family to come together” to celebrate her historic milestone, and to do so with “no dramas” that could overshadow the main events.

This trip will be particularly poignant for the Sussexes as it will give them the chance to introduce in person their daughter Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana to the Queen.

Her Majesty is said to be “looking forward” to seeing her great-grandchildren Lili and Archie Harrison.

    The Duke and Duchess are travelling back to the UK to mark the Queen’s historic 70th year on the throne.

    Their children Lilibet and Archie will be with them, giving a chance to royals to meet Meghan and Harry’s daughter in person for the first time.

    During the weekend of celebrations, Meghan and Harry are expected to take part in the service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on June 3 and have been tipped to also be at some of the other engagements open to non-working members of the Firm.
