Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have arrived in the UK ahead of the Queen’s highly anticipated Platinum Jubilee celebrations, according to reports.
Meghan, 40, hasn’t been in the UK since leaving her husband’s home-country in early 2020, while Harry’s first time back on British soil was last year for his late grandfather’s Prince Philip’s funeral.
While almost-three year old Archie was born in England, 11 month old Lilibet hasn’t been to the UK yet and will be meeting her grandfather Prince Charles and great-grandmother the Queen for the first time this week.
They were not pictured getting off the plane, but it was reported by Page Six the pair touched down in London with their children and a small group of staffers in tow.

Ahead of their arrival, it was said that the Duchess of Sussex was “nervous” to make a return.
Royal author Duncan Larcombe, who wrote Prince Harry: The Inside Story, told OK! that Meghan will feel "nervous" ahead of her trip but having her children with her will be "quite a good distraction" from any in depth conversations with the Royals.
Meghan's husband Harry has been embroiled in a rift with his dad Prince Charles and brother Prince William for a number of months, although it was recently reported Harry and Wills have been having weekly video calls recently.
Duncan told OK!: "Having Lili with them when they return for the Jubilee is probably quite a good distraction. It will all be about the kids and kids' talk because you have to hope they wouldn't have long, drawn out, heart-to-heart chats in front of their children."
Meghan and Harry will stay at Frogmore Cottage during their stay, which is said to have “bittersweet memories” for the pair as it’s their old home and where their son Archie spent the early months of his life before the move to the US.
Her Majesty's Jubilee celebrations will begin with Trooping the Colour on Thursday, but it is currently unknown what role, if any, Meghan and Harry will play at the event.
It has been confirmed that they will not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony, as the Queen has made sure it is only working royals who will be there with her.
Ahead of the celebrations, a statement that announced the royal couple will not feature on the balcony read: "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."
