HELLO! Online's Royal Correspondent Danielle Stacey says: "It's likely that we'll see the Sussexes return for the royal wedding, as Harry is very close with his cousin Princess Beatrice. The couple attended her sister Princess Eugenie's wedding in October 2018, so I'm sure they wouldn't miss it for the world. Beatrice and Eugenie were also guests on Harry and Meghan's big day two years ago.

"Meghan won't be in the immediate wedding party and like sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, she'll have a low-key role, just like the pair did at Eugenie's nuptials in Windsor. It'll give the royal family the opportunity to have a catch-up, especially given the intimate setting. The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace seats only 150 guests and in line with Beatrice and Edoardo's wishes, it'll be a much more private affair.

"While it would be lovely to see baby Archie have a starring role in the bridal party, he'll have only just turned one by that point, so he's still a little too young for pageboy duties! But he'll have plenty of playmates on the day, in the form of his royal cousins, George, Charlotte and Louis."

The Sussexes are expected to make an appearance at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on Monday 9 March. According to The Sunday Times, this will be the final round of official engagements for the couple, and they will then return to Canada. Harry and Meghan attended the service last year and it marked one of the Duchess' final engagements before she went on maternity leave to have baby Archie.
