It is believed the family-of-four will stay at Frogmore Cottage, Harry and Meghan's UK residence. The home was where the couple spent their final period as working royals before moving to north America, and it was recently reported that they extended the lease on a 12-month rolling arrangement.

Frogmore, a Grade-II listed property owned by the Crown Estate, was a gift from Harry's grandmother, the Queen, and is reportedly being used by Princess Eugenie and her husband, who are said to be out of the country.

Meanwhile, during the four-day weekend, the monarch is expected to spend time at some stage with the Sussexes. The trip is extra special since little Lili will celebrate her first birthday on Saturday, but it is not yet known when she will meet her great-grandmother in person for the first time.

Royal sources have stated that the Queen is no longer attending the Epsom Derby on Saturday given her mobility issues, with the Princess Royal taking her place. As such, there is speculation that she might finally get to meet her great-grandchild.
