It also remains to be seen whether they will be able to spend time with the Queen during their time in the UK. The monarch is currently on her summer break at Balmoral, having travelled to Scotland in July.

Prince Harry will no doubt hope to spend time with the Queen

The Queen initially stays at Craigowan Lodge, and then moves to Balmoral after the castle closes to the public on 2 August. Traditionally, she will stay in Scotland until September or October before resuming her royal duties.

Scotland is considered to be one of the Queen's favourite places; she and her late husband Prince Philip even spent part of their honeymoon at Birkhall hunting lodge, located on the estate, in 1947.

She is usually visited by members of her family over the summer, including the Cambridges, the Wessex family and granddaughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Eugenie once said 'Granny' is most happy in the Highlands, revealing how the royal clan like to spend their time together there.

"Walks, picnics, dogs – a lot of dogs, there's always dogs – and people coming in and out all the time,” she said. “It's a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa, for us to come and see them up there; where you just have room to breathe and run."
