Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Platinum Jubilee plans are coming together. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will reportedly stay with Princess Eugenie at Frogmore Cottage during their U.K. visit in June 2022 

Harry and Meghan have confirmed they’re attending Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebration

June 2022 marks a big occasion for the royal family. An extended bank holiday is scheduled for Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of her reign. 

After much speculation surrounding whether or not Meghan and Harry would attend, a spokesperson for the couple confirmed, per CNN, that they’ll be there. Not only that but they plan on bringing their two children, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. 

The celebrations, which include the annual Trooping the Colour parade, will be different. This time around Meghan and Harry will not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony alongside other members of the British royal family. 

According to a palace spokesperson, only “royals carrying out official duties” will stand on the balcony. Meaning the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be excluded along with Prince Andrew. 

They are reportedly staying with Princess Eugenie at Frogmore Cottage

It looks like it’s back to Frogmore Cottage for Meghan and Harry. According to a report from The Sun, the couple will be staying at their former U.K. residence during their visit. 

And they won’t have the place to themselves. Frogmore Cottage is currently home to Harry’s cousin, Eugenie. The 32-year-old lives there with her husband Jack Brooksbank and their 1-year-old son, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.

Per The Sun, Harry, Meghan, Archie, and Lili will stay in Frogmore Cottage’s guest rooms while they’re in England. Additionally, “heightened security measures” are reportedly already underway ahead of their arrival. 

Details on Harry and Meghan’s Platinum Jubilee accommodations come after the couple visited Queen Elizabeth in April 2022 ahead of the Invictus Games. If the report is accurate, it won’t be the first time Eugenie’s hosted Harry. The Duke of Sussex stayed at Frogmore Cottage with his cousin in 2021 when he attended Prince Philip’s funeral.

The stay might be brief given Prince Harry’s polo schedule

There’s a chance Harry and Meghan’s Platinum Jubilee visit could be short because of another commitment. The Duke of Sussex’s schedule has him playing polo in California for the full summer season with the Los Padres out of Santa Barbara.

A tournament is scheduled from June 3 to 19. However, as the royal author and expert Omid Scobie noted on Twitter, those are not the dates of the matches but simply the tournament itself. So Harry’s schedule might line up perfectly, allowing him to go to the U.K. to celebrate the milestone in his grandmother’s reign and be back in time for polo.
