THE Queen is said to be looking forward to meeting Lilibet for the first time at her Jubilee and will “welcome Harry and Meghan with open arms.”
Her Majesty is likely to spend time with the Sussexes next Saturday, when Lilibet celebrates her first birthday, according to insiders.
The 96-year-old monarch is “looking forward” to seeing little Lilibet and Archie when they arrive in the country next week.
Meghan and Harry are bringing the children to the UK for the celebrations – and will likely stay at their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage.
The Sussexes are set to be at the Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen on Friday – but the public shouldn’t “expect them at every event.”
The Queen wants her four-day Jubilee celebrations to be “an occasion in which the country, including her own family,
comes together” a source told the Mail.
She allegedly also “doesn’t want anything to overshadow it – and that includes any family issues.”
A spokesman for the Sussexes said: “The duke and duchess are
excited and honoured to attend the Jubilee celebrations.”
This follows news that the Queen has taken a “mini-break” to Scotland to chill out and ensure she is fully fit and ready for her four-day Platinum Jubilee beano.
The 96-year-old is staying at her Highlands bolthole Craigowan Lodge on her Balmoral estate.

It comes after HOAR revealed a wheelchair lift and security ring of steel had been installed around the lodge – so she could spend more time in Scotland.
The Queen has carried out a hectic few weeks opening the Elizabeth Line, watching the Royal Windsor Horse Show and taking a golf cart around Chelsea Flower Show.
She will relax at the lodge described as her “favourite home” before Platinum Jubilee kicks off next Thursday.
The monarch often travels to Balmoral at this time of year and usually stays for around a week.
Her break on this occasion is understood to be a means of pacing herself ahead of the Jubilee weekend.

A source close to the Queen said she wants to take more short breaks to Balmoral and Sandringham when possible.
One said: “It dawned on her last year that she can take these mini-breaks and she thoroughly enjoys them.”
