• Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed that they would watch the flypast from the Major General's Office
  • Prince Harry's cousins Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice will join them in the office
  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly arrived at a U.K. airport on Wednesday

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are already in the U.K. for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, and they will be present at Trooping the Color.

Last month, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen decided to limit the number of royals accompanying her on the balcony for Trooping the Color to those still serving the firm. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and the Duke of York, who all stepped down from their royal duties, didn't make the cut.

Despite being excluded from making a balcony appearance, Prince Harry and Markle will attend Trooping the Color. The royal couple will watch the Horse Guards Parade on Thursday from the Major General's Office, overlooking the parade grounds, People reported.

The Queen's other grandchildren, who aren't taking part in the carriage procession or balcony appearances, like Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, will join the Sussexes in the office.

Prince Harry and Markle's spokesperson confirmed this detail to People, saying that they "look forward" to watching the annual Trooping parade "from the Major General's Office tomorrow."

Traditionally, the members of the royal family gather together on the balcony to watch a flypast during Trooping the Color. However, the Queen opted to limit the number of royals joining her this year.

"After careful consideration, the Queen has decided that this year's traditional Trooping the Color balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd of June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen," a Buckingham Palace spokesman said in a statement in May.

Royal biographer Angela Levin believed that the Queen decided to limit the balcony attendance to working royals to stop Prince Andrew from attending the event. Her Majesty received intense backlash when she chose the Duke of York to be her escort when she attended Prince Philip's memorial service in March.

The Queen's sighting with her disgraced son, just weeks after he settled the sexual assault case with Virginia Giuffre, raised some eyebrows. The 96-year-old British monarch allegedly didn't want the same furor from the public.

"The way she has done it is if you are not a working royal, you can't be on it," the "Harry: A Biography of a Prince" author told Sky News when asked about the possibility of the Sussexes making a balcony appearance. "That's a way of stopping Prince Andrew from going out [on the balcony]. I think there would be quite a feeling of anger amongst us all [if Andrew were to appear]."

Prince Harry and Markle arrived in the U.K. Wednesday. They were seen at a London airport with their children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, who will turn 1 on Saturday. They were joined by a small team of staffers. The Queen sent a car and security to pick them up, Page Six reported.
