Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which will mark her achievement as the first British monarch to reach this incredible milestone, will coincide with the first birthday of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter, Lilibet Diana.

Lili will turn 1 on June 4, 2022, the same weekend that the U.K. will hold festivities celebrating the Queen's 70 years on the throne since June 2 marks the anniversary of her 1953 coronation at Westminster Abbey, according to People.

This year, Buckingham Palace announced a weekend of celebrations that will span from June 2 to 5.

The monarch ascended to the throne on Feb. 6, 1952, at 25 years old following the sudden passing of her father, King George VI. To give way to the mourning period, her coronation was postponed until 16 months later.

All the stops are now being pulled out for the four-day national celebration, with several working members of the Royal Family, Prince Charles and Princess Anne, and her grandson Prince William, expected to make an appearance during the affairs.

However, it remains to be seen if the Sussexes would manage to fly to London for the occasions, including the much-anticipated Trooping the Colour, an annual special parade held in London during the Queen’s birthday.

The event was scaled back and held at Windsor Castle instead for the past two years due to the health risks posed by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and its lockdown restrictions. This also meant that the Queen's great-grandchildren missed out on the spectacles, Express noted.

According to the palace, the Platinum Jubilee edition of Trooping the Colour in June will be restored to its former glory as COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease worldwide. Traditionally, crowds of people line the streets of London to catch a glimpse of the Royal Family as they wave from the Buckingham Palace balcony.

Archie and Lilibet have yet to make their Trooping the Colour debuts. Royal fans have high hopes the adorable duo may also appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony this year. Following their royal exit, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to California in the U.S. and raised their family in a $15-million mansion in Montecito.

As per the program announced by Buckingham Palace, the U.K. will witness a pudding competition, parades, concerts, and a Bank Holiday to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 70 glorious years of service as the British monarch, the News International reported.

The Queen will also host a star-studded Platinum Party that day per the royal website.
