The royal family has made a regal arrival at the 2022 Trooping the Colour parade—but where exactly are Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan?

This year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are keeping a low profile as they attend Queen Elizabeth's annual birthday parade. BAZAAR.com can confirm that the two are indeed watching the festivity live from the Major General's Office.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace previously confirmed that non-working members of the royal family would not be invited to attend the traditional balcony appearance during the parade.

"After careful consideration, The Queen has decided this year's traditional Trooping the Colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2nd 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," the spokesperson said in a statement to BAZAAR.com.

The decision means that Harry and Meghan—along with other non-working royals like Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice—will not appear on the balcony today.

The couple—who arrived in London yesterday afternoon with their children, three-year-old Archie and 11-month-old Lilibet—last made a public appearance at the parade in 2019, prior to them stepping down as senior members of the royal family in 2020.

Since then, the celebration has been modified due to the COVID-19 pandemic, producing scaled-down affairs held at Windsor Castle instead. Today marks the parade's return to Buckingham Palace.
