It is understood a decision on the scale of this year’s event is to be made in the spring.

Royal aides told the Sunday Times Meghan and Harry are expected to join the Queen for Trooping the Colour.

If they do attend, it would be the first public reunion of the Royal Family since the Sussexes’ departure last March – dubbed Megxit.

A senior royal aide said: “The current plan is for the Queen’s birthday parade to go ahead in London as normal, with the acceptance that it may need to be adapted or scaled back depending on what guidelines are in force at the time.

Meghan and Harry are now living in an £11 million mansion in California with their young son Archie.

They ended royal duties on March 31 for a new life free from royal constraints.

In recent months, the couple has struck lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotfy.

They have also established their Archewell charitable foundation.

The Megxit arrangements are due to be reviewed after 12 months – with the pair having pledged that “everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty”.

The review will deal with unresolved issues including what will happen to Harry’s honorary military titles.
