And Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will have returned to the UK from their nine-day tour of West Africa for the engagement.

On Sunday, Meghan and Kate are due to attend the annual Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph with their husbands.

But Prince Philip, who stood down from official royal duties in 2017 and underwent a hip replacement operation earlier this year, is not expected to attend.

Charles will lay a wreath on the Queen’s behalf, in a sign of the heir to the throne’s growing responsibility.

Meghan announced her pregnancy as she landed in Sydney on October 15 for the first day of the trip.

But since then Meghan has showed no signs of slowing down as she prepares for the Remembrance engagements, just over a week after returning from New Zealand.

However Meghan will leave Harry to complete one event solo as he is scheduled to visit the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on his own on Thursday.
