The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are not likely to confirm their children’s attendance until the last minute.
While the final plans for the weekend are still being drawn up, it is understood that William will take the lead on military events, including standing in for Her Majesty to review the Trooping of the Color in a formal inspection the week before the weekend. jubilee week.
In the meantime, Kate will continue her work with learning from the early years and help coordinate Superbloom, the project that sees the Tower of London awash with hundreds of flowers and even a slide.

Other members of the royal family, including Prince Edward, Sophie Wessex, Princess Anne, Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, will make appearances over the weekend.

Royal aides are understood to be ‘moving heaven and earth’ so the Queen can cheer on her horses from the royal box at the Platinum Jubilee Epsom Derby.
This includes rerouting her official car so that it can stop directly in front of the Queen’s rostrum, so that she only has to walk a few meters to be taken directly to her seat.
A source said: “She really is absolutely determined to attend.”
The Cazoo Derby on Saturday June 4 is one of the official national celebrations during the four-day jubilee weekend in June and one that has a particular personal resonance for the monarch.
The news comes as Prince George has had a “trial day” at a school near Windsor that his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have visited half a dozen times.
The news comes as Prince George has had a “trial day” at a school near Windsor that his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have visited half a dozen times. The family is pictured last week at an Easter service.
William and Kate have been considering where their eldest son should continue his education and, as the Daily Mail reported yesterday, they are also thinking about sending their other children, six-year-old Princess Charlotte and four-year-old Prince Louis, to the same school.
According to a source close to the school, the teachers organized a adaptation-style ‘trial class’ for the eight-year-old future king.
The teachers are understood to have been amused and relieved that the other children in the class did not recognize George or understand his condition.
While the school has a number of children from wealthy European and Russian families, it does not have as high a profile as Ludgrove School in Berkshire, where William attended, or Marlborough College, where Kate studied.
George’s formal education began, at age two, at Westacre Montessori School Nursery, near the family’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.
He enrolled at Thomas’s School in Battersea, south London, in September 2017.
