Prince Harry says he hopes he will be able to attend the Queen's Platinum Jubilee with his family as he wants his children to meet Her Majesty.

The Duke of Sussex sat down with Today's Hoda Kotb for an interview while he was at the Invictus Games in the Hague.

When asked if he plans to attend the Jubilee celebrations, which are taking place in the UK in June, he replied: "I don't know yet, there's a lot of things with security issues and everybody else. This is what I'm trying to do, make it possible for my kids to meet her."

Speaking about his private meeting with the monarch in the UK recently, he recalled: "It was great, it was really nice to see her. To see her in an element of privacy was nice. We have a really special relationship. We talk about things she can't talk about with anyone else.

On the Queen's greatest quality, he responded: "Her sense of humour, and her ability to see the humour in so many different things."

Harry also touched on the struggles of home working with his two young children around, admitting: "It's really hard, when you and your kids are in the same place, to separate the work from them. They overlap."

He then joked: "Archie spends more time interrupting us from Zoom calls, but also gets us off them."

Harry and Meghan have two children together - Archie, 2, and 10-month-old Lilibet. The family relocated to the US after the duke and duchess stood down from their royal duties. The Queen met Archie as a baby when he was christened in the private chapel at Windsor Castle in July, 2019.

Earlier this year, the Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service.

The anniversary will be commemorated with events and initiatives that will take place throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.
