Her Majesty, who is 96 tomorrow, has never met Lilibet, who is named after her.
News of the invitation, which was announced yesterday, has left palace planners in disarray.
They are trying to work out where California-based Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, should stand for the balcony line-up.
Harry and Meghan, who had surprise “clear the air talks” with Her Majesty, Charles, 73, and Camilla, 74, at Windsor last Thursday, will not be allowed to have their Netflix film crew on the balcony, it is understood.
A team from the streaming giant, with which they have a £113million deal, followed them at the Invictus Games in The Hague, Netherlands.
A Palace source said: “It’s expected that the Sussexes will be on the balcony, quite possibly with their children.
“It will be a powerful show of unity for the Queen but it is proving a headache for planners.”
There are fears behind palace walls that the “Harry and Meg show” could “hijack or overshadow” the jubilee.
They were denied a “half-in, half-out” royal role amid fears they may use it to cash in on their life abroad.
Senior staff, however, point out that the pair promised “to uphold the values of Her Majesty” at all times.
The four-day Jubilee party runs from June 2 to June 5 and Her Majesty is not expected at event due to her mobility problems.
She needs a walking stick and will only confirm her attendance on the day of events.
Harry and Meghan cannot attend formal occasions, like Trooping the Colour, as they quit royal life.
They have the same status as the Duke of York, who was stripped of his royal roles over his sex abuse case.
The Palace would not comment on balcony appearances “so far in advance” of the Platinum Jubilee.
