The Duke of Edinburgh passed away on April 9, 2021, at the age of 99 from old age.
However, it is believed they will pay tribute to Philip across their social media channels.
Recently, Her Majesty and other members of the family came together for a memorial service at Westminster Abbey where they honoured the life of Prince Philip.
This televised service was very public, which makes it no surprise the family will want to remember their beloved family member in private over the weekend.
Prince Philip passed away on a Friday in April last year, with Buckingham Palace confirming the news on the day.
In a statement, the Palace said: "It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
"His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss. Further announcements will be made in due course."
Prince Philip's funeral was held on April 17 at St George's Chapel within Windsor Castle.
At the time, coronavirus restrictions meant only 30 members of the Royal Family could attend the service, and the Queen was forced to sit alone as she said goodbye to her husband of over 70 years.
On April 21, the Queen marked her 95th birthday, releasing a statement to the public thanking them for their support following the death of her husband.
