Harry and Meghan were invited to a private lunch with senior members of the royal family following Trooping the Colour. It was there the Queen met her namesake.
And while Lilibet will celebrate her first birthday tomorrow, don’t expect a photo of the Queen posing with her great-granddaughter to be released.
According to royal commentator Omid Scobie, “those moments with Lilibet are very much private between them and the Queen.”
In an interview with BBC Breakfast, Scobie said Harry and Meghan “want to be as low-profile as possible.”
“Before they arrived there was so much talk in the press about the couple potentially overshadowing the Queen herself which I think is almost impossible for anyone to do,” he said.
“I spoke with people close to the couple who said that it couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact they want to be as low-profile as possible during this trip”.
“Yesterday at Trooping the Colour was a great example. We didn’t really catch sight of them on TV cameras. There are a few grainy photos of them in existence online but that is about as far as it goes”.
