Meghan Markle latest news: Prince Harry & Meg 'keeping as low a profile as possible' in UK to show RESPECT to the Queen

A ROYAL watcher says Meghan & Harry aim to be as "low-profile as possible" during the Platinum Jubilee out of respect for the Queen.

The Duke and Duchess were given prime seats to watch the Trooping the Colour as the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations kicked off on Thursday.

But Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom, told BBC Breakfast: "I spoke with people close to the couple… who said that they want to be as low-profile as possible during this trip.

"It's almost hard to believe, but I think yesterday Trooping the Colour was a great example. We didn't really catch sight of them on TV cameras."

He added that the couple hold a "warm and close" relationship with The Queen.

He also spoke about Lilibet's upcoming first birthday on June 4, saying: "Those moments with Lilibet are very much private between them and the Queen" and that last evening at Windsor would have been the first time Her Majesty would have met her namesake in person.

It comes as The Duchess of Sussex cheekily put her finger to her lips as she helped entertain Savannah Phillips and Mia Tindall during Trooping the Colour yesterday.

Wearing navy with a matching hat for the Jubilee celebrations, the duchess was all smiles as she made time for Zara Tindall's eldest daughter along with the Queen's great-granddaughter Savannah Philips.

    Statement from Buckingham Palace on Queen's service cancellation

    Buckingham Palace said the 96-year-old monarch, who has been dogged by mobility problems for months, experienced "some discomfort" after two public appearances on the balcony after the Trooping the Colour military parade.

    "Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in (Friday's) national service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, Her Majesty with great reluctance has concluded that she will not attend," it added.

    There will be no sign either of the queen's second son Prince Andrew, who was not at Thursday's parade. It was later announced he had tested positive for Covid.

    Prince Louis jumps up and down as he’s wowed by Red Arrows

    ADORABLE Prince Louis was seen jumping with glee after he’s wowed by the Red Arrows during the Jubilee celebrations.

    The young Prince, four, beamed and chatted to his great-grandmother the Queen as they watched the sensational show from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

    Her Majesty looked chuffed at Louis’ reaction – as he excitedly awaited the spectacle in the sky.

    Kate Middleton was seen whispering in Louis’ ear – before he frantically waves up above at the passing planes.

    Prince Louis and his older sister Charlotte then continue their playful waves while the rest of the royal family beam at the adorable children.

    The Queen points into the distance, before eagerly chatting to Louis again – perhaps to redirect his attention to the latest RAF flypast.

    But giggly Louis then starts jumping up and down on the spot, despite what appears to be calming words whispered to him by his mother.

    Louis and Princess Charlotte then grabbed and covered their ears as the booming sounds overhead passed by.

    Who did Prince Andrew get Covid from?

    Andrew was last pictured on Wednesday, riding his horse around the Windsor Estate, where he resides.

    It is unknown as to where the Prince caught Covid and who from.

    He has been away from the public eye recently due to the Virginia Giuffre sexual abuse case.

    Andrew has vehemently denied the assault claims but reached a £12million settlement in February to stop the case proceeding to a civil trial.

    Prince Andrew tests positive for COVID days after seeing Queen

    PRINCE Andrew has tested positive for Covid – forcing him to pull out of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

    The Duke of York, 62, has seen Her Majesty in the last few days but she has been tested and not met with her son since his diagnosis.

    Andrew had been expected to join his mum at her Service of Thanksgiving on Friday at St Paul’s Cathedral but has now pulled out.

    It is touted to be the largest gathering of the royal family since Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018.

    The couple are understood to be attending and said they are “excited and honoured” to be there.

    Andrew was noticeably absent from today’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations before his diagnosis was confirmed.

    What does Meghan's body language from today show?

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were reunited with the Firm for the first time since Megxit at Trooping the Colour.

    And the Duchess of Sussex showed no hint of awkwardness as she was seen playfully shushing Savannah Phillips and Mia Tindall from the window at the Major General's Office where the couple watched the spectacle.

    However, Meghan’s apparent ease at the situation is far from accidental according to one body language expert.

    Behavioural psychologist Jo Hemmings says that the mum-of-two is ‘distracting’ from what is an otherwise very serious atmosphere.

    Speaking to Fabulous Jo explains: “What is really clear is that Meghan is using playfulness as a distracting gesture from the more serious issues and divided opinion that have accompanied her and Harry on this trip. 

    “I think she is hyper aware of the delicacy of the situation, but rather than draw attention to it by either looking sombre and serious or attempting to blend in with a jollity she may not genuinely feel, she has navigated a middle path – where she can appear a little more carefree and child-like amongst some of the younger Royals.

    “With a gentle shushing gesture to some of the more excitable little ones, she is also delivering a responsible, caring and kind role in keeping them quiet at special moments.”

    The Sussexes were banned from the traditional balcony wave – along with disgraced Prince Andrew – after Her Majesty limited the appearance to only senior working royals.

    Royal family will be ‘careful’ about what they say in front of Sussexes

    The royal family will be ‘careful’ about what they say in front of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle former royal butler Paul Burrell has claimed.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have travelled from their home in California for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, collected from the airport by Her Majesty’s personal cars.

    However, despite the warm welcome the former royal footman claims that the couple’s arrival will bring a ‘cool atmosphere’.

    Speaking on Lorraine today, he told Ranvir Singh: “There will be a very cool atmosphere behind closed doors because of what’s been said in the past.

    “Some members of the royal family have been burned by what Harry and Meghan have said, especially on Oprah, and they don’t like it.”

    Burrell went on to say that following Harry and Meghan’s explosive claims on the show, many families will be wary about what is said in front of the couple.

    He continued: “They will be very careful about what is said now in front of them (Meghan and Harry) because they could take that back to America and make it part of their commercial platform.

    “They could use that information.”

    Queen warned Meghan to exploit Jubilee olive branch

    A royal commentator has claimed that the Queen has been warned that the Royal Family is facing a "high element of risk" during the Jubilee.

    Commentator Nile Gardiner warned that the Royal Family "should be concerned" that the Duchess will use the Jubilee as a "publicity exercise for herself and her business interests."

    Speaking to Express.co.uk Mr Gardiner said: "The Queen is an immensely big-hearted person who wants to embrace the whole family and that's her decision.

    "It's a reflection of her spirit of grace and her big-heartedness.

    "But the reality is that Meghan Markle in particular has a history of attacking the institution of the monarchy and undermining the British Royal Family, including the Queen."

    Queen sent car to pick up Harry and Meghan

    THE Queen yesterday gathered her family ahead of her Platinum Jubilee party — including sending her Range Rover to pick up exiled Harry and Meghan.

    The Sussexes secretly arrived by private jet and were greeted by three of the Queen’s protection officers, The Sun can reveal.

    Bullet-proof cars took them — plus children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one on Saturday — from Farnborough Airport, Hants, to Frogmore Cottage, Windsor.

    An insider said: “The Queen believed it was the right thing to do."

    Her Majesty, 96, will today appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the RAF flypast.

      What are the Platinum Jubilee Beacons?

      A beacon is a fire or light that is usually lit up high as a warning, signal or as a celebration, beacons are similar to small bonfires.

      There is a long royal tradition associated with lighting beacons for celebratory purposes.

      Although used for communication in the past, lighting beacons is now a purely ceremonial act.

      In this instance, lighting beacons across the country and the Commonwealth represents the start of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations and symbolises unity.

      People in countries with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state are being asked to take part in this tradition, to gather together and thank her for her seven decade-long premiership.
