Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were cheered as they held hands on the second day of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and joined the rest of the royal family for a service at St Paul’s Cathedral.

It is the first time the couple have been seen in public alongside the rest of the company since they left the monarchy for a new life in the US two years ago.

They were greeted at the grand west door by the Dean of St. Paul’s and spent a few minutes speaking with the senior minister before entering the place of worship and proceeding to greet the long line of ministers attending today’s Thanksgiving service .

Harry paused to chat with the Archbishop of York, who is later to deliver the homily praising the Queen’s 70-year reign.

Their seats are in the second row of the gathering, with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and their husbands, and Lady Sarah Chatto, Princess Margaret’s daughter, and her family.

They are seated behind the Earl and Countess of Wessex, who are seated in the front row with their children, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor and Viscount Severn, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

Across the aisle are Prince Charles and Camilla, who have ornate chairs. Next to it are the seats of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as the Princess Royal and her husband, Vice Admiral Tim Laurence.

However, they were not seen with the Queen as it was announced last night that she would not be attending the service due to “episodic mobility issues” and would instead be watching the event at Windsor Castle.

Yesterday the couple were reunited with the royals at Horse Guards Parade for Trooping the Color and were seen chatting and joking with some of the younger royals – although they weren’t pictured with Kate or the other Cambridges.

Although there were no signs of their own children Archie and Lilibet, it has emerged that their daughter, who will turn one tomorrow, had her first opportunity to meet the Queen last night.

Omid Scobie, one of the authors of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s biography Finding Freedom, told BBC Breakfast: “I think people are expecting some kind of big, extravagant birthday event that we’re going to see photos of. I was told not to expect anything.

“These moments with Lilibet are very private between you and the Queen and of course we know how much she was looking forward to it.

“They have been held back by a pandemic. Of course, during the times Harry was here, he was only alone on rather somber occasions. And that was really the first time.

“Of course we know the Queen returned to Windsor Castle yesterday, the couple also returned to Windsor where they are staying at Frogmore Cottage.

“So that would have been the first moment or chance for her to meet her namesake.”

He also said that Harry and Meghan hope to be as “low profile as possible” during their trip to the UK for The Platinum Jubilee.

Mr Scobie added: “I’ve spoken to people close to the couple … who said they want to be as inconspicuous as possible during this trip.

“It’s almost hard to believe, but I think Trooping the Color was a great example yesterday. We haven’t really seen them on TV cameras.”
