Meghan Markle and Prince Harry acted like “stubborn teenagers” during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, claims a royal critic.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended an anniversary event, a thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, before flying back to the US over the weekend.
Royal biographer Angela Levin said the couple may have been “pissed off” at not getting pictures of their daughter Lilibet with the Queen Daily Star reports.
Meghan and Harry’s trip to the UK for the anniversary celebrations marked their first visit to the UK together since ‘Megxit’.
Despite reports that the royal family feared a large public presence from the Sussexes would overshadow the Queen’s celebrations, Angela told GB News the couple hadn’t turned up enough.

“I thought they were really like irritable teenagers,” she claimed.
“If they didn’t get what they wanted, they would leave.
“They left early, they left before the pageant on Sunday. But they didn’t go anywhere else either.”
Harry and Meghan’s only public appearance during the anniversary weekend was at Thanksgiving service on Friday (June 3).
Angela dismissed the argument that the couple wanted to stay in their family unit as “bullshit,” adding, “You’re with your family all the time, you don’t use that as an excuse like you’re that close.”
The critic was particularly scathing in her assessment of a particular incident where the Sussexes were able to roll down their car windows to greet fans.
This, Angela suggested, contradicted the prince’s claims that he did not feel safe in Britain, leading to him taking the Home Office to court over its protection on British soil.
“There he was, in a car with black windows, so they forced her into it so nobody could see who it was, and they both opened the windows all the way down and started waving at people,” she said.

“It was a clue to me that they couldn’t be in the spotlight. However, this is very dangerous; Someone could throw a bomb or a load of tomatoes in through the window, you make yourself very vulnerable.
“It’s such hypocrisy, isn’t it?”
In the absence of any pictures of Lilibet and the Queen, Harry and Meghan posted a picture taken from her daughter at Frogmore Cottage on the occasion of her first birthday.
Speaking to GB News, however, Angela claimed those adorable snaps might not be enough to please the couple’s Netflix bosses, who she said were interested in footage of a royal meeting with the Queen.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been asked for comment.
