Prince Harry and Meghan share a picture of Lilibet after her first birthday

The Queen reportedly had a simple two-word response to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s request that they photograph their first meeting with their daughter Lilibet.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took Lilibet – named after a nickname of the Queen – to meet their great-grandmother for the first time on Thursday while visiting Britain for the Platinum Jubilee.

According to reports, Harry and Meghan had requested that a private photographer be present at the meeting.

However, the Queen reportedly told them “no chance” when asked for her opinion on the matter – fearing the images would be leaked to US TV networks, they reported The Express.

Lilibet celebrated her first birthday on Saturday before the Sussexes returned to California without a moment on Sunday.

An insider tells The sun : “Harry and Meghan wanted their photographer to capture the moment Lilibet met the Queen.

“But they were told there was no chance. It was a private family reunion.”

The Sussexes were noticeably absent from the limelight during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations and were spotted sitting several rows behind Prince Charles and Prince William at Friday’s Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral.

They were kept at a distance by the royals during the celebrations and were left with no public appearances alongside the Queen, Charles, Camilla, William or Kate.

Harry and Meghan’s low key over the weekend meant they were present without Netflix cameras.

The couple reportedly left the UK ahead of the conclusion of the Queen’s 70th Jubilee finale events.

By the time the £15million final of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant began outside Buckingham Palace on Sunday, the Sussexes had already driven away from Frogmore Cottage.

The couple’s quick exit before the end of the anniversary celebrations came as pundits claimed Harry was struggling to accept his new role as the ‘second row royal’ and fans pointed to Meghan’s ‘obvious’ snub at Kate Middleton.

Tensions have run high between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family since the couple’s Oprah interview last year, in which they made allegations of racism and Meghan spoke candidly about her fractured relationship with Kate.

The Sussexes’ journey from the US is said to have cost over £150,000, but it’s not clear who footed the bill.

In a statement released on Sunday evening, the Queen said she was “humbled and deeply touched” that so many had come to celebrate her platinum anniversary.

“While I may not have personally attended every event, my heart was with all of you,” she said. “And I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family.”
