The real reason the Queen could not be photographed with Lilibet during her first visit to the UK has been revealed, with a royal expert claiming it was down to the Queen suffering from a medical issue.


As the Queen cleared some time in her busy Jubilee schedule to meet her great-granddaughter Lilibet for the first time, it has been reported that she refused the Sussexes’ request for a photograph of the moment because of a ‘medical concern’.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee saw the Firm gather to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Their return marked the first time the couple had returned together for an official engagement and with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
