Harry and Meghan told ‘no chance’ after Queen and Lilibet photo pleas

The Queen is said to have shut down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, with a photo including the Queen and Lilibet rejected by the monarch.

A first-time meeting between the Queen and her namesake great-granddaughter was kept private, despite requests from the Sussexes to photograph the meeting between Lilibet and Her Majesty.

Harry and Meghan's request was reportedly rejected by the Queen, who said there was "no chance" of a picture between herself and great-granddaughter Lilibet on their first meeting.

The pair are said to have met during the busy Platinum Jubilee celebrations, with Daily Star reporting at the time that no photo of the first meeting would be revealed.

The Sussexes are said to have requested a private photographer be present at the meeting, but the Queen reportedly told them "no chance" when asked her opinion on the presence of a photographer.

Her Majesty's rejection of a photographer at the first-time meeting is reportedly due to fears over the images being leaked to US television networks.

Harry and Meghan are said to have introduced one-year-old Lilibet, who celebrated her first birthday during the Platinum Jubilee, to the Queen during the celebrations.

An insider speaking to The Sun said: "Harry and Meghan wanted their photographer to capture the moment Lilibet met the Queen.

"But they were told no chance. It was a private family meeting."

The Sussexes attempted to keep a low profile at the event which celebrated 70 years of the Queen's reign, but some irate Twitter users accused the pair of trying to steal the spotlight.

Daily Star reported the attempts at a low profile attendance of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee service, but Royal Family fans remained unconvinced and took to social media to air their fury.

Meghan found herself at the centre of a social media storm after an image of her and husband Harry in the back of a car was posted.

Buckingham Palace has been contacted for comment.
