Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were in attendance for the Trooping the Colour but stayed out of sight as the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations got underway.

The pair, alongside their children Archie and Lilibet, reportedly arrived in the UK yesterday ahead of the Jubilee to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years of reign.

But the family opted to keep a low profile as the four-day event began at Buckingham Palace.

It was announced yesterday that Harry and Meghan would have a prime vantage point with members of the monarchy from the Duke of Wellington’s former office, overlooking Horse Guards Parade, as they watch Charles inspect the guardsmen and officers and take their salute.

The pair were snubbed from making Trooping the Colour balcony appearance, with Her Majesty opting to limit those in attendance to working members of her family.

The monarch’s decision to only include royals carrying out official public duties was taken “after careful consideration”, Buckingham Palace said last month.

While the Queen didn’t take part in Trooping the Colour, she was seen on the balcony for the flypast of RAF aircrafts.

Accompanied by her children, grandchildren and grandchildren, her Majesty wore a pair of dark sunglasses for the occasion.

Prince Charles stood to the right of the Queen, and the pair could be seen chatting and smiling ahead of the flypast.

The Royals were seen applauding the flypast, with particular excitement displayed towards the spectacular patriotic display by the Red Arrows.
