Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are hoping to keep a low profile during their visit to the UK, a royal commentator has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex landed in the UK yesterday to be greeted by a royal armoured car at the airport.

The pair, along with their children, attended the Trooping of the Colour yesterday from behind closed doors.

Despite being snapped from a distance, the pair avoided official photographers.

And a royal commentator has said that Meghan and Harry hope to be as “low-profile as possible” during their trip to the UK for The Platinum Jubilee.

Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom, claimed to have spoken to someone close to the couple since they arrived in the UK.

He said: “They want to be as low-profile as possible during this trip.

“It’s almost hard to believe, but I think yesterday Trooping the Colour was a great example. We didn’t really catch sight of them on TV cameras.”

He added that the couple hold a “warm and close” relationship with The Queen.

He also spoke about Lilibet’s upcoming first birthday on June 4.

He also told the BBC: “Those moments with Lilibet are very much private between them and the Queen” and that last evening at Windsor would have been the first time Her Majesty would have met her namesake in person.
