Harry and Meghan ‘missed Red Arrows flypast over Buckingham Palace as they hastily left Jubilee celebrations’

PRINCE Harry and Meghan were in such a rush to get away from the first day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations they missed the Red Arrows flypast over Buckingham Palace, it is claimed.

The couple — on a first joint visit to the UK after quitting as frontline royals — “rushed back” to Frogmore ­Cottage, their Windsor home, after the Trooping the Colour ceremony.

It came after the Queen is said to have told Harry and Meghan she would not pose for a picture with their daughter Lilibet as Her Majesty had a bloodshot eye.

Her senior aides are understood to have voiced fears that a picture could be shared in the US, where Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, have a multimillion pound contract with Netflix.

It was also reported in the Telegraph yesterday the couple visited the Queen as a family the day before Trooping the Colour.

It was previously thought the meeting took place afterwards.

It’s also claimed they declined invites to the Party at the Palace and the Platinum Pageant.

A source said: “Harry and Meghan were kept at arm’s length during the whole weekend — and they did not make much effort to help thaw relations either.”
