Harry and Meghan would have been ‘cheeky’ to ask for photo of Queen and Lilibet

With the Royal Family gathering to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, the occasion marked a potential first meeting between Queen Elizabeth II and her namesake great-granddaughter.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, had ample time to meet with the Queen amid the four-day celebrations.

But a royal expert said Harry and Meghan would have been "cheeky" if they were to ask for a photograph of the Queen and her great-granddaughter in their first meeting together.

While the "keepsake" moment, as reported by Daily Star, was likely not going to be released to the public, an expert has claimed it would have been cheeky for the Sussexes to ask for a photograph.

Reports indicate that the Sussexes wanted one of their own photographers to capture the tender moment between the 96-year-old monarch and her one-year-old great-granddaughter.

But an unnamed source has claimed they had "no chance" as it was a private moment for the family.

Royal expert and biographer Angela Levin said: "It is an incredible cheek. It is too incredible for words to have put pressure on his grandmother when she's struggling to move during four days of celebrations where huge demands are being put on her.

"It’s even more of a strain when you are 96-years-old. The Jubilee is her last efforts as monarch, and yet Harry asks for time with her when she can’t say no."

Instead, Levin believes the couple should have "stayed for a few days" after the Jubilee to spend time with the Queen, Daily Mail reported.

Levin continued: "They should have stayed for a few days afterwards, spent time with the Queen after her duties had finished, tried to make things right with William. They would have had the time – but they chose to rush in and rush out."

The royal expert also alleged that Harry's "self destruction" was visible, saying: "All his impatience and self destruction is visible. He can’t hide it."
