Harry and Meghan were again absent as the Queen’s four-day platinum jubilee celebrations drew to a close on Sunday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept a low profile during the long bank holiday weekend in honor of Her Majesty’s record-breaking 70-year reign.

They made only very brief appearances on Thursday and were seen watching Trooping the Color from the Major General’s office overlooking Horse Guards Parade.

Meghan was photographed playfully silencing some of the younger royal children, while she and her husband were also spotted chatting with the Queen’s cousin, the Duke of Kent.

But they did not join other senior family members on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the anniversary flight due to their new status as non-working royals.

The couple were later seen being driven around London as Meghan smiled at the revelers through the car’s open window.

On Friday, they made their first public appearance alongside the Windsors since retiring two years ago.

The Sussexes were greeted with great cheers as they joined numerous family members at the special anniversary service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral.

But they sat far across from Charles, William and Kate and there were no obvious signs of interaction between them.

The couple then skipped a Guildhall reception for the royals and instead headed straight back to Frogmore Cottage.

Harry and Meghan reportedly threw a birthday party for their daughter Lilibet to celebrate her turning one on Saturday.

They are said to have held an informal meeting at the royal estate after a spokesman for the couple said they would be spending the day privately rather than attending the party at the palace.

The Duke and Duchess are believed to have stayed at Windsor that night with their children, along with the Queen, who was watching the Platinum Party at the castle on TV.

And there was no sign of them at Sunday’s folk pageant as Her Majesty wowed the crowd with a surprise second appearance on the balcony.

Speaking to Sky News, Hello magazine royal editor Emily Nash said Harry and Meghan’s attendance at the anniversary celebrations went “without a hitch”.

She added: “There was some concern that the arrival of Harry and Meghan might overshadow things just because of the test the family and dynamic between them would have.

“But they’ve kept a low profile, they haven’t attended some of the big events, and yet they will have had the opportunity to spend some time with the Queen.

“This is great for [the Queen]. Family means everything to her so I’m sure she will have been very encouraged to see them again.”
