THE Queen banned Harry and Meghan from bringing a photographer to Windsor Castle to capture the moment Lilibet met Lilibet.
The Sussexes introduced their daughter Lilibet to her great-grandmother for the first time on Thursday afternoon, The Sun understands.
They wanted to bring a private snapper to capture their first face-to-face meeting, but were told “no.”
Lilibet has been controversially named after the Queen’s childhood nickname, sparking a storm when it was claimed Her Majesty was “not consulted” about the decision.
And Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, rushed back to California on Sunday afternoon without a snap.
There were fears photos of the Queen and Lilibet, taken by the couple’s photographer, would be shared with US television networks.
They were kept at arm’s length by the royals during the platinum jubilee and left without public appearances alongside the Queen, Charles, Camilla, William or Kate.
A source said: “Harry and Meghan wanted their photographer to capture the moment Lilibet met the Queen.
“But they were told there was no chance. It was a private family reunion.”
Buckingham Palace declined to comment.
The pair had agreed to stick to the script to keep a low profile for the weekend without Netflix cameras.
They had to settle for second-row royal status at the Queen’s Thanksgiving service in St. Paul’s on Friday.
They flew back to California on a private jet on Sunday.
Harry didn’t look happy when he was photographed after landing yesterday.
