Harry and Meghan ‘spent just 15 minutes’ with the Queen during the Jubilee

The Queen spent a mere 15 minutes with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they crossed the Atlantic to be at the Platinum Jubilee, according to reports.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew to the UK be a part of the four-day event with their three-year-old son Archie and daughter Lilibet, who turned one during the celebrations.

It was the first time the Queen had met her namesake great-granddaughter.

Despite this, their meeting was kept "formal" by Buckingham Palace aides and lasted only a quarter of an hour according to a source who told the Sun: "It was a quick in and out job. It was all quite formal".

The couple are rebuilding relationships after making a series of controversial allegations about royal life.

Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on the claim.

During their flying visit to the UK, Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, threw Lilibet a garden party at Frogmore Cottage to mark her first birthday.

The following day, the couple flew back to their home in the US last Sunday an hour before senior royals appeared at the Platinum Jubilee pageant.

On Friday, Prince Harry, 37, was spotted in his first public outing since he and Meghan, 40, quietly left the UK, enjoying a game of polo in the Californian sun in Santa Barbara on Friday.
