Harry and Meghan kept a relatively low-profile during the Jubilee celebrations

The monarch was joined by Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and their children for one final showing, expressing her gratitude for the celebrations.

Harry and Meghan kept a relatively low profile during their stay; they were spotted out on Thursday at Trooping the Colour, and again at the Service of Thanksgiving on Friday.

On Saturday the couple were absent from the festivities, including the Platinum Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace - however, it's likely they spent private time together in celebration of daughter Lilibet's first birthday.
