The Queen has sent a 'secret message' with the latest profile picture on Twitter showing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's new positions clearly.
With Her Majesty front and centre, alongside Prince Charles and Camilla on her right, Prince William and Kate Middleton with their three children on her left, the notable absences of a chosen few speak volumes following a few days of Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Monarch clearly wants her nearest and dearest as the true face of the Royal Family, those working family members who have garnered the most respect among the British public.
There is no place for ‘favourite son’ Prince Andrew, nor the Sussexes, who are no longer working Royals, but is this just a favourite happy snap or a sign that The Queen is showing loyalty to those who are loyal to her?
Harry and Meghan gave up their roles as senior working Royals to, seemingly, move to the United States for a life away from the spotlight, although they did return for the Platinum Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral.
But sitting on the opposite side of the aisle to the Cambridges, as well as Charles and Camilla, reaffirmed their greatly reduced role in one of the world’s most well-known families, while the Duke of York was also absent.
Once one of the stars of the Royal Family, Harry has been reduced to a ‘back-bench’ role alongside the likes of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, also non-working royals.

Buckingham Palace have said that The Queen had decided appearances on the balcony would be limited to “members of the Royal Family who are currently undertaking official public duties” and their children – which effectively ruled out Harry, Meghan and Andrew.
But the picture was noted by social media users, with one follower on Twitter writing: “The core working Royals and the future of the face of the Royal Family. The Queen really told people who she trusted to carry the family forward.”
A second said: “This photo is very meaningful. In fact, it shows the hereditary succession to the throne after her,” while another added: “Sadly, Harry, Meghan, Archie and Lilibet are missing from this family photo – how sad is that?”
