Meghan and Harry’s last moment with Queen was ‘just 15 minutes’ at Jubilee

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's last moments with the Queen came months before her death at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this June.

The Duke of Sussex missed out on the chance to say his final goodbye's to his beloved grandmother, reportedly arriving at Aberdeen hospital after the 96-year-old had passed away.

It was the last in a series of potential meetings between Prince Harry and the Queen following their allegedly brief encounter during the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations earlier this June.

Rumours over the "formal" meeting during the celebrations were aired, with the Queen being introduced to her namesake great-granddaughter, Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.

The now precious moment for Harry and Meghan marked the first time the Queen had the chance to meet her beloved great-granddaughter.

It would appear that plans for the Sussexes and the Queen to meet again fell through, with several plans made across the few months between the Jubilee and the 96-year-old's death.

Most notable of these would-be plans was the "olive branch" offering of a sleepover at Balmoral Castle, which Daily Star reported this July.

Staff are said to have been "preparing for the Sussexes", with a Balmoral insider saying that preparations had been underway to host the Sussexes and their children.

The Sussexes are said to have turned down the invitation though, with the pair having arrived in the UK to visit two charities in the UK.

King Charles III had also invited the couple to stay, with an insider saying he had hoped the invite would give everyone time to "take stock and relax".

The invitation for both the sleepover and Prince Charles' offer were said to have been declined.

A private conversation between Prince Harry and the Queen had been held back in April, with the Duke of Sussex saying it was "great to see her" ahead of the Invictus Games ceremony, Page Six reported.

Prince Harry posted a tribute to the late Queen, celebrating her life in a post that one Twitter user labelled a "beautiful tribute" to the 96-year-old.
