Brandis meeting reveals Queen has a secret portrait of newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan in her home

In the photo of George Brandis’s first audience with the Queen as Australia’s new High Commissioner to the UK, it’s what’s on the dresser that has Royal watchers flapping…

It looks like some Internet ‘investigators’ spotted a new and never-seen-before photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the Queen’s home.

According to Hello Magazine, a picture taken on Wednesday last week shows Queen Elizabeth II meeting with George Brandis, the newly appointed Australian High Commissioner to the UK. It didn’t take long before an eagle-eyed reporter from Hello Magazine spotted something interesting in the background.

Of course, social media went nuts when this was uncovered.

Upon inspection, the photo features Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle in an embrace. It appears that Meghan is wearing a pale blue dress and Harry a suit. While it is unclear when the photo of the couple was taken, some speculate that it is a part of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s engagement photos taken by Alexi Lubomirski that were never released to the public.

Meghan Markle’s very own Coat of Arms was also recently released to the public.

The statement by the royal family reads:

“Her Royal Highness worked closely with the College of Arms throughout the design process to create a Coat of Arms that was both personal and representative.

“The blue background of the shield represents the Pacific Ocean off the California coast, while the two golden rays across the shield are symbolic of the sunshine of The Duchess’s home state. The three quills represent communication and the power of words.

“Beneath the shield on the grass sits a collection of golden poppies, California’s state flower, and wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace.

“It is customary for Supporters of the shield to be assigned to Members of the Royal Family, and for wives of Members of the Royal Family to have one of their husband’s Supporters and one relating to themselves. The Supporter relating to The Duchess of Sussex is a songbird with wings elevated as if flying and an open beak, which with the quill represents the power of communication.

“A Coronet has also been assigned to The Duchess of Sussex. It is the Coronet laid down by a Royal Warrant of 1917 for the sons and daughters of the Heir Apparent. It is composed of two crosses patée, four fleurs-de-lys and two strawberry leaves.

“The arms of a married woman are shown with those of her husband and the technical term is that they are impaled, meaning placed side by side in the same shield.”

Looks like Meghan has been welcomed with open arms into the royal family!
