The reason why Queen Elizabeth refused to get a photo with Lilibet

The Queen met Prince Harry's daughter for the first time in June.

The reason why Queen Elizabeth refused to get a photo with her great-granddaughter Lilibet has been revealed.

During the Platinum Jubilee Weekend, the monarch met her 1-year-old great-granddaughter. This was Lilibet's first time in the United Kingdom, as well as her first time meeting her great-grandmother.

The momentous occasion was incredibly special for both Prince Harry, as well as the Queen, but no official photo was released.

The royals usually share official family photos for special occasions like this. Birthday portraits are often shared of the royal children, but no photo was taken at the request of the 96-year-old.

The reason why is because of a 'medical condition'.

Sources claimed the Queen had a bloodshot eye when she met Prince Harry's daughter.

A royal source told The Telegraph that Prince Harry hopes they can get a photo together in the future.

The dad-of-two has a special relationship with his grandmother and hopes the Queen will meet her namesake again.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and their two children returned to the UK for the monarch's Platinum Jubilee in June. This was the family's first time visiting the UK together.

Harry and Meghan hosted a birthday party for Lilibet during their trip. They had a celebration at their English home Frogmore Cottage. Close friends and family attended the celebration, but Prince William, Kate, and their three children did not attend.

They were conducting a royal engagement in Wales at the time of the party.
