Royal update: Queen displays pic of Meghan and Harry in palace – is all forgiven?

Reports said Prince Charles gave Harry a 'substantial amount' of money when he and Meghan left the UK for the US.

In the latest royal news update it seems peace has been restored in Buckingham Palace as the Queen has placed a photograph of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in her photograph collection.

Could this be the result of the pictures of Lilibet the couple shared on the family’s WhatsApp group chat?

Here is what has been happening in the Royal Family:

Queen Elizabeth had concerns about Kate Middleton when Prince William proposed

Queen Elizabeth had always been fond of Kate, even before she became a much loved member of the royal family after marrying William in 2011, but, according to The Mirror, the Queen was concerned that Kate had not developed an identity of her own before joining the royal family.

The Mirror reported that royal correspondent Phil Damphier said the Queen’s concerns were that Kate was not doing much when an engagement was in the talks and she was worried about the fashion icon’s work ethic.

The Queen’s concerns have been put to rest though, as Kate has proven to be her own woman with her own identity. Since marrying into the royal family, the fashion icon co-founded the Head’s Together charity with her husband, Prince William, which helps people tackle mental illness and offers resources and support to those who need it.
