THE Queen has given a subtle hint she may prefer Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to Kate Middleton and Prince William.
When the Queen held an audience with new Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday, eagle-eyed royal fans noticed a very interesting – albeit small – detail when we got a sneak peek inside Her Majesty’s home.
Fans zoomed in on the family photos the Queen has arranged on her table by her fireplace.
They noticed a photo of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has taken pride of place, in front of the snap of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Royal fans have erupted with speculation as to what the pictures mean.
“The fact that she’s put Harry and Meghan in a picture in front of the Cambridges is very interesting.
“My nan always puts pics of her favourite grandkids and the front on the mantlepiece,” one said.
“The positioning of the photos is so strategic.
“She’s definitely hinting that she prefers Harry and Meg,” another added.
Another item in the picture caught the eye of many social media users, who pointed out Her Majesty’s Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier heater.
Journalist Jane Merrick tweeted: “The Queen has what looks like a Dyson Tower Fan to keep cool, which is the least that can be expected for a 93-year-old who’s been made to stay in the 33C capital instead of the Highlands.”
Will Heaven, director of think-tank Policy Exchange, added: “Hard to beat Dyson here for British product placement.”
And Sky’s political editor Faisal Islam said: “HM the Queen confirms Boris Johnson as the UK’s new Prime Minister… Dyson fan cools things in background…”
The item has now been replaced by the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool purifying fan heater, on sale on Dyson’s website for £549.99.
