“Everything about the tea time meeting was deliberately informal, I am told,” royal correspondent Richard Kay wrote in the Daily Mail. “In part it was to settle any nerves Meghan might have felt but also to ensure it was not widely publicized within the palace.”

According to eyewitnesses, a Ford Galaxy with blacked out windows arrived at Buckingham Palace last week and used the Queen’s private entrance. A source explained that this was an unusual choice for the royals. “The royals usually want to make sure they can be seen,” the insider told the site.

Harry and Meghan reportedly then exited the vehicle and were brought up to the Queen’s private sitting room, where they enjoyed tea for nearly an hour with the English monarch, a source told the Daily Mail.

According to previous reports, Meghan had already met Queen Elizabeth at Balmoral Castle over the summer. However, the Daily Mail said that meeting was just between Harry and his grandmother so he could ask the Queen’s permission to introduce her to Meghan.
