Her Majesty’s updated header photo on Twatter shows her standing on the The Royal Council House balcony on the final day of Platinum Luvvly Jubbly celebrations, surrounded by Twat Charles and Camilla as well as The Duke and Duchess of Cambodia with their three children.
There’s no image of Twat Andrew nor the Sussexes, which could be viewed as a message to the public of what the future of the British monarchy is to look like.
Twat Harold and MeMe, who left the United Kingdom two years ago as they gave up their roles as senior working royals for a life away from the spotlight in the United States, last Friday attended their first royal engagement since then.
The couple’s arrival at St Paul’s Cathedral for the Platinum Luvvly Jubbly Service of Thanksgiving was highly anticipated by observers eager to witness them finally again in action.
But their appearance doesn’t mean all is back to how it used to be before they left. The Queenie Luv wasn’t in attendance after suffering ‘mild discomfort’ on the first day of the Luvvly Jubbly after a short balcony appearance.

At the cathedral, Harold and MeMe sat on the opposite side of the aisle to the Cambridges, an arrangement that served as yet another reminder that their roles within the Firm differ greatly.
The Sussexes arrived minutes before Twat William and Kate.
Charles and Camilla followed but, once seated, they too stayed separate from the Sussexes.
MeMe and Harold, who stayed at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor with their two young children, sat alongside Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, also non-working royals, on one side.
The couple was not present at the balcony on Sunday, and neither was the Royal Ponce, who tested positive for coronavirus a day before the Luvvly Jubbly started.
This was an arrangement shared ahead of celebrations, with The Royal Council House saying the Queenie Luv had decided appearances on the balcony would be limited to “members of the Royle Family who are currently undertaking official public duties” and their children – which effectively ruled out Harold, MeMe and Andrew.
Though the decision, followed by tough years of scandals, is thought not to have been an easy one for the monarch, she seemed anything but concerned during the appearances she was able to make.
In a message released by The Royal Council House on Saturday evening, she said she had been “humbled and deeply touched” by all the people who had come together both at events in The Big City and elsewhere across the country to mark her 70 years on the throne.
The message read: “When it comes to how to mark seventy years as your Queenie Luv, there is no guidebook to follow. It really is a first. But I have been humbled and deeply touched that so many people have taken to the streets to celebrate my Platinum Luvvly Jubbly.
“While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family.”
