Unexpected Prince Harry cameo in Biden's inauguration leaves fans stunned

While people around the world tuned in to watch Joe Biden and Kamala Harris' historic inauguration, eagle-eyed royal fans spotted a sneaky appearance by Prince Harry.

A large portrait of Prince Harry was spotted in the background of photos taken during President Biden's official visit to Arlington Cemetery.

Royal reporter Omid Scobie shared the photo.

"A blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo by a royal at President Biden’s #InaugurationDay visit to Arlington Cemetery. Well, kinda. Eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot a giant photo from Prince Harry’s 2013 visit hanging in the background while @JoeBiden caught up with the Clintons," he joked.

Prince Harry has close ties to the Biden family after working closely with Dr Jill Biden after the pair met during a reception for wounded soldiers at the British Ambassador's Residence in Washington.

Jill then travelled to London to attend Prince Harry's Invictus Games in 2014 and was joined by her husband at the 2016 games in Orlando.

Biden has joked that he was a "little worried" about the pair's friendship, stating: "Jill went to London for the last Games. She spent too much damn time with Prince Harry."

An insider close to Prince Harry's wife Meghan Markle told HollywoodLife that the inauguration was "very personal" for the couple.

"Harry's been friends with Joe and [wife] Jill [Biden] for years and Meghan has a huge amount of respect and admiration for them and for Kamala Harris," the source claimed.

"It's just a monumental moment in history — watching the first female VP being sworn in will for sure be emotional for Meghan."
