Eagle-eyed royal fans spot unusual Buckingham Palace detail

Eagle-eyed royal fans spot unusual Buckingham Palace detail

In a new photo of Buckingham Palace released this week, eagle-eyed royal fans have spotted an unusual detail. 

A photo of the royal residence was shared to the Royal Family's Twitter account, following Her Majesty's private audience with British pianist Imogen Cooper to present her with the Medal for Music. 

As the picture was posted, royal spectators were quick to zoom in on the image to hunt for hidden elements and insights into royal daily life. 

As the image was examined, fans noticed an unseen collection of photographs kept on one of the Queen's side tables. 

While the Queen is known for displaying family photos throughout her various properties, one photo in the collection stood out to royal fans.

The photo to the left of the vase of roses is of Peter Phillips, the Queen's eldest grandson, and his ex-wife Autumn.

While it is unclear when the framed photo was captured, the couple finalised their divorce in June 2021 after 13 years of marriage. 

Other images spotted include a black-and-white wedding photo of Zara and Mike Tindall from 2011 and a photograph of Prince William and Kate Middleton from their engagement photoshoot in 2010.

The fourth photo in a smaller gold frame has caught a lot of attention, as it shows a picture of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from 2018. 

A number of social media users were quick to share their reactions to the background photographs, with many calling them “beautiful”.

“Lovely to see a photo of Meghan and Harry on display,” one person tweeted.

“Her Majesty said even though they've left their jobs they would always be members of the family and great to see a reflection of that.”
