Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stay HOME for Party at the Palace after celebrating Lilibet's first birthday 'privately'

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are staying home for Party at the Palace after celebrating daughter Lilibet's first birthday privately.

The couple are keeping a low profile this weekend after the Queen reportedly said there were to be "no dramas" during the Jubilee.

And while senior royals including the Cambridges, Charles and Camilla and Anne will enjoy the music tonight, Brits won't spot the Sussexes at the concert.

The Queen will also not be attending to see the show. She will remain at Windsor and watch the event on television.

Harry and Meghan have so far only made one public appearance during the weekend.

They arrived for yesterday's service of thanksgiving hand-in-hand.

Harry was seen laughing with friends and family at St Paul's from his seat in the second row.

It's understood palace aides worked for months behind the scenes to perfectly choreograph the service so the brothers wouldn't come face-to-face.

The Cambridges and the Sussexes were sat across the aisle from each other.

They arrived and left at different times, and did not acknowledge each other throughout the event.

Meg and Harry also didn't stand beside Her Majesty on the palace balcony as the four-day bonanza got under way on Thursday.

However, both watched Trooping the Colour from a window at the Major General's Office.

They could be seen playing with Zara Tindall's eldest daughter and the Queen's great-granddaughter Savannah Philips.

Today, they celebrated Lilibet's first birthday at Frogmore Cottage.

It's understood the Queen had "prioritised" her attendance at the gathering after withdrawing from the service at St Paul's.

She also missed the Epsom Derby, one of her favourite events of the year.
