Did Prince Harry tell Meghan to 'turn around' at Trooping the Colour?

Prince Harry told the Duchess of Sussex to 'turn around' during Trooping the Colour, a lip reading expert has revealed.

The Duke of Sussex, 34, was filmed speaking to Meghan, 37, while she was stood in front of him on the balcony of Buckingham Palace last Saturday.

At one point the Duchess turned back to speak to her husband twice in quick succession, prompting Prince Harry to utter two brief phrases in response. The exchange sparked widespread speculation on social media over what was said.

Analysing the footage, lip reading expert Jacqui Press concluded Prince Harry said to Meghan, 'yes, that's right' when she looked at him the first time, before adding: 'Turn around... Look,' when she turned back to him a short time later.

The exchange came moments before the start of the national anthem. The Royal Family traditionally face forwards out to the crowds while the anthem is played.

For Trooping the Colour, which marked the Queen's official birthday, the Duchess of Sussex was stood in front of her husband, and behind James, Viscount Severn, 11, and Isla Phillips, seven, who were at the front of the balcony.
