It appears a framed portrait of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex displayed in Buckingham Palace has vanished.

The picture of Prince Harry (35) and his wife, Meghan (38), was first spotted by royal watchers when Queen Elizabeth (93) met with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in July, E! Online reports.

The portrait was nestled among other pictures of the royal family, including a portrait of Harry’s brother, Prince William, and his wife, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge (both 37), and another of the siblings in military uniform, according to Cosmopolitan.

While snaps of William with Harry and Kate remain, the portrait of Meghan and Harry taken at their engagement shoot is nowhere to be seen, Metro UK reports.

A picture of the queen meeting the High Commissioner for Grenada, Lakisha Grant, shows the empty space where Harry and Meghan’s portrait once stood in the background – sending the internet in a frenzy.

While some argue that the queen has simply decided to do a bit of light redecorating, others speculate that this is because of the couple’s recent candid interview.

Harry and Meghan have received criticism for being so open during an interview for the ITV documentary that followed their tour of Southern Africa.

During the doccie the couple revealed the struggles they’ve faced being under constant scrutiny from the media.
