Meghan and Harry use unclear snaps of Archie and Lilibet to troll the world, pal says

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are yet to share a picture of daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor – but they're certainly teasing the public, a pal says.

The Duchess of Sussex, 40, released a birthday video last week in which a brief frame showed what looked like Harry holding a newborn baby.

The couple also shared a picture of Archie holding balloons to mark his 2nd birthday, but it was blurry with a filter over it meaning you could barely see the youngster.

Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom, says this tactic is entirely deliberate – and the pair are "trolling" the public.

"This was, as I think we've come to experience from the Sussexes, a photo of Archie but not too clear," he said on his On Heir podcast.

"I think this is their way of trolling the world."

The Sussexes' family snaps are in stark contrast to the much clearer and more focused pictures released by Kate Middleton and Prince William of their children – including an adorable picture of Charlotte holding a butterfly at the weekend.

Meghan and Harry previously released an image of the family in Enid Blyton-esque style, which looked more like a pen portrait.

And when Meghan announced her second pregnancy with baby Lili, she released a picture where she cuddling Archie but his head was hidden.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have long denied personally co-operating with Finding Freedom authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

But the two writers have boasted of having 'unique access and the participation of those closest to the couple' – which is unlikely to have been given without Harry and Meghan's knowledge or permission.

Kate Middleton has chosen a different route when it comes to family pictures and occasionally offers royal fans a glimpse into their lives.

Meghan decided against a traditional photocall of mum and baby after the birth of Archie, although she later said that was because she was not asked to stage one.

Harry and Meghan have spoken openly about wanting to guard their family's privacy. One of the main reasons the Sussexes went to Los Angeles was to escape unwanted intrusion from the media.

They fought tooth and nail when earlier this year, a paparazzi shot of a heavily pregnant and masked Meghan, casually dressed in jeans and a black T-shirt as she carried Archie, appeared on an American website.

And early last year, Meghan was snapped holding Archie in a park by paparazzi. The couple filed a lawsuit over invasion of privacy.
