MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry kept a low profile during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee after tension with the royal family over the past few years.
The couple attended the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday and a lip reader has revealed the very reassuring line Meghan gave Harry during the service.

At one stage in the 50-minute ceremony, Meghan was seen telling him: “Yeah, will be fine”.
Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, were barely visible in public during the Queen’s four-day celebration.
Meghan and Harry were pictured shushing younger royals in the Major General’s Office at Trooping the Colour on Thursday.
It’s claimed the arrangements were months in the making, and specifically designed to prevent the brothers from coming face-to-face.
Ingrid Seward said to Fabulous: “The excuse was that as they are no longer working members, they were to take a literal back seat.
“The reality is the Palace were determined there would be no photographs that might reveal any animosity between the brothers.
“Becoming a ‘second row royal’ is difficult for Harry to swallow.”
An insider said the couple didn’t stay for the four-day pageant.
The couple have now arrived back in California after jetting home BEFORE the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee ended.
They are believed to have been driven from Frogmore Cottage to Farnborough Airport before taking off at 1.30pm.
Airport staff could be seen offloading large items of luggage from the jet, including what appeared to be a highchair and wooden swing.

Meanwhile, a tired looking Harry was pictured in the passenger seat of a black Range Rover which took the family home.
An insider said: “There was no fanfare, they just went.
“They didn’t stick around for the Platinum Jubilee pageant.”
They also missed Saturday night’s epic party at Buckingham Palace – where Charles and William were cheered by the 120,000-strong crowd when they delivered incredible speeches.
The Sussexes had pledged to “stick to the script” and not plan any antics away from the Platinum Jubilee after jetting in from Santa Barbara on Wednesday.
The Sun on Sunday revealed the Sussexes were visited by younger royals, including Zara and Mike Tindall’s children, for a garden party to celebrate daughter Lilibet’s first birthday.
It is also believed a birthday bash was organised at the cottage with picnic-style snacks, cake, balloons and party games.
Zara and Mike Tindall’s children – Mia, 8, Lena, 3, and one-year-old Lucas – are thought to have attended.
Other guests were Peter Phillips and ex-wife Autumn’s daughters Savannah, 11, and 10-year-old Isla.
Archie’s godfather Charlie Van Staubenzee and his brother Tom are also said to have attended.
The Sun also understands the Queen, 96, had met Lilibet before she turned one.
