Even though Meghan Markle popped over from Windsor over the weekend to take part in Trooping the Colour, a.k.a. Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday celebration, she's still officially on maternity leave after giving birth to baby Archie Harrison last month. (She even wore a new ring, reportedly in honor of her son.)

Prince Harry, meanwhile, has been carrying on with his official royal engagements and meetings, like today (June 11) when he sat down with the Prime Minister of Nepal, KP Sharma Oli, at Kensington Palace. But Markle was still in the mix thanks to a photo of the couple that has never been released to the public. Per People, the image of the couple was taken by Alexi Lubimorski during their engagement shoot in December 2017.

You can see it on the desk behind Oli's shoulder.

And here's a closer look of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in coordinating blues, plus each one's signature. The black frame also features their joint H & M monogram.

While the photo is not one that has been made publicly available, this isn't the first time we've seen it. Royal fans actually spotted a copy of the photo at Buckingham Palace during a meeting between the Queen and George Brandis, the Australian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom. (You can see it on the side table, next to the red lamp.)

Turns out royals are just like us and like to keep photos of their loved ones at home and at the office. If only there was a new photo of baby Archie tucked in there somewhere too.
