Earlier this week, Queen Elizabeth II captured the world's attention as she delivered her 65th Queen's Speech, which officially opened Parliament. At that event, she not only broke a "royal tradition," but also sent a "subtle message" about Prince Charles' royal future. Even though so much is thought to be known about the famous family, there have been many instances when they have concealed certain parts of their lives from view.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been notoriously private about their lives as a couple since their wedding on May 19, 2018. Due to the fact that the public will likely never find out who introduced them and where they honeymooned, some have said that the royals intentionally keep their lives "shrouded in mystery."

It has also been reported that when the members of the royal family want to go about scheduling a time to meet they do so in a very private manner. In fact, this was said to be how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced baby Archie's arrival on May 6.

Additionally, there are certain things that will supposedly quietly disqualify your application if you attempt to gain royal employment.

Now, the royals are said to be facing a new scandal due to the fact that a man is claiming that Queen Elizabeth II's DNA could prove that his grandmother once had an affair with then-Prince of Wales, Edward VIII.

However, not everything is kept away from public view. Recently, Kate Middleton and Prince William arrived for a history-making tour of Pakistan, while Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just made their own appearance in Africa, which some said exemplified "bravery."
