The mum who captured the ‘perfect’ picture of Royal Family members at Christmas has met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Karen Murdoch, also known as Karen Anvil, from Watlington near King’s Lynn, met the Royal couple while they were out in Birmingham on International Women’s Day (March 8).

The 39-year-old, who works at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, shared photos from the day on Twitter.

She said: “Got to speak to Meghan today! Also shook Prince Harry’s hand and asked him if he liked the Xmas photo! He said he hoped I made lots of money from it!”

She added that the compliment from Harry about the picture meant more to her than anything.

Ms Murdoch’s photo, captured on a smartphone, showed Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle as they walked to the Christmas Day service at Sandringham Church.

The image made the front covers of the Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, Mirror and The Sun as well as featuring in Hello magazine and publications in Australia, Canada and America.
