Next weekend is all about the Queen’s 70th jubilee. This could lead to a special encounter.
In addition to the public parties, the Queen has a special gathering ahead of her on her anniversary weekend:
The monarch is said to meet her great-granddaughter Lilibet, who is named after her, a year after her birth. This was reported on Monday by the Times and other British media.
Prince Harry (37) and Duchess Meghan (40) want to come to England with their entire family for the jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II (96), which will be extensively celebrated next weekend. Lilibet’s older brother Archie (3), whom the Queen saw as a baby, is also there. They are to be accommodated at Frogmore Cottage near Windsor Castle.
On Saturday (4 June) little Lilibet will celebrate her first birthday and on that day, according to the report, could meet her 96-year-old great-grandmother, who has already canceled her participation in the Epsom Derby horse race on the same day. However, she made this decision in order not to overstrain her strength, it said. The public is expected to see the Queen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the “Trooping the Color” parade on Thursday and at the service in London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday.
