William and Kate will visit Cardiff for the Platinum Jubilee on Saturday – while Harry and Meghan celebrate Lilibet’s birthday with the Queen.
Prince William, 39, and Duchess Kate, 40, will visit Cardiff, Wales, on Saturday as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, while Prince Harry, 37, and his wife, Duchess Meghan, 40, are more than 200 kilometers away with Queen Elizabeth II .(96) will celebrate the first birthday of their daughter Lilibet.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will join the performers and crew of a special platinum jubilee concert to be held in the grounds of Cardiff Castle, Buckingham Palace has confirmed, according to Mail Online.
The couple will watch rehearsals and meet some of the artists taking part in the celebrations, including British singer Bonnie Tyler (70, “It’s a Heartache”). In addition to choirs, bands and orchestras, the concert also features live performances by the most famous singers and entertainers from Wales.
Birthday party in Windsor
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan are set to introduce their daughter to the Queen at a birthday party. Since Lilibet was born on June 4, 2021, the parents have only been to the UK once, stopping by the Queen in April en route to the Invictus Games in The Hague, Netherlands.
Lilibet’s first birthday is to be celebrated at Frogmore Cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday. William and Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie, 32, and her family who are currently living in the Sussex estate have temporarily vacated it. For four days, it’s home again for Harry, Meghan, Lilibet and their three-year-old brother Archie on their first trip to the UK together.
Little Lilibet was born in California, unlike her three-year-old brother Archie, who was born at London’s Portland Hospital, one of the Queen’s favorite hospitals. The Queen met Archie two days after his birth on May 6, 2019.
More conciliatory tones between William and Harry
The news of William and Kate’s Cardiff trip comes amid reports that the Duke of Cambridge and his brother are working to mend their relationship with regular video calls and messaging.
Harry moved to California with his family in 2020, stepping down from his official role in the royal family.
