The youngest child of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan is one year old. Will the Queen meet her great-grandchild today?
Queen’s great-granddaughter Lilibet has received congratulations from the palace on her first birthday. “We wish Lilibet a happy 1st birthday,” said the official account of the royal family on Twitter on Saturday, posting a balloon emoji.
As reported by the media, Queen Elizabeth II wanted to meet her second youngest great-grandchild in person on Saturday.
According to information from the newspaper “Sun”, the audience for Lilibet’s family with father Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan is not the first time that the Queen has seen the toddler in person. Accordingly, Elizabeth met little Lilibet, named after the monarch’s family nickname, on one of the previous days.
The number 8 in line to the British throne is currently visiting her father’s home country for the first time. The family, which also includes Lilibet’s big brother Archie (3), has been living in the United States for a good two years after Harry and Meghan gave up their royal duties. Their attendance at the Queen’s 70th jubilee had fueled hopes that tensions within the royal family could be resolved.
Above all, Harry’s father Prince Charles and his older brother Prince William are said to resent the couple’s sharp criticism and serious allegations against the palace. Meghan and Harry attended the Queen’s thanksgiving service at London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral on Friday, traveling in a convoy with other family members. They were cheered on by onlookers. At the ceremony, however, William and Harry avoided each other, British media reported.
