A year after marrying Meghan Markle, Prince Harry became a father for the first time on May 6, 2019. If his grandmother, Elizabeth II had the opportunity to meet his son, Archie, she unfortunately did not have the chance to see his daughter, Lilibet. Born in California, the latter has indeed never visited the United Kingdom, to the great displeasure of the Queen of England, who wants more than anything to meet her. In the columns of L’Express, the Royal author Brian Hoey said: “I’ve heard from people I know in the Royal household that she would really like to see the baby. I think she’d love it, I wonder if it’s going to happen, I’d love to think it might.” According to him, this meeting could ease tensions between Prince Harry and the British royal family.
If this Royal author is optimistic, this is not the case of the royal family expert, Richard Fitzwilliams. According to him, if Elizabeth II saw her great-granddaughter in a video call, she would not be ready to take her in her arms … He said: “It is increasingly unlikely. If the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not bring Lili, it is obvious that it will not happen. It’s something that’s not going to be resolved any time soon. And it doesn’t look like they’re coming here.” While Prince Harry said he would not travel to the UK if he did not get enhanced police protection for himself and his family, royal biographer Phil Dampier had said in the Sun’s columns, “I don’t think Meghan will ever come back to this country and I think that’s a very good excuse not to come back. Harry might come, but it gives Meghan a good excuse not to come and also not to bring the children.”
Prince Charles suffers from not knowing Lilibet
At 73, the Prince of Wales is the proud grandfather of five children. If he has a special relationship with George, Charlotte and Louis, he would regret not knowing Prince Harry‘s children better. Last September, Royal family expert Nick Bullen said: “I think Prince Charles really wants to meet his granddaughter. Prince Charles is extremely sad about everything that has happened.” For now, only Princess Eugenie has met little Lilibet…
