While Queen Elizabeth II’s hospital stay has worried the British kingdom, Meghan Markle and Harry reportedly say they want to expedite little Lilibet Diana’s first meeting with her great-grandmother.
The first meeting is becoming a reality. While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expected to finally put little Lilibet Diana in the arms of Elizabeth II after accepting the invitation to attend the Diana Awards in December, the introductions should be made sooner than expected … Indeed, Prince Harry said he “hopes to be home for Christmas with Meghan, if not before, so she can finally meet Lilibet and see Archie again.” An information given by a source close to the royal family to Us Weekly magazine and relayed by our colleagues of the Daily Express Thursday, October 28.
The first hospitalization of the Queen at the hospital of King Edward VII to undergo preliminary examinations has certainly accelerated the process of this future meeting. Having gone to live across the Atlantic, far from his grandmother, the Duke of Sussex was worried about the situation: “He felt helpless in Montecito, 5,000 miles away, and kept asking about the Queen,” another insider told Us Weekly.
A meeting that will be soon
Lilibet Diana, new member of the British royal family since June 4, 2021, had only been able to catch a glimpse of her great-grandmother through WhatsApp, unlike her brother Archie. This first meeting with Elizabeth II could possibly ease some tensions after Meghan Markle’s announcement that she will not have her daughter baptized at Windsor Castle. “There will be no christening in the UK. It’s not going to happen,” The Telegraph said on October 11.
