The birthday of Lilibet, the daughter of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in June coincides with an important date for Elizabeth II, as recalled by the Daily Mail.
An important moment. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their second child, a baby girl named Lilibet, on June 4. A happy news that was transmitted to the world via a statement. “It is with immense joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcome their daughter, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor to the world,” it read. Happy news for the Sussexes and their little girl will celebrate her 1st birthday on June 4. However, this date coincides with another one, which is very important for the royal family. Indeed, it is the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II. She ascended the throne on February 6, 1952, following the death of her father, George VI and was crowned at Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953. The sovereign celebrates her 70th year on the throne and for the occasion, a whole weekend will be dedicated to the celebrations. Buckingham Palace has announced that these will take place between June 2 and 5, 2022, which is right on Lilibet’s birthday. Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry make the trip to the UK?
A big ask. Prince Harry does everything to protect his wife and children. With each of his trips, he makes sure that he is well surrounded so that he does not encounter any worries. However, he recently took the British government to court. The reason? The absence of his bodyguards. Indeed, the Duke of Sussex claims that he needs to get his security back. When he and Meghan Markle made the decision to end their royal duties, he was aware that he would no longer have taxpayer-funded security. However, he feels that he can not do without it and does not hesitate to use the big means to achieve this. The Daily Mail revealed that his lawyers have sent a letter to the British Home Office to warn them that they will take legal action if the protection of Prince Harry and his family is not taken care of by the British government at their next visit. So, if he doesn’t get his way, will he make the trip to the UK for Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee? Or will he prefer to stay in the United States? The Duke of Sussex is the first to attack the British government. A story that is making a lot of talk since relations with the Windsors are always tense.
Elizabeth II: did she meet Lilibet Diana?
Since her birth in June 2021, the British were eager to discover the face of Lilibet Diana. It was only on December 23 that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry unveiled their baby girl. Indeed, their greeting card was published on the website Team Rubicon, an organization supported by the Archewell Foundation. A very expected picture and that must have pleased Elizabeth II since the sovereign has never met Lilibet Diana. If she had the opportunity to see her during video calls, the Duke of Sussex and his wife have not returned to the United Kingdom since the birth of their baby girl. Will they do it for the Jubilee of the Queen of England? The answer in a few months.
