The Queen is reportedly ‘desperate’ to meet her great-granddaughter Lilibet in person for the first time, as her first birthday approaches.
- The Queen is yet to meet her baby great-granddaughter Lilibet, despite sharing a very special connection with her.
- Both the Queen and Prince Charles have expressed their sadness over not yet meeting Lilibet, who was named after the Queen, in person
- This royal news comes after it was reported that the Queen will ‘never live at Buckingham Palace again’ as she makes her move to Windsor permanent.
The Queen, who is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee this year, has never met Prince Harry and Meghan’s second child, despite sharing a very special connection with her. Lilibet was named after the Queen’s childhood nickname, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paying tribute to the monarch with their daughter’s name, despite stepping back from the royal family two years ago.
Royal author Brian Hoey, told the Express, “I have heard from people I know within the Royal Household she really would desperately like to see the baby in this way.”
However, plans have been thrown into disarray, amid a row surrounding Harry’s security requests and continued royal rift. It’s even been claimed that Meghan now has “no plans” to ever return to the UK.
Another royal pro, Tim Bower, has warned that Harry could regret not taking this opportunity to see and introduce his daughter to his grandmother, who has suffered numerous health scares this year – including testing positive for Covid-19 just last month.
He continued, “If they don’t come back soon, and Lilibet doesn’t meet the Queen and Harry doesn’t celebrate her life and reign with her, it could be something he comes to regret forever.”
His father, Prince Charles, has also expressed his incredible sadness over not meeting Lilibet. He is also desperate to meet his granddaughter, even reportedly extending an invitation for the family to stay with him at Clarence House if they choose to return.
