This Friday, June 11, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was in the company of the First Lady of the United States, Jill Biden, for a visit to a school in Cornwall, England. She was notably questioned about Lilibet “Lili” Mountbatten-Windsor, the daughter of the Sussexes. It was NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell who asked the Duchess of Cambridge if she had any wishes regarding her niece. “I wish her the best. I can’t wait to meet her. We haven’t met her yet. I hope it will be soon,” replied Kate Middleton.
Kate was also asked if she had ever had the opportunity to FaceTime with the child. “No, I didn’t,” she replied. Recall that despite the chasm that there is between Princes William and Harry, the Cambridges have still issued a public statement of congratulations to the Sussexes last weekend. An announcement made following the birth of their daughter. “We are all delighted with the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili,” said Kate and Harry.
“Absolutely not a racist family”
Recall that the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry deteriorated well before the departure of the Sussexes in January 2020. Moreover, the last interaction between the two brothers was during the funeral of Prince Philip. And yet, they did not walk side by side in the procession. One of the highlights of this story is the interview given by Harry and Meghan to Oprah Winfrey. During which the Duchess of Sussex had denounced racist remarks against her and that of her son, Archie, coming from a member of the royal family.
Following which Prince William was forced to retort through a journalist that they are “absolutely not a racist family”. Many expect Harry to return to the UK for the unveiling of a statue honoring the Princess of Wales Lady Diana on July 1.
