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 whole world via a press release. “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 turn 1 on June 4. However, this date coincides with another, which is very important for the royal family. Indeed, it is that of 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 is celebrating her 70th anniversary of reign and, for the occasion , a whole weekend will be dedicated to celebrations. Buckingham Palace has announced that these will take place between June 2 and 5, 2022, exactly at the time of Lilibet’s birthday. Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry make the trip to the UK?
An important request. Prince Harry does everything to protect his wife and children. On each of his trips, he makes sure to be well surrounded so as not to encounter any problems. However, he recently took the British government to court. The reason ? The absence of his bodyguards. Indeed, the Duke of Sussex claims he needs to get his safety back. When he and Meghan Markle made the decision to end his royal duties, he was aware that he would no longer be able to benefit from taxpayer-funded security. However, he considers that he cannot do without it and does not hesitate to use drastic means to achieve this. The Daily Mail has 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 that of his family is not taken care of by the English government when they next come. So, if he does not win his case, will he travel to the United Kingdom for the Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II? 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 makes 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 little girl. Indeed, their greeting card was published on the Team Rubicon website, an organization supported by the Archewell Foundation. A highly anticipated shot that must have pleased Elizabeth II since the sovereign 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 little girl. Will they do it for the Queen of England’s Jubilee? The answer in a few months.
