During Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry came with their children, Lilibet and Archie
The opportunity for Prince Charles to meet his granddaughter, Lilibet, for the first time
And according to a royal source, the Queen’s eldest son was delighted with this meeting
While Meghan Markle had not set foot in the United Kingdom since her departure from the British royal family, the Duchess of Sussex had traveled to London to celebrate the jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. With Archie, Lilibet and Prince Harry, the American actress was able to see the Windsors again. The little girl, aged one year, had finally been able to meet her great-grandmother but also her grandfather Prince Charles. According to a royal source, whose comments were relayed by the People site, the husband of Camilla Parker-Bowles was delighted to meet the daughter of his second son.
“It was a fantastic visit. The prince was delighted to see his grandson and meet his granddaughter for the first time,” she said, adding that it was “wonderful” to have the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle back in Britain. A really hoped-for meeting for Prince Charles: “The Prince and Duchess [of Cornwall] were absolutely delighted to see them”, continues the source. And for good reason, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II had not seen his grandson Archie “for a while”.
A memorable day for Prince Charles
This day will therefore remain engraved in the memory of Prince Charles: “It was very special to spend time with him. He had not met Lilibet, his granddaughter, and therefore meeting her for the first time was very moving, it was a wonderful thing,” the source said. Palace sources also revealed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry paid for their trip to Britain themselves. “When they decided they wanted to live abroad, independent of support from the royal family, they said they wanted to be financially independent. And they succeeded.”
