Queen Elizabeth II has finally got to see one of her youngest great-granddaughters, who also shares her name, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, after the little one’s parents – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – took her and her elder brother Archie, 3, to the UK for the monarch’s Platinum jubilee celebrations. The much-awaited union reportedly happened on Thursday, June 2, as the four-day functions started. The 96-year-old sovereign saw the 11-month-old daughter of the Sussexes two days before her first birthday.

Speaking of the meeting, royal commentator Omid Scobie told BBC Breakfast on Friday, June 3, as reported by The Independent: “I think people are expecting some sort of big birthday extravagant event, that we’re going to see photographs from. From what I’m told, we shouldn’t expect anything. Those moments with Lilibet are very much private between them and the Queen and of course we know how much she’s been looking forward to it.”

The 40-year-old co-author of ‘Finding Freedom’ went on to say, “They’ve been held back by a pandemic. Of course the times that Harry has been here it’s just been by himself for quite sombre occasions. And so this really was the first time. Of course we know the Queen went back to Windsor Castle yesterday, the couple went back to Windsor as well where they’re staying at Frogmore Cottage. So that would have been the first moment or the first chance for her to meet her namesake.”

Scobie also added: “I spoke with people close to the couple... who said that they want to be as low-profile as possible during this trip. It’s almost hard to believe, but I think yesterday Trooping the Colour was a great example. We didn’t really catch sight of them on TV cameras.”

Besides, it has been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex participated in the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday. However, the Queen was not there due to the “discomfort” she had during Thursday’s events. A statement from Buckingham Palace regarding the same read: “Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in tomorrow’s National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, Her Majesty, with great reluctance, has concluded that she will not attend. The Queen is looking forward to participating in tonight’s beacon lighting event at Windsor Castle, and would like to thank all those who made today such a memorable occasion.”

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan’s return as well as their children, especially Lilibet’s meeting with the Queen, has grabbed a lot of eyeballs online with a user tweeting, “I still can't believe that no one is questioning if these children are actually H and MM's!!! So they just let anyone into the Family??! I just can't understand!! What good does it do HMTQ to meet Lilibet if it's not actually her great grandchild??!!” Another user shared, “Send them back home. They couldn't come when Prince Philip was dying or to his memorial or to comfort the Queen. They are just here for the PR surrounding the Queen's jubilee 😡.” “The thing is, they are really offended with cause. Sussexes are now professionally offended about everything. I hope seeing the child makes the Queen happy,” the third one remarked.

A tweet read, “I hope W&C or Charles never speak to them again after their betrayals, the Q can but when the Q gone they should be cut out completely. Have a “family squabble” is one thing, but humiliate your family in front of millions isn’t the same.” Another tweet added: “I was really happy for the Sussexes in the beginning. A lovely fairy tale. Can't stand them now. Cluster B grifters.”
