As claimed by a royal expert, the Queen is now 'desperate' to meet her great-granddaughter Lilibet. Lilibet is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's second child who was welcomed on June 4, 2021. They are currently living in California.

Author Brian Hoey, who has written about the royal family fairly extensively, told some publications that the 95-year old Royal is eagerly waiting to see her nine-month-old great-grandchild in person.

Prince Harry, 37 and Meghan Markle, 40 are yet to travel to the United Kingdom with their kids. It is believed that, in nine months, the Queen has only met her 11th great-grandchild virtually, over a video call. The Queen is set to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee this year. Despite offering to pay for personal protective security himself when in the UK, Prince Harry was denied the 'same degree' of protection and has since brought a legal challenge against the Home Office to settle the matter. The High Court was previously told that the couple wants to bring their kids, Archie, 2 and Lilibet, but they do not feel safe. Though they do want to cross the Atlantic, in the current security scenario, safety is a significant concern. The family of four currently lives in Montecito, California.

Royal author Mr. Hoey said, "I have heard from people I know within the Royal Household, she really would desperately like to see the baby in this way." He added, "I think she would love to, I wonder whether it is going to happen, I would love to think it could." He also indicated that there is a belief that once the Queen meets the youngest member of the Sussex family, the friction in her relationship with the Prince would also heal, along with the couple's rapport with other royals.

Mr. Hoey also said that the Queen would welcome Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with open arms if they ever visit the UK with their children. Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor has been named after the Queen's childhood nickname. Mr. Hoey further added, "I am absolutely sure the Queen holds no feelings of disapproval towards Harry and Meghan, none whatsoever, she would certainly welcome them back if they came."

An unnamed source also said, "They were very excited and couldn't wait to share that their daughter arrived." After Lilibet was born, the royals were hopeful the couple would cross the Atlantic and bring their kids to the palace. However, nine months later, they are yet to do so.
