Must See 01/06/2022

Lilibet, the daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, may meet her namesake, Queen Elizabeth, for the first time this weekend, which also happens to be her first birthday.

Lilibet will visit the UK this weekend with her parents and brother Archie to celebrate Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

For the first time since their controversial royal exit in March 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will reunite with much of the wider royal family in the coming days.

The Queen will welcome Prince Harry, Meghan and their two children to Windsor Castle on June 4th, Lilibet's first birthday.

According to the Telegraph UK, Her Majesty's schedule has changed during the Jubilee, allowing her to meet the Sussexes on Saturday.

According to the publication, the Queen will not be attending the Epsom Derby, and Princess Anne will take her place.

It would mean the monarch would be able to meet her great-granddaughter Lilibet for the first time, and her three-year-old grandson Archie, whom she has not seen since his birth in 2019.

The Queen last saw Prince Harry and Meghan in April when they called into Windsor on their trip to the Invictus Games in the Netherlands.

The Sussexes are likely to stay at Frogmore Cottage while in the UK, which was where they lived before relocating to Canada in November 2019.

With the Jubilee, Lilibet's first birthday and Archie reuniting with his great-grandmother, it really is a weekend packed full to the brim of celebrations!
