Harry and Meghan travel to England with Archie and Lilibet during the Queen’s 70th anniversary. And that only means one thing: the Queen is finally going to meet her great-grandchild!
June is a special month for Queen Elizabeth. Not only does she celebrate her 70th anniversary, her great-grandchild Lilibet also celebrates her first birthday.
The long-awaited meeting
Harry and Meghan will travel to England in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s 70th anniversary. And although they left the kids at home on the last visit, this time they don’t. It is the first time since Harry and Meghan moved to America that they take their children to England.
The Queen has been waiting for almost a year to meet Lilibet. Archie has met them, but hasn’t seen them since the family moved to America. When Harry and Meghan paid a visit to the Queen last month, hopes grew in England that Elizabeth would finally meet her great-grandchild. Unfortunately, the couple left the children at home.
It has previously been claimed that the Queen will never see her great-grandchildren again. Many saw Prince Philip’s memorial service, which Harry did not attend, as the last chance to meet Lilibet for the first time.
Celebrating Lilibet’s birthday
But now it turns out there’s a reason Harry and Meghan have been waiting all this time to take their kids to England, Germany’s Bunte reports. Lilibet celebrates her first birthday on June 4, and she will not spend it at home in Montecito, but in England with the Queen. There they will celebrate Lilibet’s birthday and the Queen’s 70th anniversary as one big family.
