The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly shown their newborn daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor to the matriarch, Queen Elizabeth II, on a video call.
AceShowbiz -The Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced baby Lilibet to Queen Elizabeth on a video call.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan welcomed their daughter into the world on 4 June (21) and she has already met her great grandmother, albeit remotely as the family now live in California.
As reported by People magazine, the couple “were very excited and couldn’t wait to share that their daughter arrived” as soon as they got back from Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
It’s said that the duke and duchess – who also have two-year-old son Archie – could bring Lili to meet her family in person over Christmas if Covid-19 restrictions have relaxed enough for them to do so.
The moniker chosen by the couple for their baby is actually Queen Elizabeth’s nickname whilst the tot’s middle name is Diana in honour of Harry’s beloved late mother, the Princess of Wales.
A statement released on their Archewell website read, “Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honour her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.”
After announcing the birth of their daughter, Buckingham Palace confirmed the queen, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well his brother Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge were all “delighted” with the news.
And the queen has reportedly invited her grandson Harry for lunch at Windsor Castle when he’s back in the U.K. next month.
He will be returning to Britain for the unveiling of a statue in honour of his late mother on 1 July and his grandmother is keen for them to reconnect and work through any problems.
“It’s a typically magnanimous gesture by Her Majesty. The lunch will be a chance for them to talk things through,” a source said.
