Yet, as the pair moved to California in March 2020, the Queen is still yet to meet her new great-grandchild, despite her taking her childhood name of Lilibet.
While coronavirus travel restrictions are at least partly to blame – UK travel has been severely restricted since the couple moved abroad in an attempt to halt the spread of coronavirus – fans are still speculating as to when exactly the great-grandmother will be able to meet the newborn.
She is also long overdue a catch up with two-year-old Archie, Harry and Meghan’s firstborn, who has lived outside of the UK for the majority of his life now and only met his great-grandmother a handful of times.
One Twitter user said: “Will the Queen get to meet her newest great-granddaughter, Lilibet Diana, anytime soon?”
Let’s hope that when she does, she steers clear of the below Royal family habit… because the family are, ahem, known for somewhat out-there comments when meeting the newest additions to the family.
Like? Well, it’s believed that when the Queen met Prince William for the first time, she made a rather funny comment about his appearance.
A hardly-seen-before article in The Daily Express claims that when Prince Charles and Diana welcomed their first born, Charles said: “The arrival of our small son has been an astonishing experience and one that has meant more to me than I ever could have imagined.”
“I am so thankful I was beside Diana’s bedside the whole time because I felt as though I’d shared deeply in the process of birth and as a result was rewarded by seeing a small creature who belonged to us even though he seemed to belong to everyone else as well.”
In response, it’s claimed that the Queen simply stated: “Thank goodness he doesn’t have ears like his father.”
Similarly, it’s believed that Philip thought Prince Charles looked like a ‘plum pudding’ when he met him for the first time – so the off-the-cuff comments certainly run in the family.
So… any thoughts on how the Queen might greet little Lilibet?
