The youngest members of Queen Elizabeth’s family, who often don’t live close by, were introduced to her before she passed away last year.
Harry and Meghan’s kids, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, were present as the queen celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in June of last year, marking 70 years as monarch.
On June 4, Princess Lilibet turned one, and according to reports, Queen Elizabeth was present to wish her a happy birthday. The monarch, however, reportedly objected to having her photo taken with the young princess.
During that meeting, a former member of the royal staff attacked Harry and Meghan. Former Diana butler Paul Burrell claims that Queen Elizabeth welcomed Harry and his family to her residence so she could present Lilibet with a birthday cake.
However, based on The happy couple announced the birth of their daughter, Lilibet, on June 4, 2021. The daughter is their second child after Archie, their son, was born in 2019. Royal devotees will know this.
There was another opportunity for Harry and Meghan to obtain the picture, but Queen Elizabeth reportedly declined to take one due of her eye when she spotted the child Lilibet, who has since grown up to be a princess.
Paul Burrell, Princess Diana’s former butler, who served her from 1987 to 1997, claimed that Queen Elizabeth had planned another celebration for the infant’s first birthday.
According to Burrell, Queen Elizabeth was ecstatic to honour her newest great-granddaughter. Even a custom cake was designed for her. She waited, but Harry and Meghan turned down the invitation so the light was never lit.
She had seen her the previous day. But the queen ordered a single-candle birthday cake for herself on her special day. And they were never seen. Never was a candle lit there.
The next day, Burrell recalls, “she asked if perhaps they’d like to come up for tea again and was told they’ve gone.” “What do you mean they left?” she questioned. They have returned to America. Oh no, they never bid me farewell,” remarked Burrell.
Shortly after Lilibet’s birthday picnic, Harry and Meghan made the decision to depart the UK. Burrell claimed that Queen Elizabeth was “confused” that they left without saying goodbye. They offended the queen, but how? The previous butler enquired.
Well, I don’t know how someone could accomplish that. Why would you want to, they are not her family? She lacked all the traits we typically associate with other people, such as resentment, rage, and envy. She had a really straightforward soul. I wish everyone had known her the same way I did.
