Real reason Kate Middleton turned down invite to Lilibet’s 1st birthday party — she was mocked by Meghan’s BFF

It can be fairly believed that Princess Lilibet remains uninformed of her parents’ past. The small child was born in the US after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had moved to Montecito, California, and her upbringing has been drastically different from her father’s. Lilibet actually celebrated her first birthday in the UK, but even that created the path for suspicion and hearsay.

Her royal aunt and uncle, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and her cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, were all absent from Lilibet’s 1st birthday party. The late Queen Elizabeth was present, but she reportedly refused to take a picture with her great-granddaughter.


On June 4, 2021, Harry and Meghan revealed the good news that their baby, Lilibet, had been born. Royal devotees will know that the girl is their second child after Archie, their son, was born in 2019.

According to reports, the children of Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips were the only ones that attended the celebration. Princess Kate, Prince William, and their kids decided not to go. Things haven’t really gotten much better since then; tensions were still very high. The official explanation for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s absence from Lilibet’s birthday celebration was that they had other obligations that day.

But during the Sussexes’ visit to the UK, Christopher Andersen, a royal specialist, told Us Weekly that the future king and queen made “no effort” to introduce George, Charlotte, and Louis to Lilibet.

One of Meghan Markle’s pals was displeased when Prince William and Kate Middleton turned down the invitation to Lilibet’s first birthday picnic at Frogmore Cottage. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills actress Garcelle Beauvais discussed the absence of the now-Prince and Princess of Wales from the birthday celebration in an interview with E!. She called Kate’s choice to skip the event “shady.”


“What a coincidence, we’re out of town; I’m washing my hair,” is what’s happening. There is some shade there, Beauvais said to E!. “They are unable to postpone the flight for a few hours in order to meet Lilibet and Archie?” Family conflicts are never pleasant, and they frequently become much more complicated when children are involved.

Harry hasn’t seen his nephews and niece in a while due to the ongoing “battle of the brothers” and Harry and Meghan’s relocation to the US. Tom Quinn, a royal biographer, claims that Harry is “devastated” at the division.
