Amidst all the hustle and bustle of the historic Platinum Jubilee, there were some sweet moments and interactions between members of the royal family that were carefully hidden from prying eyes and cameras. Amidst these reunions, Queen Elizabeth II finally got to meet her great-granddaughter and namesake Lilibet — the second child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But the newly minted one-year-old girl met another family member who was very happy to see her. Prince Charles and Lilibet reportedly met during a platinum anniversary, and the details of their meeting are absolutely adorable.
“It was a fantastic visit,” the source said. People, who also detailed that Harry and Meghan’s three-year-old son Archie was also present during the reunion. “The prince was delighted to see his grandson and granddaughter for the first time.” A previous report detailed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s visit with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at Clarence House – and it looks like Lilibet and Archie are paying a visit too!

“Prince and Duchess [of Cornwall] were absolutely thrilled to see them,” the source continued. A royal insider added that the Prince of Wales hasn’t seen Archie “for a while”. And knowing how much Charles excels in his role as a grandfather, we’re sure he had a great time reuniting with Archie and bonding with Lilibet, all without the camera scrutiny. “It was very unusual to spend some time with him,” a source told the publication. “He didn’t meet Lilibet, his granddaughter, and so meeting her for the first time was very emotional – it was wonderful.”
On their first family trip to the United Kingdom, the Sussexes kept a low profile so that the focus of the celebration was solely on Queen Elizabeth II. Naturally, reuniting with his grandmother was one of Harry’s top priorities, and he made sure that the long-reigning monarch had the opportunity to meet her great-granddaughter, although the possibility of any photographs was ruled out. Charles’ reunion with his son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren appears to have followed suit and we are just delighted to learn that this visit was meaningful to all involved.
