Prince William and Kate Middleton did not survive.
And now they’ve shown why…

Now Harry and Meghan seem to have been the pillars of the royal family’s scrutiny ever since they stepped down from their posts last January.
Meghan and Harry have said they want a more private life for their children and have moved to Los Angeles to live a more normal life away from the media spotlight.
However, many believe that the couple really slandered the royal family.
And that Harry’s relationship with his brother, father, grandparents “hangs in the balance.”
Though reports have circulated through the controversy that the royal family is “delighted” by the news of the birth of the couple’s second child, Lilibet.
Despite the fact that Harry constantly promotes them on all media platforms.
Harry’s relationship with his family remains strained.
As Charles apparently turned down his calls ahead of the 2020 announcement. Harry also said that he was financially cut off from his father after they retired and at first they were forced to live off Diana’s inheritance.
Asked by Oprah Winfrey during their TV interview about why they left, Harry blamed “lack of support and misunderstanding” for it.
He also said he wants to get away from the “genetic pain” he feels from his family, especially his father, Prince Charles.
“I feel very disappointed because he went through something similar, he knows what pain is, (and) Archie is his grandson.”
“But at the same time – I will always love him – but a lot of pain has happened and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try to heal this relationship. But they only know what they know, or what they are told.”
Then, of course, after the birth of Lilibet, disputes arose around her name …
One royal biographer, Angela Levine, considered it “rude”.
As you know, their girl was named Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
Paying tribute to Harry’s late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in 1997 when Harry was only twelve years old.
The name Lilibet is also a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II herself.
The queen gave herself the name of a family favorite in childhood, as she could not pronounce the name Elizabeth. The name was especially used by the Queen’s late husband, Prince Philip. It was also used by her loving father, King George VI.
But, despite the tribute, people were still dissatisfied with some even accusing Harry of breaking royal protocol by using the queen’s personal household name as a first name.
Harry has been heavily criticized for taking such a personal, intimate household name and giving it to his child after what some call an “insult attack” on his grandmother and the Firm.
Royal commentator Richard Kay suggested that it might be too far for Meghan and Harry to name their daughter Lilibet.
In a column for the Daily Mail, he said: “Giving a child the name Lilibet, the queen’s personal family nickname – even though they intend to use the diminutive ‘Lily’ for their daughter – is a risk.”
“Will this be seen as a presumptuous choice for a royal child who is eighth in line to the throne but who will grow up on the other side of the world and speak with an American accent?”
“It’s tempting to wonder if Harry would have been so bold in his choice if his grandfather Prince Philip – the only close family member allowed to call the Queen ‘Lilibet’ – was still alive.”
“There will no doubt be some discomfort and a strange raised eyebrow among the more wary courtiers at the palace at this latest convention-breaking exocet from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
Reaction to the name has been mixed, with some believing the couple begged the Queen for forgiveness, while others thought it was a touching tribute.
In the end, the controversy faded into the background …
But not for long…
Meghan planned to share everything about the controversy as well as her life as a Duchess and more during the segment on The Ellen Show..
And as you can imagine, people talked a lot about it…
Meghan’s laid-back interview appeared on the show last year on November 18…
And it detailed her life before and after joining the royal family.
Ellen teased the interview by saying:
“A lot has changed since the last time Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was on the Warner Brothers lot. Don’t miss the rest of our interview tomorrow.”
In the episode’s clip posted to Twitter, Meghan can be seen reminiscing about her life as an actress…
Megan told the talk show host: “I parked at the third exit and raced on, and the guards here were always saying, ‘Break your leg, I hope you understand.’ So today’s driving was very different.”
She even shared a comical moment before she made it big in the acting world…
Speaking about her old car, Meghan said: “It had a life of its own so I had this very old Ford Explorer Sport and at some point the key stopped working on the driver’s side so you couldn’t get in through the door. , so after listening, I parked in the back of the parking lot, opened the trunk and climbed in, closed the door behind me and crawled into my seats to get out. That’s how I went back and forth.”
Ellen continued to ask if anyone had noticed…
To which Meghan replied: “No, I would fight back, I would say:” Oh, I’m just looking for my resume, markers for my script. Maybe it’s back there,” and then crawl in and close it.”
Surprisingly, Megan also touched on the topic of family life.
Speaking about life in Montecito, Megan described the family as “just happy.”
But even though they showed how happy they are in California…
Megan has made a heartbreaking confession about Lilibet and people aren’t sure about the proposed treatment…
Megan said that Lilibet began to cut her teeth …
And it made her a lot of pain.
Meghan told the talk show host that she was looking for “something to ease” Lilibet’s teething pain.
To which Ellen jokingly replied, “Tequila.”
“That’s Aunt Ellen for you,” Megan replied when Ellen said, “That’s why I don’t have kids.”
But since then, Lilibet has been doing very well.
In fact, an adorable little girl is celebrating her first birthday.
At the same time, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a cute portrait of young Lilibet for her birthday.
Lilibet’s birthday was on Saturday, June 4th.
And in honor of her first birthday, her mom and dad attributed a portrait in which you can certainly see the red locks she received from her father.
The portrait was taken by the couple’s friend, Misan Harriman, at Frogmore Cottage, where they celebrated her birthday with a backyard picnic.
Everyone was obsessed with the photo of Lilibet wearing a charming blue dress.
But there was some drama…
How Prince William and Kate Middleton Missed the Celebration.
And the source said Page six that’s why…
“Things are still fraught – William is still wary of spending time alone with Harry because you never know what might be reported later,” they said.
The couple blamed their absence on being accidentally booked twice.
“It’s just a coincidence that they fell on the same day,” an insider told the publication. “There was no intentional insult.”
It is safe to say that there is a lot of drama around little Lilibet.
