Harry and Meghan, for Lilibet’s birthday (then the new trip to London)
On Sunday, June 4, Lilibet Diana, the second daughter of Harry and Meghan Markle, turned two years old. And British royal watchers couldn’t help but notice the social silence from the British Royal House. No birthday wishes appeared on any of the Crown’s various online profiles. Things were different last year. Even William and Kate Middleton, despite the tensions with the Sussexes, had wished “a very happy birthday to Lilibet, who is turning one today.” The same words appeared on Buckingham Palace’s Twitter profile and on Charles and Camilla’s. This time nothing, no social message. Of course, this does not exclude that some members of the royal family have wished the little one privately. At least Grandpa Charles, who according to British press would have also given Lilibet a gift: he would have sent her a cubby house, a wooden house to put in the garden similar to the one in which Elizabeth II played as a child. True or not, this year Lilibet celebrated her birthday for the first time without the social wishes of the Crown. And thousands of kilometers away from the royal family. Last year, the celebrations for Lilibet took place in London, where the family had flown for the late Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.
Harry and Meghan Markle on the brink of divorce? For some it is so
As shown in the Netflix documentary Harry and Meghan, then the Sussexes organized a picnic at Frogmore Cottage with a handful of guests including Misha Nonoo, Markle’s close friend, and very few royals. This year Lilibet Diana celebrated in California. And it seems that her American birthday party was a source of further tensions between Harry and Meghan Markle. For some time it has been rumored that the Sussexes are about to divorce. For various reasons, including completely different interests. Meghan would be aiming for a worldly life and perhaps the dream of a political career, Harry would want to stay away from the spotlight. Two opposite visions of life that would have emerged precisely during the organization of the celebrations for Lilibet Diana’s second birthday. According to the British press, Markle wanted to organize a party full of stars and famous faces from Hollywood in the family’s villa in Montecito. Her husband, on the other hand, had in mind a simple cake with the family. Who of the two spouses won is not known, at least for now. But according to gossip, the bickering over the celebrations further accentuated the distance between the two.
