Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked for an audience with Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. It is assumed that the Dukes of Sussex wanted to introduce the queen to their daughter and her great-granddaughter, Princess Lilibet, writes The Sun, citing sources at the royal court.
It is noted that many are amazed by the request of the spouses to meet with Elizabeth II. The Dukes of Sussex could declare a sincere desire to see the Queen. However, this decision is surprising, considering “what the couple forced Elizabeth II to go through this year.” At the Queen’s court, a meeting with the Dukes of Sussex is considered possible, but “shocking”.
At the moment, the queen has not given official consent to the visit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the court. At the same time, it is known that she would like to see her great-granddaughter Lilibet. The possible date of the audience is also not yet called.
On June 4, 2021, Meghan Markle gave birth to a girl, whom the couple named after Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana. Lilibet “Lily” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California. Prince Harry was present at the birth. The girl became the eleventh great-granddaughter of Elizabeth II and the second child of the Dukes of Sussex: their son Archie was born in 2019.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle resigned as members of the British royal family on April 1, 2020. In order to move to the United States, work and engage in entrepreneurial activity, they renounced the address “Your Royal Highness”, state funding and the Sussex Royal trademark. By signing a contract with the video service Netflix, the couple achieved financial independence from the royal family.
