Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter, Princess Lilibet, celebrated her second birthday on Sunday, June 4. However, the royal family did not send their wishes to him publicly.
It’s an oversight or a lack that won’t help things between them. This Sunday, June 4, the youngest of the grandchildren of King Charles III, Princess Lilibetthe daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, was celebrating a special day: her birthday. The little girl was celebrating her 2nd birthday. Many media reported that the child was surrounded by her parents, her brother, Prince Archie, and her grandmother Doria for the occasion and that they had organized a warm moment in the United States.
Many observers have noticed that no one from the royal family had bothered to post a note to wish a happy birthday to the youngest of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. While Prince Harry briefly reunited with his family for the King’s coronation in early May, his relationship is strained with herespecially with his brother, Prince William, since the publication of his Memoirs, The Alternateand the Netflix series he developed with his wife.

Lilibet had celebrated its first anniversary in England
In one year, their relationship has soured further. If last year, Princess Lilibet had celebrated her first birthday in England – surrounded by her cousins Mia, Lena and Lucas Tindall, as well as Savannah and Isla Phillips, but without the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton –, since all the family had come to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, Elizabeth II, the tone has since changed. As proof, in 2022, the King and his eldest son had sent their wishes to Lilibet on Twitter. Prince Harry recounted the meeting of the little girl and her big brother Archie with their illustrious great-grandmother in his autobiography: “She expected them to be a bit more…American, I think? Which is to say, in her mind, more rambunctious.” But since then the Queen has died and new, stronger tensions have arisen. So, did Charles III and William simply want to celebrate the child in private or is this oversight a sign that relations are icy between the two families? The future will tell.
