The Queen is thought to have met baby Lilibet, despite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's security concerns.

  • According to a royal commentator, the monarch has met her great-granddaughther, who is named after her.
  • There has been heavy speculation as to whether the Queen has met Lilibet in person as since moving to California, Harry has only returned to the UK twice.
  • This follows royal news that Kate Middleton has had 'elocution lessons' to sound more regal.

PR expert and royal commentator Kinsey Schofield claims the Queen and Lilibet have already met - however this has only happened via video call.

She told “It is my understanding that the Queen and Lili have met each other over Zoom.”

The second youngest of the Queen's greatgrandchildren was born to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on 4 June in Santa Barbara, US, over 5,000 miles away from her royal relatives in Britain.

And it's thought they won't meet in person until unless a solution is found to Harry’s security concerns.

The Duke of Sussex has refused to return to London until the UK government provides him and his family with police protection. 

It was hoped that Meghan and Harry would bring the seven-month-old and her older brother, Archie, to see the royal matriarch last Christmas, but they were unable to make the overseas trip due to the rising Omicron rates and concerns over Her Majesty's health. 

It was subsequently reported that the couple would return for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee this summer, marking their first joint visit back to the UK since their high-profile withdrawal as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020. 

The public event, which coincides with Lili's first birthday in June, will celebrate the Head of State's seventy years reign on the throne. 

However, Prince Harry has claimed it is unsafe to return to London without Scotland Yard police protection and is now threatening to sue the Home Office over its refusal to guarantee the security. 

The department has also rejected the 37-year-old's offer to personally fund the service rather than expecting the British taxpayer to cover the costs.
