The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has revealed today , June 11, that she has not yet met with her new born niece Lilibet who was given birth to one week ago.
She broke her silence on Meghan and Harry’s new arrival during a royal outing on Friday.
Kate who made the comments while visiting a school in Cornwall during the G7 summit when she was asked about the new addition to the Royal Family said that she wishes her new niece Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, all the best and hopes to meet her soon.
The Duchess of Cambridge who appeared alongside US First Lady Jill said: “I wish her all the very best, I can’t wait to meet her because we haven’t met her yet, so hopefully that will be soon.”
This came after Prince Harry hit back at a Palace source which claimed that he did not seek the consent of his grandmother (the Queen of England) before naming their daughter Lilibet.
Recall that some days after the birth of their daughter, Harry claimed that had spoken to his grandmother prior to naming their daughter and told her of plans to name her Lilibet- the childhood nickname of Queen Elizabeth II.
However, a Palace source told the BBC this was not the case – and the Queen was “never asked” about its use. The source added that he and Meghan “never asked” Her Majesty about using her childhood nickname.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s official spokesman in reply to the Palace source said: “The Duke spoke with his family in advance of the announcement; in fact his grandmother was the first family member he called.
“During that conversation, he shared their hope of naming their daughter Lilibet in her honor.
“Had she not been supportive, they would not have used the name,” the spokesman added.
