AceShowbiz - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle don't make distance a reason for them to not be able to share the joy of welcoming their second child. Despite being thousands of miles apart, the couple has reportedly introduced their newborn daughter to Queen Elizabeth, who lives across the pond.
Not long after she was born on Friday, June 4, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor had a very important engagement to attend with her namesake, according to PEOPLE. The meeting reportedly happened via video call, as the proud parents "were very excited and couldn't wait to share that their daughter arrived" as soon as they returned from Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, where Meghan gave birth to their second child.
After a reported growing tension between Harry and his family due to his and Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, the arrival of their daughter may help reattach the bond between them. It is said that Harry and Meghan will likely bring their children to Sandringham to meet the rest of the royal family this Christmas holiday, if COVID-19 restrictions permitting.
The Sussexes will likely also return to the U.K. In June 2022 for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which will mark her historic 70 years on the throne. Before then, Harry, who is now taking a five-month paternity leave following the birth of his daughter, is expected to make a solo trip to London for the July 1 unveiling of the Kensington Palace statue in honor of his mother.
Harry previously revealed that his grandparents, including his grandfather Prince Philip who died in April, kept in touch with him and his growing family via Zoom calls. "They've seen Archie running around," he told "The Late Late Show" host James Corden back in February.
