Meghan and Harry's relationship with the rest of the royal family has become more strained since the couple resigned and left for the US. We tell you how the royal family reacted to the news of the birth of the baby.
The royal family commented on the news of an addition to the family of 36-year-old Prince Harry and 39-year-old Meghan Markle. On June 5, the couple had a daughter who was named Lilibeth Diana. Lilibeth is in honor of Queen Elizabeth, who was affectionately called Lilibeth as a child, and Diana is in honor of Harry's mother Princess Diana.
Congratulations from the royal family were not long in coming. Buckingham Palace was the first to respond to the news: вЂњThe Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are incredibly happy to learn of the birth of their daughter, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Prince William and Kate Middleton also congratulated Harry and Meghan on the birth of their daughter: вЂњWe are thrilled with the joyous news of Lily's birth. Congratulations to Harry, Meghan, and Archie.вЂќ
Harry's cousin Princess Eugenia did not remain indifferent either: вЂњCongratulations to you, my dear cousin. We are very happy and happy for you,вЂќ she wrote on Instagram.
Prince Charles, who Harry said blurted out his son from his life, also joined in the congratulations. вЂњCongratulations to Harry, Meghan, and Archie on the birth of Lilibeth Diana and we wish them all the best at this special time,вЂќ Charles and his wife Camilla said in their congratulations.
Recall that a year and a half ago the Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned and left England. Since then, their relationship with the royal family has noticeably deteriorated: no small part of this was played by several very frank interviews with the couple. It all started with a scandalous conversation with Oprah Winfrey, during which it became known about Markle's suicidal thoughts, harassment by Kate Middleton, and discussions about Archie's skin color. And on the вЂњCouch ExpertвЂќ podcast, Harry compared his former life to the movie вЂњThe Truman ShowвЂќ and said he felt like an animal living in a zoo cage.
According to rumors, Harry's older brother William considered it a betrayal and practically stopped communicating with him. But all is not lost: on July 1, the brothers will celebrate an important event for them: the birthday of Princess Diana, who would have turned 60 this year. William and Harry may also be brought closer together by the birth of Lily.
