Meghan Markle and Prince Harry criticized for bringing Lilibet during the Queen’s Jubilee | royal | News

Royal biographer Angela Levin has criticized Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to take their two young children, Archie and Lilibet, with them to the Platinum Jubilee in early June. Speaking to GB News, Ms Levin said the family of four chose the “wrong time” to introduce Lilibet to her namesake and great-grandmother, the Queen. GB News morning presenter Stephen Dixon suggested the children’s arrival could be a “good icebreaker” between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family.

Harry and Meghan announced on Friday that they planned to travel to the UK next month to attend Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The couple also plan to bring their children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 10 months, according to a spokeswoman for the Sussexes.

However, Mrs Levin suggested that the couple should have chosen a better time to introduce Lilibet to the Queen for the first time.

She responded to the ad on GB News: “I think it’s wrong for them to bring their young children at the moment.

“The Queen is going to be in high demand. She has a lot to do over the weekend.”

The royal biographer continued: “It will be difficult for her because she doesn’t have the energy or the mobility.

“Having small children, who don’t know her, coming over for tea is another burden on her.

“They could have come anytime before now, and they could have come quietly and nicely, and that would have been a very special and intimate family event.

“But with so much going on during the Jubilee, it’s just the wrong time. From my point of view, it’s another opportunity to make more money from Netflix.”

Archie, who celebrated his third birthday on Friday, has not been back to his native country since the family moved to California in 2020.

Lilibet has yet to meet any member of the royal family since she was born in the US.

Despite the family’s decision to attend, the Queen has banned Harry and Meghan from appearing on the Buckingham Palace balcony for Trooping the Colour.

Instead, the Queen will be joined by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Prince William, and his wife, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and their three children, according to the palace.
