Prince Harry and Meghan Markle know how to throw a party fit for a royal family, but when it comes to their daughter Lilibet’s birthday gifts, they have a different idea in mind. While King Charles III was eager to shower his daughter with lavish gifts, it seems Harry had other plans.
According to a consultant, Charles has his aides looking for traditional cubby houses, which are reminiscent of those Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret had as young girls. He wanted to give Lili something special, something she would love forever. It is the ultimate surprise.
However, Harry stepped in and reportedly warned his father to leave the remains. The Duke of Sussex prefers a more moderate approach to gifting. The source did not reveal what Charles ended up sending, leaving fans wondering about the surprise awaiting Lilibet.
Living in Montecito, California, with her famous parents and older brother Archie, Lilibet celebrated her second birthday in the U.S. The Sussex family said goodbye to their royal lives in 2020, moving forever across the pond.
Since their departure, tensions between Harry, Meghan and the royal family have been high. The couple has spoken about their feelings, criticizing “The Firm” and sharing their side of the story in interviews, a Netflix documentary, and an upcoming documentary.
Harry’s warning to his father was likely during their recent conversations leading up to Charles’ adoption ceremony, which coincidentally took place on Archie’s birthday. Despite their differences, it seems that Charles’ love for his grandchildren remains undying.
During a private lunch following the adoption ceremony, Charles reportedly honored Archie with a heartfelt tribute. Details of the tribute were not disclosed, leaving fans to imagine the touching gesture from the doting grandfather.
