Despite tensions, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be desperate to arrange a visit to the UK in the coming months, so that the Queen can finally meet her namesake great-grandchild, Lilibet.
Even though Harry and Meghan’s homecoming has “shocked” Buckingham Palace staff, the Duchess of Cambridge is said to be jumping for joy over the family reunion. In particular, Kate is thrilled she’ll finally get to meet her niece in person, after reportedly only being introduced to her via FaceTime following her birth on June 4.
“Kate has not given up on her mission to reunite Harry and William, even as the hurdles get higher,” tells a source. “The duchess is the only one who has been able to get Harry on the phone – he’s not taking anyone else’s calls.”
Kate, 39, is already a doting aunt to her sister Pippa’s two children, Arthur and Grace, and would love to have a similar presence in the lives of Lilibet and her older brother, Archie, 2.
