Earlier this month, during the Platinum Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth finally had the chance to meet Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter, Lilibet (who just so happens to have been named after her great-grandmother). mother).
While there are, tragically, no photos from the reunion (at least not for the eyes of people who aren’t part of the royal family’s most trusted inner circle, anyway), some tiny bits of information about the iconic moment have leaked via royal media. One fact that seems to be fairly universally accepted as truth about the Great Lilibet Reunion is that it was quite short, time-wise (less than an hour, it seems).
Considering how long the Queen had to wait to meet little Lili (almost exactly a year after she was born) and how far apart the Sussex family lives from the rest of the Royal Family these days, the brevity of the meeting session intergenerational has surprised some royal fans/ignited flames of anxiety that Harry’s relationship with the Queen is in a bad place. According to royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti, however, this is not 100% the case (which, emphatic phew).
“She was working really hard to maintain her strength,” Sacerdoti said. We Weekly. “I think it’s completely understandable that she saved her energy as best she could for all the events she wanted to attend if possible.”
This totally tracks, of course, given that the Queen has had to skip several public appearances recently, including many events during Jubilee itself.
“We’re talking about someone in their 90s and a baby,” Sacerdoti added, presumably to drive home the very obvious, common-sense reason why the reunion was kept on the shorter side.
Considering how many people in the so-called first years of life need a nap after an hour of high pressure socializing with someone new (*raises hand and looks around*), Lilibets’ one-hour suspension session seems very, very fair.
