Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s daughter Princess Lilibet has celebrated her second birthday – but the Royal Family are yet to publicly send their best wishes.
King Charles’ youngest grandchild turned two on Sunday but messages from the monarch or any of the Duke of Sussex’s family did not appear on official websites or social media platforms throughout the day.
The snub is the latest sign that Lilibet and her older brother Prince Archie are increasingly being sidelined from the royal family after the entire Windsor clan declined to attend Lilibet’s christening earlier this year.
Prince Harry was briefly reunited with his family for the King’s Coronation but relations are said to be strained following the publication of the Duke’s bombshell memoir and Netflix series.
Last year, both King Charles – who was then the Prince of Wales – and Prince Harry’s brother Prince William and the official Twitter account for the royal family sent well wishes on Twitter to Lilibet as she celebrated her first birthday during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations for Queen Elizabeth II.
However, none of the royals appear to have done so this time around, including Princess Eugenie who is a close ally of Harry and Meghan Markle.
Last year, Lilibet’s first birthday fell during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
She travelled to the UK with her parents and brother where she met her grandfather King Charles III and great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II for the first time.
In Spare, Harry shared some heartwarming details of the sweet moment including how she latched onto the late monarch’s shins.
He said his grandmother described Archie and Lilibet as the ‘sweetest children’.
It’s believed Harry and Meghan were planning to celebrate Lilibet with her older brother Prince Archie and grandmother Doria.
Meghan gave birth to Lilibet on June 4, 2021 – and she was named after her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.
