Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are traveling to the U.K. this week with their two children — Archie and Lilibet — for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
As the royal family comes together to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee this week, there’s another big cause for celebration: Lilibet’s first birthday!
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are traveling to the U.K. this week with their two children — Archie and Lilibet — to take part in the special four-day weekend in honor of the Queen’s record-breaking 70 years on the throne.
The trip marks the first time Lili, who was born in California, has visited her dad’s homeland. (Archie, 3, was born in the U.K.) It will also be the first time she will meet her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. The meeting will be especially poignant as Lili is named for the monarch, whose childhood nickname was Lilibet.
Lili will also be celebrating her own milestone when she turns 1 on Saturday. The Sussexes are likely staying at their U.K. home, Frogmore Cottage, which is just a half a mile from the Queen’s home at Windsor Castle, making a visit with the monarch very convenient. And now that the Queen is reportedly no longer attending the Epsom Derby on Saturday, she would be available for a potential birthday meet-up with Lili.
