Following the royal schism, Queen Elizabeth is unlikely to meet Prince Harry’s daughter.

Senior royal aides told The Sun that Prince Harry gave Queen Elizabeth only 15 minutes’ notice before publicly announcing that he would be skipping his grandfather’s scheduled burial service.

Prince Harry said on Friday that he will not attend the March 29 memorial ceremonies for his grandfather, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died at the age of 99 on April 9, 2021.

The prince, who has pushed for protection for his family during any visit to the UK, said they would forgo the memorial because of safety concerns.

“The Duke [of Sussex] will not be returning to the UK until late March, but he hopes to see his grandmother as soon as possible,” the statement stated. The royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and their two children live in California.

Lilibet, Meghan and Harry’s second child, was born on June 4, 2021. The Queen, 95, is unlikely to meet her great-granddaughter due to the prince’s aversion to travel abroad, according to reports.

“He has rejected the Duke of Edinburgh, but he is truly snubbing the Queen,” claimed Angela Levin, a biographer of Harry. “I’m sure he’ll use the same excuse to avoid the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.”

The 75th anniversary of Elizabeth’s rule will be celebrated with a four-day bank holiday in the UK June 2-5.

Levin claimed the snub is especially egregious when the Queen is still “grieving” the loss of her husband of nearly 75 years.
