We didn’t get to see much of the Sussexes when they returned to the UK last month. But we’re hearing they were able to spend some quality time with members of the royal family, away from prying eyes.

Principe Harry, wife Meghan and their two young children were only in town for a few days, but a senior royal source said it waswonderful to have them back in Britain.
The family flew over from their home in California for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which marked her historic 70-year reign. Prince Charles and Camilla wereabsolutely thrilledto see them, according to the royal source.
    Harry and Meghan, you’ll undoubtedly remember, stepped back from official royal duties in January 2020.
      The duke subsequently revealed his bond with his father, Charles, and brother, Guillermo, had suffered since the somewhat acrimonious split. He told Oprah Winfrey in an interview last year that, en un punto, the heir to the British throne had stopped taking his phone calls entirely.
        But as the old saying goes, time heals all wounds, and it sounds like the relationship could be on the mend.
        He hadn’t met Lilibet, his granddaughter, and so to meet her for the first time was very emotional, a very wonderful thing,” la fuente dijo.
          The royal source also told us it was a “muy, very specialreunion for Charles and his grandson Archie.
          The children didn’t make an appearance during the Queen’s celebratory festivities. Harry and Meghan, sin embargo, made their first joint appearance at a royal event in two years when they attended a thanksgiving service for the monarch on June 3 in the hallowed surroundings of St Paul’s Cathedral. They were also spotted watching the Queen’s annual birthday parade the day before.
          Lilibet — whose name is a tribute to the Queen, as it was the monarch’s own childhood nicknamecelebrated her first birthday during the family trip to the UK. To mark the occasion, her fiercely protective parents chose to release the first solo photograph of their daughter and said they wereincredibly touched by the countless birthday wishes.She was previously seen in the family’s Christmas card last December.
          While the visit was the first chance for Charles to meet his granddaughter, it may have also been the first opportunity for the Queen to meet her namesake great-granddaughter.
