Lilibet could be ‘Band-Aid baby’ who heals Duke’s Royal Family rift


Lilibet could be ‘Band-Aid baby’ who heals Duke’s Royal Family rift


Meghan and Harry’s decision to name their daughter Lilibet is a bandage for the royal split, according to an expert, and the child might “return the family to some form of normality”

The 7lb 11oz baby, whose middle name is Diana, was delivered in Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California on Friday evening, British time, at a private hospital where deliveries may cost up to £20,000.

Angela Levin, a royal author, feels that the birth of Lili, as well as the evident tribute to the Queen and Princess Diana, might bring the Royal Family closer together.

The christening of the infant, which is coming up soon, might be vital for the royals’ relations.

However, after giving a series of bombshell interviews on his “nightmare” lifestyle as a senior royal, the pundit, who penned a biography of Harry, thinks there is going to be a long way to go.

The arrival of the Queen’s 11th grandchild comes only days before Prince William and Harry are set to reconnect in public for the installation of their late mother Princess Diana’s statue at Kensington Palace to commemorate her 60th birthday.


“A new arrival into the Royal Family is perhaps the next best chance for all sides to come together, meaning Lilibet Diana could unwittingly be the human sticking plaster that patches up the rift,” Ms Levin wrote in an op-ed for the Daily Telegraph.

“When an innocent baby smiles, it’s hard not to smile back.

“But this may all depend on Harry seizing the opportunity to have his daughter christened in the UK.

“It could also provide the excuse Meghan needs to return to these shores, something that seems unlikely even with the unveiling of a Diana statue in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden on July 1.

“How significant it would be if a baby with the middle name Diana ushered in a new Royal era, one where both sides understood what the other needed and were united again.”

Despite the arrival of the tot, she added, relations between Harry and Meghan and the rest of the royals are at a “low ebb”

“Before she is even a month old, Lilibet could yet prove herself to be a ‘Band-Aid baby’ – a sticking plaster in Royal form to return the family to some form of normality after the turbulent year and a half since Megxit sparked several rounds of very public – and occasionally painful – soul-baring,” Ms Levin wrote in the Telegraph.

And Ms Levin believes the baby might relieve Harry’s “genetic pain”.

“His attitude to life could change,” she speculated.

“Perhaps despite his new life, I suspect he is unhappier than we think, and remains haunted by a catalogue of grievances.

It comes after the Duke of Sussex used recent interviews to launch a series of nuclear ‘truth bombs’ on the Royal Family.

Prince Harry accused them of ‘total silence’ and ‘neglect’ when Meghan was suicidal in his new five-part AppleTV+ docuseries with Oprah Winfrey, claiming his father Prince Charles made him ‘suffer’ as a child and insisting he would not be ‘bullied into silence’.

“It makes one wonder if the outpouring of the pain and frustration he has felt about his family and his brutal verbal attacks have been a way to cope with just how much he still misses his mother, and how much underneath it all he aches to get his family back,” Ms Levin said.

“If he doesn’t, surely he wouldn’t bother talking about them.”
