A second candle for 2023. This Saturday, June 4, Lilibet, the daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, celebrates her two years. For the occasion, his parents chose to celebrate the event at home with their loved ones in their mansion in Montecito, California. Among the notable absentees from this anniversary is his grandfather, King Charles III, who resides on the other side of the Atlantic. But as revealed Monday, May 29 the Australian tabloid New Idea, the latter does not forget his beloved granddaughter on this special day and would offer him a gift worthy of a real princess.

A nostalgic gift
"Charles asked his assistants to inquire about a custom-made dollhouse, similar to the one that the Queen (Elizabeth II) and Princess Margaret had when they were little girls," reveals a source close to our Australian colleagues. "He wants to give Lili something she will use and belong to him. She will remember it for the rest of her life – it will be the ultimate surprise."

However, the witness reports that Prince Harry would not be of the same opinion as his father and would have asked him something "less extravagant". "He talked about adding British books to the nursery that he loved when he was little, like the Paddington bear series or Frog and Toad," the source said.
Meghan Markle, for her part, would not be against a gift a little more luxurious. "(She) fell in love with Cartier's absolutely divine music boxes," says the anonymous relative.
On the entertainment side, weather permitting, the Sussexes hope to organize a barbecue in their garden, according to the same witness. Lilibet being fascinated by animals, her parents would also have floated the idea of bringing a zoo of baby animals in her honor, the source assumes. An enchanted parenthesis therefore, to eclipse the recent rumors of divorce between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, peddled by the English press.
