King Charles’ sweet plan: He’s sending Lilibet the “ultimate surprise” on her 2nd birthday

King Charles has many grandchildren to share his love with. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis all live close by, though their cousins, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, are all much, much further away. Harry and Meghan’s children reside in California, meaning Charles hasn’t had much of an opportunity to spend quality time with them. 

Charles was crowned on May 6, the same day his grandchild Archie turned 4. Reports state that the new monarch made a toast to honor the boy, as neither Archie nor Lilibet were in attendance. Before long, Lilibet will turn two years of age, and unless there’s a dramatic change, it looks unlikely that Charles will be able to celebrate his granddaughter’s birthday in person either.
