It’s been six months since Meghan Markle gave birth to her second child on 4 June 2021 and since that day, the couple has kept their daughter a complete secret. While they have full authority over who gets to see Lilibet Diana and when, royal fans have been aching to see what the baby looks like and many are wondering why they haven’t even seen a picture of her.
Mysterious Lilibet Diana
Several royal experts have their own ideas about why her parents have chosen to keep her out of the limelight, including Neil Sean.
According to this royal expert, the decision to keep their daughter’s face out of the media is a deliberate move. He believes that the couple is waiting for the prime moment in order to have ‘maximum impact’, reports Express.co.uk. Sean said that:
If they put a picture on social media, a lot of people would be excited to see the child, they are all interested, but as time goes by, the interest decreases.
It should be noted that one of the reasons why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left the royal family was to have some privacy. In fact, since they left the United Kingdom, they have not released many photos of their eldest son Archie either. So ultimately, their move may not be as calculated as some would like to think.
Split with the royal family
When Archie was born in 2019, being a part of the royal family meant that he was immediately thrown into the spotlight. But Lilibet Diana has not had the same experiences as her brother.
Even her birth certificate looks completely different to that of Archie, given that Meghan Markle has opted out of using any royal titles on the document. She has only listed her full name, Rachel Meghan Markle, while Prince Harry identified himself as the Duke of Sussex.
