Look, we like to take shots at the newly crowned King Charles III here at Best Products from time to time, mostly for the alleged financial whoopsies. But credit where credit is due: Amid all the drama between Charles and his son Prince Harry, the new King is still making sure his youngest granddaughter has a special birthday.
Princess Lilibet of Sussex, the youngest child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, will be turning 2 years old on Sunday, June 4. Goodto, which reported on Charles’s forthcoming gift to Lilibet, notes that the young princess celebrated her 1st birthday in the UK around the time of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.
But Lilibet’s 2nd birthday, perhaps due to frosty relations between her parents and paternal grandparents, will be celebrated at home in Los Angeles. Nevertheless, King Charles is making sure his gift will be one that will be “remembered forever” and one that ensures a little bit of Queen Elizabeth is carried on with her great-granddaughter.
Reportedly, King Charles “has had his aides looking at a custom-made cubby house, similar to what the Queen and Princess Margaret had when they were girls.”
Queen Elizabeth received a cubby house (what we in the States might call a playhouse) when she was 6 years old. Called Y Bwthyn Bach (“The Little Cottage” in Welsh), the cottage was “a gift from the people of Wales” and stood on the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
It has since “been passed down to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis,” and while Lilibet does not reside in the UK to enjoy that particular ancestral cubby house, Charles is ensuring that she’ll have one of her very own to enjoy.
In the wake of Charles confirming he won’t strip the title from Harry, father of Lilibet, and that he’s reportedly set to “stop slamming the royals,” could this gift perhaps be a sign of relations being repaired between the once-raging factions of the royal split?
