Queen Elizabeth II’s 93rd birthday is already being overshadowed by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first child even before the baby is born.
Nicholas Bieber, a journalist for Daily Star, said that Prince Harry and Markle’s baby will be born sometime in the spring of 2019. This means that the baby may share a birthday with Her Majesty. The Queen’s official birthday is on April 21, and a major celebration is typically held to commemorate the milestone.
The journalist noted that even if Markle’s baby won’t be born on April 21, the infant will arrive around the same time. This could only mean that there will be much talk surrounding the newest addition to the royal family, and this may overshadow the Queen’s birthday celebration.
But by the looks of it, the Queen won’t mind if all eyes will be on Prince Harry and Markle’s baby because she has always shared a close bond with the younger members of her family.
According to Good Housekeeping, the monarch, who is known as Gan-Gan to her grandchildren, is an inspiration to the younger members of the British clan. Prince William previously gushed over the Queen and said, “She works very hard and she sees her service as important but behind closed doors, she worries and minds an awful lot about the rest of the family. She makes sure everyone is happy and finding their own path in terms of success.”
Susan Constantine, a body language expert, analyzed the Queen’s precise body angles and facial expressions and said that they are proof that she’s very hands-on and attentive when it comes to her grandchildren.
Patti Wood, another boy language expert, talked about a video of the Queen walking and playing with her grandkids.
“Normally, we see the Queen in front and a few steps ahead of everyone else but here, she steps back and lets the kids lead the way,” she said.
