Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are said to have made brazen attempts to arrange a summit with the Queen before their little daughter was baptized.
They want to introduce the 95-year-old monarch to her great-granddaughter Lilibet – on Meghan’s first return to the UK since the controversial couple gave up royal front roles in March 2020.
Harry has reportedly made possible reconciliation moves with his family as the couple wants to arrange a baptism for four-month-old Lilibet, possibly at Windsor Castle, the says Sun on sunday.
A request to meet just months after the couple beat up the royal family in a television interview with Oprah Winfrey stunned palace staff.

A source told the newspaper, “Harry and Meghan made this offer, but a lot of people are shocked at the sheer nerve. You might really want to see the Queen, but it’s breathtaking considering what she’s been through this year.
“Her Majesty’s staff have not yet responded. In fact, there was also discussion about Christmas – and whether an invitation should be sent to Harry and Meghan after they spurned one last year.
“The Queen still loves Harry dearly and would love to see Lilibet and her brother Archie. But the courtiers are surprised by the move, especially Meghan, after what happened.”
Harry and Meghan’s representatives did not respond, while Buckingham Palace refused to comment.
The Queen is currently spending her annual summer break north of the border at her property in Balmoral.
Yesterday she greeted Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie along with son Wilfred.
A source said, “You had some difficult issues to deal with, but it was all very comfortable.”
