Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's daughter Lilibet has been snubbed by the Royal Family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's daughter turned two on June 4 but did not receive any public tributes from senior members of the monarchy to mark the occasion.


It comes as Prince Harry is set to appear in the High Court this week as his legal battle against MGN continues.

The Duke will be the first member of the Royal Family to appear in court since 1891.

At the end of the 19th century the heir to the throne Prince Edward was called to give evidence during the Royal Baccarat Scandal.

Harry's statements during the phone hacking case are expected to mention other members of the monarchy.

This could add new fuel to the ongoing feud between the Sussexes and senior royals.

Earlier this year, Prince Harry's lawyers claimed that Prince William settled for a "very large sum" in a deal struck between Buckingham Palace and Rupert Murdoch's firm during a separate case the Duke is pursuing against News Group Newspapers (NGN).

The Duke's lawyers have said that William settled a phone-hacking claim in 2020.

NGN is seeking to have Prince Harry's claim dismissed, arguing he should have brought it sooner.

Lilibet's snub comes as no members of the Royal Family publicly wished her brother Archie happy birthday on May 6.

The young prince's birthday was on the same day as King Charles's Coronation.

But the King reportedly held a toast for Prince Archie on May 6 following the historic ceremony.

Whilst senior members of the Royal Family headed to Buckingham Palace to watch the flypast, the Duke of Sussex darted to Heathrow Airport to catch his flight home.

Harry spent a total of 28 hours and 42 minutes in the United Kingdom during his brief trip to witness his father being crowned as King, according to the Daily Mail.
