• Meghan and Prince Harry had Lilibet in 2021
  • The baby is named after Queen Elizabeth II
  • Will she ever meet her namesake the Queen?

Will Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan ever return to the UK? For royal watchers, this question comes up often and there's never a firm answer.

The Sussex family has been away from England since early 2020. They also welcomed their daughter Lilibet Diana last June, and fans really want her to meet her namesake Queen Elizabeth. Will that ever happen?

Queen and Lilibet: Royal expert has a sad prediction

It seemed like Meghan and Harry were on the verge of visiting soon, but Prince Harry is now clashing with the British government over security concerns for his family.

The conflict is delaying Prince Harry's homecoming, and he confirmed this week he won't attend Prince Philip's memorial in London on March 29. That news, however, prompted a sad prediction from one royal expert.

Speaking to The Sun, commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said it is "unlikely" that Harry and Meghan's daughter will ever meet the Queen. "If they don't bring Lili over, then obviously that won't happen," Fitzwilliams stated.

"It's all something that's clearly not going to be resolved in the foreseeable future," he added, with reference to Harry's security problem with the government.

Also interesting:

It also seems to be implied that the Queen's recent health issues are a concern if Lilibet can't visit for years on end. However, Prince Harry did say he hopes to visit the Queen "soon" in his new message on Prince Philip's memorial.

Baby Lili is now 9 months old. She was born on June 4 and was named after her great-grandmother the Queen — whose family nickname is "Lilibet."
