Kate said today she can’t wait to meet baby Lilibet

She said: “I wish her all the very best, I can’t wait to meet her.”

Kate added: “We haven’t met her yet but hopefully that will be soon”.

Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born at 11.40am at a Santa Barbara hospital on Friday.

Kate and William both expressed their “delight” at the happy news after it was announced on Sunday.

But it comes amid royal tensions – with the family barely seeing Harry and Meghan’s first child Archie since he was born in May 2019.

Sources have also said Palace officials were left out of the loop after Lili’s birth – and only found out at 5pm along with the rest of the world.

A sensational war of words also erupted between Harry and Meghan, the Palace and the BBC this week over her name.

The row was started when a Palace source told the BBC the Sussexes “never asked” Her Majesty about using her childhood nickname.

Harry then hit back just 90 minutes later saying his grandmother was “supportive” of his choice of name and the couple wouldn’t have used it if this wasn’t the case.

The battle has now intensified after Harry and Meghan threatened the BBC with legal action through law firm Schillings.

The threat came just hours after he attempted to clear the drama up in a statement issued through spokesperson Omid Scobie.

Kate’s comment came as she met Jill Biden – a pal of Harry and Meghan’s – at a school in Cornwall today.

The Duchess of Cambridge and the First Lady, 70, both matched in striking pink outfits as they met for the first time.

Kate’s meeting with Dr Biden will be the third time she has met with a US president and his wife.

In 2011 and 2016 she twice met Barack and Michelle Obama.
