Looks like Uncle William and Aunt Kate won’t be at their niece Lilibet’s birthday party this Saturday.

Prince William and Kate Middleton will be over a hundred miles away from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s celebrations for their daughter’s first birthday as they visit Wales as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, according to Daily Mail.

While there, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be meeting performers and crew involved in a special concert at Cardiff Castle.

Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth II — who is celebrating 70 years of ruling the United Kingdom — will reportedly be meeting her namesake great-granddaughter, at a birthday gathering at Frogmore Cottage, where Harry and Meghan are set to stay while in town.

The missed opportunity for some brotherly bonding between William, 39, and Harry, 37, comes amid rumors that the two brothers have been holding weekly zoom chats in an attempt to heal their fractious relationship.

Markle and Harry’s daughter turns 1 on June 4. This will be Lilibet’s first visit to the UK since her parents exited royal life in January 2020 and moved to California. Since their shocking announcement, the couple has only returned to the United Kingdom once for a fleeting visit in April on their way to the Invictus Games in The Hague, Netherlands.

Prince Harry had returned home without Markle in April 2021 to attend his grandfather, Prince Philip’s funeral. He also made a short trip home solo in July 2021 to help unveil a statue of his late mother, Princess Diana, at Kensington Palace in London.

The royal brothers, whose relationship has been fractured in recent years, joined forces to honor Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday.

Page Six exclusively reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their two kids Lilibet and Archie, 3, will not be seen much during the Jubilee celebrations but kept in the shadows over [the] four days of events. Sources also claimed that courtiers are worried Markle and Harry will steal the 96-year-old monarch’s thunder.

The Sussexes won’t be on the balcony at Buckingham Palace this Thursday to kick off the national celebrations during the Trooping the Colour ceremony. Those spots are reserved for working royals and their children, unlike Markle and Harry who resigned from their royal duties and have since signed deals with Netflix and Spotify.
