Kate Middleton “can’t wait” to meet the newest member of the royal family, niece Lilibet “Lili” Diana.
While visiting a UK primary school on Friday with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, was asked about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby girl, who arrived last Friday.
“I wish her all the very best. I can’t wait to meet her,” Middleton responded. “We haven’t met her yet, so hopefully that will be soon.”
On Sunday, Harry and Markle — who are currently residing in a $14 million Montecito, Calif., mansion post-Megxit — announced the birth of their second child.

Middleton and husband Prince William were among the first members of the royal family to congratulate the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the newest addition to their family amid rocky relations within “the Firm.”
Harry, 36, and Markle, 39, split from the royal family in early 2020. In March of this year, the couple, who also share 2-year-old son Archie, aired their grievances about royal life in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Outside of St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, Harry was spotted speaking amiably to William with Middleton nearby. The Duchess of Cambridge, who shares three children with William, was reported to have played “peacemaker” between the feuding brothers at Philip’s funeral.
Markle, for her part, remained stateside as she was far along in her pregnancy when the service took place.Filed under celebrity babies , kate middleton , lilibet diana mountbatten-windsor , meghan markle , prince harry , prince william , royal family , 6/11/21

Antiques Roadshow guest shuts down expert who tried to buy her plate telling her it’s ‘not for sale’
AN EXPERT on Antiques Roadshow was left stunned when a guest insisted her painted plate was "not for sale" despite its valuation.
The woman had brought the plate, gifted to her grandfather, to the V&A in Dundee, where she met with the artists great grand daughter Theo Burrell.4The woman brought in a plate which once belonged to Sir William Burrell
Holding onto the decorated plate, which featured an intricate design of Japanese-style landscapes, she began to explain where it came from.
"I've come all the way from Edinburgh just to see if you can tell me anything about this," the old woman began, clutching the plate.
"Well this is a very nice, and large, Chinese porcelain basin, and its decorated in traditional Amari colours - the iron red, cobalt blue and the highlights," Theo then explained.
"It's going to be 18th century in date, and you've got some nice areas of sort of some little inclusions to the glaze, which often happens with ceramics."4The plate featured an intricate Chinese design
Having asked how the woman came to own it, she explained it was gifted to her father for his work within his church.
"It was given to my father as a thank-you gift - he was a minister - and he had given some pastoral help to one of the families in the community," the guest said.
"They were really appreciative - and the woman was a sister of Sir William Burrell and at the time, she said it had come from the family collection.
"This was about 1943, which was before it was gifted to the city of Glasgow - and my father got it like this."4Theo joked she would want to buy the bowl for herself
Theo let out a chuffed "hah!" at the news, and revealed that her great grand-father's cousin was Sir William Burrel, who made the bowl.
"I'm very jealous that you have a piece from the private collection because we have absolutely nothing in our family," she went on to add.
"Obviously trying to authenticate that provenance is difficult, but you're right, that collection was gifted in 1944 to Glasgow, and he did collect all sorts of things.
"He did have a special interest in Chinese nation ceramics so it makes perfect sense to me that this may have been part of his private collection."4The plate was once part of the private collection Most read in TVFAMILY MATTERSLittle People's Molly Roloff makes rare appearance as she reunites with Zack'POOL DAY'Teen Mom Jenelle Evans wears snakeskin bikini with daughter Ensley, 4'TIME FLIES'Teen Mom Leah Messer's fans shocked by how 'grown up' daughter Addie, 8, looksREBEL JESSA?Jessa Duggar breaks parents' pregnancy rules & she's NOT giving birth at homesecret pastTeen Mom Ashley Jones was homeless and a stripper before joining MTV show‘EVERYONE GETS ALONG'Teen Mom Jenelle reveals Kaiser, 6, is spending summer with Nathan
They then went on to discuss what the piece could be valued at auction, with Theo giving it an estimate of between £1000 and £1500.
"If we can authenticate that provenance the price only goes up from there," she added. "And then, maybe I can take it off your hands?"
The woman then clutched the bowl closer and sharply said: "Um, maybe not. It's staying within the family."Antiques Roadshow guest who bought a £3 pot at a car boot sale staggered to learn it's worth £2,000
