Usually, royal babies are introduced to the public early on in their lives, but Lilibet, who was born in June, hasn’t been seen at all. Prioritizing privacy was one of the reasons parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry cited as their reasons for leaving the royal family, and they are sticking to their guns, sources tell The Daily Beast.
Even Archie hasn’t been photographed in months, they note. Royal expert Christopher Anderson told the pub: “As the littlest Sussexes get older they face the inevitable hounding by an intrusive paparazzi—photographers jumping out from behind bushes and parked cars and all that. I’m sure Harry especially wants to shield them from that trauma as long as humanly possible, so that his children can have something akin to the proverbial ‘normal’ childhood.”
Giles Harrison, a paparazzo, told the Daily Beast that people are staying away from them on purpose: “If you get the pictures of them, they are gonna try and sue you no matter what happens, no matter where you were. And they can afford to sue you a lot more than you can afford to defend yourself.”
