> The Queen has made her first appearance since the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby daughter Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor

The Queen has made her first official appearance since the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s daughter, who arrived into the world on 4 June.

On Tuesday, her Majesty conducted two virtual Audiences via video link from Windsor Castle. She met with the ambassador from the Republic of South Sudan, Ms Agnes Oswaha, and with the High Commissioner for the Republic of Mozambique in London, Ms Albertina MacDonald.

For the engagements, the Queen wore a floral dress with her beautiful diamond and ruby butterfly brooch – that has been described as a “wedding gift” in the past.

It marks the first time her monarch has been seen since the arrival of her great-granddaughter, who was aptly named after her family nickname – Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

On Sunday, the Queen shared her joy in a statement, which read: “Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of Lilibet Diana!

Little Lili is the first of the Queen’s great-grandchildren to be born outside the UK, not to mention the first royal baby who has had the honour of sharing their first name with her Majesty. Her cousin, Princess Charlotte, has Elizabeth as the first of her middle names, however, with Diana as her second.
