Prince William still seems wary of spending time alone with his brother Harry.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked the Cambridges to join them at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor on Saturday to celebrate Lilibet’s first birthday.
But William, Kate and two of their three children – Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, attended the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Wales.
The Sussexes then left the UK without spending any time alone with William, Kate or their children, reports Page Six.
The brothers’ separation meant the youngsters were unable to spend face-to-face time with their cousins Archie, 3, and Lilibet.
The Sun on Sunday revealed the Sussexes were joined by younger royals, including children of Zara and Mike Tindall, for a garden party to celebrate daughter Lilibet’s first birthday.
It is also believed that a birthday party was organized in the hut with picnic snacks, cakes, balloons and board games.
Zara and Mike Tindall’s children – Mia, 8, Lena, 3, and one-year-old Lucas – are said to have taken part.
Other guests included Peter Phillips and ex-wife Autumn’s daughters Savannah, 11, and 10-year-old Isla.
Archie’s godfather Charlie Van Staubenzee and his brother Tom are said to have been at the party as well.
And The Sun understands the Queen, 96, had met Lilibet before she turned one.
The Cambridges acknowledged their niece’s birthday on Twitter, writing a sweet message with a balloon emoji.
It read, “Wishing Lilibet a Happy 1st Birthday!”
Harry and Meghan flew home quickly from the UK on Sunday after marking the Queen’s platinum anniversary with a hurricane visit.
It is understood that their decision to leave quickly was planned in advance.
The Sussexes attended two anniversary events and hosted relatives during the private party at their Windsor residence.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent an estimated £160,000 on the five-day trip, quietly bringing their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, in tow.
Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, flew to the UK on a private jet from Santa Barbara on Wednesday.
They, along with Archie and Lilibet, crowded into the back of a blacked-out VW pickup truck and were cautiously escorted by the Queen’s Land Rover and bodyguards.
The Sussexes had pledged to “stick to the script” and not plan any antics away from the platinum anniversary.
And that meant they were barely visible in public during the Queen’s four-day celebration.
Meghan and Harry were first seen in the Major General’s office at Trooping the Color on Thursday, playfully entertaining younger royals.
Friday’s Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral was the only time they were seen in public with their family, as they sat in the second row, 25 feet from William, Kate, Charles and Camilla.
