“It was a fantastic visit. The prince was delighted to see his grandson and meet his granddaughter for the first time. The Prince and the Duchess [of Cornwall] were absolutely thrilled to see them. It was very special to have some time with him. He hadn't met Lilibet, his granddaughter, and so to meet her for the first time was very emotional — it was a wonderful thing,” the source said.

“Prince Charles is incredibly sad about everything that’s gone on. So, the family will want to meet each other,” he said.

At the time, Bullen also said that the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee would be the perfect opportunity for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to introduce their daughter to her grandfather.

“The Jubilee is a perfect opportunity for that because if Harry and Megan do come back because they have to be seen supporting Queen Elizabeth II. And everyone’s going to have to play nicely and behave well because it’s the Queen’s moment,” he said.

“The Prince of Wales has been saddened that he hasn't had the opportunity to spend time with his grandchildren, which he really does miss. He is a fantastic grandfather and loves playing the role immensely and it's certainly fair to say he feels there is something missing from his life without the ability to get to know Harry's children. This is something he is hoping to remedy which is why he made the gesture for Harry, Meghan, and the children to stay with him if they wanted to, whenever they may come home for a period of time,” the source said (via Good To Know).

Meanwhile, Prince Charles was unable to attend Lilibet’s first birthday party at Frogmore Cottage because of his prior engagements. But The Sun claimed that Queen Elizabeth’s successor surprised his granddaughter with a swing set, which was similar to what he gave Prince George in 2012.

According to reports, Princess Eugenie also had a similar swing set that has her name engraved on it.
