Royal fans spot weird link between Meghan, Diana and Lilibet’s birthday

A string of bizarre coincidences linking Diana, Princess of Wales to Meghan Markle and Meghan’s daughter Lilibet Diana have been spotted by obsessed Royal fans. Lilibet Diana, Meghan and Prince Harry’s second child was named after her mother and grandmother.

Now podcasters have spotted an odd connection between Diana and Lilibet’s date and place of birth. Lilibet was born in a hospital in Southern California on June 4, 2021. The birth came 25 years to the day Diana visited Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois on June 4, 1996.

And the location is also a match since three years after Diana’s visit – an 18-year-old Meghan enrolled at the same university as a student, reports the Star.

Hosts of the Royally Obsessed podcast were among those stunned to find out, with commentator Roberta Fiorito saying: ’25 years to the day since Lili was born, Diana visited Northwestern, which we know to be the alma mother of Meghan. It just gets weird. It’s frightening.”

Co-host Rachel Bowie was also shocked by the striking coincidence and agreed the date alignment was “just weird”.

Diana’s trip in 1996 was primarily to raise funds for the university’s Robert H Lurie Cancer Center, considered one of the nation’s leading research centers. After the visit, the princess was occasionally spotted wearing a Northwestern sweater, which became part of her activewear.
