  • Meghan Markle said her daughter was "beautiful" when asked about baby Lili
  • Markle was asked for an update on baby Lili during her visit to One World Trade Center last week
  • Prince Harry and Markle were in New York City last week for the Global Citizen Live festival

Meghan Markle gave a brief but sweet update on her daughter, baby Lili, during her and Prince Harry's trip to New York City.

Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew to the Big Apple to join the Global Citizen Live festival. They made several engagements prior to the event.

The royal couple visited One World Trade Center and someone asked Markle, "Meghan, how's Lilibet?" while they were there. The duchess gave a short but sweet response to the inquiry.

"She's beautiful," Markle was quoted by Cosmopolitan as saying.

Prince Harry and Markle welcomed their daughter on June 4. However, they have not released an official portrait of their second child yet.

When the duchess released a video for her 40th birthday, a snap of the 3-month-old baby girl briefly appeared in the clip, giving fans a glimpse of Lilibet. The video showed one large photo of Prince Harry and Markle's firstborn, Archie, 2. In front of it were the three framed, smaller black-and-white pictures. In the middle was a photo of Prince Harry gently kissing baby Lili. Another picture featured the duchess snuggling up to Archie. The last snap was a family picture.

The royal family hasn't met baby Lili yet. According to royal expert and founder of "True Royal TV" Nick Bullen, Prince Charles wants to meet Prince Harry and Markle's daughter.

"I think Prince Charles really wants to meet his granddaughter," Bullen told Us Weekly. "Prince Charles is incredibly sad about everything that’s gone on. So the family will want to meet each other."

It remains unknown when the royal family will ever see baby Lili. There were rumors that Prince Harry and Markle might take their kids to the U.K. for her Christening, or they might spend the holidays there. However, royal commentator Robert Jobson, author of "Prince Philip's Century: The Extraordinary Life of the Duke of Edinburgh," doubted that Markle will ever return to Britain.

"I’m not sure Meghan will ever come to Britain again," Jobson told Us Weekly adding, "She's not popular [right] now."

Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrating her Platinum Jubilee next year to commemorate her seven decades of service to the Commonwealth. Jobson said Prince Harry might show up there, but he was not sure of Markle's attendance.

"We have to wait and see. … Harry, I’m sure he thinks he’ll be there for the [Platinum Jubilee]," he said.

Prince Harry has already returned to his home country twice after Megxit sans his wife. The Duke of Sussex flew in April for Prince Philip's funeral. He returned in late June to attend the unveiling of Princess Diana's statue on what would have been her 60th birthday on July 1. Markle wasn't able to join her husband because she was pregnant with baby Lili at the time.
