Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘WON’T christen daughter Lilibet in UK’, says a royal source.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will not bring their daughter Lilibet to be christened in the Church of England, according to royal sources. It was previously understood that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would opt to bring Lilibet to the UK to be christened in front of the Queen at Windsor Castle— her majesty has not yet met the newborn . Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born in Santa Barbara, California, on June 4 2021.
Sources now believe that the couple will, instead, christen their duaghter at the Episcopal Church of the United States, therby staying much closer to home- the US church is a member church of the Anglican Communion and is run by Bishop Michael Curry.
Harry and Meghan’s son Archie was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, in July, 2019.
Meghan made sure the christening was a “completely private affair” attended by just 22 guests, according to the couple’s unauthorised biography Finding Freedom. Harry and Meghan refused to name their son’s godparents after he was christened while they were still senior and full-time royals. Details of royal babies’ godparents had always been made public previously.
The Queen did not attend Archie’s 2019 ceremony due to prior commitments.
