Where will Lilibet Diana be baptized? This is the question that remains as the religious celebration should initially have taken place in the United Kingdom. Only, as Elle reports, because of health restrictions and very tense relations between Prince Harry and the rest of his family, the parents of the little girl would have decided to do the baptism in the United States. Only Queen Elizabeth II would really like this moment to take place in her country. This is also what the Bishop of Liverpool, Paul Bayes, confided. The latter assured that the monarch would be very happy if Lilibet was baptized in Royame-Un, as is the royal tradition.
“The girl, now five months old, could benefit from an intimate and private ceremony, as was the case for her brother Archie”, further explain our colleagues from Elle. The choice is in the hands of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. They will have to choose between a royal baptism in the United Kingdom, with the royal family, or a baptism in the United States, with their closest friends. For the moment, no decision has been taken.
Lilibet’s baptism could take place in the United States in the royal family
Archie’s five-year-old little sister has yet to be introduced to the British royal family. If Queen Elizabeth really wants to meet her, for her part, Prince William would have clearly refused to have the baptism celebrated at St George’s Chapel in Windsor. A refusal which could therefore tip the choice of the parents of the little girl to stay in the United States for this religious event. Tensions are therefore still very present in this torn family.
