Rumors have been circulating for several weeks. Where will be organized the baptism of Lilibet, the little girl of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who pointed the tip of her nose on June 4? It seems, according to the Daily Mail, that Diana’s son and his wife have decided the issue. According to a royal source, the couple, who have had very strained relations with the British royal family since their departure from the monarchy, would still consider organizing the ceremony in England, in the presence of Lilibet’s great-grandmother. , Queen Elizabeth II.
Prince Harry would have done by his intentions when he returned to his native country in early July, on the occasion of the unveiling of a statue in tribute to his mother, Princess Diana. “Harry has told several people that they want Lili baptized in Windsor, just like her brother,” a source told the newspaper. “They are happy to wait until circumstances permit.” The baptism of Prince Harry’s second child could therefore be an opportunity for Meghan Markle to return to England for the first time since the couple moved to the United States.
Was Queen Elizabeth II present at Lilibet’s baptism?
As a reminder, Archie, the eldest son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was baptized on July 6, 2019 in a chapel in Windsor Castle. The ceremony was held in a small committee, without the media, according to the wishes of Harry and Meghan Markle. For the occasion, the little boy was surrounded by his grandparents – Prince Charles, Camilla and Doria Ragland -, his uncle Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as Diana’s sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes . Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were not present. Officially, the reason given for this absence was a busy agenda with other more important commitments. But according to a royal source, “they just felt, at the time, publicly embarrassed about Meghan Markle’s overly controlling behavior.”
