What baptism for Lilibet Diana? In July 2019, two months after his birth at Portland Hospital in London, his older brother was treated to a ceremony with great pomp alongside his parents but also other members of the royal family. On the side of the daughter of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the story gets complicated. Born in the United States in June 2021, the child has never yet come to England with her parents. They, and in particular the Duke of Sussex, would have liked a baptism in the United Kingdom, in the presence of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. Unfortunately for them, it was Prince William who had the last word according to recent information from the British newspaper The Express.

Indeed, Neil Sean said that it is unlikely that Lilibet Diana is entitled to have her baptism take place across the Channel, and more particularly in Saint George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. There where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married. The reason for this refusal? A counselor close to the Crown whispered in the Duke of Cambridge’s ear. “Some people may say that they are just capitalizing on their royal connection,” said Neil Sean, royal correspondent for the American channel NBC. And to add, cynically: “This is how they earn their money now.” A hypothesis which only comforted Prince William, reluctant to make peace with his younger brother. “[He] was the one who basically said, ‘no, we don’t think this is going to work, that’s not a very good idea’.” Kensington Palace, according to our colleagues across the Channel, has refrained from comment. One more reason to go to war?

A secret baptism for Lilibet Diana?

Because, it is no longer a secret, although the members of the Firm prefer to cultivate the mystery around their bickering, Prince Harry and Prince William are anything but on good terms. Tensions have only grown, especially following the explosive interview of the Sussexes with Oprah Winfrey. Anyway, this new setback will force the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to organize differently. Their adaptability is however well known and they are determined to do as they see fit. Thus, they could organize a secret bateme for Lilibet. However, it is uncertain whether Her Majesty Elizabeth II will be able to attend, much to the dismay of her grandson. Let us remember all the same that she did not attend Archie’s baptism either, nor that of little Louis of Cambridge.
