LILIBET ‘Lili’ Diana’s christening in Windsor would provide a chance to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and the Royal Family to “move forward”, according to a royal biographer.
The only daughter of Meghan and Prince Harry was born on June 4 at a Santa Barbara hospital and it is believed she has yet to be christened. In July, a source claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex desired to travel back to the UK to have Lili baptised at Windsor – just like her big brother Archie Harrison.
One palace insider told the Telegraph: “There will not be a christening in the UK. It is not happening.”
One palace insider told the Telegraph: “There will not be a christening in the UK. It is not happening.”And a source told the publication it was “highly unlikely”.
This answer still left the door open to a possible trip by the Sussexes to the UK to hold the christening at the presence of the Queen.
“Yes, of course, it would be great, I am sure it is something they would both want because they both have a lot of respect for the Queen.”That comes shining through in their interviews.
He added: “This christening would be a chance to draw a line under the recent issues, criticism and confrontation and to move forward.”
Mr Morton, who famously collaborated with the late Princess of Wales for his 1992 book Diana: In Her Own Words, voiced his views on the possible christening in Windsor a few days before palace sources deemed the ceremony at Windsor unlikely.
The biographer, who also wrote Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, went on noting how Her Majesty has always spoken highly and with affection about the Sussexes.
