Lilibet’s christening in UK would be ‘chance to draw a line under recent issues

 

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.

 

 

However, earlier this month sources were reported dismissing chances of the christening taking place in Harry’s homeland.

 

 

One palace insider told the Telegraph: “There will not be a christening in the UK. It is not happening.”

 

 

However, earlier this month sources were reported dismissing chances of the christening taking place in Harry’s homeland.

 

 

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”.

 

 

But a spokeswoman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said at the time plans for the christening were still being finalised and that claims to the contrary were “mere speculation”.

 

 

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.

 

 

And royal biographer Andrew Morton believes this move would be “highly appropriate”.Asked whether he deemed it possible for the christening to take place at Windsor, the author told Express.co.uk:

 

 

“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.

 

 

I think it would be highly appropriate for the christening to take place at Windsor Castle, where the Queen resides, with the Queen present and watching on.”

 

 

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.
