Meghan and Harry could announce Lilibet’s christening ‘already happened’


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have endured a difficult relationship with the Royal Family since the couple quit the Firm last year and moved to California.



The rift between the Sussexes and the rest of the royals widened after Harry and Meghan’s two-hour tell-all CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey in March this year.



The pair were deeply critical of Palace life while Meghan claimed her mental health had not been supported by the Firm, and that a senior royal had raised “concerns” about how dark their baby’s skin might be when he is born.



However, amid the family tension, Meghan gave birth to Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, the couple’s second child, on June 4.



Some expect the Duke and Duchess to travel to the UK to christen their daughter in Windsor Castle, as they did with Archie in 2019.



However the couple’s spokesperson said last week that decisions regarding Lilibet’s christening were still being made and that any claims being made were “mere speculation”.



One royal expert claimed in a podcast that Meghan and Harry may at some point announce that their daughter’s christening has “already happened” in California and that details will be kept under wraps.



Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Zoe Forsey and features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.



Mr Myers said: “Who knows when they will be making their next trip here? Will it be the christening? Will it be for Christmas?“I don’t think it will be this year. Again, anything could happen.



“The word from their people is they haven’t decided [on the christening plans].“I don’t know if I necessarily take that at face value.



“I think they will probably drop an announcement that it’s already happened and that will be all you know about it.”



Harry has returned to the UK twice since he quit the Firm ‒ for Prince Philip’s funeral on April 17 and two months later to unveil a statue of his late mother Princess Diana.
