Circulating reports suggested that Lilibet Diana, the latest addition to the Sussexes family, would follow in the footsteps of her two-year-old brother Archie with a UK-based christening ceremony. However one palace insider reportedly said a UK christening “is not happening”.
Instead it is more likely that Harry and Meghan’s four-month-old’s baptism will take place at the Episcopal Church of the US.
She told The Sun that if Lilibet – the second child for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who was born in June – was christened in the US, “maybe” Harry’s friends would fly out.
If the ceremony takes place in America, Lilibet will be the first of the Queen’s grandchildren or great-grandchildren not to receive a royal baptism within the church of England.
