Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Prince William, and Kate Middleton are unlikely to attend baby Lili’s christening in the U.S.
Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royals haven’t met Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter yet. However, they won’t be attending her christening if it would not be held in the U.K.
There are various speculations about baby Lili’s christening. There were speculations that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would love to have the christening in the U.K. However, new reports claimed it would be unlikely to happen.
An anonymous insider told The Telegraph that there would be no christening in the U.K. That would mean that the ceremony will happen in the U.S.
Reports have it that the Sussexes will have the baptism at the Episcopal Church of the US.
According to royal biographer Ingrid Seward, it would be unlikely for Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince William, and Kate Middleton would attend if baby Lili’s baptism is in the U.S. due to scheduling issues.
“I don’t think any members of the immediate Royal Family would have time [to fly over]. Their schedules are organized six months in advance,” Seward told The Sun.
When asked if Prince Harry’s pal would fly to the U.S. for the event, the royal expert said, “maybe.” However, she also added that she would be “surprised” if the Sussexes chose to remain in the States for christening.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not christened their youngest child yet. Initially, there were speculations that they would fly to Britain for the event, so the royal family could attend.
However, another unnamed insider told NBC royal correspondent Sean Neal that Prince William blocked baby Lili’s U.K. christening. The Duke of Cambridge reportedly wasn’t willing to kiss and make up with his younger brother.
Neal said he had a “very good source” and the insider told him that Prince William strongly disagreed about having baby Lili’s christening in Britain. The second in line to the throne allegedly said it wasn’t a good idea and it won’t work.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their daughter on June 4. The Sussexes haven’t released an official photo of her yet. The royal family hasn’t met her yet, too.
However, the netizens got a glimpse of her on Meghan’s 40th birthday video. Eagle-eyed fans noticed a picture frame of Prince Harry kissing their baby girl.
