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

According to a royal biographer, LILIBET ‘Lili’ Diana’s christening in Windsor will allow Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and the Royal Family to “move forward.”

Meghan and Prince Harry’s only child was born on June 4 in a Santa Barbara hospital and is yet to be christened, according to reports. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly wanted to return to the UK in July to have Lili baptized at Windsor, just like her older brother Archie Harrison.

However, earlier this month, sources claimed that the christening would not take place in Harry’s homeland.

According to the Telegraph, a palace insider said: “In the United Kingdom, there will be no christening. It is not going to happen.”

According to the publication, a source said it was “highly unlikely.”

However, a spokeswoman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said at the time that the christening plans were still in the works and that any claims to the contrary were “mere speculation.”

This response did not rule out the possibility of the Sussexes traveling to the United Kingdom to hold the christening in the presence of the Queen.

Andrew Morton, a royal biographer, believes that such a move would be “highly appropriate.”

When asked if he thought the christening could take place at Windsor, the author told Express.co.uk: “Yes, of course, it would be fantastic; I’m sure it’s something they both desire because they both hold the Queen in high regard.

“I believe 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,” says the author ”

“This christening would be an opportunity to put the recent issues, criticism, and confrontation behind us and move forward,” he added.

Mr Morton, who famously collaborated with the late Princess of Wales on his 1992 book Diana: In Her Own Words, expressed his thoughts on the possible christening in Windsor just days before palace sources ruled it out.

Her Majesty has always spoken highly and affectionately about the Sussexes, according to the biographer, who also wrote Meghan: A Hollywood Princess.

He drew a comparison between Prince Harry and the monarch’s beloved sister, Princess Margaret, and said: “The Queen has always spoken publicly about Meghan and Harry, expressing her admiration for them and recognizing the difficulties they have faced.

“Because she could see in her own life that her sister Margaret struggled as the second in command.

“Harry has faced a variety of challenges, but he has had it particularly difficult as number two.”

Both Princess Margaret and Prince Harry, according to Mr Morton, struggled as “spares” in their family.

While their elder siblings had a clear path laid out in front of them, they had to forge their own path while adhering to the Firm’s hierarchy.

Archie, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s firstborn, was christened in Windsor two months after his birth.

The little Sussex was dressed in a white silk gown with an intricate lace overlay, as is royal tradition.

This gown, designed by the Queen’s dressmaker Angela Kelly in 2008, is a replica of the gown made for Queen Victoria’s daughter’s christening in 1841.

This Victorian gown was worn for the christening of 62 babies, including Prince Harry and the Queen, over the course of 163 years.

A number of royal children, including future king Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, have adopted its less fragile replica.

Lili would not be able to wear the gown or be surrounded by her royal relatives if her christening had to take place in the United States.

A trip across the pond for the ceremony, on the other hand, could be Lili’s first in-person meeting with her namesake.
