Following the news that she and Prince Harry had Princess Lilibet christened and started using royal titles for their two children, Meghan Markle was seen smiling as she left the house with a friend.
The Duchess stepped out with a friend looking stunning in a black coat, jumper, and pants, along with a white bag, a white pair of heels, and a pair of sunglasses.
As they strolled around in the Californian sunshine, the royal demonstrated how close she and her friend are by wrapping a protective arm around her.
The two, who were later joined by other friends, had lunch at the vegan restaurant Gracias Madre on Melrose Avenue on International Women’s Day. They were later seen leaving the establishment.
The outing takes place just hours after Meghan and Harry revealed that their daughter had been christened; the ceremony took place last Friday at their Montecito home.
“I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3 by the Bishop of Los Angeles, the Rev. John Taylor,” a spokesperson for the royal couple said.
It is understood that the couple will only refer to themselves in formal contexts as princess Lili and prince Archie, respectively.
Even though Harry and Meghan have stepped down from their roles as working royals, we have exclusively revealed that King Charles agreed that the Duke of Sussex’s children should use their royal titles at the end of 2022.
According to reports, Harry and Meghan are concerned about not taking away their children’s birthrights but rather giving them the choice to decide for themselves when they are older whether to stop using the titles or not.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children’s royal titles are now listed on the official royal family website.
The entries in the line of succession for Archie and Lilibet now read Prince Archie Harrison of Sussex and Princess Lilibet Diana of Sussex. The change was made on Thursday morning.
