If Meghan Markle’s daughter Lilibet is christened in Windsor, she may face a “awkward” reunion with the Royal Family, according to a royal expert.
According to royal insiders, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter Lilibet Diana may be christened in St George’s Chapel in Windsor with the Queen present, following in the footsteps of her older brother Archie.
However, royal expert Russell Myers has warned that it will be ‘definitely awkward’ because tensions within the family are still’very high.’
‘It will definitely be awkward,’ he said in an interview with Today. ‘Meghan isn’t the family’s flavor of the month. The family has always stated that they will be cherished members of the family.
‘However, Emmy nomination or no Emmy nomination, we’re still talking about the fallout of the Oprah Winfrey interview.’
‘The tensions within the family are still very, very high,’ says the narrator.
‘Harry told several people that they want Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother Archie,’ a source previously told the Daily Mail.
‘They are content to wait until the situation permits.’
The reunion would follow Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive two-hour CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, in which the royal made reference to his relationship with William amid reports the brothers had feuded following Megxit.
‘As I’ve said before, I adore William,’ Prince Harry told the talk show host. He’s my younger brother. ‘We’ve been through hell together,’ says the narrator. We have a common experience, after all. But we’re on separate tracks.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed during the interview that racism drove them out of Britain and that their son Archie was denied the title of prince because he is mixed race.
Prince Harry accused his father Prince Charles of refusing to take his calls when the couple moved to the United States last year, and Meghan claimed that Kate Middleton left her in tears during a row over bridesmaid dresses.
Russell Myers went on to say that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s desire to give Lilibet Diana a royal christening shows the royal couple’s desire to maintain their royal ties.
‘From the details, it appears that they want some consistency in their family life,’ he said.
‘Of course, before they jetted off to start their new life in the United States, their son Archie was christened at Windsor Castle.
‘However, when you think about it, what do Harry and Meghan have right now?’
‘They definitely want to maintain their royal connection, and this will be a sure-fire way to ensure that everyone is talking about them in a royal way,’ says the source.
