Prince Harry and Meghan’s hint that Lilibet has already been christened

Archie and Lilibet, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s young children, are being raised in California.

It has never been confirmed whether Archie’s younger sister has been baptized, despite the fact that he had a royal christening three months after his birth in 2019.

Tyler Perry, a close friend and Hollywood producer, seemed to imply that Harry and Meghan had already given their daughter the name Lilibet.

If Lilibet has been baptized, it’s unknown whether the ceremony occurred when the Sussexes visited the UK in June 2022 for the Platinum Jubilee or if they opted to have a baptism in Montecito, where they currently reside.

A replica of the original Spitalfields silk and Honiton lace christening gown made in 1841 for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter is customarily worn by royal infants. In total, 62 royal infants, including the late Queen Elizabeth II, wore it.

On July 6, 2019, Archie was christened in the private chapel at Windsor Castle. Guests included members of the royal family.

After the christening, Harry and Meghan shared a few official portraits, ensuring that the ceremony remained completely private.

Although three of them are reportedly said to be Harry’s friend Charlie van Straubenzee, his former nanny Tiggy Pettifer, and close family friend Mark Dyer, the Sussexes have not revealed who Archie’s godparents are.

Sienna, the daughter of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who was born in September 2021, was the most recent royal infant to be christened.

The infant was baptized in a discreet ceremony in April at the Chapel Royal, St. James’s Palace.
