‘Get out of here! ‘British residents believe Harry and Meghan should not christen Lilibet at Windsor Castle.
BABY LILIBET will turn two months old on August 4, and many people are asking when and where she will be baptised. In a poll of 24,621 readers conducted between 5 p.m. July 29 and 9.30 a.m. August 3, this website asked readers if she should be christened at Windsor Castle like her brother Archie, and almost all of them said no. In a poll of 24,621 readers conducted between 5 p.m. July 29 and 9.30 a.m. August 3, the overwhelming majority of voters, 96 percent, said Meghan and Harry should not christen their daughter at Windsor Castle. Only 3% of electors thought Lilibet should be baptized at Windsor Castle, while 1% were undecided.
Many others in the comments section urged that Harry and Meghan “stay away” completely because they are “not welcome here.”
“This lovely rite should take place in the United States, where she [Lilibet] was born,” one reader suggested. Another added, “Why do they care whether they perform a celebrity baptism in California or a royal christening in Windsor?” I don’t see them making any extra efforts to expose their children to the Royal Family.” When asked if members of the Royal Family would welcome them back for the baptism, 43% responded no, while 39% indicated only a few members would.
Only 1% of respondents felt the entire family would be hospitable, while 17 percent thought several members would.
“I imagine some family members might arrive for a Christening,” reader JeanMary said.
“While Meghan and Harry may believe it is all about them, it is truly about the child and her connection with God,” says the author.
