If Lili is christened at Windsor, Meghan Markle has warned that it will be a “awkward” royal reunion.
If Lili is christened in the United Kingdom, Meghan Markle will have a “awkward” reunion with the Royal Family, according to a royal expert.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who have left the royal service and are now living in California, are planning to christen their daughter Lilibet Diana at Windsor Castle in front of the Queen. The Duchess of Sussex, however, isn’t the Royal Family’s “flavor of the month,” according to royal analyst Russell Myers.
“It will be very awkward,” Mr Myers told Today.
“With the family, Meghan isn’t the flavor of the month.
“They will undoubtedly be much-loved members of the family, as the family has always stated.
“However, Emmy nomination or no Emmy nomination, we’re still talking about the consequences of the Oprah Winfrey interview.
“Within the family, the tensions are still running very, very high.”
Mr Myers’ remarks follow rumours that Meghan and Harry intend to have Lili, who was born last month, christened at Windsor, like her brother Archie, who was baptized at the royal residence’s private chapel.
During his recent return to the UK, Harry is alleged to have informed the royals of his wish.
“Harry informed several people that they want Lili baptised at Windsor, much like her brother,” a royal source told the Daily Mail.
“They are content to wait until the situation permits.”
Some royal fans are likely to be surprised by reports that the Sussexes want Lili to be baptized in the United Kingdom.
In their explosive Oprah Winfrey interview, which aired in March and has been nominated for an Emmy Award, Harry and Meghan took aim at the Royal Family.
In the tell-all show, the pair made a number of bombshell charges against the royals, including accusations of racism.
In the weeks that followed, Harry made more contentious remarks about his family.
He also seemed to imply that the Queen, the late Prince Philip, and Prince Charles were all bad parents.
For the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace earlier this month, Harry went to the UK for the second time since Megxit.
Prior to the ceremony, much focus was on Harry and his brother, Prince William, who have been locked in a long-running spat.
The Duke of Sussex previously visited the United Kingdom in April for Prince Philip’s burial.
Harry is alleged to have received a “frosty” at the funeral, which took place just weeks after his and Meghan’s TV interview.
