Is the Queen going to meet Lili? Harry and Meghan are about to make a major parenting decision.
According to rumours, Queen Elizabeth II may get to meet her eleventh great-grandchild, Lilibet Diana, because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want their daughter to be baptized at Windsor Castle.
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, the Duchess of Sussex’s daughter, was born on June 4 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, weighing 7lb 11oz. She was named after both the Queen’s family moniker and Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, who died tragically in a car accident in 1997.
The Queen has yet to meet her great-grandchild in person because Harry and Meghan moved to California after stepping down from the Firm.
This could soon change, according to a source, as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want Lili to be baptised in the same church as Archie.
“Harry told several people that they want to have Lili baptised at Windsor, much like her brother,” the source told the Daily Mail.
The couple is glad to “until circumstances allow,” according to the source.
In 2019, the Archbishop of Canterbury christened Archie in St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
If the couple decides to return to the UK, it will be Meghan’s first visit since March 2020.
“It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a statement announcing the birth of their daughter.
“Lili was born on Friday, June 4th at 11:40 a.m. at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA, in the capable hands of the doctors and nurses.
“She weighed 7 pounds and 11 ounces. Both mother and infant are in good health and are adjusting to their new surroundings.
“Her Majesty the Queen’s family nickname is Lilibet, and Lili is called after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen.
“Diana was chosen as her middle name in honor of her late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.
“This is the couple’s second child; Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, their two-year-old son, is the couple’s first.
“As they enjoy this unique time as a family, the Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm thoughts and prayers.”
According to a royal butler, Queen Elizabeth II “embraced” and sought to protect Princess Margaret after her marriage to Lord Snowdon fell apart.
The younger sister of Her Majesty married a society photographer. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
