Meghan Markle will attend Lilibet’s christening, which will be a “awkward” royal reunion.
LILIBET Diana’s christening could lead to a “awkward” reunion between Meghan Markle and the Royal Family, despite the Duchess of Sussex’s efforts to retain her family’s ties to royal life.
According to royal sources, Lilibet Diana could follow in her older brother Archie Harrison’s footsteps and be christened at St George’s Chapel in Windsor. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s youngest child was born in California, and the Royal Family would have the opportunity to meet her at her baptism. However, due of the comments she made during her interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, the Duchess of Sussex has been warned she will face an awkward welcome committee.
Russell Myers, royal editor of the Mirror, told Today, “It will be undoubtedly embarrassing.”
“With the family, Meghan isn’t the 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 consequences of the Oprah Winfrey interview.
“Within the family, the tensions are still running very, very high.”
Mr Myers also said that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s desire to give Lilibet Diana a royal christening was evidence of the couple’s desire to retain their royal ties.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have had limited face-to-face contact with the Royal Family in the past year, having relocated to California just before the global lockdown in March 2020.
Shortly before their departure, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry declared their intention to step down for a year to establish themselves financially, with more permanent arrangements to be arranged in 2021 after they confirmed they would not return their working royal status.
“Looking at the facts, it appears that they do want some continuity for their family life,” the royal expert continued.
Of course, before they sailed out to start their new life in America, their son Archie was christened at Windsor Castle.
“However, when you think about it, what do Harry and Meghan have right now?”
“They clearly want to maintain their royal ties, and this will be a sure-fire way to ensure that everyone is talking about them in a regal manner.”
Holding Lilibet Diana’s christening in the United Kingdom, according to royal historian Marlene Koenig, would demonstrate the Sussexes’ “goodwill.” “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
