Prince Charles’ present from his Middle East trip could lead to Lilibet’s christening in the United Kingdom.

From his trip to the Middle East, Prince Charles is planning to bring ‘five or six dozen’ bottles of holy water back to the UK, which could be used at Lilibet Diana’s christening.

Prince Charles is expected to return from his Middle Eastern royal vacation carrying bottles of holy water, which might have major implications for Lilibet Diana’s christening.

There has been months of speculation over where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have their daughter baptized, with some experts suggesting that a ceremony in the United Kingdom could help to end the royal rivalry.

Despite initial rumours that the Sussexes were keen on a Windsor wedding, royal sources have stated that this is unlikely.

According to The Mirror, Charles is taking bottles of holy water from the River Jordan back to the UK, and it’s being speculated that they’ll be used to baptize his granddaughter.

During their tour, the Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, put their hands in the Jordan River, which is where Jesus was baptized.

The elaborate silver gilt Lily Font, which is part of the Crown Jewels, is traditionally used to baptize royal babies with Jordanian water.

The Royal Family had requested the holy water, according to Rustom Mkhjian, director general of the baptism site.

According to the Daily Mail, he said: “You are entirely correct. Prior to this journey, the Embassy requested a few dozens [bottles]of holy water, and we delivered them with five dozen, six dozen.” He stated that he was unaware of the purpose of the holy water.

“I didn’t know and didn’t want to ask, but they claimed we wanted it for subsequent baptization of children. Yes, there will be further baptisms “He went on to clarify.

Lilibet isn’t the only royal baby who hasn’t been baptized yet; Princess Beatrice’s daughter Sienna Elizabeth is also awaiting her baptism.

Archie, Lilibet’s brother, was baptized at Windsor with Jordan River water.

Due to Covid, Charles and Camilla’s current royal journey is their first in nearly two years, and it will take them to Egypt and Jordan.

Their trip was organized at the request of the administration in order to strengthen bilateral connections and raise awareness of the climate change threat.

At the Al, they met King Abdullah II and Queen Rania. Brinkwire summarizes the story.
