According to a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter, Lilibet, has been christened, which was first reported by People.

Their spokesperson stated, "I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3 by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor."

People magazine reported that Lilibet's parents had invited King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William, and Catherine, Princess of Wales to the event, but they did not attend. This announcement marks the first time the title of princess has been used publicly for Lilibet, who is entitled to it under the usual protocol as a male-line grandchild of the monarch.

Lilibet was born in June 2021, while her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, was still on the throne. It was only when her grandfather, Charles, became monarch that she became entitled to be known as princess. Although the Buckingham Palace website currently does not reflect this, a source told CNN that the site would be updated in due course.

In response to the news, Natalie Rowe, a former friend of British politician George Osborne, tweeted, "Meghan and Harry's daughter has been Christened 'PRINCESS Lilibet Diana' by the Archbishop of Los Angeles. To all the Meghan haters, eat that!" Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, author of This Is Why I Resist, also wrote on Twitter, "I'm glad cutie, Princess Lilibet Diana, was surrounded by those who love & wish her well. Well done Harry and Meghan for keeping christening intimate. Shameful that King Charles & Prince William snubbed Lilibet though invited. Petty. Was there representation from Royal Family?"

Meanwhile, Dan Wootton, a host on GB News and regular critic of the Sussexes, tweeted, "Baffling that wretched Harry and Meghan refer to their daughter Lilibet as 'Princess' in the announcement of her christening. They hate everything about the institution of the monarchy and are trying to bring it down, yet still want to push it on their very Californian daughter."

It is noteworthy that Lilibet's christening was a private affair and not a public event, as was the case with her brother Archie's christening. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made it clear that they wish to protect their children's privacy, which has led to criticism from some members of the media and the public.

Despite the mixed reactions to the news of Lilibet's christening, it is clear that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain in the public eye and continue to be a source of interest and debate.
