Will Queen Elizabeth Finally Meet Lilibe In Person? Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s Plan Reportedly Revealed
Recent reports have claimed that Queen Elizabeth II may finally meet her 11th grandchild, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their second born, Lilibet Diana, on June 4, 2021. The couple named their daughter after her paternal great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, whose childhood nickname was Lilibet, and her paternal grandmother, the late Princess Diana.
Until now, the members of the Royal Family, especially Her Majesty, haven’t meet Lilibet Diana in person. It can be noted that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now residing in the United States after stepping down as senior members of the Firm in 2020.
Queen Elizabeth II has yet to meet Prince Harry and Markle’s second baby in person, and recent reports suggested that it is happening soon. One source has claimed that the couple wanted to have Lilibet Diana christened at the same place where their firstborn, Archie Harrison, was christened.
"Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother," the insider told the Daily Mail.
In 2019, Archie was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury at St George's Chapel in Windsor. If ever the reports are, indeed, true, this would be Markle’s first trip back to the United Kingdom since March 2020. On the other hand, Prince Harry reportedly told to several people their plan.
As for when the couple wants to have Lilibet Diana christened, the source made it clear that the two are not in a rush to baptize their second daughter. Although they’ve told several people about it, the two are said to be “happy to wait until circumstances allow.”
There have been a lot of speculations surrounding Price Harry and Markle shortly after Lilibet Diana’s was born. Some have been wondering whether the couple will christen their daughter in the UK, especially since they already part ways with the Firm.
In a report via news.com.au, royal commentator Daniela Elser said that the Sussexes’ relationship with the Royal Family will improve if ever they choose to christen Lilibet Diana in the UK. Their return will also be a significant one, given that there have been a lot of rumors surrounding the firm.
The alleged rift between the Sussexes and the Royal Family was further ignited when the couple made a series of claims against the Royal Family in an interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this 2021. Now that there’s a possibility Lilibet Diana will be baptized at Windsor, many were anticipating their reunion.
