In a major insult to Queen Elizabeth, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may skip Lilibet Diana’s baptism entirely.
This is due to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s desire to keep their daughter out of the public glare.
Daniela Elser, a royal specialist, brought up the controversy surrounding Meghan and Harry’s refusal to designate Archie’s godparents after he was baptised while they were still senior and full-time royals.
She wrote, “In hindsight, the handling of Archie’s christening was a turning point for the couple and you can draw a straight line from that furore to ‘Megxit’.”
Talking about Lilibet’s christening, Elser continued, “However, if the Sussexes decided to hold the ceremony in California, thus precluding the Queen who no longer travels internationally from attending, it would be seen as nothing less than a clear rejection of the royal family.
“There is also a third option here: They decide to skip a baptism entirely. But again, this too would be read as deeply disrespectful to Her Majesty given she is, after all, the head of the Church of England,” she added.
