This is due to the Duke and Duchess of Susse**x’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 Susse**xes 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.
