Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly planning for their daughter Lilibet to be christened at Windsor Castle in front of the Queen.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their second child on June 4, and named their baby girl after Harry’s grandmother, whose family nickname is Lilibet.

The couple are currently living in California with Lilibet and their two-year-old son Archie, but sources have claimed Harry and Meghan will return to the UK to christen their daughter.

According to the Daily Mail, Harry shared their plans during his recent trip to the UK for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue at Kensington Palace.

A royal source said: “Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother.”

“They are happy to wait until circumstances allow.”

The couple’s first child Archie was christened at St George’s Chapel in Windsor back in 2019, but the Queen didn’t attend the intimate ceremony.

Meghan hasn’t returned to the UK since they quit life as senior working royals last March.

Since then, the couple have caused a lot of tension within the royal family – thanks to their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

Harry and Meghan made a number of shocking claims about the royal family during their interview, which hit headlines worldwide.

The Duchess of Sussex admitted she felt suicidal during her time as a senior working royal, and claimed she wasn’t supported by the Institution.

Meghan also alleged there were “concerns and conversations” about “how dark” their son’s skin might be when he was born.

A shocked Oprah responded: “What? Who, who is having that conversation with you? What?”

Meghan refused to reveal who was having those conversations as it would be “very damaging” to them, but claimed there were “several conversations about it, with Harry.”

Buckingham Palace later issued a statement addressing Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah.

The statement said: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.”

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
