Members of the royal family will most likely not attend the baptism of Prince Harry’s four-month-old daughter and Duchess Meghan. Queen Elizabeth II should not come either. This is claimed by the British expert on the royal family, Ingrid Seward. There have also been reports that baptism will not take place in the UK, as is customary.
Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born four months ago in Santa Barbara, California to the Duchess and Duke of Sussex. Harry and Meghan have not yet had her baptized as expected by the traditions of the British royal family. In addition, according to sources from around the royal family, the baptism will take place in California, not in the UK, as is customary. He informed about it British daily Telegraph.
Four-month-old Lilibet should traditionally be baptized in the Anglican Church. Lilibet’s parents instead are planning a baptism at the Episcopal Church in the United Stateswhere the family currently lives. Little Lilibet would not automatically be considered a member of the Anglican Church. But that would not affect her position in the succession to the royal throne.
The duke and duchess will probably not publish any details of when and where the baptism should take place. “If it was in the UK, people would find out. If it happens in California, I don’t know if there will be any official announcement,” said British family expert Ingrid Seward.
According to Seward Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and Kate and Harry’s brother Prince William will most likely not be baptized. “Their schedules are planned six months in advance, I don’t think they would take the time,” an expert told the Telegraph newspaper, adding that Prince Harry’s friends might be able to attend the event.
