The latest news from Harry and Meghan suggests that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want daughter Lilibet Diana to be baptized in Windsor.

Not only that, they want the Queen to be there.

And Harry made his “intentions” clear during his recent trip to the UK to unveil a statue of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales.

Harry and Meghan: what’s the latest on Lilibet’s baptism?

Royal sources have claimed that Harry and Meghan are requesting a royal baptism for their daughter in the presence of the monarch.

The couple’s intentions apparently became apparent during Harry’s recent return to the UK, where he was reunited with his brother Prince William.

“Harry has told several people that they want Lili baptized in Windsor, as has her brother Archie,” a royal source told the Daily Mail.

“They like to wait until circumstances permit.”

Should such a baptism take place, it would be Meghan’s first trip back to our shores since she stepped down as high-ranking royals.

Where does Lili sit in the succession?

Baby Lili, who was born six weeks ago, should now be eighth on the throne.

However, according to the royal family website, the succession has not yet been updated.

It will be understood that the list will not be updated until the dead is baptized.

And when she is baptized, she will catapult Prince Andrew – who currently ranks eighth – to ninth place in the line of succession.

Who will be there at Lili’s baptism?

Well, if it’s anything like her big brother Archie’s, it’s kept a secret.

He was baptized in a private closed-door ceremony with only 25 people in attendance.

It took place at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor in 2019.

The queen did not attend and the guests came through a back entrance of the property.

Usually the baby’s godparents are named on the morning of the christening – but Meghan and Harry kept this detail a secret.

Chelmsford Dean Nicholas Henshall previously told the BBC: “Baptism should never be private. It is a public demonstration of God’s love. “
