Royal family skips Meghan and Harry’s daughter’s christening


It seems that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are still in trouble with the royal family.

Meghan and Harry christened their daughter, Lilibet Diana, on March 3 and the royal family did not attend.

The Invictus Games founder, 38, and the former actress, 41, had invited King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton to the joyous occasion, a source recently revealed. told people.

Another insider revealed details about the event, sharing that there were between 20 and 30 guests at the intimate bash at Meghan and Harry’s residence in Montecito, California. After the ceremony, attendees were treated to a meal and an afternoon of dancing, the source said.

The 21-month-old was baptized by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rt. Reverend John Taylor.

Among those in attendance were Lilibet’s godfather, filmmaker Tyler Perry, an anonymous godmother, as well as Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.

Perry, 53, had been seen landing in Montecito last week just before the religious ceremony. The entertainer flew in from Atlanta with a 10-piece gospel choir, singing “Oh Happy Day” and “This Little Light of Mine.”

Perry confessed in the couple’s Netflix documentary series “Harry & Meghan” which came out last year that he refused to travel to Britain for Lilibet’s christening, should the event take place across the pond.

Perry wanted to “not do all that in church with them and figure all that out,” insinuating that all the drama surrounding The Firm turned him off.

“Maybe we can have a private ceremony here and leave it at that,” he said. “And if you have to do it there, that’s okay.”

The creator of “Madea” has been friends with Harry and Meghan for years and invited them over stay in his $18 million home when they first came to the United States in 2020.

Elsewhere in the document, Perry discussed the stressful treatment Meghan allegedly endured at the hands of the royal family and the press, recalling how frightened she sounded when she called him for help in 2020.

Lilibet Diana was born in June 2021 and was named after Harry’s late mother, Princes Diana and Queen Elizabeth.

“I could hear the fear [in her voice]. It was palpable. I mean, I could hear it,’ Perry said. “This woman has been abused. And so too [Prince Harry].”

“[Meghan] was afraid of [the royal family] destroy her, or go crazy, or make her think she was crazy,” Perry continued.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also parents to 3-year-old son, Archie Harrison. The toddler was baptized in July 2019 in the United Kingdom, in the presence of the royals.

After the passing of Queen Elizabeth II last September, Lilibet and Archie received royal titles according to rules established by King George V in 1917.

Prince Harry has said he wants his children to have a good relationship with the royal family.

“I’ve said before that I wanted a family, not an institution — so of course I’d like nothing more than for our kids to have relationships with members of my family, and they do with some of them, which gives me great joy,” Harry told People in January.

Though, while promoting his memoir “Spare,” Harry spoke of “feeling increasingly distant” from his family abroad. These comments come just as it was announced that Charles, 74, would be evicting Harry and Meghan from their home at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, England. The embattled Prince Andrew is said to have been given their home.

Both Harry and Meghan were reportedly invited to Charles’ coronation on May 6, but their plan to attend has not yet been confirmed.
