It’s only been two minutes since the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s daughter Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, but already – it seems – thoughts are starting to turn to the baby’s baptism.
While no firm details have yet been released by the Sussex family, The telegraph reports that – according to royal sources – baby Lili will not be baptized in the UK.
The couple’s first child, Archie Harrison, was baptized at Windsor Castle in 2019, and it has been suggested that Meghan and Harry will travel from their home in California to the UK, to baptize Lili in the same way. However, the newspaper quoted a palace insider as saying: “There will be no baptism in the UK. This is not happening. While he says another source suggested it was “very unlikely”.
Instead of, The telegraph suggests that Lili is likely to be baptized into the United States Episcopal Church, which is a member church of the Anglican World Communion.
