Prince William, King Charles, Kate Middleton Skip Lilibet's Christening Despite Invite From Harry and Meghan
Prince William, Kate Middleton, King Charles and Camila, Queen Consort, all opted not to attend the christening of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter, Lilibet, despite being invited to the private ceremony.A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan confirmed to ET that an intimate ceremony was held last week at their home in Montecito, California, for the couple's 21-month-old daughter. «I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3, by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev. John Taylor,» the spokesperson shared.According to, the ceremony was attended by 20-30 guests including Lilibet's godfather, Tyler Perry, an unnamed godmother and Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland.Although the royals were not in attendance, ET can confirm that Lilibet’s title of princess is in line with the precedent created by the letters patent issued by George V in 1917, which conferred the title of prince or princess on male line grandchildren of the Sovereign, meaning she and her brother, Archie, 3, have been able to hold the titles since Charles' accession.The royal family's absence comes after months of turmoil between Harry, Meghan, William and Charles, following the release of Harry's memoir,.
