Prince William reportedly blocked Harry and Meghan’s plan to have their daughter, Lilibet Diana, christened in the U.K., a royal expert has claimed.

According to royal expert Neil Sean, the Sussexes were unlikely to bring Lilibet to the U.K. for christening at Windsor Castle because senior members of the Royal Family, including Prince William, have rejected the plan.

Meghan “wanted her daughter, Lilibet Diana, to be christened in the place she was married,” but the plan came to a “grinding halt” after Prince William opposed it, Sean said.

“According to a very good source, Prince William was the one who basically said ‘no, we don’t think this is going to work,'” Sean added, according to Express.

The royal commenter explained that William “basically decided there wasn’t an appetite for this,” and that William was “so far, not willing to kiss and make up with his younger brother.”

Prince Harry told people he wanted Lilibet christened in the U.K.

The latest development comes after royal expert Richard Eden revealed in an article published in the Daily Mail that sources said Harry and Meghan wanted to bring Lilibet to the U.K. for christening.

According to Eden, a source close to the Royals revealed that when Harry visited the U.K. in July to attend the unveiling of a statue in honor of Princess Diana, he told people that he and Meghan wanted “a royal christening for their baby, Lilibet, held in the presence of the Queen.”

Subsequent reports that Harry could visit the U.K. in September to attend an event celebrating Diana’s life, sparked speculation he and Meghan could bring Lilibet to the U.K. for christening.

Sussexes warned they could damage relations if they broke christening traditions

Royals fans began speculating that Lilibet’s christening could take place in the U.K. soon after she was born on June 4 at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California.

Amid speculation that Meghan and Harry could extend an olive branch to the Royal Family by bringing Lilibet the U.K. for christening, some royal watchers warned that the Sussexes could permanently damage relations if they failed to observe cherished family christening traditions.

Some of the Royal Family’s christening traditions that date back to Queen Victoria include ceremonial costumes, the silver-gilt font, and the use of water taken from the Jordan River.

Royal Family christenings usually take place at Windsor Castle and are officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Monsters & Critics reported that Lilibet’s elder brother, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, was christened in a ceremony that took place at a private chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday, July 6, 2019.

Several senior members of the Royal Family attended the ceremony officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

However, the Queen and Prince Philip could not attend due to prior commitments.

  1. Hi I don’t think it would be wise to let Harry and make them Megan Christian eating her daughter at the UK after everything that they said and done to the queen I am not from the UK I’m from the USA but I am appalled by all that Harry has done to his family his family should be cherished not put down Harry and Meghan has done too much damage to the Royal Family.

    • I agree with you, I think it is a palling what they have done to his family! All for the sack of Megan wanting fame and Fortune. She’s a gold digger and I think HRH William was right to question her motives before the wedding

  3. I follow everthing Royal… with that being said…. I agree..they should not be allowed to Christene the baby in Royal fashion… they have stepped down from England as Royals and should be treated as such…Megan is just pushing buttons to cause turmoil and see what she can be in charge of… Good for Prince William for stepping up… So now this will be her weapon to keep Harry from attending his Mothers Ceremony which has nothing to do with Being Royal but the son of Diana.. I hope Harry attends and leaves Megan in USA.

  4. They bullied Diana. They murdered Diana. Now they’re doing it to Megan because she is partially black? William and Charles care less as long as they bully everyone around them. British tabloids have rendered Megan unfit for royal life because of her heritage. What’s right for William & Cayhrtine is wrong for Harry & Megan. WHISKEY FOXTROT TANGO
    Funny how that works.
    Diana had a cheating husband in Charles chasing after a married woman in Camilla who is now his wife who Britians just love and adore. Funny how that works. Harry settled down with the wrong color or this wouldn’t be an issue. Funny how that works. I guess since the marriage with Megan who wasn’t 100% white and not some inbred match is frowned upon. Bully her and they’ll divorce because let’s face it British tabloids made more money by his bad boy single ways than a married mature man that he’s come to be. Charles, William, & Catherine can all bugger off. Harry has a family to think of FIRST. A wife and two children that need him more than the two selfish men in line to take the throne!!!
    FACTS!!!!

    • Well said….the most reasonable answer I have seen in a long time. Most people are biased, discriminatory and insensitive, after all, Royals are just public aid receivers, using funds from the poor public to live big… Thank you for your courage…Lilli bet must be christened like other Royal babies….the right and honorable thing to do….William must not be in the way…that will make him an insensitive Uncle…

    • Exactly!! Both Charles and William are insecure men. They want their women to stand in their shadows. This is why Charles couldn’t stand Diana’s popularity. This is also why they can’t stand Meghan. Cannot believe William treating his own brother this way. It’s ugly and there’s no royalty there.
