The great-granddaughter of the British Queen Elizabeth II, whom her parents named after the British Queen and Lady Dee – Lilibet, turned four months old in early October.

Over the past weeks in the royal family, there has been only talk about where the baby will be baptized.

According to the tradition of the royal family, the sacrament is held at Windsor Abbey. But Prince Harry is against coming to the UK for this. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are about to hold a ceremony in the United States, where they currently reside.

Baptism can take place in one of the California temples that are part of the Anglican church congregation.

“There probably won’t be any celebrations for Lilibet’s baptism at Buckingham Court,” sources in the royal court say. – The likelihood of their being held in England is very small.

According to the traditions of the royal family, children unbaptized in Windsor cannot claim a place in the line for the succession to the throne. For Elizabeth II, the daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is the eleventh granddaughter. Their eldest child, son Archie, who was born in 2019, was baptized in the UK.

Representatives of Prince Harry said that the grandson of the British queen and his wife also refuse to come to London for the celebration in memory of Princess Diana, scheduled for October 19. Friends of the royal family are invited to it, donating funds for the creation of the statue of Lady Dee, installed this summer in the garden of Kensington Palace.

Since Prince Harry and his wife moved to the United States, he only came home a few times, and even then alone: ​​to the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, and then to the opening of the statue.
