Meghan and Harry's daughter Princess Lilibet Diana is christened

Prince Harry and Meghan reveal they have christened daughter ‘Princess Lilibet Diana’ in intimate Californian ceremony carried out by Archbishop of LA – as couple’s friend Omid Scobie claims ‘King Charles and William were invited – but didn’t come’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter has been christened ‘Princess Lilibet Diana’ in a small ceremony at their home in California, it was revealed today.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hosted the religious ceremony last Friday which was carried out by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Reverend John Taylor.

The couple’s spokesman said: ‘I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3 by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor.’

Royal journalist Omid Scobie, who is close to the Sussexes, reported that ‘King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William, Princess Kate were invited but didn’t attend’.  It is not known whether any other Royal Family members were present.

It is understood 21-month-old Lili’s title of princess and Archie’s title as a prince will be used in formal settings, but not in everyday conversational use by the couple.

Harry and Meghan are thought to be keen to not deny their children their birthright, but to allow them the chance to decide for themselves when older whether to drop or keep using the titles.

People magazine reported that there were between 20 and 30 guests at the event, including Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland and Lilibet’s godfather Tyler Perry.

The filmmaker had been spotted paying a visit to Harry and Meghan’s Montecito home last Friday and at a airport in Los Angeles where he boarded his private jet.
