"Arise" Princess Lilibet - Meghan Markle & Prince Harry confirm Lilibet was baptised on March 3rd 2023

OK so Lili was not made a peer of the realm but in a story that was broken by People Magazine we learned that at Lilibet's March 3rd 2023 christening,  the 21 month year-old second child of Harry and Meghan was officially baptised Princess Lilibet Diana - and it is the Princess part that is making world headlines.

Kind thoughts for Meghan Markle

True to Harry and Meghan's usual method of releasing stories whenever they can,  we learned of the baptism of Lili 5 days after the happy event. 

We are told that the religious ceremony was held at the family home in Montecito, with the bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor officiating and with Tyler Perry confirmed as Lili's Godfather - something he had revealed during the December 2022 airing of Meghan and Harry's Netflix series. 

The name of Lili's Godmother has not yet been revealed and may not be.

"Arise" Princess Lilibet - Meghan Markle & Prince Harry confirm Lilibet was christened on March 3rd 2023

A statement for Rev. John Taylor on the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angles website reads as follows: "On behalf of Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry, and at the invitation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, I had the blessing of presiding as the sacrament of Holy Baptism was conferred on their daughter, Princess Lilibet Diana, on Friday, March 3 at their home in Montecito. Prince Harry and Meghan were gracious hosts to the congregation of family and friends who were present."

Least the UK Royals should feel they were being left out of the party, we also learned that Meghan and Harry extended an invite to King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton, but they were not in attendance - presumably due to the distance of having to travel to LA (I am being generous here!)

More details of this small and private family gathering are sure to leak over the coming days - I am hoping to see some official christening photos of Lili.
