On Wednesday, March 8, Harry and Meghan revealed that they had named their daughter Lilibet. Only, as Hello Magazine pointed out this March 9, the date of this announcement comes with a heartbreaking memory…
A coincidence for the least disturbing. On Wednesday, March 8, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lifted the veil on a mystery: that of the baptism of their young daughter, Lilibet. They did indeed have her baptized. But, as Hello Magazine pointed out, this Thursday, March 9, the date of this announcement, which was eagerly awaited by the crowned heads, is accompanied by a sad memory.
Indeed, if the day of March 8 is known worldwide for being the day of women’s rights, it is also very important in the eyes of the British royal family. It was six months ago, to the day, that Queen Elizabeth II lost her life. As a reminder, the late sovereign died peacefully at her home in Balmoral on September 8 at the age of 96. A coincidence that probably crossed the minds of King Charles III, Prince William and other members of the Firm.
Baptism of Lilibet: were Charles, William and Kate present?
As revealed by the American magazine People, Wednesday, March 8, Harry and Meghan have baptized their daughter Lilibet in the United States. According to their information, it was Archbishop John Taylor who officiated the ceremony, in their home in Montecito. An event that took place on March 3 and to which few people were invited. However, as reported by our colleagues, King Charles III, Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton have, despite the current tensions, received an invitation. However, everything leads us to believe that they have declined this famous invitation, without giving explanations.
However, according to the information of the media, Lilibet was nevertheless able to count on the presence of his parents, his older brother Archie and his grandmother Doria. Among the twenty guests, there was also his godfather, the American producer Tyler Perry and his godmother, whose identity was not disclosed.
