Queen told to arrange Lilibets baptism when Harry returns to mend royal feud

The Queen has been urged to arrange a baptism for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter to help ease royal tensions.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor into the world last month, with senior royals delighted by the news.

It is not yet clear where the couple plan to baptise their child, though some commentators believe it may be carried out in California.

Royal expert Marlene Koenig, who runs royalmusings, believes a ceremony in the UK would unite the family.

She told the Daily Star: “There are reports that Harry might come back in September for another Diana event.

“If I were arranging things this would be the time where the Queen would say ‘let’s do the baptism, bring Lilibet over’.

“Have the immediate family, use that time. Spend a little time together, and that includes everyone.

“Sit down and talk and do what they need to do.”

However, Marlene isn't convinced "there will be one", and they may "have just done it privately".

Harry may join more than 100 friends, family and charity members for another Diana event in September, The Sun reported.

It is set to be held at Kensington Palace, and Meghan could end up joining him.

Harry and William were reunited in the grounds of Kensington Palace earlier this month for the unveiling of a statue in honour of their late mum.

They were pictured chatting and smiling during the ceremony, but Harry left briskly afterwards.

The Queenhas also invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex back to the UK next year for her Platinum Jubilee celebrations,the Mail on Sundayearlier reported.

During the Trooping The Colour ceremony, royals typically get into horse-drawn carriages before taking to the Buckingham Palace balcony.

In 2019, Harry and Meghan travelled alongsideKate MiddletonandCamilla .

However, Marlene believes next year’s ceremony will be decidedly different if they do attend.

She said: “I would not expect them to be in the carriage the way they were for the Trooping next year, as they were two years [ago] because they’re no longer senior royals."

Marlene added: "They will not be in a carriage, but would most likely join the other members of the Royal Family on the balcony."
