Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby Lilibet could be christened during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend, according to royal experts.
On Saturday (June 5), Prince Harry’s second child will turn one, and there are fears that a surprise event will be planned during her majesty’s busy schedule.
Presenter Isabel Webster stressed on GB News that the rumours had not been “backed up by anyone official” when discussing the potential event.
“I heard Lilibet’s first birthday is on Saturday, so they might try to get her christened while they’re over in the UK,” she explained.
“And there’s a rumor that if Her Majesty is free on Sunday, who knows?”

Since her birth in June 2021, there has been a lot of speculation about lil’ Lilibet’s christening.
Unlike her brother Archie, who was christened two months after his birth in 2019, Lilibet’s christening has yet to be announced, prompting speculation that the couple is planning a special occasion.
Due to the couple’s residency in the United States, deciding where the child’s christening should take place has been difficult.
Due to security concerns, the couple has not returned with their entire family to the UK since 2020.

However, the couple is said to have received “ironclad assurances” that their family will be protected by specialist police as soon as they arrive during their Jubilee visit.
“Harry told people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother,” a royal source said in September 2021, according to the Mirror.
“They are content to wait until conditions permit.”
