Prince Harry 'made clear to Queen & royals on Princess Di's memorial visit that he wanted Lili christened at Windsor'

PRINCE Harry made it clear to the Royal Family that he wanted daughter Lilibet christened at Windsor when he returned to the UK earlier this month, it's reported.

The Duke of Sussex flew back to unveil a statue of Diana alongside brother William – and while he was in the country, he is said to have told family of his plans.

He and Meghan are no longer senior royals, and both have made a series of bombshell claims about the family in interviews.

But it's now believed the couple may return soon so their baby daughter can be christened surrounded by family.

It comes as:

  • Kate Middleton and Prince William lead birthday tributes to the Duchess of Cornwall as she turns 74
  • A royal expert says the Queen is back with a "real burst" following her beloved husband's death
  • Charles is reportedly "adamant" that Camilla will be crowned Queen Consort
  • And the Prince of Wales 'will make his brother Edward the Duke of Edinburgh – but not for eight years'
  • Elsewhere, a commentator claims Meghan and Harry's Emmy nod is "farcical" as they "spouted complete untruths" to Oprah

It would be Meghan's first trip to the UK since the pair departed for LA last year.

A source told The Daily Mail: "Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother.

"They are happy to wait until circumstances allow."

Lili's brother, Archie, was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury amid unprecedented secrecy at St George's Chapel, Windsor, in 2019.  

The 25 invited guests – who did not include the Queen – arrived discreetly on the day through a back entrance to the ground.

Harry and Meghan refused to name their son's godparents after he was christened while they were still senior and full-time royals – and may well do the same again for Lilibet.

Details of royal babies' godparents had always been made public previously.

The royal couple are planning to return in 2022 for his grandmother's Platinum Jubilee.

And the Duke appeared delighted to be back home and surrounded by family at Kensington Palace this month.

He beamed as he greeted his late mother's sisters and brother in the SunkenGarden before both he and William revealed the statue of Diana together.


The princes even issued a joint statement, despite the strains between them – although they did not give a speech at the ceremony.

The brothers are believed to have been speaking over text again – raising hopes for a reconciliation after the Sussexes gave an explosive interview to Oprah in March.

During the chat, they alleged a senior royal had made racist comments about their son Archie's skin colour – while Meghan claimed Kate made her cry over bridesmaids' dresses.

And tensions were doubtless inflamed after the Duke of Sussex went on to discuss his family in further interviews.

He said he'd been shown "total neglect" for his mental health – and said his father had made him "suffer" during his "nightmare" life as a royal in yet another Oprah production.

Even the naming of his daughter caused a row – after it was alleged he and Meghan hadn't told the Queen they'd be using her private nickname.

Harry threatened legal action against the BBC over claims he didn't ask the Queen for permission.
