The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who have stepped down from royal duties after Megxit, have still got their strong ties with the royal family.
After the birth of their second child, daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor in June, the couple’s recent request has put Queen Elizabeth in a tricky situation.
As per reports, the duke and duchess of Sussex have requested the monarch to have their daughter Lilibet christened in Windsor in her presence. This wish has put the Queen in a difficult position, according to royal expert Angela Levin.
"That puts her in a very difficult position because she can't say that she is not free for years. She didn't go to Louis', the third child of Prince William and Kate. So it's not a spiteful thing,” Levin told TalkRadio TV.
Earlier, a source had told Daily Mail’s Richard Eden: "Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother.”
Moreover, the newborn, who has been on eleventh spot in the line of throne, has allegedly been left out of the royal line of succession as per the official royal website.
The news was made public once Lilibet’s name was not recognized a as a legitimate addition to the royal line of succession. The royal family has maintained silence on the matter.
