Lilibet was called "princess" for the first time: how the title changes after her baptism

Lilibet, Harry and Meghan’s second daughter, was christened and was named princess for the first time after the ceremony. Was the title formalized by the Royals?

For several weeks there has been a lot of talk about the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the reason is very simple: after being “evicted” from Frogmore House, they officially received the invitation to the coronation of King Charles III, just a pity that they haven’t replied yet. Many believed that it was connected to the not exactly idyllic relations with the English Royal Family, in truth it could be a consequence of the fact that the Sussexes were busy with a special event, the baptismo of the little one Lilibet. On Friday 3 March, the girl received the sacrament and, according to rumors, from now on she would be a princess in all respects.

The Baptism of Lilibet

Friday, March 3 was an emotional day for the Sussex family as Lilibet was christened and was the star of an intimate ceremony at their home in Montecito, California. Being a private event, the papaparazzi did not have the opportunity to “steal” some photos of Harry and Meghan with their children but, despite this, the tabloids still managed to know some indiscretions. The sweetest? Archie allegedly danced with his little sister during the ceremony, resulting in an adorable skit. Of the Royals, however, no trace: Harry and Meghan would have invited Carlo, Camilla, William and Kate but no one then attended the reception.

Are Lilibet and Archie Royal Highnesses?

It was above all the “gate title” that attracted the attention of the media: is Lilibet officially a princess or not? After the ceremony she was called “princess” for the first time by her parents’ spokesperson but the title was not formalized by the Royals: in fact, Archie and Lilibet have no noble recognition in the list of Windsor heirs. Soon, however, the Windsors should update the official family website, given that the little ones of the Sussex house would have become princes by right since their grandfather Charles ascended the throne. Only the sovereign could subvert the official rule, intervening personally to revoke the titles of his heirs. At the moment, however, the new king has not expressed himself on the matter, therefore Lilibet and Archie remain Royal Highnesses just as expected.
