The headlines about the christening of Princess Lilibet (1) never end! The daughter of Prince Harry (38) and Duchess Meghan (41) was baptized in America on March 3rd. In Harry and Meghan’s statement confirming the christening, Lilibet was referred to by her new title for the first time. According to a royal expert, this should have been a surprise for the palace!

As the royal expert Russell Myers said in an interview “The Royal Beat” now explained, the statement on Lilibet’s christening must have come as a surprise to the palace: “The way it was publicized totally blew everyone away! I don’t think Buckingham Palace was prepared for that.” He goes on to claim that the palace assumed Harry and Meghan would give them a final update before announcing the title. “The sentiment I noticed was that’s probably not the case. I think that says a lot about everyone’s relationship and how broken it really is.”

Harry and Meghan are said to have been dating King Charles III last year. (74) discussed the titles for Archie (3) and Lilibet. The titles “prince” and “princess” have been children’s birthrights since Charles took the throne. The official website of the palace was changed after the baptism.
