It’s been just over two weeks since Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor’s christening and the subject continues to give us something to talk about. It was after the event held on March 3 that it became known that the youngest daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle holds the title of princess, as does her brother Archie.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle baptize daughter Lilibet in California; his godfather was the African-American actor Tyler Perry, who helped the Duke and Duchess of Sussex move to California

Details such as who the bishop was who officiated the baptism and why his godfather, actor Tyler Perry, did not want the ceremony to take place in the UK are still up for debate.

In 2002, he married Kathy O’Connor, and in 2004 he was ordained a priest. Years later, he was elected the seventh Bishop of Los Angeles for the Episcopal Diocese, a position he assumed in 2017. Since then, the father of four and grandfather of two grandchildren has dedicated himself to “promoting reconciliation” and “transparency.”

Lilibet, who will turn two next June, is now an actor for the godfather Tyler Perry who, according to Mail Online, is a staunch defender of the Duke of Sussex. Despite this, the media understands he would refuse to allow the christening to take place in the UK.

Perry (53) said that he felt “honored” by this choice of Harry and Meghan, so he did not hesitate to fly on a private plane from Atlanta to California. As a gesture to the Sussexes, the actor brought a 10-piece gospel choir to the private ceremony.

When the director appeared in a Netflix documentary about the couple, he admitted that he only agreed to be Lilibeta’s best man if he didn’t have to travel to the UK for the christening because he didn’t want to attend a ceremony with royalty, the Mail Online reviews.

“I put the phone down and figured it all out, and then I called them and said, ‘Wait a minute, does that mean we have to go over there and do it all at church with them and figure it all out? outside? Because I don’t want to do that,” Perry mentions in the documentary.

The English media reminds that traditionally children born within the monarchy are baptized in royal residences, as happened with Archie’s ceremony at Windsor Castle in July 2019.

In the case of Lilibet Diana it was different. The American Princess of Windsor was christened in an intimate ceremony at her parents’ mansion. His grandfather, King Charles of England, was invited to the celebration, as well as his wife Camila and the Princes of Wales, William and Kate Middleton, although they all declined to participate, according to international media.

Harry’s maternal aunts, Princess Diana’s sisters, were the only ones who accepted the invitation and did not leave Harry and Meghan alone on such an important day for the Sussexes. (AND)
