Meghan Markle will face an ‘awkward reunion’ with The Firm if Lilibet is christened at Windsor because tensions are still ‘very high’ and the duchess is ‘not flavour of the month,’ royal expert claims
Meghan Markle could be faced with an ‘awkward’ reunion with the Royal Family if her daughter Lilibet gets christened in Windsor, a royal expert has claimed.
According to royal insiders, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s daughter Lilibet Diana could follow in the footsteps of older brother Archie and be christened in St George’s Chapel in Windsor with the Queen present.
However, royal expert Russell Myers has warned that it will be ‘definitely awkward’ as tensions are still running ‘very high within the family’.
‘It will be definitely awkward,’ he said, speaking to Today. ‘Meghan isn’t flavour of the month with the family. Certainly, the family have always said they will be much-loved members of the family.

‘However, we’re still talking about the fallout of the Oprah Winfrey interview, Emmy or no Emmy nomination.
‘The tensions are still running very, very high within the family, indeed.’
A source previously told the Daily Mail: ‘Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother Archie.
‘They are happy to wait until circumstances allow.’
The reunion would come in the aftermath of Harry and Meghan Markle‘s explosive two-hour CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired in March, where the royal made reference to his relationship with William amid reports the brothers had fallen out in the wake of Megxit.
Prince Harry told the talk show host: ‘As I’ve said before, I love William to bits. He’s my brother. ‘We’ve been through hell together. I mean, we have a shared experience. But we’re on different paths.

During the interview, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said racism drove them out of Britain and claimed their son Archie was denied the title of prince because he is mixed race.
Meghan also claimed that Kate Middleton left her in tears during a row over bridesmaid dresses and Prince Harry accused his father Prince Charles of refusing to take his calls when the pair moved to the US last year.
Russell Myers went on to suggest that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly wanting to give Lilibet Diana a royal christening shows an attempt from the royal couple to keep their royal connection.
‘Looking at the details, it looks as though they do want some continuity for their family life,’ he said.
‘Of course, their son Archie was christened at Windsor Castle before they jetted off to set up their new life in the United States.
‘However, when you’re looking at it as well, what do Harry and Meghan have at the moment?
‘They definitely want to keep their royal connection and this will be a sure-fire way to make sure everyone is talking about them in the royal way.’
