So, they are not anti-title?

I am so confused why someone so averse to titles wanted their daughter to have one.

Also, just as a FYI, there is a church of the same denomination five minutes from their house where the daughter could have been christened instead of driving two hours taking a plane, being met by the staff and security who did drive the two hours and having a Bishop perform the service.

Though, things would be awkward because they would have to explain why they never actually go to church.

Meghan and Harry’s Daughter Lilibet Has a Christening—And a New Title

People reports that Lilibet was christened on Friday, by the Right Reverend John Taylor, the current Episcopal Bishop of Los Angeles. The ceremony took place in the couple’s Montecito home.

A spokesperson for the couple confirmed the event in a statement to People. “I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3 by the [Bishop] of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor,” it read.

The magazine reports that Tyler Perry traveled from Atlanta to Los Angeles for the event, bringing along a 10 -person gospel choir that sang “Oh Happy Day” and “This Little Light of Mine.” In December’s Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan, Meghan and Harry revealed that they had asked Perry to be one of Lilibet’s godparents. People added that Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland was also present, along with an unnamed godmother, and that after the ceremony, Lilibet and her brother Archie Mountbatten-Windsor danced together at a reception. They added that King Charles III, Queen Consort Camilla, and the Prince and Princess of Wales were all invited to the ceremony but did not attend.


The fact that Meghan and Harry’s spokesperson have called the infant “Princess Lilibet” is a sign that the couple will in fact be using the title of Prince and Princess for their children, at least in formal situations. According to a 1917 Letters Patent signed by Harry’s great-great-grandfather George V, all grandchildren of a monarch are entitled to “Prince” or “Princess.” Upon Charles’s accession to the throne in September, the changes for Archie and Lilibet were not acknowledged openly, and the palace website’s listing of the order of succession was not altered, even though new titles were given for Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Later that month, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson told Buzzfeed News that “the focus now is on mourning the queen, and [the issue of Archie and Lilibet’s titles] is something for further down the line.” – Source
