🤢🤧😉 Lilibet Diana, who shares both the Queen's pet name and Harry's mother Diana's name, was born in California in June.

🤢🤧😉 It is not yet know where she will be christened, although royal commentator Robert Jobson suggests it would be "breathtaking" for Meghan and Harry to expect any kind of royal affair.

🤢🤧😉 Writing in The Mirror, he said: "Now there is talk - as she is already older than her brother Archie was when he was christened – that they are pushing for a ceremony in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.

🤢🤧😉 "To some, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's sense of entitlement might seem breathtaking.

🤢🤧😉 "They seem to be blissfully unaware of the mayhem their behaviour has caused the Queen, the monarchy and the Royal Family."

🤢🤧😉 Harry and Meghan’s decision to name their second child Lilibet was considered by many an attempt heal their rift with the Royal Family.

🤢🤧😉 But according to Jobson, "it backfired spectacularly".

🤢🤧😉 The BBC reported that the couple had not consulted the Queen about the name Lilibet - something the Sussexes went on to dispute.

🤢🤧😉 Buckingham Palace stayed silent on the matter from then on, with many assuming it was because they backed the BBC's version of events.

🤢🤧😉 But despite the awkward confusion, Meghan and Harry have made an audacious bid for a UK meeting with the Queen in the coming weeks.

🤢🤧😉 They have offered to fly in to see the monarch — for the Duchess’s first return trip to the UK since March 2020’s Megxit and Her Majesty's first opportunity to meet her great-grandaughter.

🤢🤧😉 It is believed Harry has also made “olive branch” calls to his family as he and Meghan plan Lilibet's christening.

🤢🤧😉 But senior staff are said to be stunned by the request for a meeting, months after the couple blasted the Royal Family in a chat with TV pal Oprah Winfrey.

🤢🤧😉 And Jobson writes: "One must remember too as great-grandmother she is under no real obligation to attend any planned baptism for Lili, even if she gives it the nod to take place in Windsor.

🤢🤧😉 "Unless they can secure a date soon, her parents may just decide to host the christening in America instead.

🤢🤧😉 "If they do, well-placed royal sources say members of the Firm, including the boss, Her Majesty, will breathe 'a sigh of relief'."
