Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly want their baby daughter to be christened in front of the Queen.

It would be Meghan’s first trip to the UK since the couple stepped down as senior members of the royal family, left for the US and blasted the firm in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Harry is said to have expressed his desire for daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten Windsor to be christened in Windsor during his recent trip home.
The Prince and his brother William unveiled a statue of their late mother Princess Diana on July 1.
“Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother,” the source told The Daily Mail.
“They are happy to wait until circumstances allow.”
It comes after Harry and Meghan sparked a war of words over whether they had asked the Queen for permission to give their baby her childhood nickname, Lilibet.
The Duke of Sussex threatened legal action against the BBC after the broadcaster reported that they hadn’t.
Harry claimed his grandmother was “supportive” of his choice of name, but Palace insiders say this isn’t the case.
Speaking to Sunrise, royal commentator Rob Jobson said he’s “not surprised” the Sussexes might wish to start rebuilding their relationship with the royals.
“Meghan and Harry always seem to want the red carpet rolled out for them don’t they,” he said.
But he suggests it will take more than a christening ceremony for them to regain trust.
“There are certain things that have gone on that I think are going to be difficult to rebuild, particularly the William and Harry relationship.”
“That doesn’t seem to have got anywhere.”
