Meghan and Prince Harry, who are living in California after quitting royal duties, reportedly want to christen their daughter Lilibet Diana at Windsor Castle in front of the Queen. But royal expert Russell Myers warned the Duchess of Sussex “isn’t flavour of the month” with the Royal Family.

Mr Myers told Today: “It will be definitely awkward.

“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.”

Mr Myers’ comments come after reports that Meghan and Harry are planning for Lili, who was born last month, to be christened in Windsor like her brother Archie whose baptism was held at the royal residence’s private chapel.

Harry is said to have made the royals aware of his wish during his recent return to the UK.

A royal source told the Daily Mail: “Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother.

“They are happy to wait until circumstances allow.”

Reports that the Sussexes want Lili christened in Britain are likely to come as a surprise to some royal fans.

Harry and Meghan hit out at the Royal Family in their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, which aired in March and has been nominated for an Emmy Award.

The couple made a series of explosive claims about the royals in the tell-all programme, including racism accusations.

Harry went on to make further controversial comments about his family in the following weeks.

He even appeared to suggest the Queen, the late Prince Philip and Prince Charles had all failed as parents.

Harry returned to the UK for the second time since Megxit for the unveiling of a Princess Diana at Kensington Palace earlier this month.

Much attention was on Harry and his brother Prince William, who have been embroiled in a long-running rift, ahead of the event.

The Duke of Sussex previously travelled to Britain for Prince Philip’s funeral in April.

The funeral came just weeks after his and Meghan’s TV interview and Harry is said to have received a “frosty reception” from some family members.

The Sussexes quit royal duties in March 2020 for a new life of personal and financial freedom in America.
