The christening at Windsor is off - if it was ever on. Despite reports of hopes that the royal feud between the Sussexes and the House of Windsor would be brought to a close over baby Lilibet's official entry to the world, as things stand, according to royal sources, it's not to be.
Baby Lilibet, named after the Queen, and Meghan and Harry's second child, will not follow her brother Archie to the font of St George's Chapel in Windsor, and she will not wear the traditional royal christening gown, a recent replica of the original which was created in 1841, and has been worn by generations of royal babies including Prince William and Prince Harry.
Although the Queen has not yet met her latest great-granddaughter - and Prince Charles has not met his second granddaughter - it seems the decision has been made to have Lilibet christened in California, within America's episcopal church.
A royal source told The Telegraph: "There will not be a christening in the UK. It is not happening."
As a result, unlike her brother and cousins, Lilibet will not be a member of the church of England, the institution headed by her great-grandmother.
Meghan was confirmed as a member of the Church of England before marrying Harry, in 2018.

To the disappointment of royal fans, over four months after her birth, Harry and Meghan have not released any pictures of Lilibet, although they posed briefly for official photos when Archie was born, prior to leaving royal duties.
The ongoing family rift shows no sign of healing, as Prince Harry will not be attending a party to honour Princess Diana next week, although William is expected to be there.
There will be 100 guests, but seemingly, Diana's youngest son won't be amongst them.
However, a spokeswoman for the Sussexes said the plans for Lilibet’s christening were still being finalised and that claims to the contrary were “mere speculation”.
Back in July, a 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."
Though Harry visited in July for the unveiling of Diana's statue in Kensington Palace gardens, he flew straight back to the US to be with his family afterwards, and no olive branch appears to have been extended since.
Though it now seems unlikely that the Sussexes will visit Britain soon as a family, the Queen's platinum jubilee in 2022 could provide the impetus to bring the family back together once more, and finally give the monarch a chance to meet her namesake.
