Mystery surrounds Lilibeth’s godmother as Meghan Markle and Harry’s daughter christens alongside her famous godfather
AMERICAN actor Tyler Perry is Lilibeth’s godfather, but the identity of her godmother remains unknown.
The billionaire director and an unnamed woman were next to the boy secret baptism Art California last week, it was confirmed today.
About 25 guests gathered for the celebration Prince Harry and Meghan Markledaughter on March 3, PEOPLE reports.
He was among them Perry53, known for his iconic character of Madea and the unknown godmother.
Oprah Winfrey and Serena Williams were rumored to be in the running for the position when Lilibeth was born in June 2021, but nothing has been confirmed.
Her brother Archie’s godparents are Harry’s former nannies Tiggy Pettyfera former officer in the Welsh Guards Mark Dyer and a close friend Charlie van Straubensee.
Members of Art The royal family were allegedly invited to Lily’s christening at the Sussex family home, but decided not to go.
King Charles, Camila, Prince William and Kate According to the source, they were asked to attend but declined.
Instead, the Duke and Duchess had a three-year-old son ArchieMegan’s mom Doria RaglandPerry and 20 to 30 close friends.
They are said to have enjoyed food and dancing at their home after the ceremony.
A spokesperson for the couple told PEOPLE, “I can confirm that Princess Lilibeth Diana was baptized on Friday, March 3, by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Most Reverend John Taylor.”
This is the first time Lily has been publicly referred to as a princess.
It is clear that a 21-month-old will use the name in formal settings, but not in everyday conversation.
Harry and Meg are understood to be keen not to deny their children their birthright, but to allow them to decide for themselves whether to give up the titles or continue using them as they grow older.
As children of the sovereign’s son, Archie and Lily automatically become prince and princess and are now styled HRH when they choose.
When Archie was born in May 2019, he was seventh in line to the throne, so he was too far down the line of succession.
Although he was the great-grandson of the monarch, he was not the first-born of the future king, so he was not automatically a prince.
The king has been notified of Harry and Meghan’s intention to use the titles in official settings from March 2023, an insider said A mirror.
Buckingham Palace said the royal website, which currently lists the children as Master Archie and Miss Lilibeth, will be updated to reflect the change.
Allegedly, Lilibet’s best man flew to Montecito, Los Angelesfrom Atlanta for baptism with a gospel choir of 10 people.
The band performed Oh Happy Day and This Little Light of Minewhich was also played at Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018.
Perry was confirmed as Lily’s godfather in a Sussex Netflix documentary released last December.
Harry and Meghan, who stayed at the media mogul’s home for six weeks before finding a permanent home in Montecito, called him to ask him to take on the role.
Perry, whose fortune is estimated at more than $1 billion, said: “We’ll call and talk and talk nonsense and they were pretty serious on the phone and I’m like, ‘Okay, what’s going on?
“They said, ‘Well, we’d like you to be Lily’s godfather.’
“I’m like, ‘Whoah.’ I had to take a moment to realize it, and I thought, “I would be honored. I would be very honored.”
However, his one condition was that he did not want to fly to the UK for a church service with the Firm.
“I don’t want to do that,” he said.
“Maybe we can have a little private ceremony here and that’s it, and if you have to do it there, that’s fine.”
Traditionally, a royal christening is a small family celebration held in the historic chapels of Buckingham Palace or Windsor.
Archie was baptized at the age of eight weeks in silence, closed ceremony in the presence of about 25 guests at Windsor Castle on July 6, 2019.
Like many young royals before him, including his cousins George, Charlotte and Louis, he wore a special royal outfit.
It is unlikely that Lilibeth wore the same clothes, unless she flew by on purpose.
Doria, Charles, Camilla, William and Kate were in attendance for Archie’s special day, but the Queen and Prince Philip were absent as they had already planned to spend a week together at Sandringham.
Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorvodale were also in the official christening photo.
Harry himself was baptized in St. George’s Chapel, where he married Megan – December 21, 1984.
