A royal biographer has claimed that Prince Harry is putting the Queen in a ‘difficult position’ by hoping to attend the christening of his daughter Lillibet.
According to royal insiders, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter Lilibet Diana could follow in older brother Archie’s footsteps and be christened at St George’s Chapel in Windsor – alongside the Queen.
