Lilibet’s godfather, American actor Perry, allegedly flew to Montecito, Los Angeles, from Atlanta for the christening with a 10-person gospel choir.

The group performed Oh Happy Day and This Little Light of Mine, which was also played at Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018


Traditionally, a royal christening is a small, family affair held in the historic chapels of Buckingham Palace or Windsor.

Archie was christened at eight weeks old in a quiet, private ceremony in front of about 25 guests at Windsor Castle on July 6, 2019. 

Harry’s own christening was held at St George’s Chapel – where he married Meghan – on December 21, 1984. 

However, Libibets’s ceremony took place in the Sussexes £12million LA home.


Like many young royals before him, including his cousins George, Charlotte, and Louis, he wore a special royal gown.

Unless flown over especially, Lilibet is unlikely to have worn the same outfit.


Around 25 guests gathered to celebrate the occasion on March 3 – and members of the Royal Family were invited but chose not to go, PEOPLE reports.

The Sussexes allegedly asked King Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate to be there but they declined the offer, according to a source.

Instead, the duke and duchess were joined by three-year-old son Archie, Meghan‘s mum Doria Ragland, Lili‘s godfather Tyler Perry and between 20 and 30 close friends.

Doria, Charles, Camilla, William and Kate were all in attendance at Archie’s special day, but the Queen and Prince Philip were absent, having already made plans to spend the week together at Sandringham.

Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale were also in the official christening photo.
