Royal fans spot crucial addition to Lilibet's name in christening announcement – and it's baffling everyone | The Sun

ROYAL fans have spotted a crucial addition to Lilibet's name in her christening announcement – and it's baffling everyone.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter Lilibet was christened at an intimate ceremony in California last week.

Around 25 guests gathered to celebrate the occasion on March 3 – and members of the Royal Family were invited.

The Sussexes allegedly asked King Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate to be there but they chose not to go.

Now royal fans have spotted a game-changing detail in Lilibet Diana's christening announcement.

The official line of succession, regulated by parliamentary statute, lists Harry and Meghan's daughter as Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.

Harry and Meghan's children became a prince and princess when the King acceded to the throne, but remain a plain Master and Miss on the Buckingham Palace website.

June said: "Didn't you lot fight a war so you don't have princes and princesses?"

Simon said: "If she's a princess, so am I."

Dom said: "Princess of where? California?"

Buckingham Palace said the royal website "will now be updated in due course" to reflect the titles.

At the time of the late Queen's death and the King's accession, a spokesman for the King pledged to update Archie and Lilibet's names on the site "as and when we get information".

It is understood Lili's title of princess and Archie's title as a prince will be used in formal settings, but not in everyday conversational use by the couple. 

Harry and Meghan are understood to be keen to not deny their children their birth-right, but to allow them the chance to decide for themselves when older whether to drop or keep using the titles. 

The christening took place privately at the Sussexes' home in California.

Rules set out by King George V in 1917 mean Archie and Lili, as the children of a son of a sovereign, are automatically a prince and a princess and also now have an HRH style if they choose to use it.

Meghan said in the couple's bombshell interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey that Archie was not given the title of prince because of his race.

Although he was a great-grandchild of the monarch, he was not a first-born son of a future king, so was not automatically a prince.
