Senior royals are unlikely to attend the christening of Lilibet if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opt to hold the ceremony in the US, a royal expert claims.

The decision would make a break in tradition and make Lilibet the first of the Queen's grandchildren or great-grandchildren not to receive a royal baptism within the church of England.

she told the sun that if lilibet is christening in the united states, "maybe" harry's standing in the line of succession.

she added : "the only reason [ it wouldn't be held in the uk ] would be if meghan didn't want to come over here with the baby.

Their schedules are organised six months in advance."

If she is baptised in California, Lilibet would not automatically be considered a member of the Church of England, unless she came to Britain and joined a CofE congregation.

Princess Eugenie would be an "obvious" choice for Lilibet's godmother, as the 31-year-old has remained close to the Sussexes and recently lent her support to Meghan's 40X40 Archewell mentorship programme.

Zara or Mike Tindall are also possible godparent choices, Ingrid said, adding that Lilibet would likely have American godparents as Meghan has "obviously got lots and lots of American friends".

When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, she wore a Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy gown for the Windsor Castle ceremony.

If they do decide to stay in America, they may not publicly announce the date or details about the ceremony.

The couple's Archewell website highlighted their latest business venture, linking to the New York Times' story which featured the headline 'Harry and Meghan Get into Finance' The Queen's grandson Harry and former Suits star Meghan acknowledged that not everyone could afford to invest money.

'So much so, in fact, that they became investors in Ethic earlier this year and have investments managed by Ethic as well.

The couple's two-year-old son Archie and three month-old daughter Lilibet remain at home in California.

De Blasio's wife Chirlane McCray, 66, and the mayoral couple's son Dante, 24, were also there to welcome the royal couple, who are visiting from their home in Montecito, California.

Meghan Markle's estranged brother, Thomas Markle, has hit out at the Duchess of Sussex ahead of his Big Brother VIP appearance.

Before the cameras have even started rolling, Thomas Jnr has had plenty to say about his royal sister.

And according to Thomas, it's only a matter of time before Prince Harry gets the boot.

"Harry's on the chopping block next."

The couple say they were introduced to Ethic by friends. The investment firm has a $1.3billion fund and only invests in firms it deems fair and green

"I told Prince Harry,' I think she's going to ruin your life '- she ’ s very shallow," the Big Brother VIP star claimed.

He has also continued to attack the Duchess of Sussex in the press, branding her "phony", "a bully" and a "jaded, conceited woman".

Big Brother will be shown on Channel Seven, although UK viewers will need a VPN to watch it.

"We can't wait for Australia to meet this year ’ s amazing collection of housemates and to start discovering the many surprises and twists we have built into the show."
