Meghan and Harry's daughter Lilibet is STILL missing from Royal Family's line of succession

MEGHAN and Harry’s daughter Lilibet is missing from the Royal Family official website’s line of succession — seven weeks after she was born.

The omission of the tot, who is eighth in line behind brother Archie, is sure to anger the Sussexes.


Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas has been listed since his birth in March.

Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, have previously moaned to chatshow host Oprah Winfrey that Archie had not been made a prince.

Lilibet was born in the US on June 4 and has no HRH title but automatically joins the line of succession.

When Kate and William’s son Louis was born in 2018, the website included him 12 days later.

And when Lilibet’s big brother Archie was born a year later, the site was changed after 15 days.

Princess Eugenie’s son August was placed in the line of succession, 61 days after he was born in February.

Chris Ship, ITV Royal Editor, told Royal Rota podcast yesterday: “You have got to ask what has taken them so long.

“All they have got to do is hit the paragraph button and put in a different number.

“They must have done it before. They did it for Archie. Clearly they did it for Louis when he was born.

“And they have done it for some of the other children like August that have been born as well.

“So where's Lilibet? I can forgive them a week or two but a month?

“Is this them being a little bit petulant? Is it them saying, ‘We will get around to it when ready?’ It does feel like to me, maybe, they are making a point.”

Prince Charles is believed to want a “slimmed-down” monarchy when he takes the Crown.

Lilibet has yet to be christened amid claims Harry wants the ceremony to be held at Windsor Castle with the Queen present.

No date has been revealed for any service in the UK or US.

I can forgive them a week or two but a month? Is this them being a little bit petulant?

Harry and Meghan have angered the royals after it was claimed the Queen was not asked about their daughter’s name.

Lilibet has been Her Maj’s nickname among family since her childhood.

Some insiders claim the row, plus Harry announcing shock plans for a memoir, has scuppered a Windsor christening.

Penny Junor, Harry’s biographer, said: “A christening should be a lovely, happy event with people pleased to see each other.

“If the relationship is as frosty as it is for the foreseeable future then I can’t see it being that type of affair.”

Some believe Meghan could hold the christening in the US and use Bishop Michael Curry, who gave a sermon at their wedding.

Meghan has not returned to Britain since March last year and the last of Harry’s possessions were removed from their former home, Frogmore Cottage, Windsor and put in storage this month.

Traditionally, royals are baptised within four months of birth.

A senior Anglican church figure told The Sun on Sunday: “It is not a totally clear area of canon law.

“The requirements for acceding to the throne do not include baptism, but it would be normal to be baptised. No problems arise from Lilibet being American.”



Archie was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury at St George’s Chapel in 2019, exactly two months after his birth.

Buckingham Palace would not comment on Lilibet’s christening.

A spokesman said the Royal Family website is “updated periodically”.
