The daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was christened at the couple's home in California. Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday. She was born to Prince Harry and Meghan in June 2021.
It's the first time she's been called a princess in public, and it confirms that Harry and Meghan will give their children royal titles. A representative for the couple said that members of the Royal Family had been invited to the christening.

A source says that Meghan, 41, and Harry, 38, invited King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, but they didn't show up. After Queen Elizabeth died last September, their grandfather became monarch. Under rules set up by King George V in 1917, Archie, 3, and Lilibet were given the titles of prince and princess.
Even though Lilibet wasn't born a princess because she wasn't the monarch's granddaughter, she became one when King Charles took the throne. With this announcement, Lilibet's title of princess is being used for the first time in public. She should get it because she is a grandson of the monarch through her father's side.
The fact that Meghan and Harry's spokesperson called the baby "Princess Lilibet" shows that the couple will, at least in formal situations, call their children Prince and Princess. According to a Letters Patent signed by Harry's great-great-grandfather George V in 1917, all grandchildren of a monarch are entitled to the title "Prince" or "Princess."
When Charles took the throne in September, the changes for Archie and Lilibet were not made public, and the palace website did not change the order of succession, even though Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis were given new titles.
Later that month, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson told Buzzfeed News that “the focus now is on mourning the queen, and [the issue of Archie and Lilibet’s titles] is something for further down the line.”
Doria Ragland, the Duchess's mother, Tyler Perry, Lilibet's godfather, and a godmother who wasn't named were among the 20 to 30 guests. Perry, who is a music producer, let the Sussexes live in his home in Los Angeles when they first moved from Canada to California, even though he had never met them before.
He said in a Netflix documentary about the couple that he agreed to be a godfather only if he didn't have to go to the UK for a christening.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan and Harry Ddaughter, Princess Lilibet christened in California. Lilibet wasn't born a princess because she wasn't the monarch's grandchild. She got the right to use the title, though, when her grandfather became King Charles III in line with rules set up by King George V in 1917.
The Sussexes' announcement on Wednesday was the first time that Lilibet was called a princess in public. Under the rules from 1917, Lilibet and her brother Archie can both use HRH, which stands for "His or Her Royal Highness," and the prince and princess titles if they want to.
Buckingham Palace did not make a formal statement about Lilibet's christening, but it was thought that the royal family's website would be updated to include the children's new names.
