Angela Levin: Lilibet Diana could be a ‘band-aid baby’ reuniting the Windsors

archie1

That sound you hear? The collective sighs of frustration from royal reporters. They’re realizing that they have little to no way to monetize and exploit the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children. Meghan and Harry get to say where, when and how their kids will be photographed and seen. There was no postpartum photocall with Lilibet Diana and the Windsors don’t even have any new photos of Archie! So the only thing the royal reporters can do is whine about how Harry and Meghan need to bring “band-aid baby” Lilibet Diana back to the UK so that she can bring the family together. Riiight.

Meghan and Prince Harry’s daughter Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor could “prove herself to be a ‘Band-Aid baby’” and provide a means for the Royal Family to come together and quash the existing feud, royal author Angela Levin said. The biographer believes it is not just the birth of Lili or the clear tribute to the Queen and Princess Diana that could bring closer the Royal Family. One upcoming event, the baby’s christening, could be crucial for the royals’ relationships.

In an op-ed for the Daily Telegraph, Ms Levin wrote: “A new arrival into the Royal Family is perhaps the next best chance for all sides to come together, meaning Lilibet Diana could unwittingly be the human sticking plaster that patches up the rift. When an innocent baby smiles, it’s hard not to smile back.

“But this may all depend on Harry seizing the opportunity to have his daughter christened in the UK. It could also provide the excuse Meghan needs to return to these shores, something that seems unlikely even with the unveiling of a Diana statue in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden on July 1. How significant it would be if a baby with the middle name Diana ushered in a new Royal era, one where both sides understood what the other needed and were united again.”

[From The Daily Express]

The royal reporters are in the bargaining stage of this melodrama. “Please come back, we need photos of Lili Diana, we’ll write glowing stories about how the family is reunited!” Except that “band-aid baby” is a horrible term for this. “Band-aid baby” refers to a couple who thinks having a baby will solve the problems within their relationship or marriage and bring them closer together. Levin knows what she’s doing there – she’s using the term to imply that the Sussex marriage is struggling and Harry is only there because Meghan got pregnant again. That’s really how these people think.

But yeah, this is new issue: will the Sussexes have Lili’s christening in the UK? My guess is no, they won’t. Harry and Meghan are probably still traumatized from what happened around Archie’s christening, especially since William was reportedly engorged with rage about how H&M didn’t publicly release the names of the godparents. Robert Lacey claimed William was engorged with rage about Archie’s birth as well. Why bring Lili Diana back to that toxic cesspool since it will literally be more of the same?

    BAPTIZE that child in AMERICA!!!!!

    Make that salty clan come to California if they want to see Lili. Ain’t nothing stopping them if they really want to.

    ETA: If they really believe that “we’re still family” line their pushing, then they can come to California on the Sussex’s terms and have a private family visit and a private christening.

    • Cecilia says:

      I really hope they baptize her in the US and that meghan buys a proper white christening gown for the occasion. This way little lili doesn’t have to wear that piss yellow dress archie was unfortunately christened in

      • Elizabeth Regina says:

        Not only that, she wouldn’t have to see KKhaty Keen cosplay one of her dead mother-in-law’s outfits out of spite.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      The Sussexes do not owe the UK anything. I agree the baptism or christening should happen in the US with the flouncisest of christening gowms. Within hours of the announcement of our angel Lili’s birth, she has been subjected to the vilest racist abuse. Devilla Levin who has never known a mother’s love, and who interacts with the most virulent of mugzits is in no position to speak of reconciliation of any form. Until they all do right by the Sissexes they will continue to suffer from Ms Celie’s curse.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      Thank you! Plus I feel like if you terrorize your son and brother not fleeing with his family you don’t get to dictate baptisms or put the 4 day old baby to work mending the family my God!

  2. Sofia says:

    Yeah I doubt they’ll baptise her in the UK but if they wanted to do it for the queen and queen alone, I can see them doing it tbh. But if the family wants to be at the baptism and it’s not in the UK, then they can be the ones to hop on a plane and come to the Sussexes (barring any travel restrictions that may very well still be there in 3 months or whenever they baptise her)

    And again, she’s 4 days old. Stop placing expectations on a baby who hasn’t even turned a week old yet.

    • Snuffles says:

      They could do it in September and celebrate Harry’s birthday at the same time.

    • GuestWho says:

      The queen couldn’t be bothered to go to Archie’s christening so…

      I’m just laughing at an image of W, K and Charles bickering about whose fault it is they have to fly to Cali on the long flight over from the UK.

      • Sofia says:

        She didn’t go to Louis’ either but if she says to the Sussexes “I’ll try and make it without my staff blocking me” or “We can all have a chat without staff and other royals” or whatever I think they wouldn’t reject it immediately.

      • GuestWho says:

        If she was going to be there just for them, it would be a nice gesture for them to come to the UK. But we are still in a pandemic and traveling with two babies would be nightmarish. It would be really great if they could just smuggle her out of the UK on a private jet for a week of visiting (never, ever happen).

      • Sofia says:

        Hence why I mentioned travelling restrictions.

      • Nina says:

        Isn’t that what Zoom is for. They can put a giant ass screen for the Queen to witness the christening. She has most probably already met Lili via Zoom.
        I bet at her age she couldn’t be bothered with most things the BM rats are screaming about. She is still dealing with her grief for Prince Phillip. Give an old lady some respect and peace for goodness sake.
        They don’t owe those vultures anything. No photos for them of the Montecito little ones. Because this is what their bleating is all about. And if they attempt to take paparazzi photos, sue them.

      • windyriver says:

        @GuestWho – Archie’s christening was on the Saturday of the July 4th weekend in the US, likely for the convenience of Meghan’s American friends (and mom?). Meanwhile, in the days preceding it, TQ was in Scotland for Holyrood Week. It would’ve been tight, but she might have been able to make it back; more likely, if she wanted to be there, she would have asked H&M to change the date. Since Charles and Camilla were going to be at the christening, I suspect TQ agreed H&M could keep the date, but she wouldn’t be there.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Nina, I agree. TQ is still in mourning, I would imagine. She was with PP for over seventy years and she deserves time to grieve and to recover from the turbulent last year.
        As for having a christening via Zoom, that would be an excellent idea as TQ could witness the ceremony.

      • Christine says:

        @windyriver, I am right there with you. Let’s be real, the queen is always meant to be queening, as she does. I would be shocked if she knew she hadn’t attended Archie’s christening.

  3. Case says:

    If Archie brought out the super racist side of the BRF, what exactly is different about Lili? That baby can’t undone the damage that has been done to the Sussexes. She’ll be raised in California in a loving home away from all the drama, end of.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      I am so glad she was born in America. The reaction to her name in the press should be the final nail on the coffin for not wanting to have anything to do with the UK.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        IMAO, the big problem in the UK is that the die-hard tabloid readers actually believe the Sussex haters fanfiction garbage that the Sussexes did not discuss Lili’s name with QEII before they announced.

      • Meghan says:

        My feeling is that Meghan or Harry really liked the name Lily/Lili and then Meghan said “wait what if we name her Lilibet but call her Lili?”

        I’ll never know if I am correct but that’s just how I feel.

    • Nina says:

      Photos. photos, that’s what brings in the money for those ba—tds.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes, and more opportunities for them to drag and smear them both. Harry and Meghan are perfectly happy in Montecito!! Suck on that Levin the Lemon!!

  4. swirlmamad says:

    Someone needs to slap the taste out of Angela Levin’s mouth. “Band-aid baby”???? The unmitigated gall.

    • Jane says:

      It’s a strange choice – we don’t say ‘band-aid’ in the UK, we say ‘plaster’.

      • Deputy Dot says:

        Exactly what I was thinking. We use the term ‘sticking plaster’. ‘Band Aid’ makes me think of the 1984 charity record and subsequent concert to help starving people in Ethiopia.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        They are writing for a Yank audience because that is where all the money is now.

      • JRT says:

        That 1984 concert would is called ‘Live Aid,’ which isn’t in any way similar to ‘Band Aid.’

      • HeatherC says:

        Band Aid was a super band, not a concert, that brought us that Christmas Song in 1984. “Do They Know Its Christmas” to raise money for anti-famine efforts in Ethiopia. It was a single. The success of Band Aid influenced USA for Africa and Live Aid.

        Live Aid was a huge benefit concert over 6 months later on July 1985, also organized by the same people behind the super group, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure

      • Courtney B says:

        In the post you can see she used the term sticky plaster in the Telegraph op Ed. The Express article about the op Ed used band aid. They’re both British papers so that’s weird.

      • Christine says:

        I am starting to feel apprehension about the future of the planet. Bob Geldof and Live Aid, look into it, if you don’t already know.

      • Nivz says:

        To be fair, she does use the term sticking plaster in the original excerpt from DM. The term Band Aid is from Kaiser’s comments following the excerpt.

    • Lizzie Bathory says:

      These f*cking maniacs. There is one “band-aid baby” in this generation & it did nothing for the heir’s marriage, so….

    • PrincessK says:

      I watched this Levin woman on Sky News this morning criticising first the fact that they chose the name Lilibet, and then she went on to trash Meghan’s book. I was so repulsed.

      Levin actually started her tirade by saying ‘I don’t want to be mean, but…’ 🙄

      I was also furious that the person who interviewed her did not question a single thing that came out of Levin’s mouth, it was just one long non stop attack on the Sussexes. She is beginning to rival Morgan in terms of pure vileness.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Anyone who starts their diatribe as, “I don’t want to sound mean, but…”, you know is going to be mean. She just needs to STFU with the rest of the rats and accept that Harry and Meghan owe nothing to the UK public, its rats and their supposed official royal reporters. They can all FO as far as Harry and Meghan are concerned.

        And when has Baldimort not been enraged? That’s his go-to emotion!! When I see him finally relaxed and not raging about the country, he will probably be dead.

  5. MsIam says:

    “Both sides understood what was needed and were united again.” Both sides meaning the Sussexes and the Rota Rats, lol. Is Angela’s middle name “gall” by any chance? She needs to become more familiar with the phrase “That ship has sailed” or maybe just “gtfoh” to be more succinct.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      “They’re realizing that they have little to no way to monetize and exploit the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children.”

      Angela and the rest of Rancid Royal Rat Reporters are now pushing the gossip that Meghan & Harry are trying to monetize Lili by holding out for a $5 million payout from Hello! or People Magazine for the first ‘exclusive” pictures of Lili just like Bard & Angelina did with Shiloh.

      Of course, the Rancid Royal Rat Reporters fail to mention that Bard & Angelia donate 100% of the proceeds they received to charity in Shiloh’s name.

      • A Guest says:

        If I were H&M, I’d release a picture of Harry, Meghan, Archie and Lily on Archwell.com for Father’s Day just as they did with the announcement of Lily’s birth. Heck throw the dogs and the chickens in there too.

      • LMR says:

        The term Royal Rat Reporters is an insult to rats.

      • swirlmamad says:

        @A Guest, I think that’s exactly what they’ll do, if they decide to release a photo of Lili at all. Drop it on Archewell.com so those suckas can’t make one cent off of it.

  6. Merricat says:

    They are not going to christen that baby in the U.K. They are done.

  7. Lightpurple says:

    People need to stop setting a four day old infant up for failing at a job that is not a job. If William wants to patch things up with his brother, it is his responsibility, not Lili’s. Same for Charles. If you want to see your grandchildren, pick up the phone and call. It isn’t a newborn’s responsibility to call anyone or heal anything. Her job right now is to drink, pee, poop, react to sights and sounds around her, sleep a lot, and grow.

  8. MF1 says:

    The story that William was enraged when Harry didn’t release the names of Archie’s godparents never made any sense to me. I can’t think of a reason why William would care about that.

    • Cecilia says:

      He was engorged with rage because his friends in the media were angry that the sussexes kept the godparents a secret. Willy has to appease his friends in the media after all, or they will start spilling the beans on him

      • Elizabeth Regina says:

        Spot on. Willileaks was probably under pressure from the press to throw them a bone.

    • Becks1 says:

      Lacey presented it as something about William thinking the godparents need to be “public” since they’re supposed to be publicly offering their support for their upbringing of the child or something. It was one of those things though where you could kind of see Lacey’s eyes rolling as you read it. The church knows who the godparents are, the press does not need to know.

      But I think the real reason for his anger was bc he thought that was a bone he could throw to the press. When he couldn’t, he gave them the private jet scandal (and his thriftiness with theF FlyBe plane in contrast.)

      • Sofia says:

        Have any of George, Charlotte and Louis’ godparents offered any of this public support that is supposedly William’s reasoning? Because I don’t think they have. Plus I imagine if any of them spoke about the royals without telling the royals they’ll be speaking, they would be iced out of the circle – at least that’s what I’ve heard/read in forums/articles.

        I mean can any of you name all of the kids’ godparents? Does the public actually care besides the media?

      • Becks1 says:

        @Sofia I know, it’s stupid.

        And I can name some of the godparents but I get confused who is the godparent for which child – like Zara is a godmother to Charlotte, I think, but could be wrong – but its only bc I google it a lot whenever we’re discussing godparents on here, lol.

      • equality says:

        @Sofia For anybody picked by W&K, nobody cares. For those picked by H&M, the media cares so that they can pick apart the choices and explain why they were bad choices. I can see why H&M wanted to protect the godparents from the media nonsense.

      • Sofia says:

        @Becks1 I know that Guy Pelly is one of Louis’ (or am I confusing him with someone else?) and I only know that because I remember some Cambridges fans complaining he became a godparent. Why? I don’t know but apparently he’s shady. I know that one of George’s is the Duke of Westminster. That’s it lol. I don’t know any of Charlotte’s (so today I learned Zara is one).

        @Equality: oh I know the media would love to know but my point was that the general public doesn’t and doesn’t care. They won’t even remember who the godparents are even if they were told.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Also, the powers-that-beat at The Daily Fail were convinced that Oprah and/or Michelle & Barrack were God-Parents. The Daily Fail wanted to post a story at the Mail Online (and they posted a sorta of version on it) announcing Oprah & Obamas as God-Parents which would generate 10k+ comments and feed red meat to their bas readership.

      • JT says:

        At the time, one of the RRs said they were promised access to the Sussexes, especially Meghan. I guess they wanted their one on one chat with her like the rest of the royals do. H&M declining to present Archie was just angering them more because they had the expectation that it would happen. I’m betting William was the one who made all of these promises that he couldn’t deliver on, hence his incandescence.

      • QwietStorm says:

        I agree with this. Can you visualize what would happen if those names were published? Every tabloid would have their investigators digging up every sort of dirty detail they could find on those people so as to write numerous trouble making articles. Even just neutral details would be dirtied up by those morons. Then they would have a few months’ worth of material they could use. And maybe those articles would spawn more. When the names stayed private, the tabloids lost out on those headlines and that revenue. So William was probably angry that he couldn’t feed his wolf pack any juicy leads. It does makes one wonder what they have on him.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @QwietStorm – Norfolk Rose gardening and laundering with a Lady London Lawyer.

      • windyriver says:

        @JT – I’m pretty sure Meghan told Oprah they were never asked (by the Firm) to do a presentation for Archie. If asked, maybe they would have declined, but sounds like that was never even on the table.

    • Amy Bee says:

      @MF1: He would be angry that he was unable to leak the names to the press.

  9. Becks1 says:

    My guess is they will have the baptism in the US and invite the royals and we’ll see who shows up. It’s a lot easier for Will and Kate to travel to CA, even with all three kids, then it will be for H&M to travel to the UK with their two kids, considering Lili isn’t even a week old yet….

    I don’t think they feel the need to schedule a baptism that the queen can attend, she didn’t attend Archie’s, and I don’t think she attended Louis’ either. But in a post pandemic world maybe she would zoom in, lol.

    I could also see them baptizing her here and then IF they wanted to, having a private blessing ceremony or something the first time she’s in the UK, and honestly at this point we have no idea when that will be.

    Anyway as to whether she is going to heal the rifts and bring peace and healing to the Windsor clan? I mean…..again….she’s not even a week old. If the royal family wants to reach out over the birth, I thin H&M would accept that, but they’re not going to let her baptism or anything else be used as a way for them to score PR points.

    • Snuffles says:

      Royals most likely to come would be Eugenie and Jack.

      • Becks1 says:

        I feel like in general Eugenie and Jack will come to california the most out of the royals – especially with August and Lili being so close in age (and Archie not that much older) – talk about a nice vacation on a semi-regular basis – stay in your cousin’s gorgeous mansion with the pool and sauna and movie theater and tennis court, explore a part of the world you haven’t really visited that much, heck visit the Clooneys while you’re at it. Go to the beach, hike some trails, have some wine. Seems like a good deal to me.

    • Nic919 says:

      It takes longer to fly to Mustique than it does LA so the Cambridges really could fly there for the christening. Whether they want to is another story.

  10. Elizabeth Kerri Mahon says:

    Isn’t this the same witch who said on television, like yesterday, that calling their daughter Lilibet was an insult to the Queen? But somehow, she’s changed her tune and decided that this baby is going to save Harry’s relationship with his brother? If William wants to repair his brotherly bond, he can apologize to Harry and Meghan for throwing Meghan under the bus constantly to make his future Keen Queen look good.

  11. Sid says:

    Please forgive me but f*ck this witch! She tweeted a lie that Meghan announced she was due on Philip’s birthday and riled up her nasty followers to post the worst replies all based on bs. These fake reporters are the worst humans.

    • equality says:

      There are some truly ignorant people in the world. Like Meghan was supposed to be in control of her due date. Even doctors can’t pinpoint that finely. And if she had scheduled a c-section, the doctor has more input on that also by his schedule and calculations.

  12. Truthiness says:

    The Brit Media is LUSTING for photos, photos that would make BANK for them, but they need them in the UK to do it though. They want the Sussexes to give them stories and big juicy photo ops. It is killing them that they get embargoed out of stories, totally scooped by others, and no photos they can own and use. The Sussexes are not giving them photos for their cockamamie stories and it is hilarious!

    • ABritGuest says:

      Remember when they announced this pregnancy, Penny Junor said they might get nice press if they come to U.K. & do some nice photos with the babies. Then Oprah happened 🤣😬. The royal press are in a position they’ve never been in in modern times and it’s killing them

      The English press are being soo nasty about Lili even saying that her name will make her entitled (aka uppity) & then there’s things like Kay’s article hanging the future of the monarchy on her & nasty Levin slyly referring to her as a band aid baby. As I said yesterday if Harry had a hard time being thrown under the bus as a spare the press seems nuclear over the kids – Harry& Meghan daring to sue them, winning, calling them bigoted on Oprah & lack of access to profit is making them beyond unhinged

      If I was Harry I’d demand dear granny to actually SHOW they are beloved members of her family with apologies & show of support before my kids would step a foot in England but that’s just me.

      • Truthiness says:

        Even if, by some miracle, the family patched things up, the British media would find a hundred ways to go toxic. They are making money stoking the fires now. The royal pedophile gets a break every day this Sussex bashing goes on. No wonder he was warm to Harry at the funeral, Harry is saving his behind from public outcry.

      • 809Matriarch says:

        And Harry basically low key called them would be assassins too.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      “The Brit Media is LUSTING for photos, photos that would make BANK for them, but they need them in the UK to do it though.”

      The British Tabloid Media, especially The Daily Fail and The Scum, are still spitting nails and as mad as f&*K that the New York Post-Page6 got the pap shot of Meghan & Archie and they did not.

  13. Smices says:

    “The excuse Meghan needs” to come back to the UK? Why would she need an excuse. She’s free to fly there whenever she pleases. I doubt she has any desire to given all the bad memories and hateful people over there.

    I’m sure if the Queen wants to attend the christening they’ll have it there but I doubt it will be this year. Probably next year when they’re in Europe for Invictus. They can just pop over. I can see them staying on that side of the pond and tending to their UK charities, then doing the jubilee thing and then heading back to the US.

  14. Over it says:

    Angela evil needs some holy water. Princess montecito just wants to enjoy being a baby and getting hugs and kisses from her mummy and daddy and brother and grandma Doria. The rage- aholics in the uk can come to Cali and grovel for forgiveness if they want it. Why should Harry and Meghan bend over backwards for these racist abusers.

  15. Julie says:

    The only time I see Harry returning to the UK is when the Queen dies.

  16. MangoAngelesque says:

    I could see them having the christening back in the UK if his grandmother was going to attend…Harry’s very sentimental that way. I have no idea about christening protocols, though, and whether there’s any particular time frame they’re supposed to be done in. But if it’s something that could be put off until late summer (August/September), then it could be a coming toss whether between UK and US.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @MangoAngelesque – I agree with you; If QEII commits to attend then the christening will be in the UK.

  17. Rai says:

    The game these so called experts run… “to make us happy, you need to subject an infant to a super long flight during a pandemic for an hour long ceremony. Or else!”

    The grift is strong with Ms Angela

  18. Ray says:

    Someone from England please break this down for me, a new born baby is a “human sticking plaster”. I am confused.
    Also, I thought Duchess C, the future, future Queen was the peacemaker and the savior of the Crown. Why take the title away from her now? Lili is not even a princess. Please enlighten me on this new narrative. Also, is Meghan’s book The Bench a real failure in the UK?

    • Jais says:

      Well if Kate is such a peacemaker then I’m sure she will visit California to see her new niece and nephew….can really kind of see her wanting to do that for all the positive press. The jewel of the crown is so gracious to visit and go all the way to California. Plus the pictures and SoCal cosplay! I’m just really not sure she would be invited? If I was Meghan I wouldn’t want to but then it becomes rude on their part if they don’t invite. Lol I’m just laughing bc if they ever did invite to be polite and expected them to not actually show up watch Kate show up for the peacemaker storyline and the photos. Maybe William will be too busy in Scotland so just her and the kids. Lol sorry just went on a very speculative tangent.

    • MonicaQ says:

      What we call a “Band-aid” baby here in the US is sometimes called a “plaster” baby in the UK.

  19. Duchess of Hazard says:

    I think for the RBF and the rota, it probably depends on how dark Lili is, tbh.

  20. Rita says:

    Harry and Meghan will have to return to the UK to christen Lili the monarchy will not transport the christening gown across the pond as all descendents of the royal family are required to wear that gown for their christening Charles and William will not travel to the US for any christening therefore ensuring Harry returns to the UK before the end of the year if he wants his daughter christen in the royal tradition.

    • Bean says:

      ‘Required’? I don’t think that’s true.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      A requirement and tradition are 2 different things. The original christening gown was retired in 2004. Since 2008, a replica has been worn……so, technically the same dress has not been worn by all descendants.

      H & M will decide what’s best for their family. I personally wouldn’t want Will or Kate anywhere near H & M’s safe haven.

      The optics of Windsor’s travelling to California for Lili’s christening would be a brilliant PR stroke for them..given recent and forthcoming Guardian stories. And, everything else.

    • Sid says:

      In all the time I’ve been observing this circus sideshow that calls itself the British Royal Family, I never once heard it was a requirement to wear that gown. As Agreatreckoning said, tradition and requirement aren’t the same.

      I am amazed at all the requirements and protocols that magically appeared after Meghan entered the scene…

  21. equality says:

    Poor top CEO lost her title of head peacemaker to a newborn. Time for Uncle Gary to speak out about how much better at peacemaking Kate is than a baby.

  22. Catherine says:

    I think it’s possible she’ll be baptized in the UK but it will not be an announced publicized event. Just like we found out about the birth after the fact. We’ll find out about the christening after the fact. They certainly won’t have it be used as opportunity for the media to claim it represents reconciliation. They could have let the palace announce the pregnancy and the birth they didn’t. I think they are drawing a hard with regard to events with their children. It will be a small private event. I don’t think they will include Charles or William if they can’t be trusted to not leak it before hand. I also don’t think they will be in a rush to have a christening. The timing previously was something that was determined by BRF/BM pressure to get photos. If I recall correctly both of Zara’s kids weren’t christened until almost a year after they were born and we didn’t know about it until after it happened. Also. There is always screaming about the Sussexes overshadowing. If they christen Lili before Eugenie or Zara have their kids christened people will turn that into a controversy. And Beatrice is pregnant so of course the christening can’t occur anytime near her due date or that will be a controversy. So as I said I think they will take their time and the Christening whether in the UK or the US will be not be a public event.

    • Snuffles says:

      They would not be able to set foot in the UK without the press being tipped off.

      • Catherine says:

        I’m not suggesting they would travel to the UK secretly to christen the baby. I think they plan to return to the UK for work with their charities. Harry has mentioned several times that they would have returned to the UK if not for the pandemic. So if they planned to spend any extended time there. The christening could take place while they were there working.

    • Nina says:

      Nobody is going to travel to a covid hotspot with an unvaccinated baby.

  23. L84Tea says:

    Bandaid baby? I think Angela Levin got tongue-tied and meant to say LOUIE, not Lili.

  24. GM says:

    I know many here might disagree, but I expect (covid permitting) that Harry, Meghan, Archie, and Lili will travel to the UK for Lili’s christening. It might not be for a while though. I just think that Harry is at his core a decent human being, and he would want his grandmother to be able to meet his new daughter… no matter what has transpired with other members of the family.

    • Snuffles says:

      I think Harry will try to visit I just don’t think it will be for the christening. I’m more inclined to think he will suck it up and come for Christmas.

      • Catherine says:

        You think Harry will visit the UK for Christmas without his wife and Child?!?!

      • Snuffles says:

        No, I think if Meghan is up for it, they would bring the kids to visit the Queen over the holidays.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        Or they could do both at the same time. Have her christening at Christmas in the U.K.

      • Tessa says:

        He needs to come for Christmas with his entire family. Otherwise, he would be subject to the “peacemaker” Kate grinning at him.

    • QwietStorm says:

      If Harry does that to please his grandmother the tabloids will write a slew of articles about how unfair that is to Megan’s father. And it snowballs from there.

      Anyway, isn’t it about time for Tom to drop another comment or interview about the new granddaughter?

      • Snuffles says:

        Why? Meghan is on good terms with the Queen. Not with her father. Hasn’t been for years.

      • QwietStorm says:

        @Suffles: Because they’ve written so many of those articles before. The tabloids are aware that the Sussexes are on good terms with the queen and on the outs with Tom, and why. But they’ve always written how awful Meghan treats her father for staying estranged from him. They have written terribly negative, very insulting things on the
        matter. And now there’s a new baby and Tom has never seen the first. This will just provide a new opportunity for more meanness. Why? Well, why does a dog lick himself? Because it feels good and he can away with it. Same principle.

      New era! New era!

      Theres this wonderful app called zoom (previously consigned to the world of business & academia etc) discovered by the rest of the world in 2019.

      Trust, betty has already seen her new namesake. Via zoom.

      My fervent hope is tht H pushes for a postponement of the statue unveiling to 2022 so tht all speculation abt the Sussexes visiting England any time this yr can shrivel up & die….just like the RotaRats.

      PS: correct me if I’m wrong but babies in the RF tradition dont travel before theyre christened, rt? I hope so……cos tht wd mean little Princess Lili will definitely be christened in Cali and my guess is by around her 4-month birthday……so, by Oct.

      Fingers crossed!

  25. Eurydice says:

    This is a royal expert wet dream. H&M bring their family to the UK for the Diana unveiling and baptize Lilibet at the same time – OMG, can you imagine the media circus? The experts would be dining out on this for months.

  26. Amy Bee says:

    If the family had an issue with Archie, why does Angela believe that the family will be welcoming to Lili? She has the same mother as Archie. Furthermore, she’s done an 180 on the baby, as yesterday she was fuming about her name and that it was insult to the Queen. I suspect the fact that the Queen is close to Harry and Meghan has caused these royal commentator to change their narrative.

    I think the Christening is going to be in the US. There’s no reason for the family to go to the UK for the christening, there are Anglican churches in the US. I think Harry and Meghan will pop in to the UK to see the Queen on their way home from the Invictus Games next year.

    • 809Matriarch says:

      I think it would be lovely if they had an Anglican christening here in the UK and the preacher from the wedding officiated.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Amy Bee, I think they’ll see the Queen next Spring, too. Isn’t her bday in April? I have no idea if they’ll be there for the jubilee, but I do hope they never take those kids to the UK anytime soon (and possibly even later). They way they showed how racist they were to Meghan and then when Archie was born, I think keeping them away from UK is the safe thing to do. I also realize that it’s H&M’s decision.

  27. Silent Star says:

    I hope one day when Archie and Lili are young adults, they have a chance to confront these lowlife royal “journalists” and make them answer for all the horrible things they said about them as babies.

    • Carmen-JamRock says:

      LOL
      Hooefully theyll all be gone bk to their maker by then……the one tht has horns snd carries a scythe.

  28. TheOriginalMia says:

    Angela Levin is a crone. An old, crusty, hard-pressed, racist crone. Calling Lili a band-aid baby, knowing damn well how that term means. She’s a nasty bit of work. If a baby was going to reunite that family, Archie was right there for the Windsors to make amends and they did nothing of the sort. Instead, the abuse increased until the Sussexes fled to the States for their emotional well-being.

    As for the christening, they won’t return for that. They can find a church of their own to baptize Lili in, if they choose to. It’s not about the Queen. She hasn’t attended a christening in years. The BM would love for the Sussexes to return to the UK so they can monetize everything surrounding it. That’s why Harry & Meghan won’t do it. If Lili’s grandfather wants to see her or be present at her baptismal, he can fly his ass over for it.

  29. teecee says:

    Is it certain that Lili will be christened? She doesn’t have to be, is what I’m saying. M&H don’t have to participate in all of the expected pageantry any more.

    • Eurydice says:

      A christening doesn’t have to be pageantry – you just go to the church and get it done.

    • Lionel says:

      I was wondering that too. Are Harry and Megan even churchgoers on their own? Not that it matters one bit if either has a personal relationship with organized religion, just that if they don’t there’s no real point in having a christening/baptism. Lots of more-or-less agnostic people do it bc it’s important to their families, but in this case… 🤷‍♀️

    • Tessa says:

      Archie got Christened. So Lili will also. But probably not in the UK.

  30. L4frimaire says:

    The press needs to leave them alone. They don’t need to go anywhere with their kids right now and it’s not their kids job to fix anything. The laziness and arrogance is what jumps out, as if the Sussexes need to do the labor to carry this family. They can christen the baby right there in California, and don’t need to be taking those unvaccinated babies on international flights.

  31. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    HUMAN STICKING PLASTER???????
    The actual f*** is wrong with this woman?????

  32. teehee says:

    How DEMEANING

    But while on it- if *anyone* has Bandaid babies— (ugh) its Waity Katey.

  33. Rapunzel says:

    Lol… this dusty Saltine is losing it. Brittle ass crackers gonna crack, I guess. It’s just physics.

  34. LMR says:

    Ugh – Angela Levin. Is there a more miserable creature on this earth?
    The band-aid really needs to go over her mouth, followed by some FlexSeal

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      Flex seal doesn’t work. We need a roll of duct tape.

      • Gail says:

        Duct tape Queen here…what colour would you prefer? Red & white for St. George maybe? or White & black (like a cow) symbolizing the cow she is?
        I have the standard grey, plain white… (I love me some duct tape!).
        State your preference and I got you covered!!

  35. Alexandria says:

    Stupid people really don’t know they’re stupid.

  36. Jay says:

    Yeah….no. “Band aid baby” is a term I have only heard used by people who do not have kids, and have no idea about the incredible stress, mental, physical, and emotional, that a new baby brings. A distraction? Maybe. A solution? Nope.

    I doubt this Levin lady is serious, I think she’s just trying to set up Sussexes for blame when the royal family doesn’t somehow magically drop it’s antagonism, racism, and resentment in the face of a cute newborn.

    If anything, Lili’s arrival might up the ante with the Cambridges, as their “nice family” image is about all they have going for them.

    • This 💯 percent. If William and Kate, took their children to California to visit, it would be a huge deal. Even if his older brother wanted to visit, based off details Harry’s shared already, I imagine it would be discouraged by ‘men in grey’ . The firm. The sad look on Kate’s face. Happy H& M got away.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        MyMothersBaby, I can’t see W&K going to CA for a christening or anything else. Wouldn’t that be some kind of sign that W&K were conceding something to H&M? I wouldn’t have W&K anywhere near my kids or home, but not my decision.

  37. Melly says:

    Julie Burchill has been fired from The Telegraph following her racist tweets about baby Lili. Ha!

  38. MA says:

    Kind of related but loving how iconic Lilibet Diana is already and the most common way she’s being referred to is Lili Diana, even in the trash tabloids. The name just flows so well. Her actual title Lady Lili Diana is so delicate and feminine. Princess Lili Diana will make heads explode.

    • Sid says:

      And MA, I am of the belief that she will have that princess title officially once Charles ascends, as will her brother get the prince title. Changing the current convention in order to block male line non-heir grandkids from being HRH prince/ss means that any kids Louis might have would be blocked from it too. You can’t convince me William and Kate would be okay with that. And even Charles knows that issuing letters patent saying that only the Sussex children are specifically blocked is a third rail even he will not want to touch.

  39. SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

    Massive Wicked Stepmother vibes on this. Bring us this tiny innocent child, that we may sacrifi-, I mean bully and racially ab-, no, wait, that she may magically heal this fractured kingdom.

  40. RoyalBlue says:

    A baby is not going to bring the family together and the A lady needs to stop peddling this false narrative. The only thing that will bring that family together is telling the truth. Truth and then Reconcilliation. Harry and Meghan have spoken their truth. Your move Cain.

  41. Liz version 700 says:

    Honestly, Harry seems like he has reached the stage where he will put up with his brother for weddings and funerals, but he will never seek him out again. Absolutely baptize the baby here and rebaptise Archie in a US church and then cuddle with the babies while the Salty RR implode

  42. Athena says:

    The tradition is for all royal children to be christened in that gown. Angela Kelly should be tasked with taking the christening gown to Santa Barbara and back.

  43. Christine says:

    FFS, they are a young family with a newborn. Planes fly in both directions, and I don’t see any of them meandering across to the pond, to visit Harry and Meghan, not one. It’s a pandemic, and Harry and Meghan are taking it seriously. Both the press and royal family wrote their own obits when they chased them out of England.

  44. Athena says:

    I do mean Angela Kelly the Queen’s dresser who wanted to deny Meghan access to royal jewels

  45. Izzy says:

    It is just beyond revolting. These ratchet rota are seriously trying to put the responsibility for *checks notes* fixing the family’s racism on a BABY’s shoulders.

  46. jferber says:

    I remember the photo of Meghan and Harry lying in the grass, her noticeably pregnant and he stroking her hair. The Brits got a podiatrist (I think a chiropodist in England) to say Harry’s feet were deformed. I mean, WTF?

  47. I also remember a photo of Megan and Harry lying in the grass, she is noticeably pregnant, and he strokes her hair. Just then a photo of Harry came out from reporters

  48. worktime says:

    I also remember a photo of Megan and Harry lying in the grass, she is noticeably pregnant, and he strokes her hair.

  49. Marivic says:

    The racist British media will be the ultimate destroyer of the British monarchy. Commonwealth countries will turn against the monarchy and will assert their independence from the Crown. Monarchy will be gone. Thanks to these rota clowns.
