Meghan and Harry’s daughter Lilibet missing from Royal line of succession SEVEN weeks after birth


Meghan and Harry’s daughter Lilibet is still missing from the Royal line of succession SEVEN weeks after she was born

  • Sussexes’ daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor is eighth in line to throne
  • Baby, who was born in June in the US, should be listed behind her brother Archie
  • But official website still lists Prince Andrew as eighth in line seven weeks later 

Meghan and Harry’s daughter Lilibet has yet to be added to the Royal Family‘s line of succession listed on the official website seven weeks after her birth.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 4 in the US and is eighth in line to the throne.

But the Royal Family’s website has yet to recognise Lilibet’s birth on the official line of succession.

The website, which helps keep the public up to date on matters relating to the House of Windsor, still lists Prince Andrew as eighth in line and Harry and Meghan’s daughter’s name is still absent.

Lilibet should be listed at eighth under her brother Archie whose name was added to the list just 15 days after he was born in 2019.

When her cousin Prince Louis was born, the second son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, his name was added to the list just 12 days after he was born.

Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas, who is 22nd in line to the throne, has been listed on the website since his birth in March. 

Lilibet was born in June and was named after the Queen’s childhood nickname while her middle name Diana was in tribute to Harry’s late mother. 

It comes in the aftermath of Harry and Meghan’s explosive two-hour CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In the interview, which aired in March, the couple expressed discontent at the fact that Archie would not be made a prince.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also said racism drove them out of Britain and claimed their son Archie was denied the title of prince because he is mixed race.

Speaking on the Royal Rota podcast on Friday, ITV Royal Editor Chris Ship suggested the House of Windsor was ‘making a point’.

He said: ‘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?’

Ship suggested the omission after such a lengthy period of time was ‘a little 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.’

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said the Royal Family website is ‘updated periodically’.

It comes amid claims the couple want Lilibet to receive a royal christening like her older brother Archie,

According to royal insiders, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s daughter Lilibet Diana could follow in the footsteps of older brother Archie and be christened in St George’s Chapel in Windsor with the Queen present. 

A source previously told the Daily Mail: ‘Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother Archie.

‘They are happy to wait until circumstances allow.’
