A TV presenter has claimed that it is “perfectly understandable” why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may not bring over their five month-old daughter Lilibet to spend Christmas with the Royal Family.
Harry and Meghan’s youngest child Lilibet was born at the beginning of June earlier this year, but there is yet to be any public photos of the baby released or an announcement of her christening.
After her brother Archie received a royal ceremony in Windsor when he was only two months old, royal commentators have speculated that a similar celebration for Lilibet could be a chance to "draw the line" under the Sussex's supposed feud with 'The Firm'.
But, with no announcement of a christening and with festive season approaching, attention has turned towards whether the Sussexes will bring their young children over the Atlantic to see their family members at Sandringham for Christmas.
Responding to reports that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not plan on making the trip, TV presenter Matthew Wright told ITV’s ‘This Morning’ that he could understand why.
“There’s so much speculation; They’re coming over, they’re not coming over. They’re coming over to show the child, they don’t want to show the child,” he suggested.
Drawing on his own experience with young children – he became a dad for the first time to daughter Cassady in January 2019 – Matthew claimed flying would be difficult for the couple.
“I know that when we had Cassady, we wouldn’t contemplate getting on a long-haul flight for the first 18 months of her life,” he explained.
“Lilibet’s five months old, I think it’s perfectly understandable that they wouldn’t necessarily want to cross half the planet for Christmas.”
Although Harry returned for a quick visit to unveil a statue in honour of his late mother Princess Diana in July, Meghan has not met the royals in the UK since 2020.
Before the Royal Family settles down for Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham Palace, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla have embarked on a royal visit to the Middle East.
And, it has been reported that the couple might return with bottles of holy water, which could be used at Lilibet’s christening.
