Prince Harry and Meghan's sense of entitlement over plans for Lilibet's christening "might seem breathtaking", a royal expert says.

It was claimed this week that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are desperate to have their daughter baptised at Windsor in front of the Queen.

The couple are said to have made a formal request to visit the Queen with three-month-old Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

Their second child is already older than her brother Archie was at his Windsor Castle christening in July 2019.

Writing for the Mirror, Royal author Robert Jobson said: "The couple, who have been very vocal in the media from their Californian mansion lately, have kept Lilibet away from prying eyes and guarded her privacy jealously.

"Now there is talk – as she is already older than her brother Archie was when he was christened – that they are pushing for a ceremony in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.

"To some, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's sense of entitlement might seem breathtaking."

Mr Jobson says reports of Harry and Meghan's hope for their daughter to get the full royal treatment for her baptism is baffling, given their recent comments.

He added: "They seem to be blissfully unaware of the mayhem their behaviour has caused the Queen, the monarchy, and the Royal Family.

"After all, their relationship with the family since they stepped down as working royals, and their willingness to blurt out damaging claims on TV, has left its deep scars.

"Some think the broken relationship between once-close brothers William and Harry is irreparable.

"That said, Harry, Meghan and their team of advisers across in the US seem oblivious to the damage they’ve caused – not least claiming the Firm is harbouring a racist and doesn't care about mental health."

Despite the rift between the Royal Family and the Sussexes, Harry is said to still be close with his grandmother, leaving the door open for a ceremony in the UK.

Mr Jobson continued: "His claims that his relationship with the Queen is hunky-dory may be wide of the mark. After all, her comment that “recollections may vary” certainly hit the spot, and a raw nerve as far as the Sussexes were concerned.

"Through all this Harry – perhaps wearing rose-tinted glasses or not wishing to acknowledge the harsh reality – seeking permission from her.

"Really? He seems to have got the wrong end of the stick.

"After all, Her Majesty put him firmly in his place over 'recollections' of him the first of his tell-all memoirs next year to use her nickname for his daughter."
