Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are all set to meet Queen Elizabeth for the christening ceremony of their daughter, Lilibet, at Windsor.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's meeting with the monarch will be in private, with the latter ensuring there are no officials involved.

Speaking to Palace Confidential, royal expert Rebecca English said, "Meeting the family is very different from a summit, which we saw at Sandringham not that long ago, which is a kind of suggestion that they'll be thrashing out family issues.

"I'm told if they do come and visit, it'll be in a private capacity and very much will remain in that vein."

When asked how Buckingham Palace are preparing for such a meeting, English revealed, "I've spoken to people about that this week, they've stressed to me that if and when it happens, it will very much be a private, family get-together.

"Nonetheless, I think everyone recognises it'll be a pretty awkward one given what's happened over the last couple of years, but there's certainly no officials getting involved and I think they know that's something that would really wind Harry and Meghan up if they were to do so," she concluded.
