The royal family doesn’t let go of things very easily.

This is evidenced by the fact that it’s the year 2023, and they still have castles and royal titles and all that crap.

But as much as these people cling to their antiquated customs and traditions, it’s possible that they hold onto their grudges with an even tighter death grip.

And of course, their most cherished grudge of all is the one that they hold against Meghan Markle.

Charles and company never pass up an opportunity to publicly express their disapproval of the Duchess of Sussex, even if doing so means missing a major moment in the life of a young relative.

Case in point, according to a new report from People magazine, no one in Harry’s family was in attendance at Princess Lilibet’s christening last Friday.

“I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3 by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor,” a rep for Harry and Meghan cofirmed.

The rep revealed that Tyler Perry is now Lilibet’s godfather.

Rather tellingly, however, the source did not comment on the royals’ absence at the christening.

Of course, that’s the sort of silence that speaks volumes in a situation like this.

Of all the royal family’s recent displays of animosity toward Harry and Meghan, this one was surely among the most painful.

That’s because Harry has spoken at length about his desire for his children to have close relationships with their aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

“I’ve said before that I’ve wanted a family, not an institution—so of course, I would love nothing more than for our children to have relationships with members of my family, and they do with some, which brings me great joy,” Harry said.

Harry went on to speak about “feeling more and more distant” from his father and brother, and their decision to skip the christening seems to be Charles and William’s way of confirming that those feelings are mutual.

Interestingly, the Windsors’ absence at the ceremony comes just days after the world learned that Harry and Meghan have been invited to Charles’ coronation.

Reps for the couple have confirmed that they’ve received the invitation, but have not yet responded.

“I can confirm The Duke has recently received email correspondence from His Majesty’s office regarding the coronation,” a spokesperson for the Sussexes told the Mail.

“An immediate decision on whether The Duke and Duchess will attend will not be disclosed by us at this time.”

Meghan and Harry are aware, of course, that they have the ability to profoundly humiliate Charles by turning down his invitation.

And the snub they suffered last week might have put them in the mood to return the favor.
