On Friday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, commonly referred to as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, celebrated the christening of their daughter, Lilibet Diana.

This information was reported by PEOPLE and confirmed by a statement made by a representative for the couple.

According to the spokesperson, Lilibet Diana was christened on March 3 by the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, the Rev. John Taylor, at the Sussexes' home in Montecito, California, in the presence of a small group of 20-30 individuals.

Although invitations were extended to senior members of the royal family, including King Charles, Queen Camilla, Prince William, and Princess Kate, they did not attend the ceremony.

However, the report indicates that Lilibet's godfather, comedian and filmmaker Tyler Perry, and her grandmother, Doria Ragland, were present, along with an unnamed godmother.

It is worth noting that the couple's older child, Archie, was christened on July 6, 2019, at Windsor Castle, but his godparents' identities remain undisclosed.

Furthermore, the spokesperson's statement regarding Lilibet Diana's christening marks the first time one of the couple's children has been referred to as a prince or princess.

This follows a period of speculation about whether or not Archie and Lilibet would use these titles, which they became eligible for under a royal decree called a letters patent upon the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
