What to expect from the christening of Prince Harry and Meghan's daughter Lilibet Diana

  What to expect from the christening of Prince Harry and Meghan's daughter Lilibet Diana The christening of Prince Harry and Meghan's daughter is likely to break from royal tradition as the couple shun the old ways embraced by the monarchy. Lilibet Diana was born on June 4 but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have so far kept everything about her private. No photos of the baby, who is eighth-in-line to the British throne, have been shared publicly. Lilibet's baptism is expected to be very different from that of her older brother Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, which also marked a separation from how things had been done by the royal family for generations.However, members of the royal family not need to be baptised to remain in the line of succession.

Private schoolgirl Meghan ' s claims about how she 'grew up on the .99 salad bar at Sizzler', selling frozen yoghurt from 13 and struggl ing to 'make ends meet'. Meghan claims in her letter the Covid pandemic has exposed 'long-existing fault lines in our communities' and says 'millions of women' have been forced to drop out of the workforce to look after their children as a result of schools and childcare providers being closed. And in one of the most astonishing parts of her letter , she suggests her family were impoverished but does not mention her father was an Emmy award-winning lighting director and

Meghan Markle turns lobbyist: Duchess writes to US politicians saying paid leave for parents should be a 'national right' - and tells how she and Harry were 'overwhelmed' after birth of second child Lilibet. The US is among a handful of nations that do not guarantee paid sick leave or maternity or paternity pay. While the issue itself is not controversial and is supported by many in the US, Meghan ’ s very public statement is likely to ruffle feathers and add fuel to speculation that she has political ambitions.

Meghan Markle's letter to US Congress about paid parental leave is certainly eye-opening. In it she shares her childhood experiences and struggles, and what it is like to be the mother of two young children — Archie, two, and Lilibet, four months.

Despite what seems to have been a challenging childhood, Meghan has also acknowledged her privilege. She has also made her feelings about being a royal clear.

Here are the seven parts of Meghan's letter everyone is talking about.


1. She grew up eating at Sizzler and The Spaghetti Factory

Meghan begins the letter describing her childhood, painting a picture of being raised by a family that was strapped for cash.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's Daughter's Christening Isn't 'Finalized'

  Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's Daughter's Christening Isn't 'Finalized' Prince Harry, Meghan Markle's Daughter's Christening Isn't 'Finalized'Plans for the baptism “have not been finalized,” the spokesperson told E!

Talking about me — I’m not that sure as you are. I also like foreign languages, different cultures and I enjoy travelling, but I don’t think that translation or being a professor is something for me. In my opinion leaving family and parents house as soon as possible it’ s a good idea. Everyone wants it. But, unfortunately, our government in Russia does not give students the sufficient amount of money to “survive”. The scholarships are low, the rent prices are high. To be independent in financial way means working or working and studying at the same time, which meant not having a happy student’ s life.

"I grew up on the $4.99 (AUD $6.64) salad bar at Sizzler - it may have cost less back then (to be honest, I can't remember) - but what I do remember was the feeling: I knew how hard my parents worked to afford this because even at five bucks, eating out was something special, and I felt lucky," she writes.

She also makes mention of The Old Spaghetti Factory, another US affordable food chain favourited by families.

It's nice to know Meghan grew up feeding from the all-you-can-eat spreads all of us have.

2. She was a Girl Scout

Meghan made mention of The Old Spaghetti Factory as the place she and her fellow Girl Scout troops would dine at for celebratory meals.

Some of us seem to be infinitely kind, while others seem to down on everyone around them. It all started because we were talking about and having a family.

"And as a Girl Scout, when my troop would go for dinner for a big celebration, it was back to that same salad bar or The Old Spaghetti Factory - because that's what those families could afford to do too," Meghan continues.

As a Girl Scout Meghan would have learned survival skill from a young age and the importance of team work, not to mention having earned 'patches' which would be sewn onto her uniform each time she mastered a new skill including painting and learning about endangered wildlife.


3. Her first job was at the age of 13

Meghan's first job, according to her letter, was at the age of 13 at a local frozen yoghurt shop.

She went on to explain she also "waited tables, babysat and piecemealed jobs together to cover odds and ends".

Australia has only benefited from the introduction of frozen yoghurt shops in recent years, such as YoghurtBerry, where sweet frozen yoghurt flavours are adorned with anything from fruit jellies to crushed chocolate bars.

4. Meghan struggled financially as a young adult

Since her time on US TV series Suits to now, Meghan has enjoyed a substantial income that has allowed her to enjoy the better things in life. But it wasn't always like this.

"I worked all my life and saved where I could - but even that was a luxury - because it was usually about making ends meet and having enough to pay my rent or put gas in my car," she says.

Since resigning as senior members of the British royal family Meghan and Harry have signed a number of lucrative commercial deals with the likes of Netflix and Spotify, and they live in a lavish home.

While Harry grew up in wealth and privilege, Meghan didn't and is sure to have an appreciation for her financial freedom now.

5. Being a mum of two has been challenging

Raising two young children has proven challenging for Meghan, according to her letter.

"In June, my husband and I welcomed our second child," she writes. "Like any parents, we were overjoyed. Like many parents, we were overwhelmed."

We know following the birth of Archie Meghan suffered a miscarriage before falling pregnant with Lilibet which took an emotional toll. Their joy and welcoming their daughter, however, has clearly been dampened by the work involved in caring for young kids.

6. She and Harry don't have to work

Meghan has acknowledged her privilege in the letter, writing: "Like fewer parents, we weren't confronted with the harsh reality of either spending those first few critical months with our baby or going back to work.

"We knew we could take her home, and in that vital (and sacred) stage, devote any and everything to our kids and to our family.

"We knew that by doing so we wouldn't have to make impossible choices about childcare, work and medical care that so many have to make every single day."

7. She still considers herself a royal

How Meghan chose to sign the letter has raised eyebrows. She wrote: "Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex."

This is despite the couple having publicly criticised the royal family on a number of occasions, leading to calls for them to be stripped of their remaining royal titles, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

So far this hasn't happened. It seems Queen Elizabeth is keen to keep her grandson and his family in the royal fold. However when Charles ascends the throne, this could all change.
