Confusion over the absence of Lili from the webpage was raised after fans recalled how Archie had been added to the list 15 days after his birth.

Similarly, Prince William and Kate Middleton's youngest son, Prince Louis, was added just 12 days after his birth in April 2018.

Zara and Mike Tindall's son Lucas, who was born three months before Lili, has been listed as 22nd in line to the throne since his March birth.

"They must have done it before. They did it for Archie. Clearly, they did it for Louis when he was born. So where's Lilibet? I can forgive them a week or two, but a month?

"It does feel like to me, maybe, they are making a point," he concluded.

A source claimed earlier this month that Prince Harry, 36, told a number of people close to him that he and Meghan, 39, are keen to have Lili christened at Windsor Castle – the same place as Archie – in a special moment for the family.

"Harry told several people that they want to have Lili christened at Windsor, just like her brother,” a source told the Daily Mail.

The publication then revealed the insider suggested the couple are happy to “wait until circumstances allow”.
