It was rumored that the Sussexes would christen their youngest child at Windsor Castle with Queen Elizabeth II in attendance. An insider told the Telegraph that it was "highly unlikely" the royal couple will christen their daughter in the U.K. and will instead do so in the Episcopal Church in the U.S.

"There will not be a christening in the U.K. It is not happening," a Buckingham Palace insider told the publication.

Meghan and Harry welcomed their daughter on June 4.

The couple kept the christening ceremony of their first child, Archie, private. Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams previously told the Express that "Harry and Meghan’s relations with the British press went badly downhill when Archie was christened in private and the names of the godparents were not released."

The event is a private reception for donors who funded a statue of the late Princess of Wales. Harry returned to the U.K. to unveil the statue with Prince William on what would have been their mother's 60th birthday. According to PEOPLE, the Duke of Cambridge will attend the upcoming event, which is slated for Tuesday, October 19, while Harry is privately reaching out to the donors.

"Today, on what would have been our mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character — qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better," the brothers said in a joint statement when the statue was unveiled in July.

Prior to unveiling the statue, Harry returned to the U.K. in April for his grandfather, Prince Philip's funeral. Meghan, who was pregnant at the time, and Archie were not in attendance.
