Meghan and Harry’s daughter, Lilibet, has yet to be added to the royal family’s lineage listed on the official website seven weeks after her birth.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 4 in the US and is eighth in line to the throne.

But the royal family’s website has yet to recognize Lilibet’s birth on the official line of succession.

The website, which helps keep the public informed about matters related to the House of Windsor, still lists Prince Andrew as eighth in line and the name of Harry and Meghan’s daughter is still missing.

Lilibet should rank eighth below her brother Archie whose name was added to the list just 15 days after his birth in 2019.

When her cousin Prince Louis was born, the second son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, his name was added to the list just 12 days after he was born.

Zara and Mike Tindall’s son, Lucas, 22nd in line to the throne, has been on the website since his birth in March.

Born in June, Lilibet was named after the Queen’s childhood nickname, while her middle name Diana was a tribute to Harry’s late mother.

It comes in the wake of Harry and Meghan’s explosive two-hour CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey.

In the interview, which aired in March, the couple expressed their dismay that Archie would not become a prince.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also said racism drove them out of Britain, claiming their son Archie was denied the title of Prince because he is a mixed race.

During a speech on the Royal Rota podcast on Friday, ITV Royal Editor Chris Ship suggested that the House of Windsor ‘made a point’.

He said, ‘You must be wondering why it took so long. All they have to do is press the paragraph button and enter another number.

“They must have done it before. They did it for Archie. Obviously they did it for Louis when he was born.

“And they’ve done it for some of the other kids, like August, who were born too. So where is Lilibet? I can forgive them for a week or two, but a month?’

Ship suggested that after such a long omission, it was “a bit petty.”

‘Do they say, ‘We’ll be there when we’re ready?’ I have a feeling they might be making a point.”

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the royal family’s website is “updated periodically”.

It comes amid claims the pair want Lilibet to have a royal christening like her older brother Archie,

According to royal insiders, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Lilibet Diana, could follow in the footsteps of older brother Archie and be baptized with the Queen in St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

A source previously told the Daily Mail: “Harry has told several people that they want Lili baptized in Windsor, as has her brother Archie.

“They like to wait until circumstances permit.”
