Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are currently overseas in Jordan, where the former asked for holy water.

“This time, the Embassy people asked for a few dozens [bottles] of holy water and we provided them with five dozen, six dozen, prior to this trip," Rustom Mkhjian, Director General of the Baptism Site told the Daily Mail. "I didn’t know [what it would be used for]. I didn’t want to ask, but they said we wanted it for children to be baptized later on. Future baptisms, yes.”

Paul Bayes, the Bishop of Liverpool believes that even if Queen Elizabeth isn't in attendance, she will be thrilled with the news.

"For me, as a Christian, the main thing is the act of the christening itself," he noted. "If things go wrong at a birth and it looks as though the baby isn't going to live that long, the hospital chaplain would come, only on request, and baptize the baby before it passes away. In that case, you of course don't wait around for the family to come — you do it as fast as you can, I think this underlines what the main thing is about this."

He continued, "Having said that, it's always wonderful to have a party and if that's possible I'm sure that will be lovely. But with a lot of families, including the royal family, widely spread across the country and world, it's sometimes not possible. I'm sure wherever Lilibet is christened the Queen and all members of the family will be rejoicing and hoping for that blessing."

It's been reported that Lilibet could be christened in the U.K. or California, but in October, the couple's spokesperson said: "Plans for the baby's christening have not been finalized. And as such, any assumptions about what will or will not take place are mere speculation."
