Archie's private christening 'a awful shame', claims royal biographer

Archie's private christening 'a awful shame', claims royal biographer

The christening will take place on July 6, exactly two months after Archie was born, in the same chapel where the couple married in May 2018 and where Prince Harry was christened in 1984.

Archie's christening breaks from recent royal tradition in that the public will not be allowed to see the guests as they arrive, as Harry and Meghan are determined to maintain some privacy for their only son. The venue of the ceremony will remain St George's Chapel, where is also Prince Harry was christened.

In 2015, royal fans were invited into the grounds of Sandringham Estate for Princess Charlotte's christening.

The Yankees presented the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with a jersey for their infant son, Archie, with his name on the back and the number 19 to mark the year of his birth.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's newborn baby, Archie, is getting christened at the Queen's private chapel in Windsor, England, next Saturday.

Chatting with The Times, Junor said: 'They can not have it both ways. So much so that the new updates to her engagement ring make it look a lot like her old one.

The decision to hold a private ceremony comes after it emerged £2.4 million of taxpayers' money had been spent renovating the couple's residence Frogmore Cottage.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are planning a very private affair for Archie.

Typically, royal christenings are private with only close family, friends and godparents in attendance, with photos released to the public the day after.

Kate Middleton and Prince William didn't forget the holiday either.

At the time, rumours swirled that the Duchess did not want to meet Trump, who called her "nasty" in an interview after hearing she had previously criticised him during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Duchess of Sussex accompanied husband Prince Harry to the London Stadium ahead of Europe's first ever Major League Baseball game between the New York Yankees and the Boston side.

Prince Harry and Meghan's day at the ballpark also included a reception with former United Kingdom and US Invictus competitors as Harry's Invictus Games Foundation is the charity partner for the MLB London Series.
