Prince Harry and Meghan's plan 'to christen baby Archie in private' revealed

Prince Harry and Meghan's plan 'to christen baby Archie in private' revealed

While it was previously thought the service would be held at St George's Chapel, where Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had their wedding ceremony, new plans for an even more exclusive venue have been announced.

It is the same venue where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were Wednesday last May, and where Prince Harry was christened as an infant. Seeing Archie and his godparents arriving at the christening's what people are interested in; it is not baring your infant's soul, just giving the public that loves and supports them a crumb to enjoy'. Archie was held in the arms of his father Harry, whilst wearing a white cotton beanie.

And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex won't have to travel far from their Frogmore Cottage home, also on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Ms Junor said: "We're not asking for Archie to become public property but to be able to share in the pleasure of his christening, I think it is only fair to give the public that pleasure".

Both Prince George and Prince Louis were christened at the Chapel Royal in London. After the christening, pictures will be released. In honour of Canada Day, the royal couple - who welcomed their little boy on 6 May - paid a special tribute to the nation with a series of Canada-related memories. Traditionally, the royal family releases their own portraits from the christenings.

"People love him and they're really happy for him - he's married Meghan and they've had the baby - and they want to share in the joy of that and I think this is a bad shame and I think it's a mistake".

But she has drawn criticism from some by knocking the police boat, which was attempting to stop her from docking. German-born Rackete was arrested on Saturday after docking her ship on the Italian island of Lampedusa.


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

We'll see if we get any photos from the event or if they really are intending to stay private. The Queen is not set to be among them as she has prior commitments.

The doting parents were also photographed outside of the hospital where the children were born shortly after their arrival - a royal tradition Prince Harry and Meghan also broke.

Forgoing public appearances and photo opportunity outside christenings isn't unusual for the royal family.

Harry said: "Environmental damage has been treated as a necessary by-product of economic growth".
