But, the Daily Mail quotes a Buckingham Palace source who claims that Harry & Meghan perhaps have not been the most accommodating in finding a suitable date for the christening.

Speculation that tennis star Serena Williams might be one of Archie's godparents was shut down this week when Williams revealed she would not be attending the ceremony as she has other plans. However, the ceremony has reportedly been bumped to Saturday because both the Queen and her son, Prince Charles, were busy that day.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have yet to release a full photo of baby Archie's face - and the shroud of secrecy is expected to continue at his christening Saturday. Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, from Los Angeles, is also at Frogmore Cottage awaiting the birth of her first grandchild.

Days ahead of baby Archie's christening at Queen Elizabeth's private chapel at Windsor Castle, Williams told reporters that she will not be a part of the royal festivities.

"They're under no pressure to pick a traditional name", Scobie said. The staff member added, "Her Majesty was already scheduled to be in Scotland for her annual Holyrood Week and had a prior engagement at the weekend".

One person argued on Twitter: "I get that they want to raise their kid as a private citizen, but then they've shared more pictures of the child than William and Catherine did of Prince George, third in line to the Throne, in his first 2 months of life".

As the Queen is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, she could make the Private Chapel a Royal Peculiar.

But it's believed that none of Harry and Meghan's high profile friends have been chosen. Or have they made the right decision?

Though Meghan and Harry have stated that they want to keep Archie's godparents' identities a secret, the Daily Mail noted that two of her best friends, Lindsay Roth and Genevieve Hillis, accompanied her to Wimbledon earlier this week.

Instead of having press photographers, fashion photographer Chris Allerton, who took their wedding photos, will capture the special moments. "I think they're just trying to have some time with their baby privately, while they can".
