I’m about to make royal stans very happy, because not only did we get a great new pic of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby Archie Harrison today, but there are also new reports about his baptism.
According to Daily Mail, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will be christened next month at St. George’s Chapel, which is also where Meghan and Harry got married last year and where Harry and Prince William had their baptisms.
Royal christenings are private events, so only friends and family get invites, however, the royals do get their photos taken, which means that we’ll get even more pics of the nug that is little Archie.
The other intel that we have about the christening is that Queen Elizabeth reportedly won’t be attending the ceremony. She “will be absent on other duties,” so Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla will be leading the royal party. But it’s not a snub to Meghan and Harry or anything—the Queen doesn’t go to all of her great-grandchildren’s christenings. While she was there for Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s ceremonies, she didn’t attend Prince Louis’ last year.
And besides the new Archie photos that we have to look forward to, after the christening we’ll also finally know who Meg and Harry chose as godparents. Some people think that they may go Hollywood and have George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, or Priyanka Chopra as godparents (though George has denied those rumors). But obviously Harry also has tons of royal family members to choose from too, so it might be a mix of celebs and royals who end up with Archie as a godson. Can’t wait to see who it is!
