Everything You Need to Know About Baby Archie’s Christening
Baby Archie is barely two months old, but the world is eager to get their eyes on him as much as possible. And lucky for us, the next occasion to see little Archie in all his adorable glory isn’t so far away as details around his christening are revealed — and boy is it set to be a royal-worthy spectacle.
In a new report from Sunday Times’ royal correspondent Roya Nikkhah, the christening is all set to take place in early July, just as baby Archie hits the two-month-old mark. And the location of the christening is guaranteed to provide us with the glorious spectacle we’ve come to love from the royals — St. George’s chapel in Windsor.
Yep, you’ve heard of this place before — it’s the exact same location Archie’s parents Harry and Meghan were married in their globally televised ceremony in May 2018.
Going by the incredible viewing provided from Harry and Meghan’s nuptials, we’re expecting Archie’s christening will provide some extra special viewing for us royal fanatics! The special location is also exactly where Prince Harry himself was christened back in 1984, so it’s guaranteed to be an extra special day.
According to Roya’s report, the Archbishop of Canterbury will do the honors, while baby Archie is expected to wear the very same christening gown worn by a number of royals before him, including Princes George and Louis, as well as Princess Charlotte.
The gown, which is a replica of the traditional Honiton lace christening gown, is set to look absolutely stunning on the brand new royal.
Expected to be in attendance are a number of high-profile guests, including Archie’s aunt and uncle Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
But there is one notable royal who is not expected to be present — the queen herself!
But don’t fret — she’s most certainly not snubbing Archie and the Sussexes in any way, she simply has a “prior commitment” according to the report.
And that being said, the queen hasn’t had the best track record when it comes to being present at all of her great grandchildren’s christenings. Indeed she did not attend the christening of Prince Louis, which took place around the same time last year.
Who will Archie’s godparents be?
Along with a new set of glorious pics of the royal baby, the christening is also guaranteed to provide us with another big reveal: who Archie’s godparents are.
The topic has been the subject of wide debate since his birth, with many speculating a slew of Harry and Meghan’s A-list friends could take out the highly-anticipated title. Meghan’s best friend and stylist, Jessica Mulroney, is a hot favorite among the masses, as well as pal and tennis legend Serena Williams.
And none other than Amal Clooney, human rights lawyer and wife to Hollywood screen legend George Clooney, has also been touted to take on the important role.
We’ll be waiting with bated breath to see who the lucky nominee is! Stay tuned.
