Since May 8, when little Archie, son of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made his first appearance in the world, he was not seen. After the first official photo session with his parents, the baby, together with his mother, retires and then is only generally seen on the next public date that is his baptism.

As the official event approaches according to the common expectations and the Daily Mail site, we separate the details and curiosities here:

Date and place of the event

Archie must be baptized next July as, in general, the ceremony happens when the child is between two and three months old.

The religious celebration will probably take place at the same place where Meghan and Harry were married. St. George's Chapel is located in the region of Frogmore Cottage, where today Meghan and Harry live.

Guest list

In general the actual baptized are small and intimate celebrations, but probably not Archie's since some famous names are among the great friends of the parents. Serena Williams, Amal and George Clooney, Priyanka Chopra and Gayle King could be part of the ceremony.

In general, Queen Elizabeth does not attend this type of event and therefore is expected not to be present at the ceremony. According to the same site, she "will be absent from her duties" and who represents therefore the oldest members of the crown are Charles and Camilla.

Special ceremony

Beginning with the celebration of the oldest bishop of England, everything in the actual baptism is differentiated. The water is special, coming from the Jordan River where Jesus was baptized and placed in a special basin, commissioned in 1840 by Queen Victoria for the baptismal ceremonies.


The speculation around the theme is huge and will end on the date when it will finally be revealed. Most likely the famous friends will be on the list, since the babies of the crown not only have 2 godfathers but between five and seven. Louis, the younger son of Kate and William, for example, has six. On the other hand, do not expect your brother and wife to be chosen by Meghan and Harry. In the royal family these very close relatives already have a relevant role in the creation and life of the child and are not usually godparents.

Special clothing

All royal children wear the same lace clothing, a tradition that has existed since Victoria's time. The clothing had been used so many times since then, that in 2008 it was chosen to keep it and preserve it. Babies currently use a replica for the special day.
