Meghan Markle and Prince Harry should be in preparation mode for Baby Archie's christening and details are pouring in as the one-month-old newborn continues to receive attention from around the world.


According to unofficial reports from Elle magazine, the christening of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will take place sometime in July. The location will be the St. George's Chapel in Windsor.

Of course, that's the same place that Megan Markle and Prince Harry got wed in May 2018. It was also the location for Prince Harry's 1984 christening.

The alleged report revealed that we might see Baby Archie wearing the same gown that his cousins Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte wore for their christening in recent years.


The piece is a replica of that which was worn by Prince William and Prince Harry for their christenings. Queen Victoria commissioned the Honiton lace gown for daughter Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa in the mid-1800s.

Other unconfirmed reports support expectations that only close family and friends will attend the historic event. Prince William and Kate Middleton are on the list, as are their children if they don't have to go to school.

Also present will be Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Similar to the situation for Prince Louis' christening last year, the Queen of Elizabeth is not expected to attend due to prearrangements.


However, Markle's mother Doria Ragland will presumably fly in from her California home to be there for her grandchild's christening. Archie's godparents will likewise be making a trip.

As to who the godparents will be, several guesses are still floating around. It could be Markle's close friends Jessica and Ben Mulroney, or perhaps Harry's pals Jake and Zoe Warren.

Other options might be Harry's cousins Zara Philips and Princess Eugenie, legendary tennis player Serena Williams, and both Markle and Harry's friends Amal and George Clooney.

Royal fans will just have to wait and see who the lucky godparents are when the time comes around. Dean of Windsor, Reverand David Conner, and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will reportedly conduct the service.


We expect to see the traditional Lily Font used. The silver gilt bowl dates back to 1841 with Princess Victoria. Finally, water from the Jordan River will likely be poured on little Archie's head.

After Archie was born on May 6, the world had to wait a few days for the little one to make his big reveal. Markle retreated to her new residence at Frogmore house for the weeks following the delivery.

Her mother was on hand to assist with baby duties. Other staff was present, but Vanity Fair reported that the Sussexes "scaled back" the team as a matter of personal preference regarding space.


Markle made her first appearance since presenting Archie on June 8 at Trooping the Color. Joined by Harry, it was clear that the couple left little Archie in trusted hands.

Thankfully, royal fans recently got a glimpse of the adorable bundle of joy when Father's Day rolled around. On their official Instagram account, the new parents shared a heartwarming photo of Archie with his tiny fingers holding one of his dad's.

The filtered picture also featured Archie's face from the nose up. "Happy Father's Day! And wishing a very special first Father's Day to The Duke of Sussex!" read the caption of the sweet picture.
