Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, is due to be christened at the queen’s private chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday, July 6, 2019.
While royal fans had previously expected to receive a plethora of information about the special occasion, it’s now been revealed that baby Archie’s christening will be almost entirely private—including the identities of his godparents.
Royal correspondent Omid Scobie tweeted details about the christening via a statement from Buckingham Palace. The release revealed that Chris Allerton would take portraits for the occasion (he was responsible for the photo of Archie meeting the queen and Prince Philip) and also stated, “The godparents, in keeping with their wishes, will remain private.” Unlike the Prince William and Duchess Kate, who revealed the identities of their children’s godparents to the general public, the Sussexes will not announce baby Archie’s.
Archie’s godparents have already been the focal point of much speculation, so it’s beyond understandable that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex prefer to keep their identities private. But some fans are bound to be disappointed, particularly as celebrities including George and Amal Clooney were rumored to be candidates for the important roles.
