They’re fiercely protective of their newborn son, with royal fans not even getting a full look at Archie Mountbatten Windsor’s face yet.
And now Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly planning to have a private ‘media-free’ christening for their one-month-old son next weekend.
According to The Times, Archie will likely be christened at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday, July 6th - the same venue where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot in 2018.
According to reports, the couple have only invited 25 family and friends to the special occasion , which and the Queen won’t even be in attendance, because she reportedly has other commitments on the day.
It’s believed Buckingham Palace will release select photos from the christening after it’s taken place.
Royal author Penny Juror slammed the couple in The Times, saying it’s a slap in the face to the public, just days after it was revealed works on their home, Frogmore Cottage, has cost the taxpayer $4.3 million.
"They can't have it both ways. Either they are totally private, pay for their own house and disappear out of view or play the game the way it is played,” Penny said.
"Seeing Archie and his godparents arriving at the christening is what people are interested in."
Indeed, Harry and Meghan’s plans for Archie’s christening are a stark contrast to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s celebrations for their three children.
Crowds queued for hours in 2013 for the christening of Prince George at The Chapel Royal at St James's Palace and again in June 2018 for Prince Louis’ christening.
In 2015, royal fans were invited into the grounds of Sandringham for Princess Charlotte’s christening at the Church of St Mary Magdalene at Sandringham.
However, it’s believed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will dress Archie in the Honiton christening gown, which has been passed down from generation to generation in the royal family.
