Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are all set to hold the baptism ceremony of their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in a private family ceremony at Windsor Castle on Saturday.
The 2-month-old son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be christened in a private chapel at the castle by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, head of the Church of England.
The ceremony will be bereft of media presence in contrast to those held by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, for their three children, as Harry and Meghan have decided to bring up Archie as a private citizen.
Archie will wear a lace and satin christening gown that was also used for his cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, according to report.
After the ceremony, Harry and Meghan are expected to share some pictures of the baptism, taken by photographer Chris Allerton
Archie was born on May 6 this year and his name was believed to have little precedent within the modern British royal family.
The couple shared the news of baby Archie on Instagram with an image of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh meeting their newest great-grandchild.
The newest royal baby, wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a matching cap, appeared at full ease and apparently sleeping as dad Prince Harry cradled him in his arms, posing for the shutterbugs who had been waiting impatiently to click “Baby Sussex”.
Baby Archie’s maternal grandmother, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland was “overjoyed at the arrival of her first grandchild”
