PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s son Archie may soon be making another public appearance.
After today’s sweet Father’s Day post, it’s reported that the six-week-old will be baptised next month.
Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, have chosen St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle for the special occasion, according to The Sunday Times.
The venue is particularly poignant for the couple, who married there in May 2018.
It’s also where Harry was baptised back in 1984.
Archie – who was born on May 6 – will be two months old when he’s doused from the lily font with water from the River Jordan.
There’s expected to be a strong royal turnout for the occasion.
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are said to be leading the party, alongside Kate Middleton and Prince William.
But there’s one important person who won’t be there – the Queen. Prior commitments mean she’ll have to give it a miss.
This isn’t the first time the Queen has skipped a great-grandchild’s baptism.
While she attended Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s christenings, she wasn’t able to attend Prince Louis’ last year.
Archie’s baptism is thought to be following in royal tradition, with the tot wearing a replica of the Honiton lace gown.
The original piece was commissioned by Queen Victoria for the christening of her first child Princess Victoria in 1841.
It was worn by 62 royal babies – including Harry and William, 36 – but a replica was made after the Queen decided it had become too fragile.
The service is expected to be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, the Rev David Conner and the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Harry made the announcement outside their home, Frogmore Cottage.
Harry said: “It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined.
“How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But we’re both absolutely thrilled.
“We’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there, it’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody.”
