Prince Harry, Meghan Markle to christen baby Archie
Prince Harry, Meghan Markle to christen baby Archie

London, July 6 (TIWN) Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle on Saturday are expected to hold the baptism ceremony of their son, Archie, in Windsor Castle, on the outskirts of London, in what is to be a private ceremony attended by family and close friends, although details were yet to be made public.

Archie, who is set to have his christening at Queen Elizabeth’s private chapel at Windsor Castle (Harry was also christened there in 1984) on Saturday, will be baptized in the silver Lily Font that is traditionally used for royal christenings. 

The special family heirloom is a silver-gilt baptismal water basin that was commissioned by Queen Victoria and has been used by royals since 1841.  And similar to his cousins, Archie, who turns 2 months old on Saturday, will also be baptized with water from the River Jordan.  Another item Archie will also be sharing: the same christening robe George, 5, Charlotte, 4, and Louis, 1, wore for their own ceremonies.
