Royal baby – When will Archie Harrison Mountbatten's christening be?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became parents to baby Archie Mountbatten-Windsor this month, sending royal watchers across the globe into a frenzy.
But now he's finally here when will his christening be? Here's everything you need to know.
When is the royal baby's christening?
Baby Archie was born in Windsor on May 6, 2019.
The royals usually have christening up to three months after the baby is born.
However, Meghan and Harry are known for doing things different so it's not yet clear when the special day will be.
Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliam told Fabulous Digital: "The royals tend to have christenings two or three months after the birth. Expect them to do what they want to."
The means the christening could take place in early summer, before the Queen goes up to Scotland for her break at Balmoral.
He added: “Be most entirely certain that Archie won’t be emulating Princess Eugenie & having a public christening, which is unique for a royal.
“Expect Archie to be christened in St George’s Chapel, where Harry was christened and where he and Meghan were married as they have developed such strong links with Windsor.”
Who will be godparents to Meghan Markle's royal baby?
Jessica Mulroney is widely regarded as Meghan’s BFF, so therefore a good bet for godmother to the royal baby.
She even flew Down Under to join Meghan and Harry on their tour of Australia and New Zealand.
And the Duchess of Sussex reportedly made her the first to know her baby news, spilling the beans on a trip to Toronto in August 2018, according to US Weekly.
Also in the running is rumoured royal matchmaker and American designer Misha Nonoo.
The 31-year-old was born in Bahrain, raised in London and educated in Paris – but currently lives in the US, which is where she and Meg are thought to have met.
Her auction house boss ex-husband Alexander Gilkes, 39, is one of Harry's best mates and Eton school pals – and could also be a contender for godfather.
The couple were guests at Kate Middleton and Wills' wedding, while Eugenie, Beatrice and James Middleton all attended their Venice ceremony in 2012.
Other possible godparents from Meghan’s pals are TV producer and author Lindsay Jill Roth and entertainment lawyer Benita Litt.
Tennis star Serena Williams has also been tipped as a godparent to the new baby.
Her and Meghan have been friends since meeting at a Super Bowl party in 2010 and the Duchess has cheered her pal on at Wimbledon every year since.
When it comes to Harry’s pals, among the favourites is Jake Warren, the son of the Queen's racing manager John Warren.
Him and Harry have been lifelong friends and both went to Ludgrove Prep School and Eton College together.
Jake is married to Zoe Warren – and their daughter Zalie, who is Harry's goddaughter, was also a flower girl at the Royal wedding.
Tom "Skippy" Inskip has been Harry's partner in crime since his Eton school days, and is known for his wild partying past.
He was by Harry's side for several scandals in his younger years, including the Las Vegas pool debacle.
