Duchess of Susses Meghan Markle seems that she can’t stop to break the tradition in every major incident in her royal life with husband Prince Harry.
British media reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex intend on having a private baptism for baby Archie Harrison.
Their plans have been met with widespread disappointment. According to ‘Mirror’, the news comes at the end of a what could be described as a bad PR week for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle , following the release of details about their £2.4 million Frogmore Cottage rennovations.
According to Business Insider , there are three key details that may make the event deviate from tradition.
- No photos released
Earlier, Harry and Meghan have reportedly vowed to raise Archie as a “private citizen” and everything from his birth onward has been reflective of this. In this context, the new parents have been very protective of their infant son, and have been selective in their exposure of him to the public, famously scrapping the hospital photocall in favour of a very brief one in Windsor.
Since then, there were glimpses on Instagram of Archie. It is expected that they will choose to share just one carefully curated image of the day.
- The ceremony may focus on his American heritage
Baby Archie is lucky to have dual nationality and a rich heritage. According to the Expres , royal commentator Camilla Tominey revealed: “Well, speculation is mounting that it is going to be July 4, which, of course, would be wonderful to celebrate Independence Day in America as well as baby Archie’s big day in Windsor.”
This wouldn’t be the first time an American holiday has been honoured by the couple.
- The Queen won’t be there
This time, the queen has an engagement Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh on July 3.
