It’s a tradition for royal babies to get baptized between two and three months old, and Daily Mail reports that Archie’s baptism will happen in July, when he is two months old.

Finally, the Buckingham Palace announced that Archie’shis christening will be on Saturday, July 6.

For their first son’s christening, Meghan Markle and chose the chapel where they got married last year. It’s also where Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot.

St George’s Chapel is in Windsor, which, as royal fans will know, is also where Frogmore Cottage is located, meaning that Meghan and Harry won’t have a long commute to the ceremony.

 

Why Queen Elizabeth won’t go to the event?

That said, it looks like Queen Elizabeth won’t be able to make it, which is a major bummer. But! she has a legit-sounding solid reason.

She “will be absent on other duties.” That means that Prince Charles and Camilla will be the most senior members of the royal family there. And no, the Queen’s absence isn’t a snub to Archie—she just doesn’t attend the christenings of every single one of her great-grandchildren. By the way, she also couldn’t attend Prince Louis’s christening.

 

Will we see any celebs?

So, royal christenings tend to be smaller, private affairs, but many are speculating that Meghan and Harry’s ceremony might be more Hollywood. Considering Meghan’s friend group includes Gayle King, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, and Priyanka Chopra, it wouldn’t be a total shocker if they got invites.

 

Will Archie be wearing a gown just like Kate Middleton’s kids?

Probably the most adorable feature of royal baptisms is that all British royal babies wear the same massive lace christening gown, which was also a tradition started by Queen Victoria in the 1840s. The gown has been worn by so many royal babies that in 2008, it was put in the royal archives for preservation, and now all of the little royals wear a replica for their big day.
