Meghan Markle is currently pregnant with her first baby, due in spring. Following the arrival of the royal baby, will Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex choose to have a christening for the youngster?
Meghan Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, are set to become parents for the first time in the very near future. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the pregnancy news last year, while they took part in their first official royal tour together. In a statement, Kensington Palace confirmed the newborn is expected to be born in spring. And, as time edges closer to the impending arrival, some people may be wondering whether the royal baby will be christened.
Whether or not there will be a christening for the youngster is yet to be confirmed.
However, as Queen Elizabeth II is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England, it’s likely that the new addition to the Royal Family will be baptised.
As a youngster, Prince Harry was baptised on December 21 1984 by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Robert Runcie, at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
And, in March last year, reports claimed that Meghan had been baptised in a private ceremony at St. James’s Palace, London.
Prince Harry’s niece and two nephews have been baptised.
Prince William, 36, and Kate Middleton, 37, welcomed their first child, Prince George, into the world back in July 2013.
And, three months later, the Archbishop of Canterbury baptised the young prince, now five, in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.
On May 2 2015, Princess Charlotte, now three, was born.
Fast forward two months, and the christening of the princess took place – this time at St. Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham.
Once again, the Archbishop of Canterbury was chosen to baptise the young member of the Royal Family.
