Prince Harry and Meghan 'will hold private christening' for Archie
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced a date for their first born's christening.
Prince Harry and Meghan will attend a private ceremony for their son Archie's christening.
The service will be held at the private chapel at Windsor Castle and is understood to be a "very small gathering", a royal source told ITV news.
Archie's christening will take place on Saturday, July 6, exactly two months after he was born in May.
It is understood that pictures of the ceremony will be released on Sunday through the media and Harry and Meghan's Instagram account.
It's not uncommon for royals to have private christenings, with invitations extending only to close family and friends, and chosen godparents.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have previously let photographers take pictures of them, their children, family members and guests arriving before holding private services.
Prince George and Prince Louis were both christened at Chapel Royal in London, while Princess Charlotte's ceremony was held at the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham, in Norfolk, where the paddock outside the churchyard was opened to the public.
It's believed the Archbishop of Canterbury, who married Harry and Meghan last year, will be the one to orchestrate the proceedings, as he is usually called upon to perform royal christenings.
The decision to hold a private ceremony comes after it emerged £2.4 million of taxpayers' money had been spent renovating the couple's residence at Frogmore Cottage.
