    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child together in May this year, naming their newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

    The couple introduced baby Archie to the world two days later, posing for photographs, but other than a sweet Mother’s and Father’s Day Instagram post, we have been without baby updates.

    Yes, speculation has been rising around every aspect of baby Sussex’s life, from who his Godparents will be to the nursery colour palette of choice. But the most talked-about aspect is undoubtedly his Christening, with the public wanting to know everything from the date and location, to who will be in attendance.

    Now, we have the answers.

    The royal couple have chosen a sentimental venue for the christening, opting for St George’s Chapel – the very same church where the royal couple tied the knot.

    The July event is expected to see a host of royal faces in the pews, from the Cambridges to Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, but one royal family member who will be absent is the Queen, who is reportedly unable to make it due to prior commitments.

    We’re sure she (like everyone else in the world) is looking forward to the photographs!
