He is barely over six weeks old. I'd be surprised if he was already baptized. they were done right after birth a hundred years ago when many babies died, but the age certainly has gone up.

Yeah, it's rarer to get Christened as a newborn now. Look at Mia Tindall, she didn't get Christened until she was over 10 months old. I suspect Arthur will get Christened in the time range from 2 months old to the end of summer 2019.

I think that depends on the Church too...Catholics still usually (depending on how practicing the parents are) have a baptism done within a month of birth.

I agree. It's very rare for Catholic royals and aristocrats to not baptize their children within six months.

The more observant the parents, the sooner the infant is baptized.

Its very possible that Pippa and James have decided not to baptize their children at all. I'm not saying this is the case but its a possibility. We don't know the religious leanings of either Pippa or James. Its a personal decision.

But neither Pippa nor James are Catholic AFAIK.

Possibly, though for a 6 week old child, it is a bit early to speculate on. In my experience, most christenings take place when the babies are between 4 - 8 months old.

Yes but that's not really the point of the initial comment.

Pippa & James Matthews, Carole, Michael and James Middleton all attended the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund carol service

They obviously attend every year.

Not a real surprise..she has great genetics that run toward the lean side of things and she's worked out prior to and during the pregnancy. Clothes hide things too.

The Middletons and the Matthews families are celebrating New Year's Eve together at St.Barts.

The DM has been referring t David Matthews' rape case, but that seems to be in limbo.

Pippa became friends with Roger first a number of years ago when she interviewed him for something she was writing.

Moved my answer here as we were getting off topic from the Sussexes.
