In any case, there will likely be leaks. So, in fact, there may be no official announcement of the godparents, just a release of pictures taken after the christening. And then the names of godparents may be leaked without any official announcement.

Or an unofficial announcement may be made on the Sussex Instagram with a few pictures. Who knows? As has been said, either way, it's not the end of the world.

Again, the Sussexes not making a godparent announcement to me would be intended to protect the chosen godparents from press intrusion about Archie and their relationship with Archie. This is especially true for those godparents who may be private citizens, unaccustomed to being bombarded by press queries.

Have the Baptism details been officially announced or is this all leaks and / or speculation, or has a favoured reporter been given a scoop.

No one has been given a scoop. It's all leaks/speculation.

Both private chapel and St. George’s have been floated by various members of the media. As have different dates with the latest being July 6th. At the beginning, the reports were more vague with just early July and in Windsor. They seem to get more detailed as we draw closer. I'm assuming they would know if there is a day St. George's will be closed if it's there, so it's not exactly hard to think it's at the private chapel, which only came out in the last couple of days.

Based on the way RRs are tweeting now, there might have been some unofficial guidance due to preparing them for the photo release, which isn’t unusual, from my understanding, to get everyone on the same page. Of course, that means now media is asking for a camera to be put in place for arrival and departure. But no official announcement. The announcement would likely come with photos like the Wessexes.

So in other words, we have no idea. Even if St. George's is not closed, it mightn't be in the private chapel, or this weekend, or at Windsor at all. I think it would be very amusing if permission were given to have a camera put in place, and then the actual ceremony was someplace else.

Nothing official at all released. Just a few RR's who are claiming the baptism is this coming Saturday in the Queen's Private Chapel at Windsor. 3 pictures to be released after. That was today's info...but no one has confirmed anything.

BTW, last week's story was that it'd be July 4th. Which sent some into a frenzy for another reason.

I would laugh but Iím sure the press core wouldnít be as amused. I donít get why they so obsessed with seeing people walk down a hall for a few seconds when we getting official pictures. Oh well.

The press seem confident it is Saturday, so my guess they got some kind of confirmation from BP about it.

It is a wonder that July 1st was not selected as the christening date. That is Princess Diana's birthday.

July 4th is a holiday in US. Itíd allow Doria to travel over the long weekend without having to take too many days off. And obviously, we donít know who else is invited to know if others are traveling from US.

It also conflicted with other royals scheduling. Charles is away. The Cambridges had engagements. They would all be there. But yes it being Diana's birthday and Charles' Investiture anniversary. Lots of reason why it was not today.

The reason I never believed the July 4th date is that Charles has 6 engagements in Wales that day as part of his annual Wales week, which coincides with the Queen's Holyrood week. This year is also special for Charles and Wales as he celebrates 50 years since his investiture as Prince of Wales on the 1st.

I'm glad it wasn't. Imho it's weird to try to tie every celebration or event or occasion to Diana's special days. Jmho of course.

Cocoasneeze, Your opinion is excellent. I agree that all of Diana's days do not have to be scheduled for a remembrance in an event such as the christening.

Oh come on, not releasing the names of the godparents? I understand they want him to be a private citizen and Iím all for that, but even the non HRH grandchildren of the Queen had their godparents names released to the public.

This is all just a bit too much.

Well the Godparents requested it so should Harry and Meghan ignore their wishes?

I read the original language from BP. It seems that the godparents wish to remain private, which I completely understand and they have an absolute right to.

The exact sentence is as follows:

The godparents, in keeping with their wishes, will remain private.

The godparents want to remain anonymous. That’s their right especially as we have already seen the media invade the privacy of some of her friends.

Also we don’t know the godparents of all the great grandchildren. It’s not required knowledge.
