Christening of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor: July 6th, 2019
 
Archie's christening is going to be a private one so no photos of going in and out of the service. Not surprised as Archie is not an HRH and his parents are determined to keep aspects of his life private. We might get an Instagram post but notice list of godparents.

:previous: I am thoroughly not surprised to hear this news. It's what I had suspected. No photo ops. And if that's definitely the case, Archie may be christened at the chapel inside Windsor Castle. If he's christened at St. George's Chapel, security will have to be tight and cameras restricted.

I see your linked thumbnail report is by Roya Nikkah. Someone at one of the palaces must have leaked to Nikkah after some of M&H's christening plans trickled out to royal family members and staff. However, I don't think Nikkah is always accurate in her reporting.

Most likely Archie will follow tradition and be christened in the Honiton christening gown worn by new additions to the Windsor family. Its not the original gown but there's still a whole lot of history behind it.

Considering even the non royal grandkids have worn it and Archie title or not is the grandson of the future king, pretty safe bet he will wear it.

Indeed. But my hunch is that there would be some kind of a twist. Let's just wait and see

Maybe he'll be decked out in his new MLB shirt with his name on it so everyone will know its him!! :hiding:

Sorry, had to do it. Seriously though, I don't think they're going to mess with the tradition on this one or have anything different. It really is a very beautiful christening gown.

Haha this is just my wishful-thinking haha. But yeah that christening gown is a piece of Windsor history. It would be best if Master Archie will wear it too:biggrin:

Christening of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor: 6th July 2019.
 
Rumour is the christening is next Saturday at St George’s Chapel.

If the dates wrong I still think it needs its own thread.

All British Royal Family christenings happen in private. We only see family members enter and leave the church doors. And afterwards, family pictures are posted. We do not see the actual christening.

They do not do a televised christening like eg. the Sweden Royals.

Pranter 06-30-2019 08:59 AM

Hopefully we will see some pics of them coming/going.

OMG I'm so excited

I just read that the Christening will be private. Im guessing this means they will release photos later and ww wont get to see them arrive and leave the chapel. Im a tad bit disappointed if this is true. Id love to see the Sussexs' in action with Archie like weve seen with the Cambridges and their children for their Christenings.

We will see them arrive and leave more than likely, Cambridge children’s christenings have been private but we’ve seen arrivals and departures.

All christenings are private. As for the arrivals/departures? I do think there is a strong possibility we won't see those which is what people are getting riled up about.

The Cambridge kids are HRH and will be working royals eventually. That is not the case with Archie so to his parents feel there is no need for the same presentation, so to speak. The press might still see them but there likely will not be a fixed position for the media.

That is my take. Of course it is all speculation. We had endless debates on how they would introduce Archie and it ended up being just fine overall. The press got their pictures and the Sussexes were able to do it their way. Will probably be more of the same here.

Unlike many of their Continental counterparts BRF Christenings are always private, with no cameras in the church/chapel, only pictures of their arrival and departure and official photos afterwards.

I find it quite hilarious that the press are really sure Harry and Meghan will break with tradition and/or protocol with this but no one seems to be able to say how they'll definitely do it or why.

Were British Royal christenings private in the Victorian age ? If not ( as I suspect) , when did they become private?

So true, British Royal Family christenings are always private.

:smile:

Depends what you mean by 'private' (in Victorian times) I suppose. This is a painting of the 1842 christening at Windsor of the future Edward VII in 1842. Complete with family, courtiers, foreign royalty, masses of clergy etc.

They must have moved away from that, because now their christenings are always private; all we see are the arrivals and departures, and eventually some official photos.

I wonder who was the last Royal Baby who was christened like Edward VII in 1842.

Lilyflo 06-30-2019 12:23 PM

It hasn't even been tradition to see arrivals & departures for royal christenings as many have taken place in BP or Windsor Castle with official photos afterwards.
