The cute name has grown on me.
I hope Archie is growing healthy and strong and that his mother is recovering well.

My guess is that it'll be before the Queen leaves for her summer hiatus at Balmoral and at St. George's Chapel.

St George's Chapel makes the most sense - Harry was baptised there, they married there and it is the Queen's favoured home.

For all we know he may already have been baptised. If the reports are correct that Doria has already returned to the US it is possible he was baptised privately before she left rather than asking her to come back again within a couple of months.

I think Archie’s future christening will be announced.

I have just realized that with Harrison, they made a clever nod to his american roots. Indeed it is usual in the US to have the first son to have his father's Jr, the first grandson is the third, etc.

For example for those who like basketball. Stephen Curry is the son of Dell Curry, but their real name are Wardell Stephen Curry II, Stephen is his middle name, and his father is Wardell Stephen Curry I, Dell is in fact a nickname of Wardell. Will Smith, the actor is Willard Carol Smith, Jr, and his first son who goes by Trey Smith, is in fact Willard Carol Smith III

Harry Jr would have been too much for the UK, so Harrison (Harry's son) is a nice compromise.

I always thought that Harry's christening took place in the private chapel of Windsor Castle. All the royal baptisms at Windsor have been there as opposed to St. George's which is rather vast for a christening.

Why not simply Henry, after his father?

Or they just like Harrison.

We don't know why, and I don't think it matters. At the end of the day, it seems that they are happy with the names they picked for their baby, so that's that. I just hope for a picture on Father's Day.

Patriotic American name?

Like Abraham (Lincoln) , since George (Washington) is already in use?

On Mother's Day we got a picture of Archie's legs, so perhaps on Father's Day we'll be treated to his hands

Birth of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor: May 6, 2019

Archie's christening will be announced I'm sure, though he's still quite young to be christened. It depends on the parents and their "age preference" I guess.

Yes, I know. I had two articles open at the time when I was double checking Louis’s age as my memory was slightly hazy so must have gotten carried away. Mea culpa

You might think that, but his entire life he has been called Harry, he introduces himself as Harry, that is who he thinks he is.

Henry is a name on a piece of paper with nothing to do with him. I guess that's why it really throws me off when someone insists on calling him Henry, a name by which he is not universally known. It might matter if he was the heir, but he's not.

I think the christening will in late July or early August, before the Queen goes to Scotland. Probably at St George's. I hope we'll get some official pictures, and finally get to see the baby's face properly.

Of course it's possible the Queen won't attend the christening. She didn't attend Louis's.

Traditional American names? Do you mean Native American? Or names like George which come from other cultures like the UK originally. Not very many 'traditional' American names not deeply entrenched in places like Europe.

Actually if we want a Patriotic nod, Harrison is just that. As well as to Harry.

There were 2 US presidents, William Henry and Benjamin Harrison (grandfather and grandson). The Simpsons will always make me remember William Henry.



Benjamin Harrison was actually known as a supporter of civil rights. He tried enacting laws to protect the civil rights of African Americans.

Benjamin was named after his great-grandfather, Benjamin Harrison V, a signer of the declaration of independence. William Henry was a younger son, his older brother was Benjamin Harrison VI. The Harrison family was full of politicians of different forms.

I think as he is Harry's first child, the queen and Philip will attend his baptism. They attended Mia's baptism.

I would be shocked if we don't get official portraits. Harry and Meghan are not private citizens. They may keep the christening more under wraps like his birth, but they released photos then.

I still think it will be like the Wessex kids. A private baptism, but with the photos and information made public after.

For all we know, Harry could have always wished his name was short for Harrison instead of Henry.
