Diana and her maternal grandmother did not get along for a time but possibly made up. Diana talked about her paternal grandmother Cynthia Spencer being her inspiration. So I'd be surprised if Ruth is selected as a name.

(Besides, if it's public information, what's the issue?)
It was a traditional royal christening held in Windsor Castle with Archie wearing the royal robe.
Not sure who the clergy were.
Photographs were issued later.
The only real difference was that they declined to name the god parents.

Other great grand children I believe other than the Cambridge children were low key , small local churches , not announced in advance, no official photographs and I don't think the godparents were announced.

Talking

I cannot imagine Harry and particularly Meghan going back to the UK anytime soon to have their little girl baptized. Most do it at a couple of months so they fit in the gown - William was baptized at 6 weeks and Harry was 2-3 months when he was christened. I cannot find the exact date but he was born in September and christened in December. Also it is pretty traditional to do it before 6 monthish

We couldn’t button the family gown on my younger daughter - her neck had gotten a little too big

Sweden's Prince Alexander was 5 months IIRC at his christening (and also a beautiful pudgy baby ) and they had problems closing the gown in the back.

I'm not sure what your point is? As for the christening itself, Archie basically had the same type of christening as Lena did. Archie was wearing the Honiton lace christening gown, yes, and so was Lena (it is the family gown after all). Lena was christened in Gloucestershire, yes, because that's where she and her family lives. Archie was christened in Windsor where he and his family lived. We only know, say, Harry is Lena's godfather because he attended the christening. That's also how people are pretty sure Tiggy Pettifer is among Archie's godparents. The only thing that differs largely is the fact that H&M released a few pictures after Archie's christening.

Princess Eugenie was NINE months old when she wore he original lace gown. (Andrew was away at sea.) They couldn't button up the back at all. Only one other baby wore it after that, Louise. James was the first to wear the new one.

[......] And as far as I remember there were rumours that Diana liked Allegra as a girl’s name though it may well not be correct. Meghan’s never mentioned the name.

How about Angelica? Or Bridget? I think they will surprise us with the first name. But if they follow the same route with Archie, the little girl won't have a foolish celebrity name ala Apple, North, Reignbeau, Breeze, Moon Unit...

I quite like Sienna but can’t imagine that would be picked. I do wonder whether Isla or Lily will be in the running though. Lily, as well as a whole host of late Victorian names, have become very popular in the UK over the last decade.

I wouldn't be overly surprised by Lily. I don't think Isla is a possibility simply because Peter Philips has a daughter named Isla. I think they'd avoid using a name that closely related. Granted, I don't believe middle names should follow the same convention. For example, I don't believe they'll use something like Charlotte, Louise, Isla, Savannah, Mia, or Lena simply because close relatives have those first names. However, they shouldn't and won't avoid something like a middle name of Diana or Elizabeth simply because she might share those with a cousin. I'm not sure I'm explaining it well but I feel like middle names are entirely fine to share while first names, at least for those closely related, should be unique or as unique as possible.

The cover of Star Magazine indicated that Meghan was expecting twin girls. It that is true, then twice the name guessing can be conducted.

Wouldn't they had already announced expecting twins if this would be true? And frankly I wouldn't trust very much such celebrity tabloid anyway.

Probably, since usualy with royal children there are patterns one can refer to, but they give the impression that they are not likely to go for a convetional choice.

I think Philippa, Elizabeth and Diana will be part of the names or Doriana (as Gloriana was the nick of Elizabeth I and then that of the Second of that name), so we would have a nice combination of the Grandmothers and of great-grandmother's nickname.

I doubt they are going to give 3 names and Philippa is IMO certianly not going to be one. Possibly Elizabeth Diana....

I will be seriously surprised if there's any kind of a "royal" connection in the names of this baby girl. I think the name will be classified as being one of totally American origin. [...]

Then again, I could be wrong. I often am.
