With Archie Harrison's baptism happening this weekend, royal fans are eagerly awaiting the details. We already know that the event will be private – which is not unprecedented in the royal family. It's also not surprising for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have made secret of their desire to raise their son as a private citizen.

[there are a lot of them.]
The insiders have been speculating for months over who Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will choose as godparents. Would it be the Obamas? Serena Williams? Princess Eugenie? Jessica Mulroney? The options are endless.
We already knew that Prince William was unlikely to serve as
godfather since he is already close to his nephew during his formative
years. Typically, royal family members don’t choose their siblings as godparents.
Now the royal family clarified that we are not going to find out the identity of Archie's godparents at all. A statement released by Buckingham Palace said: "Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will be a small private ceremony by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday 6th July. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex look forward to sharing some images taken on the day by photographer Chris Allerton. ”
The ending confirmed our
worst suspicions. It said, "The godparents, in keeping with their wishes, will
remain private. ”
Many new fans will remember that photographer Chris Allerton is the same person who captured the stunning images of the couple as they entered Archie to the world in early May, two days after his birth.
Even if we don't know who Archie's godparents are, there's now doubt that the day will be special and intimate, just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for it. We can wait to see snapshots of the joyous occasion!
