The christening will be held at a private chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wed in May 2018.

Flags and posers are out on full display in Windsor ahead of the event, with visitors eager to catch a glimpse of the royals.

The private ceremony will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Reverend Justin Welby, who married the new parents. He also conducted the christening of Archie’s royal cousin, Prince Louis.

There will reportedly be fewer than 25 guests in attendance and Prince Harry and Meghan have refused to release the names of his godparents in a break with royal protocol out of respect for their privacy.

The decision to host a private christening has been criticised by royal watchers as it follows a $4.3 million renovation to their Frogmore Cottage home that was funded by UK taxpayers.

However the Duke and Duchess have remained resolute in their desire to manage the media spotlight on their family, previously deciding their son would not have a royal title and refusing to do a photocall on the hospital steps after his birth as the Duchess of Cambridge did for all three of her children.

The images were taken by Chris Allerton, a trusted royal photographer, who also took their wedding photographs and the first pictures of the Sussex family after Archie was born.
