With christening ceremonies holding enormous importance for the new members of the royal family, people are speculating that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might break a few royal traditions, given their history of not adhering to the traditional ways things are done in.

While there will be no pictures from the press on the day, Harry and Meghan are expected to release one on their official Instagram account.

Dad Harry and new mom Meghan have been enjoying bonding time with their little one in private at the Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. The Queen is not set to be among them as she has prior commitments.

Archie's christening breaks from recent royal tradition in that the public will not be allowed to see the guests as they arrive, as Harry and Meghan are determined to maintain some privacy for their only son. Since he was born on May 6, the couple have guarded their baby boy's privacy, sharing only a couple of photos of the tot, without showing his whole face.

As those of us who did watch Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, Harry & Meghan: A Windsor Wedding, or controversial Lifetime movie Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, know, Markle is passionate about sports, at least when it comes to using them to aid wounded, injured or sick service veterans. The longtime daytime TV host is a close friend of the couple, and - like George - has also denounced the media's coverage of the new momma.

"Harry said they had a sleepless night".

It has since been reported that the Queen is planning to throw Meghan a party at her estate in Scotland to celebrate the Duchess' 38th birthday.

Indeed, Harry and Meghan's plans for Archie's christening are a stark contrast to Prince William and Kate Middleton's celebrations for their three children.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were appearing at the Yankees' clash with the Boston Red Sox at the London Stadium to promote the Invictus Games Foundation.
