Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, celebrated his christening on July 6, 2019.
This was just over one year ago and released a family photo to mark the occasion.
The official portrait from 2019 was taken by photographer Chris Allerton in Windsor Castle’s Green Drawing Room, the famous one!
The photo shows senior members of the family, posing.
This includes Prince Harry’s aunts, Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale, who are sisters to the late Princess Diana.
Next to Lady Jane Fellowes is Doria Ragland, Meghan Markle’s mother.
It was reported that the Queen didn’t attend Archie’s christening because she had prior commitments.
Her Majesty was supposed to attend a lot of engagements in Scotland.
Also, Prince Philip wasn’t in attendance either.
It’s traditional for the Queen and Prince Philip to attend christenings of their great-grandchildren.
Remember when they did it for Princess Charlotte and Prince George?
Strangely enough, Louis’ christening in 2018.
Nonetheless, this was said to be mutually agreed-upon by Prince William and Kate Middleton.
However, there’s a book named “Royals at War: The Untold Story of Harry and Meghan’s Shocking Split with the House of Windsor”.
This was published in June and authored by journalists Dylan Howard and Andy Tillett.
It suggests that there is a bigger story behind the absence of the Queen and Prince Philip, than just being prior commitments.
A recent article states that “Pointedly, the Queen and Prince Philip stayed away” from the event.
