Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, will have their son, born on May 6, baptised in Windsor next month.

The couple have chosen St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle for the christening. The couple married there last year and Harry, aged three months, was baptised at the chapel in 1984.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild, will be two months old when his brow is doused from the lily font with water from the River Jordan.

The ceremony is expected to be a big event, but the Queen will miss the christening because of prior commitments.
